a neighbor which I think will go nicely with this piece.
The artist for this design has "slipped my mind" so will
research and list later.
Interested in handmade lampwork beads?
How about made in the good ole' USA top of the line quality spacer beads, charms, clasps, etc. By Tierra Cast mfgrd. in California?

On the site above is a paint brush and rubber stamp soap that is handmade and marketed as safe and non toxic and she has listed the ingredients.
For those who are super sensitive this might be an answer for you...... I have not ever used it so can't vouch for it. When I see a neat handmade item or product on Etsy I like to put their site up so others can "check it out".
Linda Lover is the featured artist in the Newsletter this month with a great article that is chock full of good information.
Also. Did you know that Dynasty also has a line of wonderful MAKEUP BRUSHES? Go to:
http://www.beautybrushstrokes.com/ you can view and purchase there. Knowing painters we may just find a brush there we want to "try out" when we paint...lol...
JillyBean Fitzhenry, Cristy Hartman, Linda Lover, Kay Quist, Robyn Recca, Sharon Teal Coray, and Sue Hueln are all Dynasty FM Brush Designers.
I sure do wish I could say "I painted this". A find at a local garage sale which will be enjoyed and has a wonderful new home in CA. I took a photo of it and will be trying to NOT duplicate, but use it as inspiration for me to do something similar, using Liquitex acrylics. I love the peeling bark of the tree, the sky and mountain...so it will be fun to see what I can do...
