A Pause….

February 4, 2010

The individual ladies of The Ladies Salon are fortunate to be engaged
in a variety of creative activities at present, and for the
foreseeable future. So it has been decided that The Ladies Salon will
be taking a sabbatical. The year of 2010 promises to be a very
productive one and the ladies look forward to keeping you informed of
their many exciting projects.

The Artists Studio: Day 7: Journeying & Collecting

February 3, 2010

The Postmistress observes that Jo is never happier, or more creative, than when she is journeying and collecting – people, objects, experiences – along her travels; and that by far her favourite studio is moving through the city of London.

The ladies would like to thank you for contacting us by email, text and telephone.  The postman has been rather busy of  late  which has meant that the ladies have not been able to respond to all of the mail arriving at their private residencies.

Thanks are due to Philip who said he has  enjoyed the quirkiness of the ladies’ various endeavours.

Thanks  also go to Elizabeth for her one worded  correspondence  ‘ What?!’  and  her coded illustration (which transformed into a bright smiling face)  😀

Thanks to all who said ‘Great’ , ‘ like it, ‘keep up the good work’ and ‘good stuff’.

Some readers have expressed a concern about Julie working in an office:

‘That’s not you!’

‘How are you going to manage?’

‘I’ll believe it when I see it!’

The Postmistress is happy to inform you that your concerns  that she may  soon be singing Dolly Parton’s, ‘Working nine to five’ are unfounded and that, as usual, Julie is often seen burning the midnight oil, wandering from room to room and over fields in order to find the most conducive place for each particular piece of writing.

Julie has also been kindly afforded the opportunity to use her office at any time of the day or night and so, it appears, that for those of you who thought it may inhibit her writing – your fears were unfounded. The postmistress can also report that her office is looking more homely by the day.  For those of you who feel the need to feast your eyes upon  evidence we have provided some thumbnail photographs and illustrations to show a few of the places Julie has been working this week.

Ness has been seen taking her constitutional walks with a certain canine friend and has continued to work diligently in her office in between  pressing engagements.  The postmistress is happy to report that her spies have just returned from observing Jo at work and you will soon, dear reader,  see evidence of her recent activities on this site.

Once again, thank you so much for your kind letters. Please do continue to contact us but please do  spare a thought for the poor postie as s/he sets off to each lady’s independent address.  The postmistress would like to urge you on the Ladies’ behalf  to address all future public correspondence to the comment boxes provided for this purpose on the postmistress site.

Kindest Felicitations

The Postmistress
