By Way of Thanks
One of the wife's friends did something extraordinarily nice the other week, and I'm just now getting around to acknowledging it.
Earlier this year, the wife had asked this friend, an artist, about how much she would want for doing a particularly described painting. They didn't make contact after that until a bit before the friend's Independence Day Get-Together, and the subject did not come up.
Not right when we got to the party, but only after a little catching up, we were urged to tour the artist's studio. We rounded a corner and there stood an easel that held the completed painting for us to just take -- I say completed because she bundled the mounting hardware with it. It goes perfectly in the boy's room and he really loves it. It will be something he can choose to pass on to any little ones he helps bring along.
Long story, but you had to be there for it to be shorter, so too bad for you. Here's where this website comes in: much of the aforementioned studio space is devoted to a Very Neat Shop where lacy underthings become unique lampshades. These "illuminated lingerie" are all made by hand from vintage clothing, and no two are alike. Pardon my french, but tres décor. Get your order in before the late-Summer rush on the Winter holiday season, as these would make great, one-of-a-kind gifts.
Obviously I can't write ads, so just visit and peruse the goods. A sweet thanks to Kelly for her kindness, and may she receive many hits in return.
