I've come to realize that artists absolutely love artwork ~ not so much their own but other artist's artwork....especially if it's so very close to their own tastes, or even something that they might even create themselves....
Today I received a precious parcel in the mail, a thank you gift from my friend Marcie at The Rustic Victorian. When I opened my package, peeled back the wonderful brown tissue and saw what she sent me, my heart soared!!!!
Our tastes are so very similar ~ she so knows what I love and created a precious velvet egg that houses a wonderful old tassel with a bird image. Text lines the walls of the egg and the most amazing little vine frames the opening. It even has a little crocheted hanger!! I was studying the egg and peeking at all of the detail then I lifted the tassel and saw a most wonderful thing....my initial was in the very back of the egg! What a sweet surprise...
Then I opened the little bundle with the key on the front....look what it held ~ embellished spools that Marcie made with lace, twine and fiber on them!!
The back of the egg...just gorgeous ~
Even her tag ~
Marcie is an amazing artist if you want to check out her blog HERE. Thank you so very much Marcie for these wonderful art gifts ~
I just love them all and will treasure them always!!
Marcie recently introduced me to one of her friends as well, Coleen (or Queenie) that has just started her blog, Coleen's Reflections....she makes the most precious fairies!
Please stop by and welcome her to blogland ~
Emily brought this feather in to me the other day ~ she knew I would love it.....it's so wonderful to stop and see the beauty in such a simple thing as a single feather ~
Wishing you a great Thursday sweet friends!
