Miss Sandy of Quill Cottage sent me the most wonderful journal!!! I love these mini composition books and Sandy has given it the most beautiful transformation! And this was just because I entered her giveaway ~ what an angel! Thank you so much dear friend, it's absolutely beautiful and you know I just love it!!
Friday I had to run to the post office and mail out several artwork packages plus the giveaway package for Yvette, then headed to my favorite antique store, The Plum Tree! It was absolutely gorgeous....a holiday wonderland! Candles burning, soft lighting, Thanksgiving decor mingled with antiques and the most beautiful Christmas room filled to the brim!!!
I scratched around because, basically, that's what I do....dig for treasures at great prices. I found several stacks of Somerset magazines brought in by one of my most favorite dealers, The Tattered Cat, and had to buy a few ~ at 2.00 a pop I couldn't go wrong! As I'm thumbing through them, I discover an artist that I love, Sunny Koch, and several pages featuring her work....I knew it was a must-have.
Then as I'm looking through the store I discover a book that has my name written all over it!!! (Well, not really my name but you know what I mean) Bird Egg Feather Nest by Maryjo Koch! Do you think it was meant to be for me to find both of these artist's work today??? They are mother and daughter and I love them both. Their style, talent and taste is just beautiful to me.....so it was a good day!
They co-wrote a wonderful book, Vintage Collage Works that I have and now I need to pull it out and study it again. Does looking at other's artwork inspire you?? It definitely does me ~
I hope you have a great fall weekend. Relax and enjoy those you love ~
