For me...???

 Just LOOK at what was delivered to me this week...

 Aren't they just beeeeeeautiful???

As I opened the gate to the bell, I was greeted by an eager Delivery Man peering from behind this gorgeous bouquet!
Since this is not an occurrence I am used to, as I scratched my head I could only imagine that he had come to the wrong house!

'Are you sure they're for me???' I asked, taking one step back as he proceeded to pass them in my direction.
He looked at me, quizzically... 'You are Sandra?' He said.
'Yes!' I squeaked! In an unexpectedly ridiculous voice.
Thrusting the bouquet forth again, he replied, 'Then, yes madam, they are most definitely for you!'

It's been a very long time since I have had flowers delivered to my door. 
I quickly opened the little card which was peeking through the foliage. Who could they possibly be from?  

Inside the card, read...

'Dear Sandra. 
Thank you so much for the lovely painting of Jack. 
We all absolutely love it! 
Love from Julie, Steve and Eleanor xxx 
P.S. You're a star!'

How lovely to receive such warm thanks for a painting! 

Since there are some rather gorgeous purple blooms within the arrangement, I think they sit just beautifully in my purple kitchen, don't you?

It's so lovely to know that another of my paintings will be treasured!

I'm sorry that I haven't posted any art for you today. I must admit to going through a bit of a dry spell of late. This will quickly pass and I will be back on track shortly.

Meanwhile, I have a very special post coming up this Sunday, so be sure to pop back then!!
