A brand New Year brings with it -
fresh new ideas and aspirations,
new hopes and dreams,
goals to achieve
new pages to turn in the journal of our lives
speaking of pages to turn
I want to share this most exquisite and treasured gift
of a fabric and lace journal
from a very dear and talented blogging friend
in Holland, named, Yvonne,
Yvonne, like me, is addicted to her sewing machine,
laces, fabrics, art paper etc.
and has magic in her fingers
I just wanted to share some of the 22 beautiful pages
in her journal here.
Pockets with pearls and
tiny tags of birds and nests
embroidered birds, fabric labels,
buttons, lace (new and vintage) sheer fabrics,
rose cotton fabrics, doilies, a bird's nest fashioned from fleece with
eggs of pearls, vintage hankerchiefs
and so very much more that
I think I will let the pages do the talking.
This "Bird" Journal is nothing short of breathtaking -
every single page!
What makes this even more precious to me is the fact that
nothing is physically easy for Yvonne
and these special projects
take many weeks to create
the very least I can say is
"Thank you so much Yvonne for the heartfelt hours
you have so lovingly given to creating this
masterpiece - I will really treasure it and keep it safe!"
I have a few more gifts to share but will leave for another
post when I will also share some of my new
artwork in progress.
Wishing for you all a most promising year full of
inspirational creativity to enjoy
share with everyone!
Thank you always for your gorgeous comments - they are
Love and hugs,
