Welcome to that last giveaway post for awhile. I may possibly do one more tiny one next week just because one thing that I was expecting did not arrive in time and it's just so great that I don't want you all to miss out... so be watching.
This giveaway features one of my black lacquer boxes and one of Beth's Market Bags. Beth's Market Bags are just lovely. They are also tough and practical. They can carry a lot of weight and they wipe clean inside and out. Beth also sent along a matching belt and so the winner will have two fun pieces. Notice Beth's cute new label!My mother, grandmother and aunts love black lacquer furniture and all things Asian, which is the inspiration for these little boxes. These boxes don't really have much of an Asian feel to them, but I love how the black lacquer makes such an amazing background for color. I love these boxes and have made them part of my standard repertoire. I hope the winner will love them too. If you like this box and don't happen to win, watch my shops because the black lacquer boxes appear fairly often.
When I started painting Love Boxes, the main idea was to paint a pretty box and then add pretty words. I wanted to meld my interest in the visual arts and my love of reading and of beautiful words together. Finding the perfect quote, or writing the perfect quote to go inside is often part of the challenge of making these little boxes. But, when they are finished, I feel that they make a gift that can really have meaning to the person who receives them. And, no matter how much or how little someone has, they can always use an expression of love. The inside of this box reads..."love brings bewitching grace into the heart... Euripides..."I really appreciate everyone for participating in my little giveaway week. I am so excited! I have always wanted to have my own little shop and I think this one is small enough that I can just manage it. I also really appreciate all of the "word of mouth" advertising that many of you have done to help out. Thanks so much! I am really grateful... so please don't keep my new little shop a secret... please tell everyone you know and visit often.
