A beautiful pressie sent from Nanou in France. I found her through the sublime Resurrection Fern. Nanou doesn't have a blog, but she's clearly an artist, I wish she did so I could follow along with all the beauty she creates. Nanou also included some very cute gift tags and packaged it all so sweetly that I can guess she lives creatively. I wish I spoke French so I could thank Nanou properly. Merci beaucoup isn't enough.
Gracie and I are thinking this particular flower would make a nice little addition to a handbag using this new velvet we got in the Holland Fabric House sale.
And these are fun little ballet slippers we made using Marina's pattern here. They were simple to make and Gracie loved gluing on the little crystals Marina sent her. Gracie has hung up her ballet shoes because she has decided she's strictly a rock chic so these will be a gift for one of her ballet-loving friends - although something tells me Gracie won't really want to part with them :)
PS, camera is still behaving badly!
