Color us.....

FLABBERGASTED: surprised greatly; astonished


Our of the clear blue sky mom was surprised greatly when she 
went to the mailbox last Thursday. She had a package from our
furiend Ramona...in Mississippi.  
Lo and behold when she opened it she saw this 
lovely and handy caddy for her coloring books and pencils.


 Hey Mom I think Putter Jean, Ramona's kitty,  left me a bit of smell mail right here.
Ramona originally made herself a caddy for storing all her polymer clay instruments, then 
she thought it would also work for her friends who color!!
Mom was one of the most lucky friends to receive one.

Mom was over the moon gleeful.  She has two sets of pencils and 2 coloring books
One set of the pencils came in a most aggravating hard plastic container (below) that would not say open!!  Mom tried to get me to sit on it  to keep it open...

Now all the pencils are in one convenient place!!
 Mom jumped on the Coloring band wagon in December when Sis and BIL gave her
a coloring book and pencils.  In January mom's bestie, Anita,  gave her the Wild
Kingdom coloring book for her birthday.
   
 Ramona is a most talented friend.  Her artistic skills are limitless.
A year or so ago Mom commissioned Ramona to make a mosaic of Moi and asked if
she could include dogwood flowers and a ruby-throated humming bird....
This is the result of that request
Broken Bit Mosaics is the name of her blog...you can visit it by clicking here


 RAMONA,  A GREAT BIG THANK YOU FOR FOR THIS lovely surprise...
NOW I WON'T HEAR ANY MORE  suggestions that I should sit on the pencil container!!
You know what they say, 'when mama is happy, everybuddy is happy"!
Sincerely Madi(son) D happy Cat

  2. What a great gift! I sent my sister a Harry Potter colouring book the other day, since she loves Harry Potter. Isn't it great how colouring is okay for adults now?

    That mosaic is fantastic. I love how Madi looks at the birdy.

  23. How wonderful to meet a Princess Leah lookalike - Princess is very pretty. We have a couple of King Charles Cavaliers in our neighborhood and they are all very nice.

    Mom is trying her human paws at coloring too, but she finds it very frustrating when she can't get the shading right. She needs to take lessons from Ms. Lynn at Sketching with Dogs.

    Mom has always admired the mosaic work done by your friend - expquisite.

  30. Gosh, that mosaic is absolutely beautiful! Love the colors and of course, your pretty face.

    My mom gave Brian (my husband) a coloring book like this for Christmas - I kid you not. She read that coloring was good for stress reduction. So, now we color together as a family after dinner. LOL

  33. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
