And the Painting Goes To...

...Mary of The Fresh Notes. Mary started blogging around the same time I did, and I was immediately drawn to her fresh style and writing! In her blog she shares about life, love and cooking!! It seems like we are growing up together in blogland and I am happy that my lovely lady is heading her way!

Thank you all for your entries - makes me feel so good that you would like to own a piece of my art! - and all your birthday wishes. I appreciate you all so much - you have no idea!

As to the starfish candle holder from this post, which many have asked me about, we think that Daniel brought it back for me from a trip to Ohio one year. He couldn't remember where he got it. Sorry!

I've been working on more art and will share a painting with you tomorrow! Now I'm off to visit your blogs...


  1. Congratulations Mary! I'm off to sulk a little now :) Just kidding!
    Seriously, I'm off to check Mary's blog!

  2. Congratulations to Mary. How lovely. I really like your little Mexican clay figures - especially the nuns.

  3. congrats to Mary, and so nice that you guys have grown up here together... very sweet.

  4. Congrats to Mary, I met her blog through you and have made it one of my daily checks. Thanks so much for the connection.

  5. Congratulations to Mary, I bet she will be thrilled. Yes, the starfish candle holder was indeed very romantic. Makes you wish there was a blackout, actually no. I don't want a blackout, I just want the candle glow.
