Design Delights from Fronella (& Win!)

I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect babyshower present for my sister – not one that is run of the mill but something that is special, sentimental and that will last… So when she mentioned she had stumbled across a print she liked I told her to stop right there and go no further. It was going to be my gift for my soon-to-be-born niece!

The gorgeous print in question is by Paula Mills from Sweet William and stocked in South Africa by Fronella Designs. There are one of a number of lovely illustrations in gorgeous watercolours and ink. The prints come as posters, framed or block mounted (and as cards!) Any one would make a very special gift!





Tea and hope

Fronella also offers beautiful stationary bits and bobs such as washi tape, lace stamps, quirky paper clips, pretty stickers, wooden heart pegs, gift tag booklets. Basically loads of cute little goodies that make great gifts for friends or youself! Stationary pretties make my creative heart sing…. I may not be able to draw but I sure can make a kick ass washi tape card 😉

  1. Liked the fb page.
    Already a fan of yours!

    LOVE the ‘Where there’s tea there’s hope’ print!!!


  2. A fan of yours for a while now! Liked the Frontella page 🙂 I love the ‘She climbs mountains’ print! I have 2 girls and I think this is a fantastic reminder of what they can achieve 🙂

  3. ‘A 100 hearts would be too few’ would be PERFECT for my little girls room!! Second choice is ‘A tree is like a mother’s love’. These prints are all so beautifull!! Fingers crossed x

  4. These illustrations are unbelievable. I want them all!

    My favourite though, and it’s a difficult one, is ‘touch’ aka ‘Come with me to touch the sky’. ‘Blue Owl’ is so adorable too!

  5. An avid fan of yours on twitter and regular reader of your blog.

    Liked both FB pages.

    I’d love to have a print of the ‘ a tree is like a mother’s love..’ I think it says a lot and reminds us of how special mums are!

  6. I’d love to win ‘Up early with the birdies’ 🙂 It would look beautiful up on the wall in my daughter’s (1 years old) room 🙂

  7. I first came across these prints at last year’s Kamers Vol Geskenke and have been wanting to get the “just a matter of time’ print since!

  8. I know my little one would love the blue owl but seeing as Im hoping to find some inspiration and paint him an owl canvas for Christmas I have to go with one that touched my heart and thats -A tree is like a Mother’s Love Print.

  9. Tough choice – the circus print is my favourite – she’s a little girl who can do anything she wants to – no limits. Also I love elephants. Liked both pages.

  10. Awesome competition! Well my Favourite item from the Sweet William collection happens to be the Blue wash protea. Tweet about giveaway (@flutterbymegs) and liked both the Facebook pages! Fingers crossed 🙂 xxx

  11. Oh how do you choose one print? So many beautiful prints. 100 heart, flying with angles and the tree.

  12. would like the a tree is like a mothers love print for my wife, she would like it so much, could put it under the tree for her.

  13. Have liked your page ages ago and have liked Fronella Designs 🙂

    They are all just too gorgeous! But have managed to narrow my favourites down to three from the online stores: “Dance with the Wind”, “Come with me to touch the sky” and “Love is Free” -can you tell I ADORE balloons!!

  14. I love her “as light as a feather print” on the website, its a beautiful design… they are all amazing.
    I love to draw and paint myself, I come from a long line of artists, my mother is a fine arts graduate and my grandparents have been carving and creating and oil painting since they were born.
    Im a big fan and know what it takes to produce such beautiful pieces.
    Like and love both facebook pages:)

  15. I just love the a 100 hearts would be to few!!!! Would put it in my bedroom so that every night before my hubby goes to sleep he can read it and know it’s true
