Sorry to be so quiet but the family and I took a much needed vacation last week to Disneyland. Yay, what a wonderful time we had! I spent 7 years of my childhood living in California and Disneyland was my favorite place in the world. It still is. And what a treat to take my own children there for the first time and see them have such a great time.
I won't bore you with family photos but I will share with you one of the highlights of the trip for me. Hubby surprised me with an early Christmas gift when we visited the watch shop on "Main Street".
I adore Eeyore and fell in love with this the minute I saw it.
What is most exciting , when you purchase your time piece you also receive the original artwork used to make your watch.
Mine was created by artist, Dave Smith. It is watercolor on hot press paper. I love that you can see the pencil marks underneath the paint. This will soon be framed and hanging in my studio! Try to find Smiths' signature. See it? (click image to enlarge)
Unfortunately I missed meeting Dave but took a picture of Eric Scales who was working on a lovely Daisy duck illustration. I could have sat and watched him work for hours.
I will cherish my eeyore watch for years to come!
