The art you display is simply marvelous. I just discovered you yesterday and I feel that I landed on a treasure already! I bid you peace and happiness in the land of dreams! Anita

What great fun. I wonder if you need to wind it up!

I know I've said this before, but you sure can pick 'em!
The bad news is, I am beginning to want to go to some of these artists and buy stuff. I need to control that impulse if I am to get the new fairy tale journal off the ground!

Wow, wow, WOW! Amazing, I love it. What a talent and a wonderful way to recycle old parts.

Hermes - they dont wind up or work, so sad, wouldn't it be wonderful if they did!

Kate W - i know what u mean, i am so very tempted sometimes. but i am trying to take inspiration from them all instead! so many delicious things. the fairy journal sounds intriguing? ! x

This is the coolest. I adore beetles (I have a gorgeous stained-glass bole-weevil on my studio wall) - and this is a perfectly beautiful one!

Tara - me too, they are fascinating in all their shapes & colours & details.
