Hi Karena, such beauty and grace in your words when visited by you thank you for sharing in my worn LOVE !
It's so amazing how you find the time to seek out the beauty you inspire us with and of course I would love to be included in this beautiful giveaway....

Thank you for the added beauty you add to our world.

Karena, the empress eyes logo that is used so reminds me of the art my daughter would create in 3rd grade calling it by what it is as to being OUTSIDERS art when an artist doesn't recognize that he/she is an artist.
Love the story of his background in exposing him to the arts.

As for Janes etsy it's a beautiful bouquet of textile colour and all thought I design around a particular style of euro chic and a bit French brocante there are two beautiful pillows that would suit my style with an elegant touch and that is of the Gray and Cream Velvet.

There are a couple of others I would be honored to dress my rooms with there beauty, you can see pictured the quality in the design construction and craftsmen ship of the sewing and design pattern of each piece, truly works of art.

Thank you for such a beautiful sharing.

I visited Jane's Etsy Shop. Delighted to learn some of the background about the author and the book. The I Married Adventure pillow would look delightful on the end of my sofa, where it would be almost side by side with my copy of the book on the end table. Being a bird person, my other favorite would have to be the Otomi Embroidered Pinky Pink.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I love the I Married... pillow the best. but the Louis pillow, like all the others, caught my eye!

Hi Karena,

Great blog post so rich with many of my favorite things especially history. Love the pillow as many of us do. Pillows really bring a room together this pillow would be a welcome addition in my design enviornment. After all haven't we all married an adventure of our own?

My dear... what a rich and informative post! I reread it twice in an attempt to absorb all of the history and inspiration within! I do think I need to take Jane's advice and get up earlier to read quality blogs like yours! So happy to have found your blog!
