I've got mail!

I'm down with a cold/flu bug and dragged my but to the mailbox...
Then, as I opened my compartment, there it was!
That big, golden stamp from the U.K!
I felt better already!
I had ordered something a while back off of etsy, but knowing it was coming from overseas,
I put it in the back drawer of my minds file cabinet.
It's return address was bla-bla -bla...Stoke-on-Trent.
Gotta love those U.K place names.
Anyway, here's what came in the post...
This lovely print of three of my favorite things:
Owls, foxes and knarly trees in the woods.
Such talent does this girl have!
Oh, her name you ask?
An extremely gifted illustrator who also keeps a lovely blog; here...
Of course, you have to see this print in real life to appreciate it, but I had to share it with you in this post.
She also sent along a lovely note card to say hello and hoped that the print made it safely...
Cheers, Valerie...arrived safe and sound.
Can't wait to put it in a vintage frame and hang it in the studio for inspiration!
