A Priceless Gift

For my birthday, my dear friend Mary Parks created this beautiful painting of redbuds and dogwoods in Brown County.  It is on wrapped canvas, and arrived today.  I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I am with the beauty of this work, and the talent of my friend.

Here are some details:

One of my favorite Brother Cadfael quotes...look carefully in the blooms of the dogwood and redbud to see it!

The Artists signature in the green understory of the trees.

I will use this as a backdrop for some of my dolls, and when not in use for that, it will hang on my wall so I can see it and be  thankful for beauty and friendship.

Mary is on Facebook, and does commission work.  Look her up and see what kind of magic she can create for you!

Thank you, Mary!

Memorial Day

Peonies for Memorial Day.  Red for the blood shed for our freedoms.  Gold for the hearts of the warriors who protect them.  Honor them in thought, word, and especially deed.
