These past few months have been especially hectic and it seems that we've been flying through the days, just trying to get things done. I am thankful for our friend Ian who comes over every day for his lunch. Sometimes I feel a bit rushed or bothered that I have to stop what I am doing, make tea and cookies and set the table when I have so much to do. But as soon as he arrives, with his big smiles, loud booming voice and twinkling, old eyes, I forget all of that and we sit down for 20 minutes and take a break. I am thankful to Ian for the time he gives us, his stories and his friendship. He is going to be 85 next week and is one smart cookie. He knows that there's always time for a cup of tea.
We are two Newfoundland artists who live and work in a wee, kooky cottage by the sea, in a tiny, little town called Upper Island Cove. We carve, paint, build things and run a 4 star hotel for cats. Life here can be hard and the ocean can get angry, but on sunny, calm days, the whales come out to play and it is the best place to be on earth. If you'd like to stop by our studio to have a gander at our artwork, we'd love to see you. There is a free cat with every purchase, and a complimentary lint rolling service as you depart. Can you ask for anything better than that?
