Queen of a whole freakin lot!!

My yummy friend Dana, who often puts lovely little suprises in my mail box, seems to be under the mistaken impression that I am going over and beyond when it comes to her boys, who by the way are AMAZING, so on her return trip from San Fran she brought me these two great prints that pretty much describe me to a tee!!

I love the "Yea me!" at the bottom of this one! It goes along well with my other post about being Awesome!!

This one is harder to read, but it is true...."there comes a time in the day that no matter what the question.....the answer is wine", yep, yep, yep. They are both from
I love surprise gifts, they are the very, very best!!

There are no coincidences???

Earlier this week on Pinterest, I spotted this most awesome, altered guitar, and pinned it. I don't play but it  was so awesome, I loved it, maybe one day I would find a guitar and do something like it! It's gorgeous, right?

Then yesterday I was googling around looking for stuff for my sale, in the junk, gypsy, cowgirl type theme, didn't find too much, till about three pages in this guitar pops up with a link to Etsy......could it be true? Could delicious, eye candy guitar actually be for sale? I clicked.....thinking, this is a really old link, no way it will still be there, but what if it is? And since we live with the slowest internet in the land, I really and truly had the time to think all of this stuff......finallly the page starts to open and lo and behold there she is! Still available and at a price I could totally afford. In my giddy excitement, I send the artist a note, how I'm in awe, and can't believe I get to have this, and how much I love her work, and blah, blah, blah......afterwards, I'm thinking WOW you freaky Etsy stalker. Then I quickly buy gorgeous Soul Guitar, Paypal, so the money is there instantly. What a great day.

But gets better!! I KNOW!!

This is the reply from my purchase:
You sent a payment of $XXX.XX USD to Shelly Boles (

Are you freaking kidding?? Her name is name is Shelley!!! I KNOW!!
Of course, I can't stand it one second and quickly send her another e-mail (this kind of harassment might cost me the guitar but I have to let her know!!):
"And then I get the confirmation and we are both named Shelley!! Sometimes stuff is just too freaky!! Can't wait to hear from you and see if you think this is amazing?? Shelley"
But she is a kindred spirit and replies:
Hi Shelly!
Im about to head out of town tomorrow or I might write a book here, but YES I think its amazing too. Love it in every way!! Can't wait to ship the guitar out to you! Of course I would love to do some wholesale for you...Ill email when I return home on Tuesday. Thanks so much for the emails. It just made my weekend fabulous!

WOW! WOW! I can't wait till I can really find out the whole story behind my guitar and tell her about being a renaissance soul and we have the same name and.........................................
