For my birthday I received a bit of money and I wanted to do something useful and lasting with it. When I give money, I hope that the person who receives it spends it on something he or she really wants but would not buy for himself/herself. A treat! A little luxury! A bit of decadence! So, that's what I try to do.
This year, I took my newfound wealth and went to Etsy! I browsed and browsed. There are so many wonderful artisans creating beautiful treasures. After much deliberation, I decided on an oil portrait of my son, Sascha. This time that I have with them at home, this special, precious, fleeting time is such a gift in itself and two-and-a-half is such a beautiful age. I just want to savour it forever and ever!
I sent Evelyn at Recircles9 a few photos of my beautiful little boy and she created a lovely portrait. I am so pleased with the result! It did turn out well!
