"Art is my vehicle through life; may we share the ride together." Ron Wickersham

I just received an e-mail from Gail at Shabby Cottage Studio that I won one of four birthday giveaways on her blog! It's a beautiful hanging magnetic board with darling flower magnets. You can see it on her blog and, while you're there, check out all her neat art and photographs. She also has a great etsy site, wonderful products including digital collage sheets (pay for them, then download to your computer to use whenever you like - very convenient as there's no shipping!), and very prompt service.

The rest of my day went well too. I met five dear friends for lunch at a nearby tea room in an antique mall and we ate, chatted and browsed most of the day. Five hours to be exact - in fact we were still chatting out in the parking lot after leaving the mall and one man came out and asked it we wanted to rent the conference room! It was a great day catching up with everyone and looking for treasures. I only found a few things - a nice silverplate spoon for another spoon fairy (previous post awhile ago), a darling tiny glass cup and saucer to add to my shelf with my kids' old silver baby cups and christening dresses, an old package of rick-rack (original price on this is $.15 and I paid $.25! It'd be much more in the fabric or scrapbooking stores.), a very old tape measure and a few vintage photos of "instant ancestors." It was a fun day.
