Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!! i'm a few days late but i'm really not into the whole new year thing, but i have used this new decennia and full and blue moon to set some changes into motion.

I started using the name Pretty Things about 8 years ago, my brother was starting up my website and he needed to typ in a name but i had never thought about it and just quickly said Pretty Things, thinking i might change it later. as it happened, Pretty Things turned out to be a cool name that people liked and after a few years i added on the 'life is filled with....', i can't remember why but it just kind of happened one day.

now i am not in the same place as 8 years ago, alot has hapened in my life! i mean ALOT! not all god but not all bad.

my art is changing, i am moving in different directions and sooooo i wanted to change a few things. i want to start and Etsy store, not right now but i have reserved my name:

{Rusty Angel Art}

so i added it on with my blog title. where does this name come from? well, i was born op North of England, Hexham to be more specific, raised in Throckley, Newcastle. we have a huge piece of art up there (in Gateshead) called the Angel of the North aka the rusty angel seeing it actually is all rusty now.

so i wanted to link to my roots and seeing that i love angels, paint angels due to the lovely Suzi Blu (best class ever!!!), know all about rusty things like rusty faith for one lol... don'task, i'm working on it

i like the new name and i think it suits me.

i am going to keep "life is filled with pretty things" on though seeing that i do really think my life is filled with lots of pretty, beautiful, wonderful things.
so 2010 is getting into swing! hope you are all well and keeping to those resolutions you might have made lol! i never make them.


  1. Hey there. Happy New Year to you too! I don't make resolutions either. However, I am determined to complete some half-finished (half-started??) projects I have laying around. I have a need to tidy up - SIMPLIFY - as my friend Kim says.
    Love your new name - Rusty Angel Art. Of course, I love the old/current name as well!! I will follow your link and see where the Angel of the North takes me....

  2. Happy New Year Tanya, I love the name Rusty Angel Art - it suits you - hey 1 month and I can see your rusty hair and pretty things (angels of course) again.
    Big hugs
    Dizzy blonde Sue xx or should that be ditsy!!
    ps where's your calendar for Kate's 365 day challenge??

  3. Love the new name...sometimes we just need to re-invent our selves!

  4. Hey my friend. I hope all is well with you and that the "rusty angel" is watching over you!!

  5. Ah, I just love the Angel of the North - pass it often.Now I shall think of you every time I am passing it :-)
