A Sabii Wabii Song

See this design, well this is the design that made me fall in love with Terisa when she wrote about her idea to store ribbon, on her beautiful blog called...

Sabii Wabii, Running With Scissors

Recently Terisa gave me an award. When I first started visiting Terisa I was taken with her talent, and I fell in love with her style. It comes as a real compliment receiving an award from someone you admire. Besides being an inspiration and always full of surprises, she is forever featuring other artists and bloggers on her blog. Congratulations Terisa for winning this award.

When I took a look at number six of her rules for this award, I thought I would do something a little different. Instead of an academy award like speech...like Terisa so brilliantly wrote on her post, I would like to sing a Sabii Wabii song.

One look at her and her husband's designs in the Altered Couture Magazine and you know that talent is all over the place at Terisa's house.

Terisa was one of the contributing artists to Love Squared, a doll which was created to auction for the benefit of the Susan G Komen foundation for breast cancer awareness.

Here is a beautiful design that Terisa created for her Kentucky Derby Hat Swap.

Whether Terisa is staging a wedding in Napa Valley for a photo shoot, or designing some incredible creation, she is always full of fun, creativity and inspiration. Oh, and I won't even begin to talk about the music on her blog!!!

Terisa wrote "This last weekend I spent working with my good buddy staging a MOCK wedding for photos. I did flowers, bouquets and corsages even."

Her husband Dave and Terisa combine their talents and sell gorgeous creative art on their Etsy Shop.

What is more fun than winning a blogging award...giving it away, of course. The following blogs are filled with incredible beauty and inspiration. So, I would like to present this award to:

Vanessa from A Fanciful Twist
Sandra from Sandra Evertson
Constance from Rochambeau
Cielo of The House in The Roses
LIsa from Whimsical Bohemian
Mo'a from Mo'a Romig Boyles
Nancy of Fete et Fleur

The rules for this lovely award are;

1.The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.
6. Write an acceptance speech in the style of the Academy Awards, thanking every body's mother, father, sister, brother, aunties and uncles and the kitchen staff at your favorite restaurant!

Miss Terisa, perhaps it was fate that we met. Whether I had taken my dad's advice and been an intern that summer with Mr. Mackie, or we met here in Blogland, I knew that you were a kindred spirit. The song for this post is as much fun as you are, and welcome back from your summer vacation. What better song to celebrate a Sabii Wabii tale than Hello Dolly.

P.S. This fashion design was created by Terisa when she had a fashion line of clothing. "My label was carried in small boutiques as well as a shop inside the Nordstrom mall called, IN SAN FRANCISCO."

I told you, she was full of surprises!
