Giveaway: Oh Hello Dear!

Ooowee! We’ve got a particularly delicious giveaway this week, friends!  Thanks to Etsy gal about town, Carolyne Tillery, we are giving away five of her stunning prints from her Etsy shop, Oh, Hello Dear, at value of $60.

Who is this lovely lady behind the equally lovely art?  Well, growing up,  young Carolyne loved to read vintage children literature, not just for the stories, but for the delightful illustrations of children and animals.   She would spend her afternoons  just staring at the illustrations of Carolyne Haywood, Mary Blair, Hilary Knight, and Gyo Fujikawa to name just a few.  In her spare time, she frequently carried around her favorite children books and a sketch pad so she could sketch from the illustrations. Her beloved mama even held daily “observation time,” where she set aside an hour every day for her and her dear daughter to do nothing but observe and draw from one of their favorite illustrators.   Note to self for future fun with the Peach.  So, it should be no surprise to anyone that Carolyne wanted to grow up and illustrate children’s literature.

Sweet Carolyne went to college and got a Bachelors in Art History (so did I!)  in order to combine her love of art with her obsession with history and dates.  However, she didn’t really draw much then.  Our girl sort of hit a block where she no longer wanted to copy her favorite illustrators, instead, she wanted to be her own illustrator/person!

Fast forward a few years or so, things began to change for our young artistic heroine.  After the birth of her daughter almost three years ago, her love for vintage stories was rekindled as she read her favorite stories and shared their charming illustrations with her wee lass.   It rekindled in Carolyne a new desire to illustrate pictures that would delight her sweet girl.

So, Carolyne spent lots of time practicing, and after her  son was born this past winter, it seemed to her that she finally found my niche andher own delicious and sweet style.

And, she decided to share her beautiful and oh so charming prints on Etsy, at her shop,  Oh Hello Dear.  Her favorite item in her shop is “Favorite Story” because it reminds me of my children.

I know right? Adorable.
