I've had some wonderful mail over the past few months and I've been very delinquent in sharing it with all of you.
Even now, you won't see it all, because sometimes the camera is in a place that the art is not.
This photo shows items from several of you talented folks. In the upper left corner is a postcard from Nathalie, whose Ruby Floy Etsy shop is a delight!

Welcoming our newest Baby Grand, Cameron Joseph or C.J., at long last! I've wanted to post for a bit but Kevin and Molly -- after a...
I wish I had read one of my favorite books, "All the Light You Cannot See," by Anthony Doerr, before I visited St. Malo in 2012. I...
