My Old Country House by Lesli Devito

Good morning! How was your 4th of July? My Dad made his famous, fall-off-the-bone ribs and we all hung out around the pool eating, swimming, and enjoying a rare opportunity to just relax and take in a moment of summertime bliss. We opted out of going to a live fireworks show – my little one still goes to bed early (a fact I love!) – so it was TV fireworks for me.

Today it’s ‘back to business’ and I am happy to introduce you to my lovely friend Lesli Devito – not only does she have a beautiful old Virginia Farm House that she blogs about at My Old Country House, she is also an amazingly talented artist as you can see from these photos of her work:

Custom pet portraits by Lesli DevitoShe specializes in custom pet portraits like these darlings {shown above}. I dream of having her do one of my beloved Mikayla one day…. who, even though she is gone, will always be with me.    :-)

But Lesli doesn’t stop there! She also paints whimsical farm animals like these!

Farm Animals by Lesli DevitoAren’t they delightful?! You can view her current inventory of paintings for sale and learn more about her custom paintings by visiting her site here.

Her blog is also filled with lots of inspiration for bringing color into your home.

Pops of Yellow from My Old Country HouseI am crazy about this yellow chair and lamp! I have a lamp I really, really want to paint after seeing this. It doesn’t hurt that it’s sitting on a stunning chest of drawers either!

Pink Bookcase in Living Room at My Old Country HouseI adore this pink cabinet in her living room and I guess I’m not the only one because…

My Old Country House blog in June 2012 issue of House Beautiful!… her pink cabinet is featured in the June 2012 issue of House Beautiful magazine!!!!

Please stop by her blog and tell her I sent you!

Happy Thursday!
