BESTeam feature on Redemption Art

I don't know where to start.  As I browse through Redemption Art's shop on Etsy I find the most unusually things.  This time I came across Yarn!  A vintage skein of Llama yarn in this raw form.  Ready for any weaver to create the most amazing scarf.  If this is you hurray over to Redemption Art's before someone else scoops it up!

Natural Raw llama yarn fibers

The fiber is very nice to the touch and very natural in that it is uneven and sort of unrefined.

The Next thing that caught my attention was this Vintage Asian Vase . This beautiful, old, vase describe by Connie as possibly Japanese from Occupied Japan era. Stands 5 1/2" tall by 3 1/2" at its widest part. (Hand?) Painted with peonies, lilies and embellished with gold. This vase was part of a Japanese Botsudan, is well used with some of the paint worn in places. Still would be beautiful on a desk as a pen/pencil holder or fill with fresh flowers.

Lastly, I found two Miniature Vintage Japanese Ceramic Butsudan Alter Cups.  These cups were blessed and ready for destruction, given to Connie by Buddhist Priests who gave her their blessings to find new homes for them, as they said they would rather see that then to see them be destroyed. The larger cup is about 2" tall with the cup about 1 3/4" in diameter, decorated with a gold peonie or water lily and trimmed with gold. The smaller cup is a tad over 1 1/2" tall and the cup is about 1 1/4" wide. It is painted with gold which has become a little worn with handling over the years.  These pieces, besides being vintage and unique are just such beautiful and dainty pieces of Asian glass ware.
