I stumbled across this photo I took of a door ornament!  The bird caught my eye.  I'm thinking I can incorporate this image into my art in some way!  Round Top/Warrenton....my what a person can find there.  That's where I saw this great bird ornament.  Might just use him on a Christmas card.  Merry Christmas to all of you!

Memory Box

Wow!  I sure have been away from my blog for a long time!  Busy making Christmas ornaments and Christmas cards using copies of my latest creation!  I painted a Christmas angel and am using her in most of my holiday endeavors.  You will soon see the fruits of my labors...but for now I'm going to show you the burlap covered memory box I made for my dear friend to give as a wedding gift to a very special bride.  As you will see, it is a combination of fabric and layers of all sorts of found objects, trinkets and feathers!  It is a collection of many of the bride's favorite things.     This is the inside of the lid!

 Tucked inside of this tiny leather bag is a note from the bearer of the gift.
 Each bridesmaid and honored guest  who attended the pre-wedding party wrote a special note and tucked it inside this little burlap pouch that was then placed inside the box.
This is a view of the top of the lid.
