Merchant Mermaid

MD117

I love Mill Hill Crystal Treasures and beads nestled
between silky stitches on cross-stitch handwork.
It seems to me that they could have been harvested by mermaids in deep sea gardens and then sold to
merchants traveling the abyss.

Spring Topiary Garden

MD110

A pair of butteryfly-winged damsels oversee an early spring garden. The garden wears a gown of green and her overflowing urns are crowned with filigree gates and trellises, its lace made up of fresh sprouts and ribboned with perfectly trimmed boxwood. The jewels are the sparkling first flush of lavender, clover and lady’s slipper, the hem is made of mossy covered columns and the buttons are shiny stepping stones.
