SHOW DAY - MY KIOSK

Where are all the people? uh, at home because it's raining and it's cold. Actually despite
the lousy weather on Sunday, the outdoor art show was still lots of fun. Saturday was warm,
sunny and busy. I did lots of trades with other artists. (More dolls for my hand-made doll
collection!)

helene lacelle's FOLK ART @ SECOND CUP
















The 'Brad Pitt' Fan Club meet every morning at the Second Cup.
















Some cafes are more fun than others to hang art in,
The Second Cup on Bank Street at 2nd Ave in the Glebe
is one of them. Stephanie the manager was so ever helpful
and sweet moving furniture around then Lester, a cafe regular offered to give
me a hand setting up my show too. As he handed me the hammer
and nails he talked about his famous brother the actor Norm
Macdonald and his other famous brother Neil Macdonald the
CBC journalist. Thanks Lester!

Art will be displayed until March 31, 2010.
