A Drawing and I Won? :-))

Over the past few months I found the most darling and creative blogger. Her name is Laurie and you can find her at http://lauriescharmingdesigns. She not only is just the sweetest gal out there, her work is just the most creative I've ever seen. She can paint on virtually "anything." If you haven't been by her blog you're in for a treat. She had a drawing a couple of weeks ago.. and "yes" shouting in an almost subdued voice :-) I "won" ! Imagine my excitement. I could barely contain myself. :-)) And girls, I "never" win anything. Look at this darling snowman she painted on a vintage spoon.
I worked and worked to get a "decent" picture of this darling spoon. I'm not sure if it's the camera or me.. so please: (Click on picture for a close up)
I absolutely "adore" snowmen. So this darling little guy will go perfectly with all the other snowmen. However, I believe he'll take center stage. What do you think?




Laurie, I cannot thank you enough for drawing my name for this beautiful spoon. I will cherish it always. It will be proudly displayed during the holidays, and each every time I look at it I'll think of you and your sweetness.... Girls, don't forget to go by and see Laurie at http://lauriescharmingdesigns/. My camera skills do not do this beautiful work of art justice. You'll enjoy the stop. hugs ~lynne~

Congrats on your win, Lynne! It sure is cute!

Glenda said...

Not sure if it is luck or just your karma working for you, but right now everything seems to be working out in your favor. So glad to see the New Year start on a better footing. Last year was a bummer for sure.

I had, and am unable to locate at the moment, a saw blade that had a picture painted on it. The blade had been crafted into a wall clock after the painting was completed. I found it at a Craft Fair, when we still went to those. Not many are conducted in our area lately.
