Monday with Janet

Yes, Monday again and it's hot and sunny here in Melbourne...and did I say HOT!

It was a very productive weekend. MONT spent a good part of Saturday with a group of blokes who were helping out a lady who lost her husband and son in the February bushfires here in Victoria. Her husband was a sensational fella and had been at Number 10 a few times to do some plastering. He's very sadly missed by a lot of people..

Then yesterday, we spent some time at Number 3. Again. Trying to get some more things done before the floor sanding man turned up today. I can't wait to see the finished result later in the week...and yes, I will post photos. I PROMISE!

Today though, something gorgeous.

I love the work of Canadian artist, Janet Hill. I've already purchased three of her prints and when I saw these I thought, hmmmm maybe I can have these too.

They're a great idea for Christmas gifts. You can go to her Etsy store here and see what she has and order some if you like.

You won't be disappointed. I sure wasn't!

    As for Mont and his friends....a task undertaken with much compassion for a fellow traveller in life. May she find peace and happiness ahead....

  4. Hi, Lesley,

    Those are gorgeous paintings. I too love art. I probably have too much hanging around.

    You know, I believe in angels in the form of people in this world. The hands and heart of a person helping another is so priceless.

    Great post, beautiful pictures and heartwarming story of people helping people.

  5. Alison, MONT's been doing a bit of work up around Kinglake and Strathewen, which were devastated by the fires. It's still so shocking in some parts. I can't go up there with him. I get too upset.

    White Dove, I wish I looked that good and had a painting done of me like that. But alas, no, it's just Janet's beautiful brush work. Gorgeous isn't it.

    Gail - welcome. I hope you stick around and make lots of comments. I think you'll like my critters too. Our two dogs were both orphans that we took in.

    Teresa, your comments are ALWAYS welcome and eagerly awaited.

    Lesley
