Priceless

Notice anything new in my office? 
Probably not since 99.99% of you have never actually been in my office, but maybe you'll spot it anyway. 


I wrote about Kay Vincent's priceless scherenschnitte rendering of my life a few weeks ago,
and the original showed up in my mailbox over the weekend.


Holy stinkin' moly. As magnificent as I knew it would be, it's even more magnificent in person.
I put it in one of those floating frame things. I love how the shadows make it three dimensional.



All my favorite things in life, right there in one place for me to look at.
It's a wonder this post even got written – I still can't take my eyes off it.
Thank you, Kay. Your artistry will be forever treasured.

  19. I was hoping that this wonderous piece of art would end up where it belonged with you. It not only is a gorgeous piece but is also a tribute to all that is 7MSN and to you and how much you inspire other folks. Happy Day dear lady, Oma Linda
