LUCKY ME!

I am thrilled to be the blog give-away winner of this beautiful silk art book hand made by artist, Noela Mills.   Along with gorgeous artists' books, the lovely Noela also creates beautiful paintings and jewelry, as well  as exquisite scarves and fiber pieces.  The little book has many "pages" made from delicate silk that she has waxed, and each features lovely hand stitching. It is all bound together with  driftwood, sewn with tiny beads. It really has to be seen in person to appreciate its delicate nature and beauty.  Oh, what excitement and delight when I opened the package sent all the way from Australia, and unwrapped the little book, and hand made card! What a thrill!    Thank you Noela! Lucky me!

Hurrah for you, Cynthia, and indeed for the generous Noela - it looks as though a great deal of creativity and care went into that lovely book.

thank you for visiting my blog - this is a return visit. I love that note book. I make notebooks sometimes but would never either dare or be able to make something so 'free' - I really envy people who can do that. Do pop over and see me again.

C- isn't it great that the world can be so small in a way - small in a beautiful way - like when you can receive a creation from Noela from the other side of the globe. Well done.B

wonderful!! this is an amazing creation!
so glad you had fun in FoCo! I will be speaking to Meg soon and I am sure your name will come up... thanks for stopping by the store.
she has a lot of older work now and she seems to be selling it well... I am wanting to go in a more non traditional abstract way... so we will see how she does with the new stuff...
always fun stopping by your place! ciao, dear one!

hi cynthia,

thank you for your nice words at my place! that blue pattern just popped right up there! i was surprised and delighted!

so i've just figured out that i can't respond to your comments via e-mail because you don't have an e-mail addy associated with your blogger account. i've e-mailed you in the past (replying to comments), but now i know that you never got them! anyway, in case this is useful information, i thought i'd pass it on...

xoxo
