I've been humming the "Sound of Music" song about brown paper packages tied up in string because I received one yesterday from the very talented Amariah Rauscher. I was lucky enough to win her April Giveaway (Thanks to Izzy at Stone Spirit who turned me on to the opportunity).
One of my vivid memories as a kid is of my mother singing the song "Favorite Things" every time she saw the UPS truck driving down our rural street in Ohio-- a sight that was not all that common. So when the manila envelope from Amariah arrived I was surprised and so happy to find this inside.....
To be honest, I actually held off all day long opening her generous gift because it was so lovely and so filled with memories that I seriously thought of sending it directly to my Mom without disturbing the wrapping. But, like the little kid I used to be, my curiosity got the better of me and I opened it, oh so carefully, and discovered this gorgeous print....
A million thanks to Amariah. You put a smile on my face and I'll think of you each time I look at your beautiful artwork.

Photo Credit Amariah Rauscher - This is a 5" x 7" print of her drawing "It's a Small Thing." It is a reproduction of her original charcoal and watercolor drawing. You can have one too and see more of Amariah's artwork at her Esty Store HERE! And WOW, it's on sale until June 1st!
So on this Mother's Day, and in honor of my Mom and the talented Amariah, I leave you with this contemporary rendition of a favorite song.
Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there.
What are your "favorite things"?
