I'm short of exclamation marks when it comes to you, Pippa! Look what arrived in the mail today! She sent me this beautiful gift across the globe! Pippa has, as far as I'm concerned, revived and reinvented the wonderful art of macrame. In addition, she has added large luxurious tassels to her repertoire, as well as dreamcatchers, wall hangings and beads, all made from beautiful twine, handdyed by her. She dipdyes the twine, which creates this gorgeous gradient effect which is her signature, an effect that gives her work a very modern twist. I'm so thrilled to see her work being featured in magazines and her OuchFlower business taking off. The sky's the limit, Pippa!
Back to the beauties that arrived in the mail from down under! One black, one chartreuse, a color I didn't even know about before I was introduced to it by Pippa (my mother tongue is norwegian:-) I didn't realize how big they are before seeing them in "person". The black one has a very fancy copper headband:-) I arranged a small photoshoot against a teak cabinet door in my kitchen, I know we share a passion for teak! Aren't they gorgeous? Thank you so much, sweet, Pippa!
Pippa is not only a great maker of beautiful crafts, she also teaches and is the best matchmaker ever. You blogging friends out there know what I mean! She's a really sweet person whose words are so warming, both in her comments and in her "blog dedication" project.
I know most of my "regulars" already know Pippa, but if there's anyone out there who don't, be sure to check out her blog where she also has a shop, as well as her Etsy shop. You're in for a treat!
