When Art Comes In the Mail
It's magical! My wonderful friend, Sheila Carpenter, the most creative folk artist in the world, has created a wonderful assemblage. This was a challenge for both of us....using old cigarette paper covers, a find at Brimfield. I sent her a little box using the cigarette paper covers and yesterday I received this from her....isn't it wonderful? What fun! I just love it. Thanks, Sheila!
It now hangs on my wall in my office. I just love the way you made her clothes out of the papers. A-dorable!
Here is a side view showing the raggedy silk ribbon wrapping around the well-designed cigar box with a great antique button at the top.
I'm so lucky to have met Sheila. What fun to swap art. It's a blast!!!
