The Artist

The Artist

I thought this fun story from Beaver Creek deserved its own post.  One day Than and Katya were wandering through an art gallery, admiring the paintings.

The lady who worked there realized our daughter’s name was Katya and was very interested in that, since she had immigrated from Eastern Europe and that is a common name there.  After conversing for a while, she gave Katya the gift of some art postcards.  Katya drew her a picture to say thank-you and delivered it the next day.  The lady hung Katya’s picture on the wall in between two pieces of art worth about $10,000!

She even labeled it with Katya’s name.  The picture stayed on the wall all day and into the next, much to our surprise and Katya’s pleasure.  Perhaps we will see her work hanging there again someday…

A Lady’s Purse

A Lady’s Purse

It’s never nice to dig around in a lady’s purse, but Katya consented to let me take a photo of what was in hers…

…a teapot, a baby bottle, a Gideon New Testament, two used gift cards, a play credit card, a baby phone rattle, and old cell phone, a bottle of toothpicks, two bracelets, a flashlight, a flower pen, a rhinestone hair comb, a broken keychain, a key, an allen wrench, a Lego dog, and about 15 or 20 assorted bits and beads and buttons.  What’s in your purse?
