This is the Fortitude. She’ll be auctioned (beginning Wednesday the 3rd) in the benefit organized by Lisa, Stephanie, and Gerrie for the Kim family. There’s lot’s of amazing stuff; you can see a preview here.
Her sails are sheer swiss dot salvaged from an edwardian lawn dress and some other vintage bits including pieces of a beautiful aqua, rose and green paisley dress my mother made for herself in the sixties, it’s one of my all time most favorite fabrics.
Happy New Year !
you are a nice person.
Gorgeous!! Happy New Year to you!
[…] I’ve been contemplating the beauty of this glorious ship. […]
absolutely love your work! Hope the auction is a huge success.
That is wonderous.
There are tons of amazing things listed on the auction, but I have to admit that “The Fortitude” is my absolute favorite. It’s like all my favorite fairy tales, a smooth ocean and a big dash of whimsy all rolled together. Truly magical!
Hi, have just come over from the auction and have got to tell you that I am enchanted by your work. Love it all! I’ve been experimenting with papier mache ( birds, dolls) for a while now and am awe struck by your ships.
It’s dreamy, just beautiful…so beautiful. she is so blue and heavenly . whoever gets her is lucky. xoxoxo happy new year
This is quite lovely. When do you plan to make more?
You are absolutely brillant – it’s beautiful, I love it! And it’s so wonderful that it’s for the Kims’ benefit. Their little Apothecary is just blocks from my house, it breaks my heart whenever I see it. Thank you for doing this.
Its arduous to find educated folks on this topic, but you sound like you realize what youre speaking about! Thanks
I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
