Nixies for Nolwenn ♥

Do you get this sometimes ? You read something somewhere and it just takes a little life of it's own. It started with a post I read by Nolwenn Petitbois, a fellow artist from Vancouver-Canada. She was stuck making up a suitable name for the girls she paints and she asked for help. Now I like to play with words and names and thought Nolwenn's Nixies sounded kinda cool, so I suggested this to her...... and she picked my name !!! Then as a prize for my winning suggestion I got to choose a print of one of her girls. Well, choosing from her collection of whimsical Nixies for me was as difficult as choosing a name  had been for her... I ended up choosing "Amelia" the daydreamer for reasons of....well.....I also do dream quite a bit, hehe. Check out her site here and visit the Innervoices world of Nolwenn yourself.
 Oh, and here is Amelia...she'll be on her way to me soon, I can't wait to meet her :) Anyway with my brushes not wanting to do what's in my head for the last couple of days, maybe I am better with words and names and should start writing that book.....
