Guest Post: By Chassity

Hi there! Chassity here from Look Linger Love popping in to talk about my art fetish.  We all know and desperately love Jen's Cocoa & Hearts shop, so today I thought I would introduce you to some more amazing artists that I think you'll love as well.  

These pieces are fabulous, and naturally, they're all "made by girls".  Very talented ones.  In fact, I think you'll highly approve of this first artist!

Kate is a Charleston, SC girl (like me!) and I just so happen to have the privilege of calling her a friend.  She was one of the very first artists that really struck my fancy, and my love for her art has only grown. 

I recently did a Q&A with Kate on my blog that you might want to check out if you're liking what you see.  {It's definitely not one of those boring "tell me what inspired this piece" type of interviews!}.

You might be familiar with her hystericaly awesome blog, My Favorite & My Best aka MFAMB, but have you seen her paintings?  Jenny recently started sharing her work, and I'm a huge fan already.  And considering she's new, I'd say right about now is the time to invest if you know what I mean.

If you need to glam up your space on a limited budget then Leigh Viner's etsy shop is great place to peruse.  She sells originals and prints so there is something there for everyone.  And don't you just feel prettier looking at these?

I love Kate's softness in the background that is then overlapped with scribbles (I'm sure she wouldn't describe them that way though, ha! Sorry Kate).

My daughter Lilly is lucky enough to have a couple of pieces by Kate in her nursery.  Someday she'll thank me.

I started an impressive little collection of Sally's paintings.  She is another Charleston girl, another friend of mine, and seriously rocks my world.  I pretty much adore everything that she turns out.  I also did a Q&A with Sally {it's not the sucky boring type either} that you should definitely check out as she is one stylish girl to get to know.

Here I am along side the lovely Sally with a piece of hers that my husband purchased for me at one of Sally's shows.

Lilly Evans:

Lastly, what kind of mother would I be if I didn't share some of my baby girls' abstract masterpieces? I'm her biggest fan.

So I think I've taken over Jen's blog long enough.  I hope you've enjoyed this art tour today and have found some new artists to love.  I hope ya'll come see me sometime.  

Thanks for inviting me today, Jen.  xoxox, Chassity.
