One World One Heart Give Away!

 It is here!
I am participating in the fifth One World One Heart Give Away.
A wonderful event hosted by the Whimsical Bohemian, Lisa Swifka
A HUGE event, so thank you Lisa for hosting one more time!
You can read more by clicking the links above or logo below.
Welcome to Frippery. I am Pam Kern. I love all forms of art and I am a painter, crafter and an amateur photographer.
Mother of 2 college students and wife of 25 years to a wonderful man, owner of
3 dogs, 3 cats and hoping to be mom to a few chickens this summer.
I am an enthusiastic home decorator, furniture revamper and decorative painter.
Much of my inspiration comes from other bloggers and their amazing creativity.

This is an event for bloggers worldwide to meet, get acquainted and share a little bit of themselves in a give away.
A chance to connect with like minded people across the planet.
Also a chance for each participant to host a give away. 
Since I will be flying on the wings of One World One Heart
I have chosen to create a mixed media angel on canvas as my give away prize.
She is painted in acrylic on stretched canvas, 8" by 10", embellished with vintage velvet leaves and fabric flowers in soft pinks and silvers. Since I adore a little sparkle, she also has a hint of magic in the way of some silver glass glitter here and there.
To win her for your very own all you have to do is leave a comment and a way for me to contact you, via email or your blog. Then go visit all of the other fabulous blogs and see what treasures they are giving away as well.
You might make a few new friends along the journey.
I will draw a number at random at the end of the event, February 17th, and announce the recipient of my angel painting. She will then be sent on her way to the winner's home and hopefully bring blessings, grace and a bit of magic along with her.
Good luck and happy visiting.

"There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle."
Robert Alden

Yours in the glow of friendship, P.
Pin It!
