i just have to share this treasure with you
Posted in personal August 28th, 2008 by piablog


Once upon a time, back in my Indigo days (for new readers this term can be explained here, here, and here), I had employees. One of them was a young girl named Jo. Not only was she one of the best darn employees I could have ever wished for, but she has since become a fabulous and dear friend. The other day while looking through old photos and knick knacks I happened upon this postcard that I remembered she had left me one afternoon at the shop. From memory it was attached to a little gift, and I remember thinking how serene the image was, and then bursting out laughing when I turned the card. I just had to share it with you…



The gift of her card made my day, and the gift of stumbling upon it still makes my day. Dear Jo, you are a treasure.

    Hey Pia!
    I have been checking out your blog and having an absolute ball in the process! I love your style and the way you write- so very inviting and sharing!
    And so today I couldn’t resist commenting – the postcard from your friend is so touching and beautful – keeping things like this and finding them again later is a wonderful gift all over again! In this case I am all for hoarding!
