Happy Valentine to whoever
Something to share with you - Did you know that Cleopatra so loved the colour purple that she once ordered each slave to obtain an ounce of purple dye for her? The dye was derived from a special, rare snail and each snail produced only 2-3 drops. It took years for her order to be carried out as over 60,000 snails had to be harvested in order to produce a single pound of her beloved Tyrian purple dye.
The latest Studios arrived today and all the ones on the list have been posted out - there are a few left over if anyone is interested. Quite a few studios in California - not anywhere where we were I can tell you. One studio which really interested me was that of Isabelle de Borchgrave - she is the artist who creates so much fabulous work (lots of garments) using paper. Scrumptious studio as you can imagine.
I guess there are much worse things which can happen.......
