art auction for lorraine....

I am so excited to post this sweet kitty as part of the art auction for my dear friend Lorraine Lewis.  She was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago and my heart has not been the same since.....
I first met Lorraine several years ago when she came to one of our Art Nest retreats and then shortly after that she and her darling girls joined our Art Group.   She has such a beautiful, kind heart, I am just thrilled to make something for her auction.

The auction will be this Saturday on Instagram.  Search @heart_and_hand to see the lovely things you can bid on.  Also search #artauctionforlorraine to see all the posts.

Written by Brookey Smith, Lorraine’s daughter, “Anyone who knows my mom, Lorraine Lewis, can’t say enough about what an angel she is.  She is beautiful, kind, loving, giving, and selfless.  Our friend Stephanie Lee said, “One thing I know for sure is that the light your mom is in this world is such an indescribable blessing for so many of us.”  In this last whirlwind of a month in finding out about her cancer and how aggressive it is, this is how I have come to see her, a pillar of light.  She radiates hope and joy.  She believes in miracles and because of the blessing she is in other’s lives we know we will see them.”

kitty is 12 inches tall and made with vintage fabrics, glass buttons, and tiny velvet millinery flowers. The tiny pink velvet ears and aqua eyes are dyed silk velvet.  The little sheer flocked cheeks were cut from a tattered sheer prom dress :)  and the pink polka dot nose is from a vintage Minnie Mouse costume!  Her face is cut from a vintage linen dresser scarf and her skirt is made from a vintage ric rac apron, perfect for Lorraine as she is such a great cook, I have enjoyed so many of her fabulous recipes!

I chose to make a kitty as Lorraine sewed and painted over 24 kitties for our Art Group to decorate one  Halloween  Here is Lorraine at our Witches Night Out Art Group in her winning cat costume with an armful of kitties decorated by everyone~

Thank you for sending your love to Lorraine, See you at the auction,
