Today's featured designers are a sister team of Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister.
I don't know what their pillow looks like but I bet you might just need glasses - sunglasses because I am quite sure it will be bright and cheerful.
Hop on over to their blog to check it out.
Barb and Mary both live in Phoenix, but a distance from each other.
They have told me that they talk often on the phone to discus business...and just to talk.
I am pretty sure Barb will call Mary or Mary will call Barb today.
My subject for today's painting is a telephone.
I have titled today's picture...
Does anybody out there remember party lines?
For you young ones - No a party line is not one of those naughty 800 lines.
A party line was a telephone line that had more than one party.
Again for the young ones - No not party central with several parties going on at once.
A party line meant that three households might all be on the same line.
Each party (household) had a different ring.
Our ring was 2 shorts and long.

My mother recently lost her best friend of more than 60 years. If they did not see each other they called each other daily.
I was visiting with mom and she said she really misses having someone to call.
It occurred to me that most of mom's friends are gone. Made me so sad.
Call someone today...while you still have someone to call…it will make their day...and yours too.
From my heart,
