The best Surprise ever

original art by Sarah Sullivan - 2009

I lack the proper words to describe my happiness. Today I won something that I will treasure when it arrives.

Cottage Garden Studios have had a giveaway of some original art by teacher, artists and mother of five - Sarah Sullivan. She does a kind of warm whimsical art filled with mystical creatures and characters. There is a earthy and kind air to her work and it's filled with witches, cats and unicorns.

She also wrote some very nice words about my photography and my blog which makes me very happy. Here I am living a life in Sweden and this amazing woman is sending me some of her original art from Idaho. Boy, am I lucky. I am thankful for the influx of goodness coming my way lately.

This is only one of several kind words that have traveled my way recently. Both from people I have gotten to know on the blogosphere and in real life. You know who you are.

I will find a special place for this when it has traveled all the way to Sweden.

Congratulations! I love Sarah's work, and I think that her whimsical, "nature" art will fit well in Sweden (which I have visited and loved, by the way!).Enjoy your surprise!

Thanks once again. You totally made my day. My mother was very impressed by your work by the way, which is always a good sign. :)


I think so too. It will certainly fit in my apartment. I get much inspiration from nature, so I think you are spot on!


Thanks for your congratulations. This is a joyous occasion indeed. I am reading your post "Ode to joy" as we speak. It makes me smile.

It' so fun to see my work pop up on your page - thank you again!
Hope your week is going well - had to giggle at you "Sweet" comment - yes they are VERY sweet LOL. I don't do dark well - I guess it comes from working with preschoolers for 24 years!! I do on occasion do sexy - but dark.. not so much. Namaste, Sarah
