Quick Apology to My Readers! ...

Sorry I wasn't able to honor my commitment to Pink Saturday this week. I'm dealing with a major water issue which has put our (1 year old) kitchen underwater. Grrrrr. Lots of mess to deal with - as well as repairmen and insurance agents.

I'll be back in a couple days. Thanks for sticking with me!

Oh - I've been working a little bit on the torso mini-theatre - this is as far as I've gotten!

Hope you're making something beautiful!

Tristan ~ Bless your heart. Hope all gets fixed quickly! Happy Pink Saturday, anyway! Still haven't heard from Kris.

Rhonda Roo said...

Oh no! Your brand new baby kitchen underwater? :(

We won't dwell, but instead say
MY What a fabulous torso!!!

Kinda like body is a temple, but more like torso is theatre, hee.

Send good vibes!!

I'm so sorry Tristan!! I know what that is to deal with water damage. Many years ago we had a house on the Susquehanna River in Tunkhannock, Pa. We were flooded... hence... now we live at 1800 feet elevation & a lo-o-o-ng way from running water!!
Keep us posted!!

Paula said...

Arrgh, you should be working on an ark mini theater, not a torso one! (LOL). How utterly frustrating for you, I had a similar situation happen last year, but it was with the air con pipe bursting in my office.

Sue said...

Tristan, I'm impressed that with your water problems, you are still
creating beauty. Your mini torso theatre is looking fabulous!

We miss you bunches, and will be here once you dry out.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear of the mess you're in! That's my hubby's biz ~ disaster restoration, he see this everyday. If it's any consolation, they will fix it up and make it all brand new again. I'll be thinking of you!

I keep wishing for a water damage in my tired kitchen ~ my prayers have not been answered (had to add a touch of twisted humor, sorry!) I'm sure it would not be as "fun" as I dream.

Best wishes ~
