TUSSIE MUSSIE SWAP
A recent exchange
hosted by Melanie Hall
in my Marie Antoinette Mail Art group
has to be one of my favorites
A Tussie Mussie
There were no restrictions, really
so no one felt 'boxed in'
leaving plenty of room for the creative muse to take over
My partner was Terri Gordon
her work is nothing less than exquisite
no matter what she creates
But this time it was for MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
It is luscious
with an antique feel to it
Terri used the most beautiful laces
ribbons, and vintage trims
I have ever seen
As soon as I opened it
I knew exactly where it would hang
and up it went.
Now I pass it many times a day
and just smile.
It's wonderful to be surrounded by
so many beautiful items
made by such talented hands and hearts.
That is the wonderful collection
of artisans on this very special art group.
Thank you, Terri
This is what I created for Terri
layers of text, dyed gauze, laces, ribbons
embellished with paper roses
and blinged out flowers
a very fru-fru pink bird
sitting in a golden nest
top it off.
Truly one of the best swaps on our group.
Although I think I say that every time........
because it's always true.
