This is a shadowbox with handmade mini-ceramics. I was at a Craft Festival this past Sunday, looking for something that "spoke" to me. I don't have a lot of room where I live now, so I didn't want anything too big.
This piece (which the guy makes and sells in different colors) usually sells for $79. It was the last day of a 3-day market, and very often folks want to leave with significantly less than they brought in. There are a couple (barely noticeable) scratches in the frame, so he sold it to me for $45! I almost never buy stuff for my home anymore, so this was a huge deal.
Since we are always talking about interior design, I thought I would let you guys see something that I got that pretties up the place.
"I know that something very strange Is happening to my brain.
I'm either feeling very good Or else I am insane.
The seeds of doubt you planted Have started to grow wild
And I feel that I must yield before The wisdom of a child.
And it's love you bring,
No, that I can't deny
With your wings,
I can learn to fly,
Sweet young thing."
