Some Gifts - my friends received

I wanted to share a few gifts that my friends received for their double trouble birthday celebration!

Miss Holly "Holly Loves Art" blog, outdid herself yet again. I ordered this adorable apron from her. I emailed everything that runs in the woman's head and let me tell you it was the longest list but Holly managed to put it in on the apron! Holly has these pretty necklaces in the Somerset Holiday Magazine, you have to go buy it and see!

Cheryl from Nouveaux Portmanteau blog made for Marlene this adorable Geisha house! Look it is a frozen Charlotte and she used to black cotton balls for the hair! haha Look at all the details. She also made her first bracelet that was also very cute.

Sandi (no blog) made this adorable Wizard of Oz triangle shaped change purse. The outside had the Scarecrow Lion and Tin Man and inside Dorothy with Toto with the Yellow Brick Road Behind it. This picture does not do it justice at all. There are these lines slit but the image is perfect like it is flat fabric. Sandi felts, paints, knits and sews and ok what does she "not" do? We are working on getting her set up with a blog and or etsy.

This bead basket with Bees my friend Beverly found for Marlene at a vintage shop was all beat up when she found it. When I saw it as Marlene's gift I screamed! What?? Beverly is amazing she re-beaded most of the flowers and fixed the bees and even made eyes! Mizz Bee Marlene loved it!
