Reetta Isotupa-Siltanen Postcards from Finland...

I collect postcards for my studio wall for inspiration.  If I was fabulously rich, I would collect originals, but alas, the next best thing are prints and postcards.  The latest addition to my collection comes all the way from Finland, via the artist Reetta Isotupa-Siltanen.  I first found out about Reetta on Ullabenulla's blog HERE.  Isn't her work charming?  CLICK HERE to visit her Etsy site and HERE to learn more about her and get a glimpse into her life.

Andrew, these are super cool! My favorites are the zebra with the typewriter and the knitting fox - such fab inspiration.

Can't wait to see you at B&B!!

Hey Mona and the Girls! Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you enjoy it. I have fun writing and putting it together!

Hey Jamie! I can't wait to see you at Bead and Button either! I'm looking forward to it so much. I miss you mountains!

I am particularly fond of the foxes. They remind me of Cynthia and Greg's dog, Kitsuni.

I was once sitting out on a porch in the Hamptons stargazing and looking at the fireflies out in the dunes. That's when a fox came around the corner and we locked eyes. For a moment we just considered each other. The next moment, the fox was on its way. Sometimes I wonder if I left an impression on the fox the same way it left one on me.
