For me, one of the wonderful benefits of being part of the Blog world is, without a doubt, the other Artisans I've had the privilege of meeting along my way. I mean...our planet is FULL of simply outrageous talent and I can't help but think it's a miracle of God that we all intersect at the corner of blogspot & dotcom.
A couple of weeks ago I got an email from a fellow blogger asking if I would share with her a graphic I had included on one of my past Posts. She was looking for a picture, one with something purple (maybe violets or pansies!) and I obliged her by forwarding her a clear copy of the vintage image she was wanting. I readily admit I'm stingy with SOME of my graphics ...but a few I willingly share! (Only the ones that are extremely rare or have to pay big $$$$ for are horded!) ahhahahh...
MADE BY SUCH TALENTED HANDS
Anyway...to my SHOCK (see...God rewards our gifts to others!) I received this simply GORGEOUS gift in the mail today! It is a little purse made by none other than Pat Winter herself! Not only does it showcase the image I emailed to her, but it is full of tiny bead work, beautiful silk hand embroidery, lovely laces and colorized motifs. In her note to me it said 'since I was a PINK GIRL if I wanted to I could forward it along'....HUH??? No way! This gorgeous masterpiece is staying here in my La Chaumerie de Briarwood.
Thank you, Pat! Your heart is much more generous than mine. I will treasure your gift always!
Please take the time to visit Pat via the link above. She has a lovely blog full of 2die4 things...
My second BRAG ABOUT Artisan is none other than Terri Smith. I love Terri's work and so happy we have become friends. Her painting is like none other and I sooo love her originality and the passion that shines through in all she creates. I can tell by the comments Terri makes on my Posts as well as the style in which she writes she has a heart full of sweetness. I hope you again will take the time to check out this talented woman's blog. You can find her at the link above!
Blessings as you seek to uncover your greatest passion...
