Anyhow, a few weeks ago we found out that Frankie magazine was no longer being distributed in Canada, and I was sad. A subscription costs more than buying the magazine at the newsstand, and it really is one of the few magazines that I love. I complained about this fact, this lack of distribution. A darling, Seattle-based girl who I have known online for a few years -- and who I've managed to keep in touch with a little bit via Twitter -- sent me a recent copy. I was thrilled to get my Frankie fix (it's been months!), but even better, she included a few extra treats. I adore this painting she made and sent to me. These are my favourite colours! Peach and grey and teal and deep red and slate blue and purple.
She's a little shy, and I hope I'm not embarrassing her too much. But thank you, thank you, Stephanie.
