Aside from all the fantastic thrift scores and estate sale jaunts...this year I have met some wonderful women who have incredible artistic talent. Whether yielding a needle, brush or glue gun. You all inspire me to be better and make better things. Late last week my oldest was checking the mail (our daily task after school). I hand him the key and he steps out of the car and gets it for me. Then he hands it over while I sit there in anticipation of a pattern, fabric or mere catalog. But this day he kept one back and later pulled it out of his pocket...
It was a tiny package from Chipper Nelly. Beautifully graced with a Queen's Royal stamp. Fee is a sweet mother of three darling boys. Her dear husband Cleggy showers their English cottage generously with animals and her posts are incredibly witty and real. Sometimes a mannequin can be seen in the garden! On top of it all she creates incredible art pieces, blocks and more.
If you are lucky enough to live in England you too can get your hands on one of her creations at her virtual shop Not On the High Street.
These are Fee's pictures of the blocks she created just for me. I cannot begin to tell you how remarkable the detail is. Now, these aren't just your run of the mill blocks with scrapbook paper slapped on them. The finish is impeccable.
We have played with the configuration over and over.
The options are limitless.
Thank you Fee for such an incredible treasure. I am so very touched that you shared your art with me and to have a piece of it in my home. The inspirations are limitless here and for that I am thankful.
