A Surprise in the Mail

Yesterday I received the sweetest little surprise in the mail. Peggy of peggyapl seeds sent me an ATC that she made - can you see what it is?


It is the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. She was here back in the summer, posted a photo of it on her blog and asked where she was. Well, living so close to San Francisco and having a kid who loves to visit the Exploratorium (that is housed in the Palace of Fine Arts) it was not a big stretch for me. As a thank you for posting the right answer, Peggy sent me this ATC, made by her.

She lives in the Philippines and is an amazing painter. Whenever I visit her blog - usually on a Wednesday since she also belongs to the WOYWW-crowd - a new beautiful painting sits on her desk. Well - hop on over to her place and see for yourself!

this is such a beautiful drawing/painting! Is it [pastel? You are so lucky Carola...what a wonderful gift. Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my blog this week...Thing shave been unusually hectic over here...on tues. evening, Tara came down with a horrible fever. She is doing much better now-still a little sick...but everything pretty much gets put on the back burner when the little ones are sick.

OOOo, I knew where it was! I was just there this summer - hubby and I were there for 6 weeks. It was great. Beautiful painting she did!!

Beautiful! I've seen it in person and she certainly caught the spirit of the building.

My you are a lucky girl. I love San Francisco and this is such an iconic image. If you go into the city frequently then you probably saw the wonderful show at the De Young on the Impressionists. Wasn't it wonderful? I want to come up and see the second part later this year.
...now, I must go over and see Peggy.(-:
