It's The Little Things That Make Me Happy!

Nothing brightens up my day more than when new paintings arrive at the shop! It's just the perfect thing to perk me up! Especially when its great art and especially when it's something new and different!

We haven't ever had these before and I'm so excited about them! They are tiny, but wow….they make a huge impact!

It all started when I was trying to think of the perfect graduation gift for a very dear young lady! She happens to be my youngest son's girlfriend and she happens to LOVE art!
 (and I'm praying that she doesn't read this and that no one spoils my surprise!)

 I had seen some of Lauren's small paintings on her website and immediately fell in love!

So, I picked up the phone and called her and now here they are! They arrived this afternoon and I for one could not be happier! I will be wrapping away later tonight and then tomorrow…they will be on display at Mulberry Heights Antiques!

See if you can guess which painting I originally "commissioned" Lauren to do for sweet Sarah!
Here we have 5 wonderful works of art…..

And now, we are down to 4! Not to worry….Lauren will send more as she is also working on some large florals since we sold the last one we had today! 
Like I've always said…"It's truly the little things in life that make me the happiest!" In this case, it's little works of beautiful art!
Have a wonderful weekend!
