"Greendream" and "Tulips" in the Flowershop


©estandrea 2009

On Friday I brought two of my flower-designs to the flowershop around the corner. The owner is a very nice lady who always takes artists' works.

I thankfully used the two nails the previous artist had put there for her pictures, how convenient!
On Friday evening around 10 I discovered a message on my cellphone which was off for the afternoon cause no juice. It was the lady of the flowershop, asking me to call her back cause when opening the shop in the morning, she had found one of the paintings had fallen down, the glass broken and the frame damaged...

The night I didn't sleep so well, thought perhaps the fallen frame and glass had damaged some of her vases and flowers! But the picture fell down just behind a sideboard, between the wall and the sideboard and nothing else was damaged, thank you universe:)

Next day I had appointments and couldn't go there right away, so my dear husband did and picked up the damaged frame, put the painting into another frame and later we returned together to put in more solid nails for both paintings.

So, this story is just to tell you that I discovered that every action causes other actions. Nothing ever stays as simple as it can, no? :)

Good night sleep tight and don't let the nightmares bite
love
Andrea

I live in fear of my paintings falling off the wall! At one show, the gallery owners wanted to hang a five footer above a set of stairs that people would have to walk under to get to the rest of the gallery. Luckily, I talked them out of that! Good to know that your painting survived!

Alls well that ends well. but you're right, nothing is ever as simple as we think it will be. But the good thing is... the paintings look FABULOUS there. Sleep well.

Pretty, pretty tulips. Isn't that just like sweet you - not being able to sleep thinking your falling picture damaged something that belongs to the nice lady. You are so special!

Lovely paintings and the flowers set them off. Glad nothing was damaged, that would have been awful.

What a story! I am sure the flowershoplady was concerned about damage to your work and you were worried about damage to her work! It just goes to show you what wonderful people you both are, though. I am so sorry you lost sleep because of worry. That is not a good thing. When we all work together incredible things happen in this world, don't you think.

You are also right, it is never as simple as one decision, but I have a feeling it is that energy of one thing leading to another and helping each other that makes this world keep on going.

I can imagine your paintings look amazing there in the shop. Take More Photos! I love Paris Flower Shops So Much - the way they spill out the front doors is so appealing.

Well, I really love tulips so lovely. I enjoyed reading your post. It makes a lot of sense. I'm been looking for topics as interesting as this. Looking forward to your next post.
