Thank you for the award Sandy, and for the kind words. I´m especially glad that it was a drawing from the farm that "put me over the top".
Maybe because it´s close to my heart and it shows. Well, thanks a lot anyway!

Sandy, thank-you for visiting my blog and for the award! How much fun is that! I love cruising around looking at other art (and craft, and cooking) blogs. Much more so than actually producing and posting much of my own. I swear I will organize my thoughts and post a response...sOOn. Thanks again.
