One of my favorite artists is Mary Engelbreit of Missouri.
Her whimsical style of painting is colorful, happy and pleasing to the eye.
I've purchased her calendars for years and have even saved the drawings from those pages.
Last weekend while perusing a thrift store, a holiday tray caught my eye.
It was in need of washing and buried under other stuff on a shelf but sure enough! It was the work of Mary Engelbreit.
When I got the tray home, I washed it in hot, soapy water and let it dry.
It's got a darling figure of Santa wearing turned up, elf-like shoes!
The borders are pretty, too.
I love it!
It now adorns the kitchen counter near the sink.
It's as if I received an early Christmas present, a $1.79 Christmas bargain! Woo hoo!
And an early Merry Christmas wish for Mary Engelbreit and each of you!
