Fire report and things from friends....
Just want to let you all know that we are OK and the fire in Santa Barbara is not too close to us. We do have helicopters going overhead and the air is quite smokey.The fire in July was way too close for comfort but this one is farther south and closer to the city. I do have some close friends in the evacuated area that I am concerned about and feel for those whose homes have burned....now over 100 in just a few hours.
On to more fun things...I wanted to share the great little doll and pin and goodies that arrived from Madeira Island near Portugal about a month ago from Minda. We did a trade and I love what she sent me! She has a Flickr site with her fun creations...and a Blog with some fun pins that she has made: http://coisasgirasdaminda.blogspot.com/
And while in Seattle, Syd and I were able to get a visit in to Tara Ross's artful home and studio. I had to have some of her wonderful paintings and we did a trade too. She has the most whimsical style and is always trying new things...with a full time job and raising a teenager!
