From me to you (a give away)

Before the year is over I wanted to take a moment and tell my wonderful new friends how much I appreciate your comments and how much I enjoy visiting your Blogs. They are all beautiful and unique in their own way.

It took me a long time to decide to join the world of blogging, I am so glad I overcame my doubts! Blogging really is the only way to make friends from all over the world. Beautiful people with beautiful ideas that, had it not been for these posts, I would have never had the fortune of meeting. And so, as a token of friendship I have made this humble gift:

I used a small wine bottle as a canvas for my art

The bottle has been painted and embellished with yarn, sequins and other trims

The fairy's wings are made of four different layers, paper, tulle and a wire armature covered with a gorgeous lace in a beautiful shade of copper

The fairy's crown is made of a thin lace band adorned with sequins and small beads

Silk leaves and tiny pebbles have been glued to the back of the bottle.

By the way, in case you were wondering, the bottle is empty. Sorry, I could not help myself! :0)

For your chance to win you must be a "follower" and just a leave a comment on this post. A winner will be chosen on Monday, December 21st. (will send to any country)

Again, thanks for making my days so much more interesting and brighter. Wishing you all a Magical and Merry Christmas.
