"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."
Sir Winston Churchill
I've been out antique hunting this weekend and came across something I'd like to gift my readers with. There's a little peek above. To see more, visit my blog at Artpub. Make sure you visit the other artist's blogs while you're there. Several are offering great tutorials and other freebies.
The thing I love about what Mija sent is that each object in the box is perfect for me. Even though we've only met in person once, Mija knows exactly what I like! She's very intuitive and you can see that sensitivity in her artwork. (Make sure you check it out.) Or, maybe she's just really generous and really smart. I think she's all of the above!
vintage religious medals...
an antique key...
old books, filigree metal thingies and...how does she know I collect vintage butter knives?!
Oh, and look at this awesome, old, serving spoon my friend Colleen gave me. It's a Christmas pattern...maybe from Germany?
And, from my sweet friend Katie Kendrick, this gorgeous, vintage, silk kimono! I've been overly blessed with material gifts this year but the best part is the care, love and support behind the gifting. For that, I am very thankful!
