I know… I’m bad. Here I am talking about Easter Baskets and Spring, but first: look at the beautiful starry night sky Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey has created in The Seraglio or Thinking about Mary Stewart! I love the glaze painted over the harlequin diamond patterned paper (and Lora gives tips in her blog post, so be sure to check it out).
There might be one or two of you out there who made the leap after you read the above title. Mary, Lady Stewart, was once (and still is in my opinion) the queen of the romantic suspense novel.
She wrote many, many books including the famous Merlin series and some children’s books as well, but my favorites were always the lyrical tales of mystery and suspense she wove around an adventurous woman who found herself in peculiar circumstances who never ran for the hills unless that was where the trouble was.
Curious and lively, smart and humble, she was well bred and polite, but never a snob. Those books were always good reads and I still pick them up from time to time and feel as if I’m with an old friend.
One of them called, “The Gabriel Hounds” was set quite a bit in an old, nearly empty palace that contained within it’s walls a seraglio, or harem. That novel and the seraglio was the inspiration for this piece.
Ok… really this time: A NEW Easter Basket Kit!!
Note: the kit includes instructions on wrapping the silk ribbons to make the pretty basket handle (and the pink & blue silk ribbons are included, too).
Some of the items are available separately (like the Chocolate Bunny and Tiny Yellow Duckling shown below) but many like the tiny bag of candies, chocolate birdnest, wicker basket, colored eggs and bunny sucker are only in the kit.
More info on the kit page.
