My dear friend Helena and I did a trade awhile back. One of the items I gave her was a mandrake drawing postcard. I just absolutely love what she did with it. She makes the most wonderful perfumed oils and some very pretty jewelry (she sent gold plated scottie terrier earrings but I never had a chance with them, Nat snatched them pretty quick). She just recently began a new blog called About a Bun, a story of a rabbit who lives with two cats in a cosy burrow. She is learning to reconnet with her animal nature and dig her way into a happier, healthier and more natural lifestyle.
She has a couple of tutorials there like how to make henna and how to wet felt balls. She is starting to create adorable little felted goods too. Here are a few of her lovely things (you can click on her photos to see other pictures on her flickr):
(of course, when Nat saw these she quickly said 'I want those, I want those!' like I knew she would).
Thank you Helena, for your friendship, your sweetness and being the best Country Story neighbor ever ;) ♥
