Author Spotlight- Marie Letourneau

04 Mar, 2011 by in etsy, postcard giveaway 23 comments

With the release of the book Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Catherine Hardwick and the movie debut just a week away I started searching the ETSY world for some great Red Riding Hood giveaways. I ran into author and illustrator Marie Letourneau who’s artwork is absolutely dreamy!

Fans of Little Red, like us, will adore her etsy shop Le French Circus “Bonjour Mon Ami! My name is Marie Letourneau, I live in New York and I am a children’s book author and illustrator. My book, “The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Freres” won Foreword Magazine’s Book of The Year Award in 2006 and was featured on an episode of ACE OF CAKES on Food Network. (Yes, Duff and the gang from Charm City Cakes made me a cake based on my book! Tre fun and delicious!) It’s for sale here in my shop (the book – not the cake. We already ate that)
I would like to introduce my two children, Hannah and Alexander. Both artists and musicians. From time to time they create pieces they would like to sell (I indicate this in the listing) Right now Hannah has listed the Paris Note Cards and Mannequin Print. Overall, I hope you find something exciting that suits your tastes! Enjoy and adieu! “

Marie has donated a pack of her postcards for our readers!

Description: From an original painting by me (Marie) postcards of lovely Miss Riding Hood! Our dear Red makes her way (a little apprehensively) through the forest and over to grandmothers house. 8 glossy, professionally printed post cards with rounded corners. Back of post card has an aged-antique design by me too. Size: Standard 4.5 x 5.5 inches with envelopes

Handmade Wolf Brooch

28 May, 2010 by in UK, wolf 18 comments

Introducing today’s wolfy giveaway donated by LoveFromHettyandDave…”Born on the South Coast of England in the late seventies, and raised on a diet of sequins, buttons, ribbons and thread, it was inevitable that Zoe Larkins, the designer behind the brand, would develop her first crush on a Singer…

Inspired by Mexican Arts and Crafts, 1950’s Tattoo Designs and Kitsch, as well as current trends, each item is cut and stitched by hand, in high quality soft leather, achieving a one off and somewhat naïve look, which lends a refreshing alternative in this age of mass manufactured fashion jewellery.

Celebrity fans include Amy Winehouse, whose Love From Hetty & Dave ‘Blake’ brooch has become an iconic addition to her beehive…

All items are designed, made and sent from the UK, and come packaged in a smart black box, with pink satin ribbon.

You can see the full range at or every Sunday at Spitalfields Market, London.

One little note: The hummingbird is very special to us and I would like to share the story. For over 10 years we have had a pretty little hummingbird feeder in our yard, hanging from the Dogwood tree. We keep in filled with sweet nectar and red ribbons flowing from the bottom and still there were no hummingbirds. Kept the vigil going, but still no rapid winged beauties appeared. Well just about 3 years ago, my mother (Sue) who lived with us since we were married and who we cared for for over 10 years when she became basically bedridden passed away. Well you can imagine how distraught we all were and especially me. I didn’t know what to do to calm myself down, I prayed which of course helped so much but I made a secret wish, I asked my mother to send me a sign to let me know she was ok. Of course I would not ask something that was easily accomplished so I asked her to send me a hummingbird and that way I knew she was in a wonderful place. Well, I told NO ONE of this wish! Absolutely NO ONE. A week after she had passed, my husband and son were in the backyard and i heard these screams! MOM get out here, you have to see. I flew outside and there was a hummingbird fluttering at the feeder…FIRST TIME EVER! Can you imagine my delight and when I told the family they were in “happy tears”. So the hummingbird is so special to us all and I love to share this uplifting story with everyone…a little bit of hope goes a long way.
