A cute little box I recently found at the store decorated with my watercolor of Anne Elliot looking at the sunset at Lyme. I know I have made many paintings of Anne in similar pose, but I just love showing the play of the wind, probably because I love being outside on windy days myself. When I was a little girl I loved standing outside and letting the wind rage around me and hoped it would make me fly.
Persuasion box with Captain Wentworth's letter. I love these Russian boxes, they are so sturdy and well made I know they will last for many years. Staining them is also fun, something about working with wood is so satisfying.
And last, a P&P ornament, with formidable looking Mr.Darcy on one side and Elizabeth Bennet on the other. Even though this ornament was fun to make, I really prefer watercolors to working with a needle. Sewing, despite of all my mother's efforts, does not come to me easy :)
