Stitchy Gift Received & Photo Hunt

Back in March I had a giveaway on my blog, well two actually.  It was to celebrate my Birthday and 1,501st post.  I'm waiting for the second gift to arrive, its got a long way to go but one of the two has made it to its destination.

From my Arizona Adventures: Annette on the left, me and Bette on the right

Bette, who I had the joy to meet in Arizona back in March (honestly, the random number generator picked her it was fate!).  Bette and I have also been reading each others blogs for years so it was so nice to meet!

Its Saturday, so its PhotoHunt Time!  This week's theme is : Painted


One day back in the spring when I arrived at the Dojang to teach Taekwon-Do that evening I spotted this uniquely painted car in the strip mall's parking lot!  I've never seen this car again!

How fun to meet a fellow blogger.
You would know it if you saw that car again.

Love the little pillow you made for your giveaway!!! In your picture with Annette and Bette are you in front of a Cracker Barrel? It looks like it! lol...Oh hey! there's my car! Richard? Thats my dad. I wondered where it ended up! Just kidding! LOL...You'd think a car painted like that would be like a VW Bug or a VW van, but that looks like a modern Volvo...very odd!

Cute pillow Dani!

Love the sentiment on the pillow. It is SO right.

What a whacky car. I'm guessing it belongs to someone named Richard. Or, at least, Richard gets to RIDE in the car. LOL

Lovely pillow!
That car is fabulous, I drive a "distinctive" car myself, but that one is amazing. Richard must be quite a confident guy
