surprise for me, surprise for you
what a lucky girl am i! yesterday, my mailbox was getting rather heavy, so i rested on a grassy knoll and took a peek inside. as i opened it, out burst a fountain of many colored butterflies, rainbow game counters, chess pieces, laughing cutlery, tiny chairs and tables, and flying plates covered with exotic fruit. oh, sorry - my mind drifted there momentarily to a nutty old poem-song by the nutty old dukes of stratosphear, so let me try again. as i opened it, out burst a big envelope of color and goodness from thereza of tiny red design in england, delivered to kansas by the royal mail itself. my girls and i had a great afternoon going through the layers of goodies - a tiny red envelope that really was tiny and red, keychains, little bookmarks, notes, a postcard from her el justiciero exhibition, beautiful prints - they really did seem like many colored butterflies and flying plates covered with exotic fruit. thank you, T!
her generosity reminded me that i promised a giveaway two months ago, and i haven't done it yet, so let's do one now. leave a comment for me here before next wednesday, september 2, and i'll draw two winners for a little assemblage of groovy doodle goods - notecards, wine tags, and whatever else comes into my head before then.
now, off to the famous sunflower fields - the weather isn't cooperating with the best light this afternoon, but kansas is known for its sunflowers and i don't want to miss them at their peak. if you don't hear from me, send a dispatch team - i'm probably lost somewhere around tonganoxie.
