If you've visited with me for any length of time on this here blog, you might have noticed my affection for and obsession with a British artist by the name of Sam Toft. I have several of her pieces, bought through the years as posters, prints, calendars, etc, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at them and feel happy inside doing so. Sam craated the world of Mr. Mustard and his little Jack Russell named Doris, and everything about this world is whimsical and lovely and full of giggles and joy.
It seems that Sam is climbing into the ring with a fight against cancer now, and I was wondering if I could impose upon Spinster Nation to keep her in your thoughts and prayers for a swift and easy recovery as she heads down a new path. I've never met Sam, but she has played such an enormous part of my life these last many years because of that first poster I saw in a Michael's bin, that I want to do something...anything...to keep her around a good while longer.
If you are an Instagrammer, you can find her quite simply by searching for Sam Toft or samtoftartist. Be careful, though, because I know you'll fall in love, just like I did!
Thank you, Dearies! I know what the power of your love can do, and I hope that it is as miraculous for a friend in Cornwall as it has been for me!
