Just like Christmas morning......

I was lucky enough to win four prizes at One World One Heart this year and the first one arrived in the mail yesterday.  Ya'll might have caught on by now that I love flowers, especially roses- and I won this gorgeous mixed media ATC called, "Lady Rose" how perfect is that?  It has layer upon layer of all the things that make a garden a beutiful place to be, roses (of course) butterflies, bees, garden jewelry and of course, a queen to reside over her miniature kingdom!
I knew it would be wonderful, but the picture just doesn't do it justice- I LOVE it!  She is now holding court in the window over my desk until my studio is ready for a more permenant placement.
Stop by and check out Laura's other beauties at Artfully Musing- she has an incredible eye for layers of color, texture and detail with just a touch of sparkle- absolutely beautiful work!
I'll be back later to post my Inspiration Avenue entry- I know, I can't believe I'm early either ;)

Congratulations. I know this is the perfect home for her. You are so lucky. I'm still having trouble typing, but at least I'm typing with two hands today, at least for awhile.

Look for Rose 'Marchessa Boccella'. She's fragrant, remontant, pink, gorgeous.

Rose climbing 'Dortmund' is TOUGH.

I understand about your art being better than the pic. Gardens are, many times, the same.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
