Thank you Eileen

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:

Every frog is different, and the back has some, too:

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!

  1. I'm glad Eileen gave you that cool necklace, so I could see your painting of it and our frog jacket too!
