Had to share my excitement

It's Jean here and I know I should post art....
but this acquisition made me giddy! 

I am fortunate enough to be acquainted with a world class fiber artist, felter, quilter, and mixed media Artist - Rita Blocksom.   Rita actually invented specific felting needles used by the felting industry and taught fiber arts as well as mixed media for many years. 


Rita has been downsizing and clearing out many of her supplies of fabulous goods.  I got to go shopping!



Among the treasures are vintage, one of a kind hankies.   Some silk, some scalloped edges, all colors, some with tatting, various flowers, and ALL gorgeous!  There are Dogwood, Tulips, Roses and more.   Colors are soft and bold.  




They will all be available for purchase this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
