Lisa,
they are so beautifully made art-pieces both.Looks like they were made -not by human hands.-but more from a fairy whisper, or the hands of little elfs.
You are the fairy, dear, making one after the other fantastic piece of art, -alwayes filled with the sence of a fairy-tale, that I want to be a part of.
Wonderfull dear lisa.
Hugs, Dorthe
