Happy Birthday Dear PVE!



What's Jack up to? Jack's wishing all of you a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Have fun in your green and partying it up today. But please go easy peeps. Cheers!



And a super Happy Birthday to my friend Patricia Van Essche of PVE Designs.


You can check out the amazing artist and blog wonder here or just look up and see her handy work on my banner.



Patrica and I have been friends since back in the days when we were both still in the world of 7th avenue fashion. The friendship was cemented the day I discovered she had some sort of bewitching powers and predicted my twins even before my own doctor! Although I suspect since she had just given birth to her own twins she wanted some to follow her in the madness. Since then we've been thick as thieves in good times and so-so. Watching our babies grow up way too fast. Both moving from the city to the sort of country and working hard to make our dreams come true.
Patrica's works of art around my house. I know, lucky me.







Join me in 3 cheers to Patricia! Happy Birthday! May this year be all you wish for.


Much Love,

Kwana

A lovely tribute to a lovely woman! And I really love that lemon painting...Big fan of food paintings. Big fan of the food, come to think of it. :-)

Happy Birthday Patricia!
An irish toast to you my friend!
May your right hand always be stretched out in friendship and never in want.

Kwana, Happy St. Patty's Day from Kelly and me. She is wearing green today just for the celebration.

I love the paintings that Patricia has done for you over the years. I painted lemons years ago too. Every time I see the painting at my mom's it makes me laugh to know how I drove this poor teacher crazy... lol...

Kelly and I are sending you and Jack many hugs... xoxo

My inner witch is telling me to have a good time today
and telling you that you are one sneaky leprechaun.

Wonderful tribute - I didn't realize you've been friends with Patricia all these years. Hope you've had a great St. Patrick's Day!

Kwana said...

Thanks so much for all the well wishes for my dear friend. Yep it's been many years. I'm happy to have her living nearby now which is great. Thanks to her on her B-day. Still being her sweet self and shopping for me as I was down with back pain. So PVE!

Oh and I love all my paintings but I will say my Lemons are my fave!
