Thurs 10th December - Introducing Emily

Any of you who follow Marie at Oak Cottage will know that she's a multi-talented woman:  she cooks, she sews, she writes, she paints, she goes to work and cooks some more - she's always at it!

Every now and then I buy something or other that she's made.  Usually I have some excuse like they're for one of the great-nephews' or nieces birthday or Christmas prezzies.  And what happens?  I selfishly can't part with them so the kids get something else.

In summer I bought some prints thinking I would frame them for The Three.  This is them now.............

They're hanging in my hallway.

And here's my most recent acquisition

Emily is sitting in a corner of the dresser in our living room, every last stitch, every frill, from Marie's own hands.

Isn't she lovely?  Marie was wondering whether to make one just for herself.  I think so, don't you?

You are blessed to have some of Maries artwork in your home. She does a lovely job of it for sure. It think cooking is an art form too and she makes some of most delicious recipes too. What a talented lady!

Just beautiful! I am so tempted to buy some of her lovely creations; wish we were closer. Take care.

Marie said...

My dear Angie. I am so happy that Emily has found a loving home with you. I had nary a doubt that she would! She looks quite comfortable there on your sideboard! I am so happy that you like her and that you like the art prints so much. You have really made my day with your kind and generous words! I am blushing here from the top of my head down to the tips of my toes!! Not sure I deserve all the accolade, but I'll take it in the spirit in which it is given. I love you too girl, I love you too!!! ((((hugs))))
