I won!!!...

Marie Skrotzki. What a lovely woman! I know I am sounding repetitive but first of all, there are some beautiful bloggers out there who create beautiful things, and second, so many are so generous and gracious, with their creations, kindness and their knowledge. I found Marie's blog, Lost Bird Studio, just this year and have become an avid follower. She has such a beautiful style, very soft and yet very complex. Though her creations have a lot of detail, they always seems to look "calm" to me.

Look at this beautiful packaging. My gift was wrapped in gorgeous cream on cream material and tied with taupe seam binding. And it was sent from Germany!

Here is my gorgeous pillow and card. Do you see what I mean? There is so much work there and everything is placed just right! The design is worked layer upon layer. See the calligraphy over the egg? Can you believe the real feathers at the bottom? I love the repetition of the crowns and eggs. The tag is perfect! A postcard with a crown (and the bird that laid the egg, I imagine).

Here is a little closer peek. Please tell me, my friends, what kind of feathers are those? I want to say guinea hen but I think I just made that up! They are the perfect touch!
Thank you so much, Marie, for this wonderful gift.  I love your blog and I love what you create. I am so glad I found you and encourage people to visit you. I know, they, too, will be delighted to meet you and see more of your incredible work.
