Goodies in the Mail - Mother's Day Gift from Etsy Shop, Brainstorm Studio


So pretty...

Got the best package from Martha Miller's etsy shop
 Brainstorm Studio in the mail last week - saved it to open on 
Mother's Day and it really was a wonderful little gift  to give myself. 


Martha Miller and her daughter Lisbeth work together in their Maine studio.

I found them through Martha's blog (Martha Miller Art)
and I've loved her Etsy shop for quite some time...
This little art quilt (and the napkins below) had me at hello. 
Four generations of women  contributed to this piece.
The quilt was patched together from fabric belonging to 
Martha's grandmother, her mother, herself and her daughter Lisbeth


So very appropriate for mother's day.

In fact, we ate dinner with it glowing beneath candlelight as our centerpiece
on Mother's day with three generations of women, my mom, my two daughters, and myself
as we toasted my grandmother and great grandmothers. 


Admiring my beautiful new kitchen table centerpiece
my mother's day coffee was quite happy to be sitting there.
(in my favorite mug - painted by "E"
made by my sweet hubby and brought to me in bed
by two smiling and snuggly little girls -- the best way to wake up)

I did not take a photo at dinner -- I spent time with my family instead of behind the camera.



You missed out on the quilt but you can still get some of her napkins!

Check out mine above... (Garden Party Mandala Napkins)
such colorful cloth napkins an artsy rainbow!  
Thank you Martha and Lisbeth (and Martha's mama and Gramma)
