Lovely Art from Lovely Friends...

Today, as promised, I want to share with you the wonderful Fairy Art Box I won in the One World, One Heart giveaway!!! I came from Sweet Miss Terri over at Blooming Ideas. She has been such a sweetheart and I can't thank her enough for participating in OWOH and for offering up a fantastic giveaway. I took several photos because there are special treats on all sides, inside and out! And I got a secret message!!!! I hope Terri won't mind if I share with you because I wish it for you too:)

I love all the attention to detail she paid to every nook and corner of this piece. There are lovely surprises everywhere. Sweet little birds and flowers and fairy dust. The Fairy who lives inside is just as sweet as she can be and very friendly, by the way. She is enjoying Texas so much and wants me to say, "Howdy!" to you all:) Thank you so much Terri! Love, Jamie

The next Artist I wanted to share with you is Miss Colette Copeland from A Bird in the Hand. I purchased this Fiber art piece from her and it is the second art piece of hers that I own. I love it so much and it actually turned into a Valentine gift to myself this year. It also really spoke to me and comforted me the week we were dealing with my Father-in-law and the surgery.

I love all the different textures and fabrics she combined together. The deep red heart is a soft velvet and the lace has endless shapes and spaces for your fingers to travel upon. It is very tactile and I have yet to hang it because I enjoy holding it more right now. Oh! And the image of the girl and boy that she used is one from the FIT album! How cool is that?!! So thank you Sweet Colette for your wonderful talent and for sharing it with us. Love, Jamie
