from melinda & chris

I don’t mean to single out one wedding gift over another, because the generosity of our friends left me completely stunned, but I wanted to share this one here because I think it is one that a lot of you will appreciate: an original watercolour of Oreo and Pony by Melinda Josie, expertly framed by her husband Chris. When I unwrapped it, I sat  in shock for a good two minutes. It is just incredible, especially in person (click it to view it large). My baaaaaaaabiessss!

ETA: Melinda posted about the painting on her blog!

  4. AMAZING!!! She is so good, I just love her work!

    One of my friends recently did a couple of portraits of my kitties for me, in proper Victorian bust style...I have a feeling you would like them. Here's my Mabel: http://www.etsy.com/listing/108396786/example-illustration-print-mabel
