I just had to share this fabulous work of art with you all, and no I didn't make this one peeps!! It was hand-made and sent to me for my birthday this week, by the lovely
 (I did ask her permission to post it here). To say that I am thrilled to bits is an understatement! The detail is amazingly beautiful and I do hope that Gini will soon be letting us know, on her blog, how she created this masterpiece.
The wistful lady leaning from her tower is "Flora" from a painting by Evelyn de Morgan. I was fortunate enough to see the original painting in an art gallery several years ago, and I
absolutely love it.
Hope you will all pop over to Gini's fabulous blog - her tall stories are amazing!
Enjoy the sunshine - Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxxx

Is this the mystery gift that was feather light, Sylvia. It's absolutely gorgeous, what a talented lady Gina is and she must think an awful lot of you to make it for your Birthday. Something to treasure always. Hope you had a great weekend, the weather behaved beautifully for you didn't it.By the way, I meant to say last time, I love the look of your blog too, who needs backgrounds!!
Have a great week.
