Thistle Farm Arts

The second piece I received in my creative exchange is from Dani of Thistle Farms Arts. Dani and I have been friends for many years and we both work together as assistants at the pottery studio. Dani is one of these women who can make just about anything, in any medium, do it quickly (you should see her mix glazes!) and she does it all perfectly. She has a great fondness for Martha Stewart (I'll overlook that ;) and has even been featured on her show! (Dani has a chicken, which she named Martha and dressed up in a wig and tiny apron to look like Martha. The chicken's picture was shown on the show and Dani was interviewed over the phone by Martha's herself! - too funny!)

I was pretty excited about my exchange gift. As you can see it's an earring holder! How perfect! I immediately started to fill the holes with earrings and quickly realized how perfect it would be to use as a prop when photographing my earrings. I am always looking for a way to suspend the earrings and this will work like a dream. I am going to have to commission another one in white. :)

Thanks so much, Dani, I just love it!
You can read about Dani's adventures in her blog and be sure to visit her Etsy shop. She has another earring holder in purple!! Hurry!

Oh Dearest Nancy you are so kind. Thanks for the plug and you are making me want to do a trade myself. I have an idea up my sleeve!

I really enjoyed your blog, the story about your friend, and the cute bunny banner concept. I'm a rabbit fan too!

That is really cool. I didn't check to see if she is on Etsy selling those. I'll check.

I received my jewelry yesterday. Both pieces are very beautiful! So much more so than pictured. You should have heard me gasp when I opened it.

Thank you.
