Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!


I hope everyone is having a delightful day.

I thought that I would show you a piece that I made a while back called "The Little Black Box". After you have found the love of your life and tossed out your little black book here is the place to keep all of those cherished love letters and momentos... the little black box.

The hand-cast, hand-painted composition heart is trimmed in pale blue chenille, green chenille and a spray of vintage turquoise flower pips, lined in pink hand dyed silk. The heart rests on flocked vintage grass paper. Around the base and under the heart are vintage feathers, a hand made bird’s nest with eggs in it, a cluster of vintage berries, a vintage rose stem with buds, erica moss and cotton batting mushrooms. Inside the heart is a 1920’s crepe paper napkin. A vintage black velvet ribbon runs under the oval of grass and down to the bottom edge of each end of the box.

The inside is padded and lined with hand dyed silk edged at the top with fine antique trim.
