Saturday’s Treasures

Went for a woodsy walk and spotted some elderberries (I think), thanks to my little “Flower Fairies of the Autumn” book. So I took a little snippet from the berry bush. While rummaging through a box of hippie clothes to a yard sale this morning I found this fabulous emeraldy green/ deep turquoise sparkly sari…perfect backdrop for my elderberries! I’m going to put it away in a box ’til spring.

And…and….today I got the most magical package from

The moonstone elven star was not a surprise, but the rest was! Just look at the key necklace! I love it all so much, thanks Jenn! The picture does not do the sterling silver jewelry justice, I will post better snapshots later.
I am going to wear the key tomorrow to the Medieval Festival at Fort Tryton Park, 190 street NYC. Then I’m going to hop on over to the Cloisters to view some of the tapestries, which always inspire me to no end. I am so psyched. Hopefully I will be able to take some pics of my Medieval adventure tomorrow and post very soon.
AND….to see the bag, which was a trade for the jewelry…

Yes, my faerie bag series is over. My last commission/ trade went out to Jenn. I love the way she came out, take a look:

Detail, with the flash

I have been growing, evolving, expanding and art has become an even larger part of my life. I will be moving on to different mediums and subjects.
I have a few bags left, will post on my LJ very soon. Most on the site are sold.
Right now I am working on a series of 6 handbound books to be used as daily sketchbooks. Next post will be the rest of the decorative papers…stay tuned!
