After all the excitement of Celebrate Oz and dust has settled.....literally here at Casa de Cuckoo. I've had a chance to take a breath and sit back and reflect on the wonderfulness of the past month.
I feel so privileged to be a part of a group of bloggie darlings that support one another and come together for fun and love. CO was fabulous even if I did have some silly moments. I feel a little guilty having won two of the giveaways....but not guilty enough to say nope. I won the beautiful cushion from Ms. Kim who borrowed Ye Olde Crones Gazette and I also won The Angry Gnomes, Witch hunter Toto.
I also received some Easter goodies and have had fun decorating for spring. (last post)
But I must tell you about the title. It's significant in two ways. First the Lavender Farms Rescue received a winning bid of over $300 for their rescue and even more in the donations from all of you my converted donkey lovers. So I was on a huge old high. I've sold lots of artwork in the past but never for more than $300.00 and I am thrilled that I could help in my small way to raise funds for the beautiful long ears of LVR and the other animals as well.
Then my long lost love child in Sweden (not really but it's my feeling about her), Ms. Becky from The Vintage Fairytales, did her magic photography thing. She has a friend Diane Foster from Tinkering by the Sea, who makes these incredible papier mache donkeys. They met each other, I think, at a Julie Arkell seminar in France. I am in love with the sweet little cutie pies with the long ears. But anyway back on subject. The Skating Monkey at Vintage Fairytales said that "Donkey is the new black" and since he is in the know with all things arty and fashion forward in Europe........I'm all in with this statement.
So now that CO is in the rear view mirror and I can focus on a new project, besides my writing and creating for Ms. Magaly's "Witches in fiction - to the bone" blog extravaganza starting April 1-13. I intend to get back to making my wool donkeys and sharing them with you. Could be that they will come in a rainbow of colors and be a little quirky (oh no surely not).
Thanks lovelies for making me a better me every time we get together, Smooches and Squoozes, Oma Linda
