Tabatha Renegar, Sign of the Chimes

Tabatha Renegar
Tabatha just sent me this link to her website- she does wonderful work with the most unexpected objects, and it's always a joy to see what she's got going :)
You should definitely check out her website, and look forward to seeing her at the Spring Whimsical Women Show- should we start some kind of official countdown to the show date here on the blog?
