Oh yes, did I forget to mention that today I got an email from Somerset Life asking me if they could do a piece on my bottles? Well, they did! Am I flattered that somehow they stumbled onto my blog? You bet. Am I grateful for the wonderful world of blogging and all the people I meet? Absolutley. XXOOXXO!

This one was a gift from her friend, Donna O'Brien, an incredibly talented artist. I'm so captivated by this woman's art. Visit her blog and see for yourself. WOW!
Another well known friend gave Ulla this bird in a basket. Does anybody recognize the work? It's the one and only Nicol Sayre. I swear it took me 20 minutes just to work my way through Ulla's house because of all the "gifts from friends"!

During that time of feeling as if I had lost an appendage I worked on boring, but neccesary, administrative issues and catching up on my summer to-do list. I also took a day to play with a friend of mine, Ulla. She's an INCREDIBLE artist and teacher, and I'm honored to know her. I went to Ulla's studio with the intention of learning how to solder but what I ended up with was soooo much more! Within minutes of arriving, creative sparks were flying and all bets were off! Here's a peak at the end result. I'm really happy with the way these vintage bottles turned out and can't wait to make some more. These will definitely become part of my gift line. Stay tuned for the official launch! Anyhow, let me know what you think. I welcome the feedback.
For all of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting Ulla and some of her incredible dolls (a small sampling of her numerous talents) here's a peak into her fabulous world....
