My Incredibly Talented Friend

My girlfriends gave me a lovely early birthday luncheon and this was one of the gifts that I received. It is entirely handmade from paper and a paper mache book box.
Each delicate flower is made by hand by the artiste, and the box itself is painted white. You would not believe how lovely this is in person.



See the beautiful crystal bead closure.






The inside is lined with criss-crossed ribbon and pearls. Thank you, Betty.

Very pretty. I also love the painting on your sidebar with the sparrow on the old door knob. Love that scripture, yet we all worry. Thanks for stopping by to see my garden. Your husband had an incident with pesticide. Mine had an incident with fertilizer. Yellow burn spots in the lawn!
