I received some VERY good mail yesterday. One in my mail-box, and the other…just a walk to the post office to sign for my box (of hazardous, maybe terroristic) goodies. What are they (the government ?) thinking. I have a lot of Over-the-Seas friends, that I buy from and sell to…yet every time it’s the signing and explaining. I find it Stupid!
If I was shipping my friend in Australia or Italy a gun, or bomb, or even something with lead paint…would I fess-up on the customs slip?
Here are the items I’ve signed into my custody:
This (quite large) ornament from Suze in Italy. We were partners in an ornament exchange. I really love it for a lot of reasons…but the best reason is that I can use it for Valentine’s too! It is perfect and I love it! Thank you Suze :)
This (also quite large) is a painting I purchased from Julie-ann I just call her Julie, but click to see some truly beautiful painting. I can tell you, it is even more lovely when you are holding it in you grimy, little paws!
I loved her wood canvas so much that I stole it from her for my new commission…Wish I could have stole her husband to do it for me, but i managed.
I am very excited about this commission, very last minute. It’s a Klimt inspired piece. I will show when I get to the painting…today I just built the canvas and sketched.
I love deadlines, but this one has to do with someone’s Happy Christmas…and there is the USPS to consider…so I will be nose to nose and heart to heart with this project every free moment.
We have another Nutcracker performance and dinner with friends and a cocktail party…OH NO!!! It looks like I’ll also have to shower and shave.
Forget the shaving, I’ll wear boots with my dress :)
