A few weeks ago, my artist friend Eileen surprised me with a beautiful necklace and treated me to breakfast. It is made from a special yarn that has squares (which looks like facets) of thread colors and then they are woven into strands. The colors are the full spectrum. I just so happened to be wearing a frog jacket when she gave it to me and they looked great together. Since I mentioned it, here's a picture of the frog jacket:
The colors of the jacket matched the colors of the necklace Eileen gave me. Actually, since then I have learned that lots of things match that necklace. It is a pretty fun thing to have.
Eileen is a special sort of person--very thoughtful. She said she gave me the necklace to thank me for putting her paintings into our shows at O'Connor's while she was on a trip. I would have just done it for her as a friend, but it was very nice to actually be thanked. So now, thank you, Eileen, for the necklace and breakfast and also the chance to talk about my unique jacket, too!
