Lady of Shalott Beaded Purse


Thanks to Jen Parrish for directing me to this gorgeous beaded purse / bag made by Winebrenner Gallery

The strap reads
"When the moon was overhead, came two
young lovers lately wed: ‘I am half sick of shadows’,
said The Lady of Shalott"

Lovely!

Hello Grace! I love what you have done with the art! I see that you are in Ohio; I have a great blogger pal who lives in Ohio as well. There is so much beautiful art out there and the beaded purse is exquisite. I will be posting more of pre-raph art on my future posts; it is so rich in texture and color and captures the mood I love. I emailed you to say that I noticed that you had already gone on to my older posts. I was having trouble accessing my recent post but it is fixed now. I have more of the pre-raph art on the newer blogs that you might enjoy. Thanks again for such a nice comment, have a great evening! Anita

Ro, isn't it great? I can't imagine the work that went into that...

Anita, I love finding new beautiful arts and crafts out there that reflect the romantic medieval sensibilities that the Pre-Raphaelites so embodied! I'd love to ask you a million questions about your home remodel. My husband and I are searching for basically your exact home in our area, and it's just so inspiring to see how you turned it into exactly what I'd dream of. For one thing, where the heck do you get diamond pane windows?? I think I've searched all over the net, with no luck. Argh!

I look forward to future blogs from you. You truly seem like a kindred spirit. :)
