Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 34 - Birthday gift

When you receive such a beautiful gift as this in the mail
your heart not only skips a beat 
but you also know that
the sender is
so in tune with your creative appetite
that they are totally on the same page as you
in every way!

 This gift arrived in the mail
so thoughtfully wrapped and prepared
in little parcels!


You can't imagine the size of this tiny Madonna image
which was framed in layers of lace
pieces, a mother of pearl button and with the tiniest 
matching envelope all of about 2 inches square! 


A da Vinci drawing collaged so beautifully
with vintage laces and even
some eco dyed silk I had gifted
my friend sometime ago! 

This is a most exquisite Bird and Butterfly mobile
and ithas been machine stitched together with cotton -
I have yet to share it hanging on our
antique dresser!

 And there's no guessing why I received these
exquisite antique lace pieces
to be incorporated into
if I have the heart to use them!

Have you ever seen the likes of this piece of Silk
and crocheted cloth - well actually it is
a pillow sham and I think that the
covered pillow in a coloured cover
would have been passed between the two layers of
silk and lace!

It certainly is stunning and most unusual!
I have never seen work like this before
and it is completely hand croched
hand stitched together! 

 A few cabinet cards two of which have
the most exquisite borders in a puce/mushroom shade!

 How special is this angel card?
- the extensive wings and gown - sheer elegance!!

 I think I have been blessed by an angel to receive
all of this amazing beauty 
would love to share it on
Simply Neutrals Tuesday
with Wen on her blog at AppleApricot!

I promise you that you'll be amazed at all the different topics, 
forms of art, architecture, mixed media subjects, nature scenes, etc. over there!
 So pop on over to have a peek!

Many thanks for visiting friends -
it is so kind when you do and especially when you leave
me a comment! It is always so appreciated!
