Thank You!

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a prize in a lovely giveaway hosted by Ingrid at Fashion is My Muse. To mark her 350th post and second blogging anniversary, Ingrid invited her readers to tell her about their favourite post of hers in order to be in the race to win. Imagine how thrilled I was to discover that I was a winner! Yesterday my parcel arrived, and from within I pulled a set of notecards and two gorgeous textile pieces featuring an eighteenth century lady and gentleman. Ingrid you see, is a lady of many talents; a Toronto based artist who creates meaningful, beautiful pieces that resonate and delight. Fashion really is her muse, and in both her art and her blog, Ingrid delivers thoughtful and perceptive commentary about the meaning and power of clothing and it's links with our identity. If this interests you as much as it does me, then I urge you to visit Ingrid's blog and follow links to her art from there, too. 

(And if you happen to be in Toronto, Ingrid's next show, All is Vanity, is running between the 22nd January and 13th February 2011 at The Loop Gallery, 1273 Dundas Street West). 

Ingrid, thank you so much for my prizes; they will be displayed with pride. In return, I give you wine and dahlias (in photographic form!)


  1. Dear Laura,
    What a surprise to find that I'm the subject of your post! I'm blushing! Next time you come to Toronto you must come for a studio visit.
    Best wishes!

  2. Ingrid, I would love to come and visit your studio! I will definitely let you know :)
