|I still remember the day I walked into Chaparral and saw "Dreaming of Tomatoes." I picked it up and never put it down. So, when I saw "Siesta" in the same patina ~ I just had to have it. I wanted them to be together, so when I saw this position...well, putting them in a wooden bowl just seemed like the perfect way to let them snooze in peace. The bowl is nestled in a larger one and it makes a very stunning display. We get lots of comments on it. Gayla Wiedenheft, MT.
Now, you may enjoy a similar experience with longhaired versions of "Dreaming of Tomatoes" and "Siesta."
Many thanks, Gayla, for sending this wonderful image. Enjoy!
