Inspiration Wednesday

I know, I know. It's Thursday. But I had these two sites lined up to post yesterday and I just couldn't get them up.

I was really inspired by My Little Mochi's post on Tuesday providing a link to Karsten Kastanje and her forrest creature creations. My mom makes little faeries from wooden beads and silk flower petals and I have to send her that link. So when I happened across Brown Betty I thought I just had to keep the address for future reference. It is a beautiful site with plenty of wonderful little creations. You MUST check out the tea cozies. The mole and the sheep are my favs.

Madam Nya has an interesting site devoted to these wonderful embroidered buttons. It is well worth the time to visit and check out the minature works of art. Go to the pendants page and scroll down to the flower pendants. So lovely. I wish the pictures were better.

Hi Ria,

Thanks so much for stopping by my site and sharing the link for Brown Betty! Her stuff is so amazing!! And Madam Nya's buttons are so cool too. I was just thinking about these kind of buttons after seeing some in one of my Japanese craft magazines. Thanks again! :o)
