Link Library with Melanie

  In the spirit of this month's challenge inspiration of William Morris and his Arts and Crafts/ Art Nouveau designs, I went back into the archives to find an interview with and artist whose work is reminiscent of the art of that time period, Gabriel Studios.  Read the interview from 2008 here

And now here are some of our blogger friends' links!
