So, sew beautiful Dore!!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Dore,
It was such a JOY to see you had come over for a visit.. Your words are like music to my heart.
Thank you so much for your encouragement.. I am so happy you enjoyed viewing her and the backdrop. I painted that for her yesterday.. I am going to make her a few accessories before I list her. Hope to have her on Ebay this evening if you care to check back.

I just love your paper moussies, they make me smile.

Now that I am finished with the kitchen I can get back into my work here in the studio.

Bless you my friend,

You are a creator, I'm surprised your enchanting handiwork is not in that beautiful book. Your stuff looks just as pretty as any of the photos in there.


La Brocanteuse said...

Love your Christmas stockings, and just new they would be special when created by you!
I imagine them filled with tiny little " promiss" notes, maybe a little wish or two..

Tricia Rose Rough Linen said...

Love the matelassé Doré~

Christel said...

Dear Dore, I went back as far as your August 12th post..that's how many I have missed! Shame on me, I have to go visit Anita's been that long since I visited her as well. The large brocante piece was just beautiful, and truly makes a statement! The stockings add just the right amount of whimsy, while still lending that sigh of quiet and calm ever so present in everything you create. A huge congratulations on having a shoot in your beautiful home! None better as the perfect backdrop for a great pictorial read! Thank you for your visit Dore, your work is so inspiring, although we are quite different artists, we are kindred souls. Blessings, Christel said...

Such beautiful stockings! You're making me wish for Christmas! I always enjoy your posts. You are such an inspiration.

BellaRustica said...

Well done, once again. I need your help with gray paint colors....and a sign for my mailbox - LETTERE.

Ci parliamo Sabato. Baci, Kim

Ma chère amie!

How nice to see you my friend, SO NICE! Everyone is super busy these days but I am so glad to hear that you have work and that it is work you LOVE! I am trying to get used to being at home and creating, but now I have to learn many other things about MARKETING. It has been a joy to create, so I have to hang on to that....but of course, all I have to do is look around me and appreciate your influence in my home décor and it is so soothing. Enjoy your world my dear, AND SPARKLE! Anita

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Dore,
What beautiful words you have left for me.. I am touched that my little lamb gently touched a place in your heart of memories. Thank you so much for your kind words. They are appreciated more than you know.
I sent you an email as requested. You are a treasure.

Bless you my friend,

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Ok.. Now I am so excited I can't stand it.. I love surprises and you are so wonderful to send me, for what I am sure is something from the heart.. No gift is ever small.. I cant' wait.. You are so very thoughtful and have such a giving heart. Thank you!

Vintage Home said...

such sweet reminders of the Joy of the coming that time is in my head and stirring up ideas!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

You beautiful soul you!
The postman brought your gift today. I am beyond words right now.
It is a kind and very thoughtful heart you have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The felting needles will be FLYING.. Bless you Dore.
Sending you an email.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Sweet friend!

I am working on a gray/white paper dress, inspired by NINA and YOU....and I cannot help but be thinking of you as I make it. It is beautiful. Then I come for a break, and I see you came....thank you. It means a lot to me to see your visit. AND I LOVE all of the things that you have sold here in your beautiful Etsy shop. I finally sold my GREIGE ballet wand and it is going to England! It was my absolute favorite.


Burlap Luxe said...

Thank you sweet Anita,
Votre réussite est la beauté que vous placez vos mains à l'ensemble de vos beaux-arts.
Je rêve d'un jour où moi aussi je peux créer du papier comme vous le faites. Donner à chaque larme la beauté qu'elle mérite.


Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dearest Dore,
What a joy to see your heartfelt words.. Thank you so much for your comment on Moonbeam.. It has been years since I have attempted to paint a horse, and the first with watercolors..
How very exciting to have a grandfather that is the art producer of Paramount, and he sounds like a loving soul.

Again, you are such a dear.. I absolutely LOVE this wool. I am working on something already, and it is a true joy to work with.
Merci cher ami,

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Dore,
Your words have left me speachless.
Bless you dear friend, and tell Hannah I am honored and thank you.
People drift in and out of our lives.. I am so blessed you have drifted into mine.
