Lisa is a very dear and long time friend of mine, and this wonderful friend ,send me a gorgeous birthday gift all the way from Texas !

This picture, made from nature finds, she collected in Colorado, and the sweetest old 
photo of a little girl. Isen`t it amazing,- I think it is a gorgeous gift , and even more 
special, knowing Lisa herself found it all , on her vacation.

And then this beautiful weaved purce, that Lisa made herself ,too-
and also had a workshop for,  -for  people lucky enough, to live near enough to attend.
I have so admired this gorgeous purces ,- and she so dearly 
gifted me one, and also the explanation and the frame to make one myself!!
Isen`t this lovely, with the attatched birdie image, and all the extra laces put inside !!

And then she even added a beautiful handfull of other laces too!!

Here you see the frame for weaving behind  a lovely old button card!
some gorgeous sparkling buttons ,  and a letter H...stencil.
Also a book cover frame, for me to create with and decorate , and 
behind it all you can see a gorgeous piece  of special transfer "paper" 

Close up of the sparkling buttons, the old button card -and the
H- stencil, and under here the sweetest  old photo of a darling girl,in such a lovely frame 

You overwhelmed me with your special and amazing art pieces and all the extra
beautiful gifts,- you are such a wonderful artist that I admire and feel blessed to be able calling my friend.
