Lovely art received....

I cant believe my luck.... I won this beautiful collaged paperweight after visiting Lani Kents blog, Healing Expressions. It is the most beautiful paperweight, click on the picture to take a closer look at all of the wonderful detail. Thank you Lani, I love my gift!!! Lani creates beautiful art, so please visit. This next piece of art I purchased from Baumcat. I purchased this from her etsy shop as it really struck a cord with me when I saw this piece. I was taken with the four interlinked celtic hearts... you see, we are a family of four, my husband Paul and sons Matt and Sam. I loved the title too "Rejoice". Thank you Baumcat, I love my mini quiltie... so beautiful and so special. Lots of beautiful hand stitching and embellishing on a quilted background and the celtic hearts are the perfect finishing touch.
Next I thought I should share some of my art.... but as I have nothing to show from my efforts this week I thought you might like to see some 4" x 4" collages I made last year for a swap on a Yahoo group. I love green, so when flicking through my old photos and these caught my attention. It was a fantastic swap and I received back some gorgeous pages....mmmmm will have to take a photo of those too!
Its not that I havent been creating this week..... I have ! Just a couple of things I cant show for a while as they are for friends. Plus I have been working on another fabric page for Martha Browns book, The Secret Garden and also a journal page. They will soon be finished and will then have something current to show you.

Take care in blogland and happy creating !
