Zoe's Amazing Creation

The other day I received a most incredible creation in the mail, all the way from Australia no less!  Zoe McGrath created this AMAZING carousel that WORKS!  See the pink round dial with the pearl accent?  You just use the pearl as a handle, and turn the knob, and the horse goes UP and DOWN!  I was incredulous that Zoe would mail this to me, from Aussie land to Canada where I live!  I am a lucky, lucky girl!  Here is a link to her original blog post, where she has a short video showing this carousel actually working! 
Zoe used Wings of Hope, the horse I did for Whimsy Stamps that is being used to raise funds for Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.  Two dollars from every sale of this rubber stamp is donated to help in Haiti's recovery. 
And I'd like to help raise awareness for Zoe's brand new store based out of Australia!  She is selling all sorts of lovely crafting supplies for the stamper/scrapper, so go check it out HERE!
Here are a couple of side views of this work of art that show you some of the details:

Zoe has really touched my heart that she would make this beautiful creation and then send it to me.  Thank you Zoe!  You're the best! xo
Thanks for visiting my blog today Precious Peeps.   I hope you enjoyed seeing what Zoe made for me!
