A "Best We Can Do" THANK-YOU!

   I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to everyone who stopped by The Best We Can Do Sale last nite! It was very exciting and a sell-out for everyone. It amazes me how quickly our loyal customers will respond during these sales! However can someone see it all in minutes and send an email? I have to say, it must be something in the genes of the collector! Well, bless them all for their continued support.
   In the previous post, I described my inspiration for our Nursery Rhyme Sale. Below, you will find the end results.

   Please enjoy and until next time... Best Wishes!

March 30th Best We Can Do websale

  Where, oh where, is this year disappearing? It's nearly a third over, but on the bright side, something new and exciting is on it's way. Whatever could that be? Why of course, it's the latest Best We Can Do artist group websale! My work, along it the magical offerings of Lori Ann Corelis, Paul Gordon, Nicol Sayre, Scott Smith, and Roberta Taylor will soon be online for your enjoyment and consideration. Please come to our new and improved site (click link in the right margin) on March 30th at 8:00pm est and let us "tuck you in with a nursey rhyme..."

  Above you will find the cover of the little book in which I found most of my inspiration. It was published by Thomas Nelson and Sons in 1928. The rhymes I chose to recreate...

"Ding, dong, bell, Pussy's in the well.
Who put her in? Little Tommy Green.
Who pulled her out? Little Tommy Trout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor Pussy Cat."

"Little Betty Blue
Has lost her holiday shoe,
Give her another
To match the other,
And then she will walk in two."

"Peter-Peter, Pumpkin-eater
Had a wife, he couldn't keep her.
He placed her in a pumpkin-shell,
And there he kept her very well."

Remember... March 30th... Best Wishes!
