The Lonely Queen....



...Finally has her KING!! I received him via Fe*d-Ex yesterday, and was QUITE surprised by Andy!! It seems as if he arranged for the King to be painted and delivered here, so that the fair queen would not be lonely anymore. She has held court alone above our bar for nigh upon a year now, and I am quite sure she is more than pleased at having met her match. Can't wait to get him properly framed and for the pair of them to reign justly and fairly over our little kitchen. Thanks so much, ANDY! You are quite the sneaky one!
In case you are curious, they are Walter*Anderson, (watercolor prints of his hand painted by local artists) and they are quite popular here in our neck of the woods! Mr. Anderson was a renowned artist from Mississippi, and these prints can be ordered from the museum shop- they are SUCH fun! Any other fans out there? I simply adore his work!

Happy Thursday and
Much Love,

What a wonderful surprise. I think it's great that even after years of marriage husbands can still manage to do such wonderful, thoughtful, AND romantic things, even sweep us off our feet;) I know you will treasure it.

My friend, a principal, had the entire alphabet around her office. The kids loved it! Happy Holidays!

Hi, Jennifer -- I was reading through your blog after taking the holiday tour and Walter Anderson's name jumped out at me. The curator of his museum is a friend and former professor of mine! Small world! :)
