An Original Surprise

November 5, 2007 at 2:42 pm 5 comments

It’s no secret, I guess, that I’m a big fan of Jess at SparksFly. And now I also know that my husband reads my blog. He bought me this original painting for me for our anniversary. I’m so thrilled. (I guess I really should have gotten him something too… Christmas is coming, honey…I love you!). I picked out a beautiful frame today and I can’t wait until it’s all finished and ready to hang so I can admire it every day.

    whoops! so many typos there. For some reason, my computer keeps shrinking my font… and it is sooo itty bitty, I can hardly read it, much less see a typo! 🙂

    Sparks’s work is beautiful, no wonder you love it! And how sweet of your husband to be thoughtfully sneaky!

    I do read your blog. It shows a different side of you which I sometimes don’t see.
    I’m so glad you like the gift. I think it shows a lot about us as a family. Me, with standard, traditional furniture. You with colors and patterns which I couldn’t imagine.
    The chair is warm and inviting, but a little crooked. Perhaps someone has been jumping on the furniture? I can’t guess who 😉
    As always, Everyone is welcome. Just scooch those birds off. Sit down and “Make Yourself Comfortable”.
