Wanted to share something way coolio! Back in November I had an art show (as y'all know from my art blog) While I was there that day we wandered around to some of the other galleries there. My good friend Vickie Valdez and I found a gallery that was featuring her lovely bottles. I had purchased one of hers without knowing she was the artist!!!LOL She makes these cool bottle vases and then makes necklaces and hangs them around the bottle. I chose this one. You can see why.
yes; it's a wee purse and it opens!
(I bought it immediately at that)
When it's Ms. Stella's time to move on to her next journey;
some of her furs will tuck safely inside here.
While we were at that gallery they were having a silent auction
Vickie bid first on this item; then I bid. We joked with each other about it but knew since the auction didn't officially close for awhile we were sure we'd be outbid. And quite honestly, with her being a Vet and all I figured she'd go back discreetly without me & up her bid for it. She never did. The auction closed and we heard nothing.
Then last weekend when my week coudln't have gotten any worse; I got a call from the gallery; I had won the item and sadly they had misplaced my information and only found it that day. Four months later. They mailed it to me and here it is.
A Steampunk Polymer clay cat pin. The whiskers are long and soft; not hard wire. Since I'm a total steampunk chick this makes me squee big time! Check out the wee flywheel on his nose!!
