Sunshine Award

"Sunshine Award"

I received this lovely blog award from two very special friends of mine....Maggie from The Magpie's Nest and Stephanie from Dragonfly Design Studios. A very sincere thank you goes out to both of you for thinking of me.

Maggie is a wonderful graphic artist who designs beautiful collage sheets and giclee art prints. She sells them in her Etsy store Magpie Mine.

"Wintry Women"

This is only one example of the type of work she does. Please check out all she has to offer. I love her work and I get lost in a retro fantasy as I browse through her huge selection.

My dear friend Stephanie paints like a dream. Her subject of choice is flowers from her garden. This is one of my favorite...


You can find her work here in her etsy store. She sells original paintings, greeting cards, and ACEO cards...and if this is not enough she also likes to make altered books.
Both ladies are so very talented and I'm honored to know them.

  1. Thank you Charlie - reminds me of a pocket full of sunshine!

  2. I'm walking on Sunshine....Oh Charlie you are too sweet and yes I had to climb the equipment...the little pill wouldn't come

    Now..about your horse entry...very beautiful. Horses are very new to me as my daughter has taken lessons for 4 years now. She also volunteers at a Therapeutic Horse riding facility so we know the calming effect of horses. And as you know, she also cares for her little heifer Roque. Sounds like you had a wonderful day...and gossip to boot...nice!

    ps. I'll put the award on later when I have more time...thanks again my dear..(((HUG)))
