  1. Lovely! I love color, and these are such delightful pieces :)

  2. Hi Sarah!!!

    I saw these pieces "in the flesh" and they are SOOOO much more amazing in person. You can just stand for hours looking at each one, finding all the little pictures within the big image. Also, some of the pieces had crazy colored cotton. Like cotton balls gone mad. It was really hard to keep my hands off of these.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you!
