Well...just look, okay?
|Yes. That is an original painting of the Good Knight and his dragon friends by the amazing Jennifer Plecas.|
So, we watched the bidding, ready to swoop in at the last minute and walk away with it. But we were not alone in our desire to own this adorable painting. AND the auction was set to end the night before Thanksgiving....and we were traveling in a different time zone. So, I logged in to check on the bidding....thinking I had all the time in the world...and there were only 10 MINUTES LEFT!! (And my husband was bidding for us, not me....and he was out somewhere...aaauuugghhh!!)
Yes, the call I made to him was frantic. And he might have had to exceed the speed limit to get back in time (sorry police officers of Albuquerque). But I am happy to report that he was victorious...even though it was a tough battle--perhaps the toughest ten minute bidding war in e-bay history.
But we won!!
However, my family kept the painting from me until Christmas. But that was okay because it was the Coolest.Thing.Ever to open on Christmas morning.
And now it hangs above my desk. Love.
(And yes, I have new glasses. And yes, they may or may not look like Justin Bieber's. I was actually trying to get Harry Potter glasses and ended up with these, only to be told by my class that they looked liked Justin Bieber's. And also Brad Pitt has my glasses, too.)
