    ooh – I want Starry Night beads! Years ago my kids and I went to one of those ‘paint your own ceramics’ stores and my son made me a mug with his version of Starry Night – it’s still one of my treasures.

    Thanks for the links!

    Hey there Dave. There is an award waiting for you at my blog. LOL! It is something people pass on to each other. We are supposed to give this award to people who encourage us by leaving comments on our blogs. And since I was supposed to pass this on to 5 people, I immediately thought of you, because your comments at my blog are always so encouraging! You don’t need to post all this on your blog, even though the rules of the award say so. I am posting this message here just to let you know that I really appreciate your support. That’s all. 🙂
