"Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." ~ Mother Theresa

Seven things you may not know about me:

1. My favorite pie is lime chiffon.

2. I adore raspberry sherbet.

3. Waterlilies should be in every garden, I believe, yet, I don't have any, yet.

4. Summer must have cotton candy in there somewhere.

5. I find four-leaf clovers often and have all my life.

6. I can cook beautifully for friends, but, mess-up all the time in everyday cooking.

7. I have absurd preferences on art pencil selection (HB, 2B, H) depending on what the subject will be that I am about to draw.

Bonus information that you may not know about me! I love to watch and hear people type.

Links as a gift to you, all my readers, to try someplace new.

Bella at The Art of Living Beautifully has presented some lovely places with this blog award! I happen to be one of them! So, rather than choose seven favorite blogs, or try to show you say, seven new blogs I have happened upon or another lovely option, I thought to myself, what if I just gave you all a treat!!! I am showing you a diverse group of artists for your gift. They really have exquisite thought provoking art and personalities, not all bloggers, but they share this magical place within the "computer sharing" realm.

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you Bella for putting my blog as a haven for you to visit. It gives me great joy to know this. I celebrate you with this gorgeous Sulamith Wulfing painting for the angel seems to be giving her something, if not just an embrace. You are an angel for sharing your kindness with me.

I love that No. 1 + 2 are your favorite colours also.
Have a wonderful day!

Bella said...

I just adore your list! And the painting is beautiful - such a lovely sentiment. Thank you so much for your kind words. And I love that you decided to share some artists we could discover - what a fabulous idea! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

P.S. I love that you shared a Sulamith Wulfing painting - I first learned of her work in a Stevie Nicks interview, oddly enough. :) Her work is so ethereal, which is how I think of your blog.

Good morning Amy dear,

I see you love the lighter delights such as lemon chiffon and raspberry; so do I! I just remember the mild flavor of my mother's lemon curd made from our own lemon tree and to this day, I enjoy my raspberries in all forms. Light and lovely, fresh and simple, the hues of nature and the purity of love and friendship will always be pleasing to my palate and be a part of my artist's color palate. You are an inspiration! Anita

Silke said...

I had to laugh at your pencil preferences, dear Amy - they remind me of taking geometry in high school, a subject I loved! Wonderful list of things to find out about you!! And a wonderful list of new beauty to check out. I'll have to do that when I have quiet moment. You are a shining star!! Much love, Silke

Sheila said...

Thank you for sharing these lovely places! And what a great list. I always love knowing these little tidbits about others; across the distance, it helps to fill the gaps. AND I too find 4 leaf clovers often :-) It makes me so happy to discover one hidden among the "usual" clover. You/your blog are like a 4 leaf clover to me! Have a wonderful day...Sheila
