This beautiful thing…

27 05 2008

A friend, whom I have never even met, has made this amazing gift for me. She would take no payment.

I really wonder at the goodness of the people I’ve met on my Path; I’m just going to have to work harder on paying it forward and spreading the wealth a little!

It is an altar top for my temple, and it fits precisely into the frame I already possessed for it. I have yet to stain and lightly varnish it; it’s so wonderful and perfect that I’m almost afraid to.

When I opened the parcel, it filled the room with the smell of smudgesmoke and incense. Truly, amazing.

I love the grain on the wood, it looks like clouds around the tree. Marie – I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was blown away, absolutely blown away, when I saw it. And the amazing thing is, this isn’t all of it. Marie did a green man on the reverse for me, so I could test the stain and varnish without affecting the main picture.

It’s of similar quality to the front – ie outstanding. What an amazing present to get – I’m still reeling, actually. How lucky am I?

It’s really something, isn’t it. We’re actually meeting in person at the end of June – hooray!

Makes me feel a bit mercenary…. *wink*

This is gorgeous. I marvel at the lettering, it makes me bow down to the skill needed.

I will be shipping something your way this weekend… 🙂

Hooray! Thank you Beweaver, I am surrounded by beautiful things!

I believe Marie does all this freehand. I know she uses a naked flame for a lot of her work. Stunning stuff!

Shamrockwitch -awww, see me blush!! I still look at this altar top and can’t quite believe my eyes, that it’s here in my room! I think Marie – or Arnametia, as you know her! – is a genius at this work. She’s been hiding her light under a bushel for a long time!

Mama Kelly – thank you so much for coming by! Good to see you.
