First aprons arrive!!!
The first aprons have arrived! It's always so fun to have the mail woman hand me a box for "Pino Blangiforti'. Now that the post office knows it's a donkey getting aprons, it's even more delicious.
The package of wonderful vintage aprons showed up unannounced from Helen Hoelck from Connecticut, so it was a surprise. We love surprises. Good ones anyway.
When I emailed Helen to thank her for the generous donation, I discovered we have other things in common She too has cared for stray cats and senior critters , including her beloved Yorki who lived to be 20 years old. And when she saw the links on the site, she graciously made a donation to Old Dog Haven. That is one of the great things about the networked world we live in, it can bring causes and people together. I'm happy Pino and the aprons had something to do with it. Helen had also just made a donation to Haiti, so, we wish we could feed her some pie. She is an artist who specializes in restoring dolls, and had planned to use the old aprons for her work - but was having a hard time cutting into them [know the feeling]. And when she saw a little donkey needed aprons for a pie party, well, that sealed their fate. Saved by a donkey!
Thank you, Helen. You are now an official Pino Ambassador.
