Look! Look what I got! Thank you, Mary!

See this gorgeous little bag?


See the painted wooden button, 
and the fabric with the natty black cats on a
sky-blue doily background?


 How about the flipside, with three square buttons?
Really sweet, yes?


And the cute ribbon pull on the zip,
with an even cuter striped button 
on the end.
This lovely little thing was sent to me
(over the sea)
 by Mary, of

Thank you so much, Mary!
I was thrilled to get this, 
it's a lovely little bag 
and I'm going to use it as 
a sweet little evening bag this summer.

Mary is a doll maker and, 
as her blog title suggests,
creative in all kinds of fabric art.

She makes lovely BJD's
(Ball jointed doll)


(I've not had the nerve to try one of these.)

Mary's are gorgeous, with long elegant limbs 
and graceful poses.


 with sweet faces and lovely clothes.


 Mary paints, too.
 Lovely, pensive images
with the recurring themes of 
women and wild flowers and birds.


 Pop on over and have a look.
