"One cannot consent to
creep when one feels
the impulse to soar."
Helen Keller
Although creep would best describe
my latest creation,
I'm soaring now that she's completed.
I chose a black pillow for the base of this fabric collage of vintage doilies, vintage trim and this vintage print of a girl in a fabulously embellished butterfly dress. Also added were a few sequins and pink glass beads from the last generation of crafters in the family.

I think it would provide a nice pop of color for any shabby chic setting. Whether on a bed, sofa, or chair she would remind those passing by to release their gypsy soul to new possibilities.

She'll be waiting here...
