Artist Appreciation - ThoreauFair

Hi there! I have a very special shop to share with you today; ThoreauFair! This is a shop that is inspired by nature-- whether through the lens of the camera, or recycled items saved from a landfill. This shop also has other hand crafted items such as upcycled fabrics, crocheted baby clothing, and handmade cards and tags!
"My name is Earl, and my shop is ThoreauFair. The title of my shop is a play on words, using one of the greatest American writers and philosophers, Henry David Thoreau. I spend hours of my free time in nature, and that was the inspiration for my shop since I always carry a camera. Most of my photographs are a reflection of the natural life, and things that some may never see if they were living in a city environment."
"Every day, I grow spiritually from the nature that I have captured. I love looking at it, and remembering my moods or favorite parts of that particular walk through life. What makes my photographs important, is that they are my view on life, and I hope to inspire others to get out, enjoy the fresh air, greet the day, and walk on the wild side."
"Nature is all around us, but some never see it, or have the ability to see it from an apartment window or big city.
We use nature, we need it, and it needs us.
This was started with a camera, a love for the great outdoors, a friend giving me a chance, and a dream."

 If you know me at all, you know how much I adore nature photography and how much I like to pretend that I am a nature photographer. So all of Earl's nature-related prints have a special place in my heart (and my wishlist!).

And with the holidays fast approaching, here are some giftable goodies available in Earl's shop as well:

And, my own personal passion, paper crafts!

What is your favorite item in ThoreauFair
Thank you so much to Earl for helping with this feature!


  1. The focus on that photography is amazing! I love nature as a subject, beautiful shop. I think my favourite item is the set of greetings cards, I found it hard to pick my favourite out of all the photographs so I picked a set, is that cheating? :P

  2. Thanks for introducing us to this shop - those are fantastic photographs! I love the flower with bokeh in the background and the sunlit waves is amazing :)

  3. Thanks for this post. I love the bark photograph, but there is something about the skyscraper with the moon that I like, too.

  4. Thank you for the excellent feature, and the wonderful comments. It is the best compliment any artist will receive.+

  5. I agree with Duni, the flower with the Bokey is amazing! And the bark looks like a beautiful painting.

  6. Her photographs are just beautiful and I love her quilled snowflake!

  7. Those pictures are stunning, especially the moon one!

  8. Absolutely love the photos! Lovely shop with a lot of variety. Happy Thanksgiving!
