An Unexpected Present

I am absolutely thrilled!

Debbie over at McCormick Madness {a journal about stuff} has picked Charcoal and crayons for her Blog of the Week.

It is such an honour to be featured there and I am truly touched by her kind words.

Thank you so much for the support and encouragement, Debbie!

I received an unexpected present today...

While doing some Spring cleaning, I decided to organize the front hall closet.  It was about time - we've been tossing random things in there since we moved in.

Way up on the top shelf, I found a bag containing the birthday present that my Mom gave to me last year.  I had totally forgotten about it!  Inside was something special that I thought I'd share with you...

I think that's the best painting tip I've ever received.

Thanks for stopping by.
