~ Mickey & Tinker Bell ~

In September we took a family trip to Disneyland in Los Angles for our Granddaughter Aleena's 10th birthday. While shopping down main street of this very magical place Gary spotted a watch shop. Now if you know Gary, you know how he loves his watches.
A Disney artist by the name of Charles Landholm was drawing with water color Mickey. (click to enlarge ). After the painting is complete the picture is then scanned into the computer and made into a watch face. The watch is just beautiful I should have taken a picture to show you, sorry about that. Anyway Gary loves Mickey and just had to have the watch and picture. We were able to take the watch and painting home unframed.
Tinker Bell is my favorite of all, I just love it when she flies across the sky from the castle at Disneyland. As a surprise gift Gary had the artist paint Tinker Bell for me and had a watch made also. So several weeks went by and a box arrived on the front porch addressed to me. Gary said open the box and when I did I saw the most lovely Tinker Bell ever. We had both pictures framed the same so we put them in our dinning room so we could see them everyday.
