Artist Nancy Brittelle has an interesting story, she’s moved her artistic focus from these realistic watercolors to more modern art from made recycled materials. Either way, she’s a talented artist and based around my sweet, little hometown in North Carolina to boot!
I’ve had this pack of beautiful cards with watercolor garden scenes for probably seven or eight years. Saving them for a special occasion, I’ve kept them on top of my stationary collection all these years – moving from home to college to my own home with my husband. With some old adage repeating in my head — Don’t wait for a special occasion – every day is special! (Isn’t there one that goes like that?) — I finally used the first one in March to write a note to a lady I’d met at the Davidson Horticultural Symposium. I started thinking that these cards are so beautiful and unique I should just frame them, if I’m not going to actually use them. So use them I will.
