I want to thank Terry's Fabric for featuring a couple of my posts on their design blog recently!

I generally consider myself a pretty private person and don't want to ever be "one of those" who over-expose and publish every mundane little detail of their existence. However, I just married the love of my life at the perfect relaxed beach ceremony and figured that might warrant a mention to share with my peeps here on Annechovie. You readers have been such a part of my life these last few years and I am so grateful for your support & kindness. I'm on my honeymoon, but will continue to have fresh content posted and feel free to keep up with me here

All orders will be shipped upon my return. Take care and see you soon!!

Wow. I can hardly believe it's been 6 years since I started this little blog!
It's been a great vehicle for growth, networking, sharing my work and getting to meet so many of you.
I am thankful for all of God's blessings in my life during the past 7 years. Even the trials, challenges and very difficult times as well as the triumphs and joys. Thanks to all of you for your support - it has meant so much.
As Annechovie turns 6 and I face an exciting new chapter in my own life, I am challenged to perk things up around here and share more as the days go on. 
Please stay tuned and thanks so much for being a part of my life and work!

I am really into colorful food and these sandwiches (via Pinterest via Honestly Yum) look like little masterpieces to me. I always find myself drawn to small plates, tapas, tea sandwiches and sushi. If I weren't an artist, I'd be a decorator or a chef. There is such scope for creativity, not to mention that I love eating! You could make these as hors d'oeuvres or an entire meal. Find the recipes for these scrumptious ricotta crostini here.
Hope you have a scrumptious weekend!

Design-wise, I am a dichotemy. Part of me loves tried & true traditionalism and the other part of me digs the cutting edge, offbeat and innovative. I guess enjoy stuff that manages to satisfy both. 
How's this for putting a hip spin on a classic? Just another great find on Etsy- the neon cuckoo clock. 
Find it here.

One of my customers in NYC sent me this photo of their growing Annechovie ginger jar print collection.
This nice woman is a PR guru with a penchant for blue & white. She just bought 2 more framed ginger jars to even up her collection. Find them all here in my shop.

I just finished this painting featuring diagonal neon pink stripes and a gilded pineapple. It's available here
Have a fantastic weekend!!

Kate Lewis

I have long been a fan of Uncommon Goods and their range of nifty and eclectic gifts. I was somehow unaware that their selection included art until I recently discovered that they carry the work of some great artists, one of whom many of us in the blogosphere are quite familiar - one of our own community, Kate Lewis. I discovered Kate via a blog a couple of years ago and and she even comments here on Annechovie from time to time. Love her style and use of color!
Another artist I was unfamiliar with is Zlatka Paneva. She is based in Los Angeles and blends both pop art/surrealism to work her magic portraying members of the animal kingdom.

Be sure to check out all the latest art from Uncommon Goods here, you'll be glad you did and might be able to find some great solutions for this Summer's busy gift-giving occasions.
