The Trick Will Be to Keep It Out of the Dancer's Clutches




I am one lucky blogger, I tell you what. And I have the most talented and generous friends.

Yesterday afternoon, I got something absolutely beautiful in the mail. Feast your eyes on the fabulous clutch sent to me by the blogger known as The Ardent Thread.

Carol, the brilliant artist who creates these magical pieces has her first trunk show on February 9th in Concorde, California. I'm sad to say I won't be there, but you can find more information at Kimonomomo.com.

Thank you, Carol, for thinking of me. This clutch is beautiful! And I'm honored to be a recipient of your beautiful artistry.

(The photos here don't do the clutch justice. Look here for more pix and order info.)



Isn't it gorgeous?

  7. I love all things Japanese: the textiles and clutch are beautiful. I hope you enjoy this link. The artist is Hiroshige, and his prints are commonly used in textiles.

  8. Not much to add. It's gorgeous. It reminds me of a book I own called Omiyage of gorgeous little Japanese gifts to make. I've also been ogling a book about Japanese quilt squares. Love those textiles.

  12. I'm glad the clutch arrived safely. It seemed like you could use something pretty right about now.

    Yep, we'll be in Concord, CA. Come on over, the weather is beautiful. The fabrics are, too. We'll be serving sake' and tea while I get to talk about my favorite subject for a few hours. It'll be grand.
