Linking up with A to Z Challenge


  1. She does some very beautiful work!

    Congratulations on finishing the Challenge!

  2. Functional art is one of my favorite things. The quilts are too pretty to use, but these objects will be hands-on loved every day. I have immensely enjoyed your A2Z Frederique! Thank you for the effort you put into it.

  3. I really like this kind of philosphy. It's a bit the same that was at the core of Art Deco.

    Congratulation on finishing the challenge. I really enjoyed yours. So different from any I've seen in the past.

God bless.

    An A-Z of Faerie: Grogoch

  31. Sometimes, I think about how much care and creativity people used to put into everyday items...crafting a bowl of clay or wood, carving utensils, making a pencil case...we have lost much when we can just drive to the store and purchase these items...

  32. How Fun! I love that pencil case.

  33. I love the idea of making every day things beautiful. Weekends In Maine
