Saturday:) Something Special

23 Jun

“I usually don’t just give a gift. I try to make something special that comes from my hands and my heart.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

***************************

Last Monday was Jerry’s birthday, and I wanted to paint a couple of martini glasses for him. He collects martini glasses. But, to come up with something special and not girlie. I like to paint roses and bluebonnets. He also collects African art, so I researched some African art paintings and found just the right thing.

The variegated background and trees were easy, but that darn little giraffe was a bit tricky. But they came out ok.

I presented Jerry with his gift on Monday night when our Single Mingle group met for dinner. Miss Pat baked 3 pecan pies for the occasion,

Jerry appreciated the fuss for his birthday. When he got home, he proudly displayed his gift. I didn’t realize how perfectly it matched his decor.

A special gift for a special friend. Homemade is always the best.
