About Me

I'm Emilia, a scrawny fairy girl with curly pixie hair and sea-coloured eyes. I live in a tiny but cozy apartment filled with pressed flowers, books, postcards and lace. I'm obsessed with vintage clothes (1920s - 1950s) and all things fairy-like & dainty. I love to pay attention to the gentle things in life and I often find myself dreaming of hidden meadows, quiet days & forests filled with songbirds & moss. I love taking forest walks and venturing out at night to see the stars and moths and rabbits. I also like to spend time at libraries, art museums & cute little cafés.

Drawing, writing letters and reading books are my dearest hobbies. I'd love to work as a librarian or a museum assistant one day but we'll see where this life leads me.

Overall I'm just a weird art girl wearing goofy clothes, collecting postcards and sipping tea in the afternoon.

Comment: Your answers were so interesting! You sound like our daughter - very sensitive and artsy. I'm sure you would like Jesus - he is very sensitive, loving, patient and protective! I like your description of the toy with the child's face! Whoever thought of that was very clever! Thanks again for sharing!!!!!

Hello this is my favorite painting :) by Edgar Degas

Hello! Swap: Art lovers - Newbie Friendly

The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. I have always been a fan of the water since I was younger and to me, this image conjures up emotions of contentment of being in the water but fear of the unknown below it.
