For this challenge, Bella sent us looking for uncommon things. So here's a two-fer: An advance reading copy of a novel (found at a library book sale) and a beautifully carved gourd by artist Bertha Medina, who is truly a "queen of dreams".
Here's Ms. Medina at work at the 2011 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and some of her astoundingly intricate creations.(She graciously gave me permission to take pictures.)
I sincerely regret that I purchased only this one little tree ornament. Given another shot, I'd go for one or more of those big, beautiful pieces.
I know this is a pretty late entry ... hope somebody finds it ...
