Le Sigh. I want these and there's no way in tiddlywinks I'm gonna get them. Aherm. $540.
But a girl can dream. Fancy a couple cowgirl motifs? At least I can be inspired.

Tammy Gilley... giddy stitches.
I love Tammy. Not only is she an incredible artist, she has the world's best laugh. I promise to interview her soon, so you can learn more, but in the meantime, stop by her blog.

Lucky Jackson... Lucky Us!
I'm nothing if not dramatic, as you probably know by now. But you will join the drama club when you see this work. Don't say you won't.
See!? You squealed with delight, didn't you?
My first reaction upon happening across Lucky Jackson's work and 365luckydays: "Shut. Up." (Say that in a high pitched squeal of a voice... go ahead. Try it.)
And then... "Holy crap. No Way." (Truth told I was more dramatic in my choice of language, but kids read this.)
Then... "O.M.G. this is for reals! These are really hand stitched!" (By now I'm jumping up and down in my seat because I can't wait to show you.)
This is what Lucky Jackson creates with floss and a needle... For serious.
I love the vintage imagry, the soft backgrounds, the multi-media flair. It all speaks to me. And the simple fact of it's originality sorta pushes me over the edge.
Lucky has been creating a piece of art a day as part of her 365 Lucky Days project... and now we are about to reap the rewards.
She had been planning on keeping these pieces as part of a collection, but has instead decided to sell some of these babies. On Monday, December 5 at noon EST, they will be in her Etsy shop.
I know. I shouldn't have told you. Now I'll have to knock you over in line and possibly trample you when we get there. That's right... dramatic + pushy. Such a charming combination.
