Artful Living

home plate

From time to time an e-mail comes my way requesting a barter of sorts. My father was born and his Mother bartered and paid the kind Doctor with a fresh chicken. My Dad loves to tell this story and chuckle about that poor chicken making it to “home plate.”

So a little barter was agreed upon, a sketch for a platter. This week, my polka-dot bordered platter arrived.
With many holiday celebrations looming, I thought this would be the perfect time to barter a platter for a small home illustration – especially knowing that this sweet gal is holding down her fort at home while her husband is serving in Iraq. Please take a moment to visit Laura at Platters and Splatters. Tell her “pve” sent you!
