His latest project

A 1909 Kimball - this poor piano was thrashed. My hubby rescued it about 30 years ago from a nursery school junk pile, cleaned up the outside, but it has taken this long to open it up and do some major repair. Numerous keys broken, a couple missing, no pedals, and that is just the obvious work.

Cleaning it out we found sparkle glitter, poker chips, crayons and a cigarette butt stowed away in the innards. Lots of work ahead - when he finishes the inside, I'll get out the tung oil and finish up the outside.

Celebrating All People


For the record... this girl celebrates the bonds of friendship and commerce that weave through all countries around the world, the sharing of talents, creativity, good will, kindness and goods that transcends borders. In fact, this morning I am eating an avocado from Mexico, and drinking a mug (hand painted in Italy) of coffee whose beans were harvested in Sumatra. I buy hand dyed silk from a woman in Australia and dyed wool from a woman in Czechoslovakia. In turn my books, fiber art and paintings travel the world - my painted girls advertise a spa in Germany and adorn a garden wall (as a mosaic) in South Australia. I have a dear friend from the Netherlands, another from South Africa, and yet another whose husband is from China... oh did I mention Mom is Canadian. I celebrate all people, all countries, all belief systems, all backgrounds.
