Art I've bought on Folksy (so far...)

If you wander around Folksy you will find a huge amount of art of all kinds.
My own main style is to use rubber stamps, inks and ephemera to make vintage style pictures and collages. I have only listed ACEOs so far, but am planning to add postcard sized art at some stage.
There is so much lovely art around I'd love to buy it all, but unless I win the lottery (unlikely, as I don't play it!) I will just have to either wait for occasions such as birthday or Christmas or if I'm desperate I'll allow myself a treat if I make a sale or two! This slightly defeats the object of me saving up any sale money for "essential" supplies such as new stamps or a Sizzix BigShot machine (one day!!) or making back the amount I have already spent on stamps and suchlike, which is quite a lot!
Before I go any further I should thank Brenda (Gweddus Art) for introducing the ACEO thread to the Folksy Forum and thus ACEOs to many people who hadn't heard of them! Hurrah!!
Anyhow, I thought I'd show you some of the art I've bought so far...

This was my first purchase, I love purple! It's a watercolour by the aforementioned Brenda at

I bought these two fab encaustic ones also by Brenda for my children

This one is from which I bought for my birthday. She makes lovely embroidered art in pretty colours, but despite loving them I'm not really a 'pink' person so requested one in red and black - it came out just right! Anyone who knows them can see it also looks like Meg White from the White Stripes, who are one of my favourite bands!!

I bought this set of prints from  as I just love the colours! I'm quite partial to a bit of purple!

The last two I got as presents for my daughter's birthday, which was on Friday. The first one is from  and is needle-felted.

This one is from and I asked Max if she could incorporate a star into one of her copper wire tree and polymer clay designs as my daughter hopes to open her own Folksy shop called Star Tree Designs when she is 18. 
She was really pleased with both her birthday ACEOs.

I hope you've enjoyed my little selection and I hope to show you more sometime!
