It's been awhile since I actually posted something pink for Pink Wednesday. Here's a pretty good dose of it for you! Vintage pink baby slippers and ballerina tutu, a bear dressed in pink made by Diane Kennedy, Wee Scone Bears - Scotland, and the box that I made in Lisa Kaus's class that I still haven't finished. Hee!
Speaking of Lisa, Bill and I ran into her this past Sunday in one of my favorite shops, the Jealous Gardener, which is located in the Sellwood District of Portland. Perfect timing I'd say! Oh, my, my....the goodies she had with her! I had to take a peek you know. When one of my favorite artists on the planet asks if I want to see what she's been working on lately......well, hello!, I'm not going to say, "No dear. I have to run." Are ya crazy? The long and short of it....Bill and I got a private viewing of Lisa's art right there in the back of her van on 17th Avenue with traffic whizzing by. Just thinking of it makes me giggle! Did I bring anything home? Well, of course.....silly you! The Banker (Bill) was with me! Ha!
Here is one of the pieces. Had to have it. It's my nickname....Queen. For those of you who don't know the story....I was named after Queen Aleta of the Misty Isles from the Prince Valiant series of.........comic strip fame!! Yes, dear hearts, I was named after a comic strip character. :o) As Paul Harvey would say....And now, you know the rest of the story. *smiles*
Warmest Pink Wednesday on Thursday bear hugs, Aleta
