We are in the middle of a heat wave in New Jersey -- it was close to 100 degrees here yesterday. So, in the hopes that seeing some snow might make me feel a little cooler, I thought I would show you a little painting that I got last Friday at a rummage sale. Is this cute, or what? The whole thing, frame and all, is about the size of a piece of paper. I think the painting is naive, but totally charming. On the back is a message: "To Glen from Nell, 1967." As always, I wonder about the artist. Who was she? Did Glen appreciate her gift? Why did it end up in a rummage sale? Of course I'll never know, but it is fun to consider.
I went to this rummage sale with my friend, Robin. I swore I was not going to buy anything. Robin just laughed. That's always the way, isn't it? But the painting was 75 cents, so I guess I didn't break the bank. And I got a reminder of cooler weather! The forecasters say more of the same today. Some schools in New Jersey have closed because of the heat today. Stay cool, dear bloggers!
