Creating Your Summer
In the 1999 and the 2000 issues of Victoria magazine
a 'Bliss Team' was created -
Tricia Foley, Leslie George, Nancy Lindemeyer, Susan Maher and Robin Reiser.

Classic woodframe screen door.
The Bliss team encouraged us to find items

"Hovering just above our thoughts, hats are all about dreams."

sent to Victoria magazine in the 1999
