I remember the morning like it was yesterday. We were all gathered around the tree and of course I had the most gifts! Yes it’s true I was the spoiled one. I wasn’t the “spoiled brat” but I was the “spoiled princess”. I had waited all day for Santa to come and it was finally here. So it was my turn to open my gifts and I won’t ever forget this moment. With so much excitement I opened a medium sized box. It was heavy and wrapped in the prettiest gold paper I had ever seen with a beautiful red bow. Santa must of had his best elf wrap my gift. I heard music and when I pulled my gift out it was a water globe. Inside the globe was a beautiful woman with a pretty yellow and pink dress. She had similarities of Bell from Beauty and the Beast. The globe played the song “I hope you dance” by Lee Ann Womack. I loved it!
It’s been several years since I got that gift, but one day as I was working in the prepress room. Peggy Weiss brought in one of her newest pieces, Twirling. It’s of a pretty woman twirling in her yellow and pink dress. All I could think of was my childhood memory of my water globe. I was so deeply in love with this piece that Peggy Weiss had created that I had to get one for myself.
It hangs in the bedroom of my new sweet little girl, Eliana. I hope that this picture brings her joy like it brought me.
It amazes me how these pieces that different artists bring in can remind me of memories that I will cherish forever. Did you ever run across an art piece of ours that reminded you of something when you where a child? If I were you I would look at ALL of our art pieces and you will be amazed of how one of them can bring back a memory. So try it, and why dont you tell us about it. We would love to hear.
