* It's been a lovely day in the neighbourhood

I've thoroughly enjoyed my day.  I didn't venture past the courtyard walls and it was lovely.  The sun was shining, the temperature is in the mid seventies, the water makes soft noises falling gently in the fountain ... what more can I ask for.

Progress is being made in the Studio.  Glass is now in every window and door.  Painting is coming along, both inside and out.  It took four coats of paint to make a good job of the ceiling!  The first coat of pink is on two walls.  I was just a little concerned about these colours, however, I followed my heart and I think it's really going to be a fun room to be in.  Here's the latest photo of the progress.

Can't wait to see the orange walls.  The scallops along the top of the wall are fun.  There will be a small circle just below every one.  Hard to explain ...
Mail art was on the agenda today.  Honestly, I am getting such a kick out of this.  I posted a note on site saying that the next five people to post would receive a goodie pack from Mexico.  It took about half an hour to get five people who wanted to play.  Two from the USA, one from Canada, one from Argentina, and one from Trinidad and Tobago.  It will be fun to receive a package back.  Here's the envelopes.

Can you tell I had fun?
