Isabel Y. sent this "very very (not to say) very" sweet thank-you note from Australia, on the back of the card below. She incorporated an image of the owl bookmark I sent her in her drawing. The pink/green/white remind me of the hishimochi set out for Girls' Day. A great surprise, a priceless card!
This is the lovely picture on the 'back' of the card, showing Isa's home in Mudgeeraba. Her mom, Margaret Price, an old friend from Tokyo, teaches Japanese tea there and runs an art gallery. Check it out at www.gallerytokonoma.com.au.
