haha, Friday Favorites re-run (from just last week) because somehow this post got deleted.  

I purchased this painting by Emily Rickard and it arrived this week. I’m in love, it just makes me so happy to look at.

If you haven’t visited the machine, it is treasure for this area, and I’d encourage you to check it out.
