Special Thanks to You Alicia Caudle!

A few weeks ago, the amazing Alicia Caudle from Altered Bits' Altered Blog had a "give a way" and I was one of the incredibly lucky winners! Here are the beautiful items she sent - which included 3 large patterned pieces of material, 4 buttons, 2 vintage photographs from the 1800s, her infamous poison bottle (yes empty of course!) a beautiful tiny brass frame and my very favorite- a large frozen charlotte!
Thank you so much Alicia for this generous and creative collection of goodies!
Alicia is also one of the many artists sponsoring the One World One Heart 2011 extravaganza so check out her site here for a chance to win a super drawing - with the added gift of meeting people from all over the world!!
And to all who have been so supportive to me during this most challenging year,
Wishing you a very Happy Valentine's Day!!
Be who you want to be
Live how you love to see yourself
Become what you imagine and dream of!

Thanks Jill for your wishes. I wish you a happy day too!! You are such an inspiration to me and your art is so special. You have been through so much and let me send you a little verse from “rime of the ancient sailor” who through his lonely struggles with the seas found peace, the moon and in the end became a wise man. Another little verse on one of your favorite things – the Moon.

Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide wide sea!
And never a saint took pity on
My soul in agony.

The moving moon went up the sky,
And no where did abide:
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside –

You can send us more !! Steen
