Just wanted to show you this lovely mixed media work that I won in a blog giveaway hosted by the quite delightful Sophie, from her library adventures. Isn't it sweet?
I arrived back from a weekend in Cornwall, to find this package waiting for me. Beautifully wrapped in brown paper and sealed with ribbon and music sheet paper strips...imagine how pleased I was to tear that off to reveal the feminine white tissue and lace ribbon beneath! Quite lovely. I just wish I had a writing bureau to sit at whilst I delicately (!) unveiled the contents - of course, I would also be sporting a rather fetching empire line dress at the same time, to complete this little tableau of delicateness!!
For those who know me, I am so far removed from 'delicate' it's untrue, but I think you can tell where I'm coming from...
Beneath the lovely wrapping, Sophie's work lay waiting to be revealed. A real treasure, she has created this little work of art on a hardback book cover, perfectly complementing my idea of Edwardian heaven - you know, romantically strolling through the grounds of one's impressively large abode, finding a shady nook to sit and contemplate the view, book in hand, resting in a rather ladylike fashion, reading said book.
Oh, the dream...
Suffice to say, Sophie's work lifted my spirits - a little package of beauty. Thank you, Sophie!
Do check out Sophie's Etsy store - take a look at her brooches and mixed media work - you won't be disappointed.
