I will leave for Tiny House Ontario tomorrow morning after rush hour. I am going for a few reasons this time. Firstly, I am picking up Joe the three legged street cat in downtown Toronto and driving him to his Foster Home in Kingston Ontario. Poor old Joe was one of the disposable pets out on the street, due to his injury it was extra hard for him to survive. He was rescued in cooperation with Annex Cat Rescue, Project Pet Rescue, and Kingston Animal Rescue. He has been vetted, neutered and will be up for adoption once he is rehabilitated. You can read more about Joe here, or if you are interested in making a donation to help with Joe’s vet bills or his care please do so with one or all of the agencies listed and linked above. Perhaps you would like to adopt him or another homeless animal?
I am also heading to Kingston because I have a show in Battersea Ontario at the United Church. They have invited local talent to come to show and sell their items. The show will be on November 30 from 9-5. I am excited to do this show because there is a lot of free and close parking so I expect a lot of my friends and family to be there. For a lot of people getting into the downtown for market days is just too difficult and stressful, so it will give me an opportunity to show my work to members of my family, and friends who have not yet seen it live! Art work is so much better in person!
Please do come to the show to see the local talent if you are anywhere nearby. Admission is just $5 and I bet you will be able to find wonderful unique gifts for a reasonable cost there.
My most recent work Grandma’s Gift will be shown for the first time.
I am also of course visiting my house and I am very excited about this! We have snow in Kingston now so I will bring along my snowshoes! My cousin Tracey took this photo this morning and allowed me to share it. I look forward to getting out into the magical forest and seeing the changes that Mother Earth has undergone!
