Aladdin's cave parcel

I received an unexpected package of gorgeousness in the post this week, from the sweet and extremely talented Luthien of Altered Alchemy.

Luthien makes the most creative mixed media journals, jewellery and artwork. I can spot her work a mile away - she has such a distinctive style, each piece full of texture and depth and beauty. I've been am admirer of her work for ages!
Luthien had told me that she was sending me some luggage tags that she had bought from her friend's new etsy shop, as she knows I often use them in my work. And very beautiful tags they are too, but just look at all the other treasures she sent along with them!!
The colours of these jasper beads are so beautiful....
And I almost hyperventilated when I saw these wonderful aged book pages and - oh joy! - KEYS!! 

I'm going to have so much fun using these! And aren't I lucky to have such lovely friends?


  1. How special... such gorgeous treasures... and yes I love those keys too...
