Amazing Friendships You Make in Blog Land!

I don't know what it is, but every time I have really, really bad days at work, I get home to find little unexpected surprises at my door! I must say, this surprise, was a BIG SURPRISE and it was from the amazingly talented Kimmie Owens of "Once Upon a Blue Crow." Look at what she sent me...It will blow your socks right off your feet!

Kimmie Owens a ways back had posted on her blog, (by the way, check out her blog at this amazing painting she did with Crows. Well, I saw it and commented on how nice it would be to have since it had Crows in it. I really fell in love with it, but the painting had sold already. This little sweetheart created another painting with a beautiful dream tree with quotes all in it and she sealed the entire painting with beeswax and sent it off to me! I've been crying happy tears ever since I got home! LOL
Kimmie, I absolutely love this painting you did for me and I can't thank you enough for your kind and generous heart that you have. Like the title of this post, "Amazing Friendships You Make in Blog Land" is worth it's weight in gold and they are forever! I will treasure this painting forever Kimmie! Thank you again for this amazing gift! As you quoted..."Always Believe in your Dreams"... and I always will!
