delightful mystery



I just had to take a picture. I took all the dolls down off my walls and threw them in a heap in one of our guest rooms. I forgot they were in there when my bi-monthly housekeepers came the other day. when they left, I was delighted to see them all lined up on the couch in that room. Actually...I am wondering if it was the houskekeepers or....they might have decided to all climb up on that couch themselves. we may never know...

I'm speechless!!!






I AM OVERWHELMED AT THE MOMENT...I just got home from the post office where I received a box from Deb Denton. I was talking to Tracy about some other things on the phone while I was standing in the kitchen opening this mysterious box. It didn't look like a box for the art asylum room, as I was peeling back the hot pink and orange tissue. I gasped when I saw the most amazing book/journal I have ever seen. I told Tracy that I needed to call him back...

At least 39 artists from past artfests contributed a 5x7 handmade page that is beautifully bound into a gorgeous book! Tracy arrived home only about 10 minutes later and I was choking back the emotion as I was reading the letter aloud to him. All we could both say was WOW!!! I will be sitting down after my work day is through tonight and reading through every single page and just savoring every little detail. Boy you really know how to make someone feel like the queen of the universe!

...you all just have to see it. I'll bring it to Artfest so you can stop by and see it in the gallery! To everyone who contributed...I don't even know what to say...Thank you from the bottom of my heart doesn't even begin to cut it. I'm still in wonder and amazement!
