Creations that will take your breath away ~

The wonderful thing about blogging is always discovering a new blog, a new friend and artwork that takes your breath away! I'm inspired by others, not so much to duplicate but just to create myself....to see beauty, makes me want to produce beauty.

A sweet new friend of mine, Marcie (who will be blogging very soon I hope) emailed me with a link to artist Diana Frey's Flickr album. I clicked over, started looking, gasped....and was just amazed at the beauty of her pieces and then I discovered that she had a blog as well!!

Just take a look at these beautiful pieces and see if you feel the way I do about them.
You can visit Diana's blog HERE ~

Another wonderful thing happened this week. Diana emailed me after my post about Willow Nest and Linda Marcov ~ and how Linda was so encouraging to me when I just began creating. Well, Diana and Linda know one another, worked together and Diana said that Linda was an inspiration to her as well!! Thank you so much dear Linda ~ you truly are an inspiration angel.

It's amazing that by just saying an encouraging word or a sweet word of praise, you can lift others up and inspire them more than you ever realize.....

Take a look at what I found today at the thrift store ~ a cradle for the little one!!! AND it was only 14.99!!! OK, I know it doesn't have a base but our son Brent is so wonderful with making things I'm sure he can whip up a base for it so it will be elevated off the floor. Now I want to measure the inner dimensions so I can sew up some tiny bumper pads and sheet for the small mattress!! I think it's solid cedar, it sure is heavy!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
xxoo, Dawn

Good Morning Dawn... Oh my the jewelry is just beautiful and the cradle is so charming...your posts as always so enjoyable.... I haven't been a good blogger lately... I just seem to have so many side tracks as we all do trying to ready for the holidays. My body doesn't like the word hurry anymore.... I will be cleaning house for all the family to arrive tomorrow... We have a combined family .... Just wanted to wish you and your family a happy and very peaceful Thanksgiving gathering... I have been reading alot of other bloggers are having job losses and insurance losses and many stressful times in their lives.... My heart and prayers go out to them.... Thanks again for all the lovely creating and moments of your life you share....

Dawn- First, thank you. I felt that hug come through. :)
Now, that jewelery is beautiful. I will be checking out her blog today. (Along with baking pumpkin pies.) And please, that cradle? It was meant to be yours!! It will be absolute perfection when you are done, no doubt.

Love the cradle! The only thing that will make it look even sweeter is that beautiful little baby sleeping in it!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh Dawn, Diana's work is incredibly beautiful! I'll be looking at her blog today!

Love the cradle! What a find! Even though it lacks rockers. That's an easy fix! I can imagine what you are going to do with this to make it very, very special!

Stay tuned to my blog later today! Your interview will be up and running! I'm going to work on getting it posted right now! I'm so proud and happy to feature you!
Please announce it on your blog!
