I think I'm giddy

I'm not sure about that because I don't recall ever having felt giddy before I'm pretty sure I'm feeling giddy now.  I got an email earlier today from the Dollhouse Hall of Fame with a picture of the display case that holds my work in the gift shop.  I tried to be cool.  I really did.  Being cool lasted for about three seconds before I was bouncing off the walls like Daffy Duck on crank!  Woooohoooo!   Woohoo!  Wooooooohhooooooooooooooooo!!  Yippeee!  Wow!  Wooooooooohooooooooooo!!!

Wanna see? The whole display case is filled with my minis.  All of it.  How cool is that?

This was excellent timing because it helped to pull me out of a blue funk where I've been stuck for a few days.  Seeing my work in a brick and mortar store for the first time and in such a nice display put the smile back on my face.   I was so happy that I headed back to the studio and finished this retro living room set. 

{grinning} Quite a different style from what you usually see from me, isn't it?  This was FUN!  The colors are so bright and cheery and the fabric is such a flashback that I couldn't help but have a good time.  The fabric will be familiar to anyone who ever embroidered their jeans or painted a VW bus.  Those big yellow and orange flowers were everywhere! 

Of course a living room like this has to have floor pillows.  {wink}  If you remember the flowers, you know why.  Sooner or later we were going to end up laying on the floor, listening to the music because it sounded better in the middle of the floor where you got the full effect of the speakers. 

Here's a close up so you can see the fabric better. The flowers are so cool and I even found a purple fabric for the pillows that makes them look as if they might have been made from faded purple denim.  Okay, a show of hands many of you just had a flashback????  Does anyone else have the urge to go make a batch of brownies?  

So that's been my day and I have to say that a happy day like this was desperately needed.  It lifted my spirits and brought me back to life again.  What would I do without minis?
