"You know I always thought unicorns were fabulous creatures too, although I never saw one alive before." "Well now that we have met," said the unicorn, "If you believe in me, I'll believe in you." --lewis carrol
The party favors are being gathered ...
The tables being set.
Bowls being filled with treats,
and candles being lit.
The names in the teacup ... overflow.
The excitement is mounting.
The hour approaches ...
Little feet scamper about in a flurry ...
Are gingersnaps ready?
Something special for everyone?
And tea to be served?
We are ready?
A wee someone says, yes.
Tonight is the night.
All eyes will watch to see if they spy ...
The magic moment when the name appears.
From the teacup to the paper inside ...
Where nothing was, but then is ...
One tiny glass bottle with a paper inside.
And when that top is uncorked ...
a name will whisper out.
All the tiny bears sit in silence ...
Will it be them?
Only one will hear the name.
Will it be their ear that hears?
The name of a human
... their forever person.
Will they be someones Valentine?
Will yours be the name whispered?
To One Tiny Bear?
..:: a wee 2-3/4 inch five point jointed mohair bear ::..
-- designed & made for you with love ... by me .:: zUzU ::.
Made of vintage mohair & wool, w/matted blown glass eyes, and a frumpy blue silk ribbon he adores ... Measuring less than 3-inches at his tallest, stuffed w/cottonwool, excelsior, and big wishes. The winners name will be placed inside next to his heart ... with the 'inside story' of his beginnings sealed within (--a copy to read included) signed/dated/marked ... & tagged with my Heartstrings studio logo.
It has long been spoken of among the bears ...
That at the very same moment a tiny bear
is matched with a Valentine, all the candles
burning around the world will flicker.
And something will be whispered
into their Valentine's ear only for them to hear.
The phenomenon that has the potential to quickly become known as the event of the season, has gotten off to a roaring start this year. Having more than doubled in size from last year, OneWorld-OneHeart has artists all over the world visiting each other to say hello. With more joining in every hour, seriously I'm having trouble keeping track.
The brain child of Lisa Oceandreamer [Heart of the Nest] was a little idea that caught on big. What if a few bloggers each gave away a little gift, just to entice and thank each other for visiting? Word was sent out by invitation and a master list was created of participants. And it grew and it grew. Like the Grinches heart, it got too big to be contained. Watching this idea bouncing about from blog to blog one can't help smiling at what has happened. A huge circle of new acquaintances are being made.
With so many incredible artists and their blogs out there to visit, one can easily become overwhelmed by gorgeous ... I personally haven't made it through the list of blogs to visit yet. Not even close! But I have already noted some incredible work out there. So I thought I would begin to share with you, ones I can not imagine having missed.
I'll start half way around the world from where I sit typing.
One of the most delightful blogs (and even more so is the blogs owner) is a little studio called, Sepia Art. Run by Delila Jemaiel, Sepia-Art Studio is a beautiful hidden gem of a nest in Finland. This blog features the works of an artist with a wonderfully unique vision. When you visit, you are immediately swept into her realm of faerytales and soft music, transparent colors and sheer magic. Her writing is precious and has the eloquence of a great piece of art.
Delila is as charming as the beautiful pieces of paper art she creates. Visit her in her tiny studio where she dreams of the woods and be taken into another time, somewhere between now and then. Where tea is an art and you can see the past peeking through the windows.
You have discovered one of the magical pieces of the
. . . :: OneWorld-OneHeart event giveaway :: . . .
Oh dear ::^..^::
The faeries are running so behind with the stitching ...
Tiny little pieces, still undone. The sun setting far too soon.
But inside the studio awaits a surprise ... soon to be complete.
To be unveiled to all of you arriving at the doorstep to see.
Please, while you wait have some tea.
Cookie? Take two. I insist. The tiny star shaped ones were made just for you. They are wishes ... for luck. Sprinkled with real stardust & blessed by the moon.
The smallest of the enchanted ones are working on something special ::for YOU:: and would be so disapointed should you not return to peek ... Perhaps with one more sleep? Or two?
.::I HOPE YOU WILL RETURN TO SEE THE MAGIC::.
This is part of the OneWorld-OneHeart event giveaway ...
