This was such an unexpected surprise - click on the image to take in all the detail she added to the piece ... simply a postcard? I think not! This is definitely a remarkable piece of workmanship - I love the added thread work and the little beaded touches.
Maggie drew her inspiration from a photograph that I took:
To see the rest of the photo's from that day, feel free to visit THIS post.
Thank you, Maggie!
In other happy news, not one, but two lovely ladies were kind enough to bestow the Sisterhood Award on me. I have to admit that I am still uncomfortable with these kinds of awards, but this award is presented to blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude ...something I strive to do ... and is from two ladies that I admire quite a lot ...
Sue from Barton Originals has me drooling over her latest "Kindred" doll series - you really need to shoot on over HERE and check them out. Be prepared, you just might fall in love.
Michelle from the Studio at Crow Haven Farm, well, she simply delights and amazes me with all of her creations and her super generous personality - you can visit Michelle right HERE ... and don't be surprised if you find yourself wanting to shop.
The requirements of accepting this blog are:
1. put the award logo on your blog and/or post
2. nominate five other blogs that you feel show the spirit of the award.
3. to let the nominees know about the award, comment on their blog.
4. Link to the nominees in your blog post.
5. To show gratitude and friendship to the person that gave you the award, link to them in a blog post.
I just can't narrow this down to five people - everyone I visit teaches me and inspires me to keep on keepin on - try new things - be brave & simply try ... in light of this, I'm offering the Sisterhood Award to you all (you too, Seth, you can be an honorary sister!).
