Happy Friday to me!

So, I got a package today - I was thinking about this package for days! Days!!! Do you remember when I told you about PVE designs?? Well, Patricia had a wonderful French scene she had sketched out when she was traveling by boat in a canal this summer while vacationing {in France of course.} I saw it and was in love instantly!!! **By the way - I'm obsessed with art of other artists.** I was completely overwhelmed when I found out she SELLS her work!!

Today, the door bell rang - I about broke my neck to get to the door - because I knew it was my mailman!!! His grumpy ol' self had to get his bald head out of the car and come to my door and ring my bell because my package would not fit in the box! {thank you Patricia, if you only knew how much I love antagonizing that man - another story for another post!} Everybody was eating lunch - but the dog and Hudson ran close behind me. I threw open the door and we all stood still in our tracks - there she was - my package!

I got everybody back to the kitchen - washed my hands and started ripping through the box! And there it was - this . . .
Look at it!? Aren't you jealous?! Who cares what is in it - look at that wrapping! Oh, how I love packaging! I held back the obnoxiousness as I slowly opened {didn't quite tear into this one - couldn't - it was just so dang beautiful!} Then the heavens parted, the angels sang and there was the most beautiful sight I've ever seen . . .. {okay, maybe not the most beautiful - My kids are actually tied for the number 1 slot!} But anyways there it was . . .
My sketch with an unbelievable 5 inch mat encompassing it's beauty! Just in case you cannot tell - I love this kind of stuff - L-O-V-E it!

And that's not all people . . .
She sent me a lovely note, as well as . . .
Notecards she designed!! Only special people will be getting these! And my absolute fav-O-rite . . .
Oh, it's Red!! And it's going in a frame in my studio!!

So, how much do you love this? Go check her out - and get some PVE art for you - you will be so glad you did!

Obviously, I didn't break up with my dear friend {!} - how could I when I received a package like this - my point would not have been felt with a bunch of {.}!

What beautiful work she does!! You are going to have a fun time this weekend with all your new goodies. I know what you mean about the mail man...my poor little guy gets totally winded when he comes to my door. Then you add my two kids and two barking dogs and he gets a nervous twitch throws my mail at me and high tails it back to his mail mobile!! Please share where you hang your picture.

That's PVE for you! I'm not surprised. She's just amazing. I have my original moving card framed and on my entry table. Check out my blog to see the banner she did for me.
