  1. Я восхищаюсь Вашими прекрасными,душевными работами!!!Столько труда.,терпенеия …вдохновления и любви вложено в каждую работу! Удачи и творческих успехов Вам!

  2. This blog is perfect for winter time…as well as this season of flu! Even with a flu shot, I have been doing extra sleeping and laying around, just like these dear “Wee Folks”, as I tried to deal with a mutant form of the flu perhaps. The malaise and lethargy has been the hardest part since I like being busy. But then again, it’s the perfect opportunity to get inspired as one tries to emulate Salley! Thanks again for all your amazing blogs and inspirational ideas.

  3. They are just precious, Salley! I am going to your Etsy shop to see what you have there. It is such fun to see the work of your hands and heart.
