My lucky day

Today is October 1st, my daughter's first birthday. It was a lucky day a year ago when she came a month early, yet with no complications from being a preemie. And it is a lucky day again this year because I have won a pair of drawings from deborah at A Muse in Kansas that I was really hoping to win!

Deborah is a fantastic artist, I especially love her interpretations of Kansas and Vermont landscapes. She ran a contest last month and the winner received these, two original pen and ink drawings that I admired the minute she posted them a few months ago. I'm very excited and can't wait to frame them! If you have a minute check out her art, you won't be disappointed.


  1. How exciting! Congratulations.

  2. Well, two things: congratulations on winning those beautiful drawings, and happy birthday, little one (whose name is escaping me right now).

  3. Funky art! Congrats and Happy Birth day to both of you.

  4. Kate that is sooo creative! Congratulations and I also want to thank you for your concern, another typhoon is on the way and it's gonna hit us in a few hours so I am asking for more prayers that it would not devastate us more.


  5. Thanks everyone! It really was a great day! Lizzie made a mess of cake and we all had a lot of laughs and giggles and am looking forward to hanging the drawings on our walls. AL, again, I'm thinking of your with the approaching storm, hopefully some of my luck will wash your way.

    Thanks for visiting! -kate

  6. thanks cookie for the plug on your blog!

    thanks! deb

  7. Those are beautiful, congratulations on your win. Also a slightly belated Happy Birthday to Lizzie.
