I'm rich

Look what came in the mail from the Netherlands! Marianne sent me all this beautiful money from different countries to use in my collages. Some from China, Mexico, Romaniei, Budapest, Qatar, Tanzania and more. The colors and pictures on the money are wonderful. Wow.

Coins too.

And this sweet post card. Doesn't this look like kids from the 50's?

Most wonderful of all is an original Marianne hand-painted mandala which she called a "Suki-Wabi-Sabi" mandala. My studio walls are just humming now with my Giggles art from Forever Young and now my mandala from Marianne. Thank you dear blog friends. For being so kind and generous and creative. You are inspirations.



And on her blog, Marianne has created an award for everyone. Visit her blog to pick up your copy. Just right click on the icon, save it to your desktop. Then upload to your blog. Thank you thank you again dear blog friends for hanging in there as I rested and renewed. I am grateful for your kind words and thoughts. Love, Suki

Oh you dog, I'm jealous ! I love that money....oh the fun stuff I could do with that !

I also love the zinnia photo in your sidebar. My love for zinnias comes from memories of my grandmother.

Fun post. Hope all is well with you.

Kim I agree so much. I am truely rich with loved ones among my relatives and friends. That's the richest richness of all. I can't wait to use the money. So lovely. You have a great weekend too, Kim.

Babs,Isnt that money the greatest. Marianne travels a lot, I travel not at all. So I am lucky she collected these bills from her many travels and shared them with me so I can travel vicariously.

human being, I too am so rich to have you as my friend. You always say such kind things. The mandala is wonderful isnt it. I can feel myself regaining energy just from looking at it and having it in this room. Love, Suki

Paula, I dont know why I love zinnias but I do. My gram loved petunias and I planted those in my garden too. Do you make collages Paula: Re: your saying you'd love that sort of thing? Have a great weekend.

How fun that must have been to open your mail to all these gifts.
I bet you make wonderful art using them too. How lovely of Marianne to make you a Mandala. It is lovely. I loved her video of the process of the one she made for FY.
Very artistic woman...we are all lucky to have her in our midst.
Have fun with all of it. And yes I agree, those kids on the post cards are either 1940 or 1950's kids.

ha ha what an unusual thing to post, wonder what the royal mail would've thought of that?
and this mandala, it is superb, we are rich indeed- in our blogging friends, i can feel the love flowing all around us.
