In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Dancing in the Moonlight

 A few weeks ago I was perusing a blog and I saw the cutest painting.  It was an itty bitty painting.  It reminded me of that song "Dancing in the Moonlight".  So romantic.
I don't even remember how I found this blog, or maybe she found me first, who knows!
But I love Melody Lorraine's blog.  Click here and check it out.
  It was during the time I was really busy and stressed, 
commenting little, not blogging at all, but still perusing blogs.  
Anyway, I wanted that picture, so I asked her if it was for sale.
After e-maling back and forth, I sent her a check and I got this in the mail yesterday.
 First of all, check out the outside of the envelope...above...with a flower and a honey bee on it.  Caauuute!
 Who wouldn't be all excited to get a package like that in the mail!
And look at all of these goodies inside! I only ordered a painting and I got all of this!!

 This bookmark is adorable!  I love this style...reminds me of Beatrix Potter!
 This is a handmade card and she took the time to write a note inside.  When she is famous...I'll have a handwritten note!  
 When I sent her the check for the painting, I quickly enclosed it in an envelope along with an old ledger book I had that was falling apart and popped it in the mail.  That's it.  No cute notes or little odds and ends.  Sorry Melody. 
I knew she liked old ledger papers and she had an old ledger book from her grandmother.  My sale was going to be the first one she wrote in the ledger book!

Would you just look what she made out of the ledger paper.  It's actually long.You can see a better picture of how long it is in the photo above.  I just can't get a good pic of it with my little point and shoot camera.


It's actually twice as long as folds out.

This little painting is adorable.  I am going to frame all of this stuff!

   There were also these cute little stickers enclosed!

And here we go! The reason for this know how you just see something and you just love it instantly.   
Me and my Shug dancing in the moonlight on our new property. 

 Love it!

 PS - Note to the Vintage Folk Painter, I think you and her look like you have a lot in common.  Different style of painting I think, but a like for some of the same artists.

PPS - I noticed where Mel from Day to Day blog posted the final ripple a long post.  But I just got this one finished, so I'll post my ripple along next, in a couple of days.  Please check back for ripple progress.  It's coming along.

I went back through your previous was pretty scary wasn't it? I hate that floods have wrecked the lifes of so many. All my family was lucky to stay dry. thank you for keeping your bees high and dry. I know that they are important for our futures.
