This tiny Delight…an as of yet un-named butterfly garden box, will premier at the Keystone Summit on December 7th at my husbands industrial park. I will be one of a handful of artists displaying my work for sale and I am super excited. I am busy doing what I love best…tatting and designing. I take my lace-making to a new level by adding teeny beaded flowers and tatted leaves to the top of a tiny little metal box. The background is a fabric with a black and white floral base. The tiny flowers and leaves are tatted as well as the lilac PIXIE butterfly that hovers over them. The butterfly is slightly stiffened to be permanently 3-D. The cording around the garden is handmade in complimentary colored floss. The interior is lined with lavender felt. The entire metal box is 1 1/2″ in diameter. I feel so happy when I create things that are so delightful. Keeps me out of trouble and keeps a spring in my step.
later…I think I will call this “Lavender Love” .
