A Tattered n' Torn Kind of Love

I admit it....I have always wanted at least one....

Even before starting my blogging journey, I had heard of this amazing husband/wife duo that created some of the finest prim wares I'd ever seen.

And the insidious lusting and longing began.....

But this artistic duo did not sell online....and they lived farther than an old crow's flight away.....
 So, once my journey began, I sat and watched as they posted photos of their wonderful goodes that were not to be had on their blog, and as their delightful wares appeared on the blogs of others fortunate enough to attend shows where these two set up shop....

And the longing grew deeper and more intense.

And then, one day, it finally happened....."They" offered a few things for sale on their blog, and it went from there.....The "she" part of the duo actually specially made two "special" gals for me.....

I'm most pleased ~ and honored ~ to introduce Eliza....an original creation handcrafted by the overly-talented (and way-too-funny) Stacey McClure of tattered 'n torn prims:





And Eliza's BFF, Jane:



(Some photos "borrowed" from Stacey as she is a much better photographer than I am....Gee, bet you can't guess which photos are hers, can you?)

And sweet Stacey gifted me with this bemusing angel hanger.....Perhaps she thought I needed a little "angel dust" to help me atone for all that lusting and longing that had been going on...Thank you, so much, Stacey.....


Like I said.....A tattered n' torn kind of love......

:o))))
