Art and the lion with the lamb

Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb, and the rose grow without thorn.

I love all things cute and vintage.  This lamb vase is one of the cutest I've seen.  My daughter found it (she loves cute vintage things too), at one of the local thrift shops. I just had to share it with you. 

Well, back to work.  I'm working on a cute stuffed doll for a friend of mine.  I will show you a photo once I am done.

Dance is like the soul expressing joy

In life, as in the dance, grace glides on blistered feet.- Alice Abrams

I still remember the fourth grade school outing.  We were usually treated to the beautiful music of symphonies playing but this time, my class was treated to a ballet as well.  I don't remember all the details but I do remember the beautiful ballerina that graced the stage.  I watched with captivated eyes, every move she made.  She seemed to glide through each move with ease.

I always had a hidden desire to be a ballerina.  Dance to me seems like the soul expressing joy.

My sister found this vintage ballerina figurine at a cute shop called Ivy's Porch.  I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she agreed.

Easter Greetings

The Easter feeling does not end,
It signals a new beginning of nature, spring
And a
Brand new life of friendship.
Happy Easter
