{Etsy favourite store of the week: PaintedByRenee’s }

When I started this “project” I thought that, the most difficult things, it would have been to visit daily etsy to choose my faves stores… Fortunately, I’m still doing my research on etsy but, till now, I’ve received your emails with your description of your etsy stores and the pics of your objects.
I’m so happy about that because it means that you follow me and you appreciate my blog: that’s the most important things to me!

I’m delighted to have you as my one day’s Guest Star on my world!

This week my Etsy store is “PaintedByRenee’s


Renee wrote me a sweet email about her store and she ended it with ” I don’t think you’ll be disappointed” and she was totally right!!!

Her letter was so passionate, she described her life and her job with so much love that you could feel her enthusiasm for what she does. Thank you Renee! You have been really kind to me!

She’s native Californian, a self-taught artist, wife, mother, grandmother… She has been creating and painting for over 40 years … but she’s still a beauty young Lady!
