Nature Of Fabric ATC Swap - Post #9

Today's featured swapper is
Liz Waring of
 
 
This is the wonderful ATC
Liz created for our swap:

 
And here is a peek at the
gorgeous fabric and lace journal,
Liz is creating to house
the swap returns:
 
Visit Liz's post HERE,
there are more pictures to ooh and ahh over.
 
Liz sells beautiful vintage finds in her etsy shop
and she has a second blog,
where she shares her treasures found at
French brocantes and English bootfairs
 with her followers.
This beautiful example is from her shop:
 
German born, Liz
moved to England at 20.
She admits to rapidly approaching 60,
but in her mind, if not her body (her words),
she is still that young girl.
She is married for 32 years,
mother to 3 adult sons,
and Gram to 3 granddaughters.
 
Liz keeps 2 homes.
The first, in the UK,
is a classic Victorian home
in the very historic 1066 country.
The second,
is a 150 year old farm cottage in
Burgundy, France.
 
In France,
at times not spent truffling for treasures,
Liz can be found in her craft van,
listening to country music
as she creates her magic.
 
When asked to describe herself,
Liz says:
(I am) "eccentric, doolally, bonkers,
happy, smiley,
arty, crafty,
romantic, loving,
argumentative,
hoarder-y"
 
 
Thank you Liz,
for sharing yourself
and your art with us.
 
hugs, JOY, and a lovely weekend,
Blessings,
Kimberly

I saw this on Liz's post and I am blown away at the creativity of making a book with pockets to display ATCs. Brilliant Genius! Lovely Lacilicious display. Once again I am so sad I missed this swap Kimberly. You are the hostess with the mostess dear...

It was the best swap ever and I am so delighted with the ATCs I received from the others. I hope I have done them justice with the fabric book. Thank you so much for the lovely post.

I am in awe of the beautiful ATC I received from Liz and the speed at which she finished all of her pieces! The fabric journal is incredible ~ not to mention genius! I adore the rich textures and the beautiful way all the pieces are framed on each page of the journal
I must admit I was tempted to order some of the scrumptious lace and ticking she has in her shop for this swap. The only thing that stopped me was the fear of missing deadline.

My first comment seems to have disappeared. Sometimes I perform magic without even knowing it ; )
I loved reading your post about Liz. I am thrilled to have one of her gorgeous ATCs. Her lace book is totally gorgeous! Wow! I am so honored that my ATC has a place in it. Thank you Liz!
Hugs,
Terri
