An Original. A One-Off. A unique!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in!
What a rainy day here in Crowborough!
But we had fun on our retreat again.

Today, I just had to share a piece of artwork 
I was given today.

It made me grin from ear to ear!
Check this out....


 Isn’t that fabulous?!?!?

And who created this masterpiece?
Millie Moss her very self.


Let’s get in a little closer, 
because the attention to detail is  baffling...


To think that Millie took the time to conjure up this oh so personal artwork just for me!


 Look. She even put the right number of distress ink in the box,
and even made the flap in the box exactly right, too!


Check out the cowboy boots...


And the DVD's
AND the hills,
AND the brayer...


and I love the sentiment on the inside.


And not only, dearest Millie,
did you give me a totally uplifting piece of original artwork,
but you then allowed me to blog it.
Which has given me hours when I needed them most.


So thank you thank you thank you.

Bedtime now!


Love & hugs

    5. No eating it all at once noo, I was also sad to see my wee Grandson leave P7 his teacher was amazing and boosted his confidence so much you must get really attached to them don't think teachers have the time to get to know the kids as much at High School.
      Cant stop thinking about our Brenda know youll be the same hope she says just even a wee Hi soon...xx

    6. You do get very attached to them, we spend so much time together. Celebrating triumphs, working through things that may be tricky. 30 little people all needed different things, but I love it!

      Yes I'm worried about Brenda too, hoping she is having some support to work through this difficult time. Thinking about her too like you. Xx
