The best feeling...


I wanted to send out a huge thank you to Dawn the-feathered-nest.blogspot.com/ for sending me this "Nice Matters" Award. What a nice thing to do.
I once was at a Folk art show at the William and Mary college in Williamsburg Virginia. It was the best show I had ever been to and then I was asked to do the show myself and I was honored and grateful. Well I did the show for about 6 or 7 years and loved it even more, and more each year. But there came a time the promoters decided the show had to end and It was bittersweet for me cause I never wanted it to end, but glad it went out on a high note. At the end, it was still the best folk art show I had ever been to.
Anyway, One year I was walking around taking a break from my booth (shopping) and over heard a couple ladies chatting about one of the newer vender's. As I shopped I couldn't help over hearing all the kind things they were saying about this new doll artist and her beautiful work, and how sweet she was and funny too. I thought it was nice to hear two people chatting about something nice about someone, rather than gossip and such. Well, I finished looking and started on my way to the next booth and walked in front of these two kind ladies and again over heard one say to the other, "Oh that's her, (pointing at me) she is so nice, and I love her dolls" I looked up and realized it was me they were chatting about and thought "oh wow". I don't think they knew I had over heard anything and well, I just gave them a smile and a wink and went on my way.
I just thought to myself, what a great feeling over hearing something nice about one's self. I learned how to be an even better person that day. A kind thing said is good for the soul, for who ever says it and who it is said about. I have chatted with so many sweet people here and just feel so welcome. Thanks for all who have visited On a Wing and A Prayer. Thanks for the kind words, inspiration, and sharing your art for all to see.
And Thank you Dawn for bringing back this sweet memory for me. You are so Nice, and nice really does matter...
I'd like to send this same award out to just a few of the sweetest people I know.

You angel, I'm sorry I failed to list your name but added you to my list of sweet nominators...I do think I'm quite sappy sometimes in my blog ~ but this world is filled with so much anger, hate, ugliness and sadness. I revel in sappiness and sweetness!!! My husband sometimes says I live in la-la-land. I tell him, well you should come on over and visit me ~ it's a great place to be!!! xxoo, Dawn

Becky, Years ago I did the Williamsburg show. I was a friend of Sharon Pierce and was living in Norfolk at the time so it was easy. Of course, I have traveled far to a good show.I especially love your mermaids. I am in the thought process and gathering part of doing my mermaid line. I do not sew at all so really do appreciate those who do!
