Got the best package
from Martha Miller's etsy shop
in the mail last week - saved it to open on
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...
such colorful cloth napkins
an artsy rainbow!
Thank you Martha and Lisbeth
(and Martha's mama and Gramma)
