Beaded Sugarplums...

If you've been visiting me for a while, you'll know that I adore the work of my friend, Paulette of Beedeebabee blog. I've crowed about her before, but when someone makes beautiful things, you really never can say enough about them.

Her beaded needlework pins are truly exquisite works of art, and as I just acquired two new ones, I pulled out most of my collection to share with you - and sing her praises, yet again.
Just look at her handwork, guys and girls! Tiny flowers, pearls, sequins, crystals and teeny, tiny stitches make her pieces beyond elegant. The white heart caught my eye when I visited her Etsy shop recently, so I knew I had to have it.
This was the pin she created for me when we did a swap. I created one of my ribbon embroidered hearts and an embroidered zipper bag for her. (You can read about it in this post.) She stitched this pin in my favorite colors and it's another wonderful example of her creative eye and expertise.
This is one of Paulette's Sampler Pins. I love the variety of stitches and sparkling beads. Look at how perfect her beaded edgings are!
And this is my other newest acquisition - just in time for the holidays - a Gingerbread House! It comes complete with a snowy roof and candy-colored trim - a tiny vision of sugarplums!

Paulette's Etsy shop, Beedeebabee, is stocked with a wonderful array of incredible pieces. I'm sure you'll find something you'd love to add to your jewelry box!
I also wanted to tell you that I've extended my Etsy shop sale until December 1st. I know my holiday giving centers around handcrafted presents...either my own creations or the work of others. Etsy is a perfect place to find that special something for everyone on your list. Have fun shopping!

I couldn't agree more, Donna! I too, have a growing collection of Beedeebabee items that I cherish! What's astounding about Paulette's work is that it's kind of quietly brilliant. Her work is striking and adorable at first sight to be sure, but then your eyes sort of sink into a deeper level where you see the details of the piece, which are so very tiny (pictures don't do her work justice, ladies) and yet every single stitch, bead & flower is applied with absolute perfection. Paulette makes what she does look easy, because all of her work is so beautiful and "cute". But once you hold one in your hands and realize the scale of the piece, you get a whole other appreciation of the finite detail of her art, and you're blown away all over again.

On top of that, Paulette also happens to be one of the kindest people and best bloggie friends a girl could ask for. She's a gem, through & through.

**Paulette, if you're reading this I'm sure it'll make you blush, but I mean every word, darlin'!**

Thanks for featuring Paulette's work Donna! I love to sing the praises of our friend Beedeebabee!

Donna, I'm was so taken back when I stumbled on this post, I needed to run for my tissue box! Oh my gosh, thank you for all the sweet things you wrote and the beautiful pictures. You made me feel like a queen today, and thank you to all the girls who wrote such nice things...I can't stop my eyes from watering. Sending you a very big hug, dear girl. Once again, you've touched my heart like you'll never know. xoxo Paulette
