It is when you bless someone else that you get many more blessings in return. I realized this again very recently...
A dear friend and my art mentor just recently had surgery. I decided to send her a small boutique of flowers. She lives a couple hours away and this was just a small gesture to say I am thinking of you and to feel better real soon. As with any gesture of kindness you feel good and though I would have loved to visit her personally, sending flowers was what I could do at the time.
It wasn't very long before she sent me one of the coolest thank you cards....
A vegetable fabric postcard!!!
She found them at a farmer's market!!
Beautiful deep shades of purple and metallic thread really set it off!
She wrote on the back with a thin pen!
That was awesome, but then something else happened...
I received another fabric postcard from her!
Lovely batik and commercial fabrics!
I just love how the artist used the pattern of the batik for such texture on the veggie!
I will cherish this beautiful mail art for many years to come!
I actually want to find a way to hang them in my kitchen!
I thought, that's pretty cool! 2 fabric postcards!! And then she sent me another one!!!
This was created with vintage linen! I am enjoying the bright oranges with the subtle background.
Fun patterns on the fabric!
Embroidery work!!! Very nice!!!
Each came wrapped in a plastic sleeve, protected and with the stamps on the plastic. Such a cool way to send mail!
Do you see what I mean? She should be getting the mail, the get-well-soon cards and instead she is sending kindness and smiles back my way!
Thank you L.R. for your kindness and continual guidance in my artistic endeavors!
thankful for beauty from a friend on this artist holiday,
