The past few days have brought some lovely surprises. Meeting Christie Repasy was one, along with the opportunity to purchase 2 pieces of her work. Deciding what to buy was the real problem! If you had seen all the beautiful canvases in her booth, you would totally understand my problem. I finally chose these 2.
The painting of the roses is about 16 x 20. The painting of the sweet birds is about 8 x 10. I wanted a rose painting, but I couldn’t get the birds out of my mind. How to decide between them? Christie had a buy one canvas, get another free special and I gladly took advantage of it. They are hanging on my wall in the apartment and I will frame them when I get back home in July. Aren’t they beautiful? I have another in mind that I will order in a few months. It is a yard long painting of roses that will go perfectly over my window.
This morning I read my comments and found one from Betzie saying I had won a giveaway! I am one of those people who never win giveaways, so needless to say, I was surprised and delighted. Betzie is sending me two beautiful pink glass salt and pepper shakers. They are quite lovely and I can’t wait to receive them. I will post photos when I do!
And my alter ego, Claudie in Canada is featuring Mockingbird Hill Cottage on her blog this week! Thank you so much Claudie! We have a problem typing each other’s name – I always type her name as Claudia and she types mine as Claudie. We’re getting better at it, slowly but surely.
I must get back to work preparing for the last 2 weeks of classes. Soon I will reach the half-way point of my time here. More later.
