And The Winner Is......

I am at Sue's house. Worked up to the last minute and then hopped the plane yesterday.
Tomorrow we are leaving for London!
I have been delinquent with this blog over the past many days (!) Sorry about that.

The result of the "giveaway" from last week is: LINDA in New Mexico
Since I am on the way "Over The Pond"...let's get together when I get back, okay?
I will have stories from seeing Becky, too, so there will be so much to talk about.

Here are some of the things I have been working on instead of posting on the blog.
Some of them will be at the Lavender Festival at Los Poblanos in Albuquerque this weekend and the others will be at Curiosa in Santa Fe......It feels good to have them finished.

To commemorate my return to France this summer, this box is covered in pages from a French book and the flag says, "S'il Vous Plait"

Dark braids, wide brimmed hat and a big basket......looks a bit like me when I was younger.

Another bird box, covered in copies of letters from my Greek grandmother. I found them when I was helping Mom go through things in her house. They are just beautiful - her handwriting is/was beautiful. It means a lot to me to be able to use them.......

This little one has gone fishing! When she "appeared" she made me smile.....

Here's a pixie carrying a bunch of lavender. I think her wings are rather delightful. I can't wait to make some more of these winged creatures!

This young thing might just fly away with the bird on her hand......she looks pretty happy....

And a big bouquet of flowers graces this young lady's box. The photo doesn't do her justice, though - not too photogenic. (tee hee)

I feel like they are all members of my little family and they are spreading a little bit of joy.
Following my heart has given me such purpose and fulfillment. I have read about that for years.
I didn't believe it, really. It sounded too easy, or crazy......but it works.
Try it.


  1. I am so excited. I would love to get together with you and you can tell me about my dear one from Sweden. I have joked and said she is the love child I never had in Europe. I love her so very much.
    Have fun with all of the lovely ladies that you will be seeing in France. I shall envy from afar. I won, I won, I won. I just love your work and this is the best. Thank you so much.
    Please give Becky a special hug from The Olde Bagg

  2. Congratulations to my lovely Linda!
    Amazing new papier mache' characters, Jone!

    I WILL call when ~I get home, though I will need your number.....
