surprises in the postbox.

sorry it's been a few days everyone! i've been down visiting with my parents and then had a little holiday with some good friends. it was quite lovely to get away from responsibilities and everything...
but today we came back, to a slightly musty house and a chockers letterbox.
i quickly sorted through the bills and tax certificates, and found what i was hoping would be there... my postcard! all the way from hoboken, new jersey!




the sender was louise gale. lookee lookee at my postcard! isn't it loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeely? i love it.



AND i got a little surprise, a set of prints of her work! are they just gorgeous? and some very inspiring words there too!


i've popped them up on my dresser wall, along with all of my 'naked ladies' as my boyfriend calls them...
they're ready to inspire me to get up and get going!

thanks so much louise!
and thanks beth for organising everything! i'll definitely have to play along with creative swaps again :D



i still can't reveal mine, because i'm not sure if rikki has received it yet... maybe next time?

Oh, Louise's work is gorgeous. I met her a few months ago when I went to an art retreat in the US. She's an awesome woman.
