So if you read my last post you would know I took part in a mail art exchange recently. Well my return mail art from the fantabulous Mindy Lacefield has arrived and boy do I LOVE it.
I just can’t tell you how exciting it was to see the beautifully decorated envelope sitting in my letter box. I knew instantly my little treasure had arrived (this little burst of sunshine literally leapt out from amongst boring old bills in their boring white envelopes). I couldn’t wait to open it.
I’ve been a huge admirer of Mindy’s amazing work for some time now. I just love her style. I was so excited, much like as a youngster (a looooong time ago) when I’d get mail from my pen pal. I’d run off to a quiet corner to savour the moment and pore over every little detail. I sat down, made myself a cup of tea and gently pried it open. It did not disappoint. Here is my little treasure.
Isn’t it amazing?? I really adore everything about it and am so thrilled to have an artwork in my house by such a talented, kind and amazebubbles artist like Mindy. You can read more about Mindy on her blog Tim’s Sally or check out her Etsy Store to get your hands on your own gorgeous artwork by this talented lady.
A bit of mindless trivia for you. I am a HUGE fan of Drew Barrymore. I’ve seen all of her movies (even the not so fabulous ones) and I just love her to bits. Anyway I was pretty impressed to see that Mindy recently sold one of her paintings to the Hollywood actress Ginnifer Goodwin (read all about it here). Now Ginnifer was in “He’s Just Not That Into You” with Drew so I figure a bonus to having this gorgeous little work of art by Mindy is that it also works out to be just 3 degrees of separation between me and Drew. Hahaha. I know, I’m a bit sad and have way too much time on my hands to think of such things but it’s what I do. Hahaha. Love it!!! Oh and I actually blogged before Xmas YAY!!!
