A Book and a Baby Crow!

Hello everyone,
Well, I've been so lucky lately - I'm thinking I should play the lottery! I won two blog giveaways that I really, really love! The first is an ACEO painting from Stacy of MagicLoveCrow. What's really cool about this is that I collect Stacy's "baby crow" paintings, so I was so excited I won! She puts so much detail in her paintings and I find they always make me smile and bring joy to my day when I look at them. Stacy paints all kinds of crows - adults as well as babies :)

 
 
...and look at the adorable card she sent with it! You can see more of Stacy's paintings and cards on her blog HERE and in her Etsy Shop HERE. Thank you, Stacy!!
 
 
  
The second giveaway I won was this beautiful book, "I'll Never Be French" by Mark Greenside from Suzanne of French Heart. The book is even signed by the author! From inside the cover, it reads "When Mark Greenside, a native New Yorker living in California doubting (not-as-trusting-as) Thomas, downwardly mobile, political lefty, writer and lifelong skeptic - is dragged by his girlfriend to a tiny Celtic village in Brittany, at the westernmost edge of France, in Finistere, the "end of the world," his life began to change. In a playful, headlong style, and with enormous affection for the Bretons, Greenside tells how he makes a life for himself in a country where he doesn't speak the language or know how things are done."
 
  
I can't wait to read it! I'll be writing a review after I've read it. Thanks, Suzanne! You can visit Suzanne's blog, French Heart HERE.
 
That's all for now, so until next time,
Cindy
