It's my mom's birthday today!

I've been keeping a secret from you all. I won another item in the silent auction at Tat Days this year.

I needed to keep it from you because my mom reads my blog from time to time. So, today is her birthday and here is her birthday present.

It's a tatted, beaded design and work by Nina Libin.

Her patterns and work are absoultely wonderful!!
Her web page is
Check it out.

Though I bid on several items...this was the one I guarded to the bitter end. I wanted to get this for mom. She loves to dress in formal attire for various events. This will be wonderful for one of those events.

So, mom...

Happy Birthday!


  1. Piekna biżuternia, nie wiem jak jest wykonana, ale nic to...jest piękna.

  2. A truly special gift it is too! I've taken a few of Nina's classes and always kick myself for not keeping up with more of her work as it is so beautiful. Lucky Mom!

  3. Happy Birthday, John's mum. Love Nina's work and this is one of the BEST.

  4. I love Nina's work, and I do hope your mother enjoys the lovely work of a master!

    Happy birthday to your mom!

  5. Happy birthday to your mom. I hope that she enjoys wearing it.

    Perhaps she will come to Tat Days with you in 2012.

  6. Beautiful! Happy Birthday to your Mom. What a fabulous gift.

  7. Nina's beanile lace is always breathtaking to behold, but THIS piece is superlative, and a birthday gift worthy of a first-rate mom like yours, John. I hope her birthday was spent indulgently and she got to wear this for all to see, right out of the wrapping paper.

    Great job, John!
