Can you imagine the beauty that must surround you daily,

Molly Coddle's original photographic art transformed into

Molly was so sweet to offer one of her tiles for a giveaway...

THIS ONE:

And I just can't thank her enough!

Molly's shop has more to offer than I could ever show you here,
but suffice to say -- if you want to get a jump on your holiday shopping...

One fabulous gift idea are her many gorgeous sets of


Love these!

I'm so thrilled to have been able to introduce you to Molly and her art.
I've carried her creations in my store for years and I can tell you, 
they are second to none.


Thank you to all who entered and as always,
never fear -- if you didn't win this giveaway,
there are always more tries just around the corner!  
:)

Before I leave you, I wanted to give you a little
sneaky peek at a few more new things we've had in stock now for some time,
just haven't gotten them up on the website yet for online sales....
More fabulousness crafted from true vintage/salvaged
European canvas (from all sorts of past lives)
and sewn into these chic bags and pillows!





Until next time, I will be found in the shop office continuing to
press on shipping out ALL those pre-orders for the 
English re-print of Jeanne d'Arc Living's "Jul" Christmas book...

6 cases down, many more to go!  :)

You are loved,

debbie told me that you left a message on the wild raspberry blog.
i have pretty much left that blog to her and now i have my own photo blog.

the other blog was too difficult for me right now~ too emotional.
i am doing better with pictures.

anyway~
thank you for the kind comment.

i'm so thankful i found you a year or so ago. i need to go back and watch the video that you linked me too back then.

it was so inspiring.

thank you for your kind heart and tender thoughts for my sister.

it has been one tough year.

big hugs to you~

I am the copyright owner of the image on the MollyCoddle tile she gave away. Molly was informed by the Copyright Agents of Amazon and Yahoo of my ownership and her copyright infringement. Result? She stopped selling them on those two venues. I know you moderate your comments so I don't really expect to see my comment on your blog. I suppose, I'll know why. If in doubt about the image go to my website or my Etsy shop and look. http://subway-sign.com

Hi Chirs,

Thanks so much for your input regarding the tile design issue. It is a hard thing, I suppose, when in the art/crafting biz to always be up on what is and is not eligible for reproduction and I know that Molly must just feel awful about having somehow managed to choose a public sign that was covered under your trademarks/copyrights. At any rate, I'm glad you both seem to have reached a good conclusion to the situation and all is well now.

For those out there who love to craft things, navigating the waters of what is and is not "public use" can be a bit tricky and for the most part, I know there is never any ill-will intended. Thanks so much for being able to work things about to a good end. :)

Best Regards,
Ruth
