What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Magic of Childhood

Thanks to a post on Leapup Blog, I recently discovered the remarkable paper collages of Natsula Designs. While designer Natasha Sorelli’s delicate pieces would obviously be a terrific addition to a child’s room or nursery, I would be proud to hang them in any room in the house! Her use of color, her skillful combining of elements of nature and fantasy, and her sense of innocence all work together to make truly joyful works of art.  They feel to me like a child’s view of the world, and that’s a feeling we could all do with a little more of.

If you’d like to know more about Natsula Designs, check out Leapup Blog’s interview. And I really recommend you check out Natsula Designs’ Etsy store.

  2. These are gorgeous. I think the one of the piano with the birds is particularly charming.


  3. Lovely. I particularly like the ones with faeries. I am planting Hawthorns on my farm so they have a place to live.

  4. I love these. I offer you this fine artist’s work as another look at paper cutting, equally whimsical, but quite different. I think you’ll find her work qualifies as OBT. By the way, she is, as a person, also OBT.


  5. These are exquisite. I want one of each!

  6. Especially the swallowtail birds and the swallowtail butterflies. When we owned a little ranchette (LOL!) we called it swallowridge because we were on a ridge and entertained the swallowtail butterflies and the barn swallows.
