WANTED: I'm a Very Lucky Girl....
My partner is John and he sent me the most wonderful gifts.
John explained in his letter that he had struggled a bit before hitting on the theme - Props - "Garnishes for the image, visual condiments, background scenery" How perfect is that?
The gifts include something shiny and something red.
The little red Fleur-de-lis serving dishes were made by John's wife, the one known as SWMBO. I love hand crafted pottery. And I remember admiring these dishes in one of John's photos last year.
Couldn't wait to use, so I served Moe his salad in one tonight.
The Shiny - a pair of Sterling Salt and Pepper Shakers. They are going to be the finishing touch to many photos.
John, also included one of his favourite books. Between Meals: An Appetite For Paris by A.J. Liebling. I know that I will enjoy this book.
The last item - a gadget - one I have never seen before. John describes it as a police implement meant to extract confessions - thinki fingers. LOL!!!!
Actually it is a jar opener that ratchets. I gave it a try and it works great.
John, I really want to thank you. You couldn't have picked a better theme or sent me anything I would like better. Especially thrilled with your wife's pottery. Please thank her for me too.
