Portland Art Collective and Giveway Winner!
I am so sorry for the delayed announcement of the giveaway winner! My youngest son had surgery last week and we have been spending time with him as he heals and helping him get back to school. He is doing much better this week and I am busy getting caught up on life and the holidays! Congrats to Stephanie at Whispering Creek House as the winner of the art Blessing Givesaway. Please take a moment to visit Stephanie's beautiful blog. She has such a lovely spirit for heart, art and home!
I had a much needed getaway for the day with a sweet friend of mine this past weekend. We bundled up with Mochas and Lattes in hand and visited an adorable part of town called Multnomah Village in Portland and strolled through the Portland Art Collective Holiday Gift Show. It was a mixed media artist dream, wonderfully done with an incredible collection of diverse work. I plan to make it an annual trip for sure! Be sure to take a peek at this artist group's blog for more pics of this beautiful event!
I have such a passion for collecting one-of-a-kind art dolls and was thrilled to come home with this beautiful piece by artist Tammy Vail. I also couldn't resist this sweet, antique metal sign that says "The world is waiting to hear your story".
