Birthday friend

I interrupt the snow pictures to show and tell about a birthday gift.

Many years ago I went to a craft painters show in Las Vegas with my friend Marci and her husband Rich. Rich would plant himself at a slot machine and Marci and I would wander around the show.

I'm always afraid to buy too much at the beginning, thinking that I would run out of money before I reached the end of the isles. By the time we get to the end, I'm too tired to go back and get what I saw at the beginning. The best part though is that we had three days of the show in our five day trip!! Yay!! I bought stuff, and I bought stuff, and I bought stuff. So did Marci! Any way, I saw this wine bottle stopper and thought it was really cute. I like a few cute things, but not many. Didn't know what to do with it since I didn't know anyone at the time that drank wine ... I got to know someone better and better (NO not that good!) and found out that he drank wine. So here 5 years later, I painted it for his birthday, which is today - Happy 72nd Birthday Don!!! Long tell and short show, huh?

I took it to him yesterday and he really liked it. He told me that he had a bunch of fancy stoppers, but none like this. I didn't think so - only I can do crazy-fun things like this.

Hope everyone has a happy day, no special occasion needed!

CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!! I love it and hope Don did too. I used to paint a lot but haven't done any in quite awhile now. You made my fingers itch for my paint brush. Love it!
