A week or more ago a beading buddy of mine, Dini, wrote to tell me that a good friend of her son had just got on the police force in Reedsport, ( about 16 miles south of me) and did I know of any rentals. Whewwww that is a tall order in my part of the world. Rentals are very difficult to come by. I told her I would put some feelers out to see what I could come up with. I made some calls to people I know that have rentals, nope all filled. I sent emails to people up and down the coast. No, they didn't know of any either. I even texted my mail lady. She said the antique store between Florence and Reedsport had a rental. I sent the info to Dini straight away. Well, turned out that the owners wanted to rent the apt above and antique store. AND the store???? Oh and they want $4,000.00 a month. uhhh yeah...
After a few days and more phone calls, the officer got a break. One of his co-workers with a rental had an opening. Problem solved. Dini wrote to tell me to watch the mail. That she was sending me a thank you gift. I told her it was not necessary, that it was my pleasure to try and help.
Friday, Mr. M. comes in with a package for me. The package was a bright shinny green envelope and as I looked at the return address it was from Dini.
Look at this envelope, I just love it!
Inside was even better. Is this box just too adorable?
You all know I love polka dots! Even the inside.
artist in Grants Pass, OR. and my beading buddy, Dini,
beaded this amazing star fish. The glass is very heavy and
so this is a paperweight. However, I have found a good place on my bead shelf with other gifts and my beadwork so I can see it every day.
I wish I could get a better photo so you can see the
Being nice to each other, helping, giving, sharing, loving, that's what life is about, that's what makes us happy.
Be Safe Out There And Wear A Mask
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
