Curtain Call

What a wonderful day.
The evening was enchanted by attending the Gilbert High School Musical.
The friends from Gilbert joined the Gilpatrick's to support Maryam in a lead role, as a Narrator.
The students of Gilbert High did a spectacular job with the performance. The staging, costumes and presentation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Charm of a Musical was nothing short of brilliant!
Maryam, You Rock!


The Camel actually came into my neighborhood and brought me my first gift. It's beautiful. They will be in the center of the table on Sunday morning when we have our Ruhi study circle. Everyone attending will be able to enjoy their sweet perfume.
I'm off to the party now....
I will return to share the fun and frivolity!


Happy Ayyam-i-Ha Everyone!
The camel is in town spreading hospitality, cheer, good wishes, charity and gifts to all.

He come to my cul-de-sac!
Let's see what he has brought for us.....

More Swaps

Mystic Paper is all about vintage . There is a wonderful atmosphere in that store.
Jennifer and Kim are wonderful proprietors. They always make time to chat with you. Plus it 's full of the most extraordinary things! The collage trinket table has an amazing array of goodies.
I love to pop into the store during my lunch moment. (Well it seems like a moment!) because it's around the corner from my work place.
They host an ATC swap every month, the theme of the swap was "Tim Holtz" These are the wonderful treats that I brought home.

In the Mail Box Today

I just love my Postman. He brings me such great gifts from afar.

This little undersea gem was created by Carey. She created it with a little origami Koi. It is a new treasure in my ATC collection.

It's a wonderful thing to go to the mailbox to find such a wonderful gift.

P is for Pink Bling

Well here she is Lily the Pink in her "Pink Bling"
This is a my vision of a sweet friend, Debi, the inspiration for this little cutie.
Charming and warm, soft pink is the perfect color for a romantic date.
Pink is soft and delicate, It may also have a calming, soothing effect.
Pink Bling......... my ATC for the Tuesday Challenge.

Persian Rice

This is the Rice dish that I made tonight.
Yes, and we did fight over the bottom of the pot, a long standing tradition when eating Persian Rice. The potato was cooked perfectly, a nice golden brown.
It was a great birthday dinner.

Birthday Dinner

Happy Birthday Melissa.

I am so lucky... It is Melissa's Birthday, and she brought me a gift when she and Michelle came over to celebrate and have dinner. 2 ATC's that she has created for her upcoming swaps... I love the green eyed monster......& Sweeney Todd is totally "bloody good".

The dinner was delicious, too. We had a Persian rice served with chicken.

Saturday Live ATC Swap

"Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you." ~Oscar Wilde
The sharing of art is one of those real riches...for art is a portal to a much happier world.
It was a great day in Scottsdale today...... It wasn't the Parada Del Sol that made it great..
It was the Monthly ATC Swap at the Frenzy Stamper. The theme this month was Rock & Roll and the cards are really rocking.
