Kindness from a friend & a little mojo ~

Today in the mail there was an envelope from Canada!
I'm trying to think....who is sending me something?
Well, it was sweet Merne who had contacted me earlier wanting my address ~
she saw something that she knew I'd love and wanted to send it to me!!!

It is two of the most beautiful cards......they are just GORGEOUS!!
The photography is amazing and she said that
they reminded her of me and my blog.
They were created by an artist, Tara Wilkinson.
Not just the photography but the actual nests!!!!
Here is her website if you'd love to look at her work...

Thank you so very much Merne ~
I will keep them in my studio to inspire me sweet friend!!!

I've printed out some of Mary's images that I purchased in her store ~
Green Paper Packages.
I'm finally starting the bee assemblage!!!
I think the colors in these images will be perfect
for what I'm going to put together ~

I found a beautiful old hand mirror the other day, without the mirror!!!
What do you think it could become?
I have an idea....and I've just started getting it together!!

Oh and remember this neat find while I was out junkin'??

Finally. It has become this ~

I love repurposing things ~ it gives them a new life and gives me such joy ~

I hope you have an amazing Thursday dear friends!!
hugs and love,

Dawn, love the spice jars, very shabby chic. I would have passed them up at a flea market. Next time I go I'll look at everything with a different eye. You inspire creativity.

The nests are adorable. The mirror I cant wait for you to put that together. My idea was to put a family picture in where the mirror was. I have some silver mirrors at my I am going to grab one and do that. Your little spice bottles are soooooo cute.I dont know why I cant think of these things. Love looking at what you have done.You amaze me. Sally

Oh my my, those nests on her website are stunning! What a great art idea! I can hardly wait to see what you do with the mirror and the bees. Your talent knows no end.

Karen said...

LOVE THAT!!! Can't have too many containers of glitter!!! Isn't it amazing what can come from something old and kinda yucky? HA!

Dawn I love your "eye on the world" it would be so much fun junking with you - I could hold something up and ask, "What do you see?" and I would always be delighted and surprised by your answer.

I love the idea of repurposing things - it started when I inherited a stash of things from my Grandmother when she passed. I just couldn't bear to throw her things away so..... the challenge was on to find useful ways to live with her things. Some of them are still waiting in my basement....

The nests are gorgeous never underestimate the kindness of strangers....xo Julie

Your spice jars look fantastic! And how sweet is it that a fellow blogger saw something, thought of you, and then actually sent it to you?! That's why I love this blogging community so much, so many people with generous hearts.
All the best,
~ Anne

Oh that mirror is divine! I know it will be breathtaking when you are finished with it. And the condiment set is adorable. What a change is that! From brown & drab to white & lovely! MAGIC is what you create!

Sandi said...

That holder is so neat Dawn!!!!! I would have never thought of that idea. Some days I have great ideas and others...not so much!! lol
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful goodies with us!!

The transformation on those little jars is amazing!!
Thinking i better get busy and do something with the 40 or so i have! =0)

The nests are wonderful. Love the 'looseness' of them.
Wonder what she uses for her fine 'foliage'.
