Picture Perfect~ Handmade Mermaid.

This weeks Picture Perfect is ~ Handmade.

I did not make the beautiful lead light glass mermaid. She was given to me by a friend who made her especially for me as a surprise present for a significant Birthday.

How delighted I was to receive her and I know much patience and precision work went into making this one off, Beautiful, Handmade, Creative and Artist Treasure for me.

Thank You to Pat the Lady Friend who made her.

 Now I present

"My Mermaid"

The Picture Perfect Tour Starts Here.

  4. That is beautiful, Milli. It's wonderful to have such lovely friends, eh? It appears that your mermaid is hanging in a window, yes? The wood blinds are just down, yes? I love the color of the blinds, too. I also have wood blinds throughout my home; oh, dusting is so tedious.

  23. Sheila it was such a pleasure to read through some of your blogs. You certainly know how to write a compelling post. Beautifully crafted and with the depth of your character shining through. I will continue with my reading when time permits.
    Thank you for inviting me and I too would write more on yahoo if and when it becomes more user friendly.
