I am grateful today because I have some new art in my living room, and especially grateful because it was painted by our lovely friend Jenny Matlock who blogs at . . . off on my tangent. Jenny paints and sells cool signs in her etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/OffonMyTangent?ref=em.
Here's an example of her work:
She has lots of interesting stuff, each piece unique, but I wanted something that was special to me. So I asked Jenny if she did custom work. She replied in the affirmative, and before long I had one of my favorite movie lines in white letters on a red background.
Annie Hall (Diane Keaton), in the eponymous movie, says, "la-di-da, la-di-da, la la." May not mean much to you, but it kind of expresses my philosophy about life; and I've said it many times. You can ask my kids.
Here's a closeup of my sign, custom painted especially for me by Jenny Matlock, hanging in my living room:
And here's the entire corner where it hangs:
Jenny sent the sign, which was very reasonably priced, wrapped in adorable paper. I felt as if I were receiving a gift. And I was! She also sent a cute card with a very sweet note, and a mint tea bag. I feel positively spoiled.
Jenny Matlock, blogger and artist extraordinaire, I AM GRATEFUL FOR YOU!
Infinities of love,
