Felix Doolittle Giveaway!

Felix Doolittle has become an EOS holiday staple gift source, which delights me to no end as they are a darling local Newton, MA based company that creates beautiful illustrated paper goods (also, Oprah named them “her favorite stationery” too so, you know, there’s THAT).  This year we feature them again, not only because so many of you loved them too, but also because they have new items available this season perfect for gifting (and also, because I love supporting small businesses like this!)

One of the new items they have are larger 16″ x 20″ art prints of Felix’s watercolors.  I can’t get over how gorgeous they are, and I was so interested to find out about Felix Fu’s story behind his amazing talent.  His passion for drawing began as a youngster growing up in Hong Kong where to be appointed a provincial government official in China, the candidate had to excel in painting, calligraphy, and poetry– Felix’s grandfather was one such an official. But as generations and the local culture changed, Felix’s continued love of drawing and the arts was not encouraged, especially as he often chose to draw instead of concentrating on the lesson at hand in school, or later, drawing instead of doing his homework. He kept his drawings small so they could be easily hidden by a cupped hand.  And his love of painting and drawing in small scale grew from there!  So now painting on an 8′ x 10″ sheet of paper feels absolutely HUGE to him!

Here are some of the large prints on a wall!

Today I get to give away THREE of the large prints to three lucky winners!  Perfect for children’s rooms or powder rooms (or to give someone as a gift this season!)  You can see them all here (only the first 10 are available large- the animals are not yet!). To enter please comment on which one you would like and I will pick winners tomorrow!

And naturally, stationery.  Lovely, personalized stationery will NEVER go out of style, nor will kind handwritten letters and notes!

For those who are local and would like to see the items in person- they opened an adorable shop in West Newton called The Paper Mouse!  Stop in to pick up some goodies or perhaps take a calligraphy class!
