Hi everyone. I hope you all had a fantabulous Valentine's Day. Sadly my hubby, our daughter and I were all struck with a nasty cold, putting a little damper on things. :-( However, before this cold had a chance to knock us down completely, my hubby managed to do something utterly sweet and I just couldn't wait to share it with all of you.
On Saturday he drove me to a little antique district in the heart of Ocean Beach where one can find cute little shops and antique stores. It was meant to be a surprise, but as soon as I knew where he was taking me, I realized what he was up to. You see, a couple of weeks ago while blog surfing, I came across the blog Cordelia's Cottage. Not only did I meet Ms. Cordelia through her blog, but I also found out that she owned a cute little shop in this same district...Cottage Antiques. (If you would like to visit her blog or site, just click on the blog name or site name.) I was thrilled to finally meet Ms. Cordelia in person, but there was more.....
Well, on this particular Saturday Ms. Cordelia was having a "Valentine's Trunk Show" where several artist would be presenting their beautiful and creative creations. Amongst them....are you ready for this?... was the one and only Ms. Christie Repasy. (Click here to visit her beautiful site) She is someone I have admired for a long time and who I think is a very talented artist...
On this day I found out that not only is she very talented, but she is also very sweet and down to earth. Christie, if you read this, it was an honor and pleasure to meet you. Blessings to you always.
I was also fortunate enough to meet two other artists that day, Ms. Lisa of Vintage Bling and Ms. Rita of Mammabellarte who are also extraordinarily talented and very sweet. (Just click on their blog names to visit these lovely ladies.) If Lisa or Rita read this... it was an absolute pleasure meeting you both.
Oh but wait, there is still more. As if the surprise wasn't enough, my hubby bought me this...
Now, not only does her wonderful artwork hang on my walls, it can also hang around my neck...Isn't he just the sweetest hubby? Anyway, I couldn't wait to share this with you, but I think it's time for me to get back into bed...Hopefully this nasty cold will not last too much longer.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and healthy new week.
Hugs and Kisses,
