Two Words: WANDA. ROCKS.

Well, let me tell you, my strange little blogger family...this strange little bloggy world is getting more and more embedded in my heart and life.

A while ago, I posted about how my walls and rooms had gaps and empty spaces where future ex had taken something in the physical division of our property. It was rather a downer. Well, I got so many wonderful suggestions for filling those gaps. And I intend to use almost all of them! But let me tell you...Wanda blew my mind!

For those of you who know Wanda, you are familiar with her paintings. Well she commented on my post offering to let me choose from prints of many of her paintings. I was so blown away by the offer. She was going to have the print matted and would mail it to me. Honestly, if I mail a bill, it's a banner day for me.

Well, I couldn't choose between the old truck and the girl in white. So I told her to pick for me and surprise me. Well, the print arrived the other day. I meant to post that it had arrived but got side tracked. Wanda sent me the girl in white!! She's SO gorgeous in person. Much better than the picture on the web. I got all teary as I unpacked her. What a gorgeous gift, Wanda! If you haven't seen her on Wanda's site, here's a shot I pilfered from Wanda's blog:

Wanda matted my print in a beautiful cream matte with a dark brown inner matte. I'm not good at describing it. But it's GORGEOUS.


Is that not the sweetest thing in the world? So one blank spot down. About...25 more to go! HA! Time to dig out some of my old photography. Some local frame store is going to LOVE me.


Wanda, I so totally love you!

What a sweet sweet lady!And her creations are so beautiful! Your previous post about poetry was hysterical, the William Shatner thing reminded me of the Dave Letterman Top Ten List books(I think there were 3), anyway, one of them had something about rejected advertising ideas, and I crack up every time I think of "I'm Not Going To Pay A Lot For This Muffler"- a dramatic reading by James Earl Jones. I am now going to pepper my speech with "yicky".

It's gorgeous. Is it coincidence how similar the girl in white is to the photo on the left of Tourette's mom back in the day?

That is so gorgous...I love it! Yay Wanda for blessing you this way. I can't wait to come to come to Austin to see it live!

That is just the coolest thing ever. How kind. That totally proves my theory that knowing people over the internet is not as cold and senseless as some would have it.

I think sitting down for a chat with Wanda would be somewhat like sitting down with one of the Hawkins sisters or Muzz . . comfy, warm, hilarious and endearing all the same time. What a blessing, and what a BEAUTIFUL picture! I think sweet thoughtful gifts like that make things on your wall so much more special . .
