You will find Katie's blog The Red Tin an eclectic mix of art, doll making, quilting, needle work, and because of her love of mail art ... interviews with mail men. A lovely, and most interesting young woman.
I want to thank everyone who left a comment to enter. Your comments always touch my heart. You come here with such loveliness and leave it on my pages. I must say there was one comment which completely caught me off guard and was a wonderful surprise .. thank you Lynnie. Very special.
The flood? Chayo and his crew were here at 8:00 am this morning. The jardin was cleaned and washed down. The bodega was emptied and cleaned out. The garbage was taken away and by 10:00 am I couldn't tell there had been a flood. Thank goodness for Chayo! Fortunately, the only important thing in the bodega was a box of books. They are pretty much toast, however, I do have them everywhere drying in hopes they can still be used for art. They are all books from France! Luckily nothing else of importance was lost. All the paint is fine, the pressure pump was not damaged. Even my suitcases will dry out (I think). Whew! I had taken all my art supplies to the studio ... so how lucky am I! All's well that ends well.
