One woman, lots of paint and hundreds of tiles. If you're here because you found a painted tile, it's yours to keep.

Jo's bad bad news

Jo kept her eye on the news, awaiting word of which stores would close .. hoping and praying that the place where she went each morning for her white chocolate mocha frappucino would not forever close its doors and abandon her the way other coffee shops did.

She had finally found a barista who knew exactly what she wanted and what time she'd be rushing in there for it each morning. She really liked him too, and she would always tell him that he was her favorite barista. He pretended to get mad when she called him a barista. He said that word was too highfalutin. "I'm a coffeemaker," he'd say, and then he'd do this crazy little move in which he appeared to be percolating.

Yeah, it wasn't just the coffee that Jo would miss. It was the whole experience.

But then Jo found the map of the closings, and her store was on it. She was utterly inconsolable .... losing her favorite coffeemaker and her white chocolate mocha frappucino was simply more than Jo could bear.

Dropped Jo at the Starbucks at 1100 W. Broward Blvd., in Fort Lauderdale ... which is reportedly among those stores scheduled to close. She's leaning against the wall by the sink, in a state of utter devastation.

I am one of the baristas who found this lovely little jewel.
It is currenly sitting on our manager's desk. We love it! It was hanging out by the register for awhile, looking for its artist. If you drink a Venti White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino, I know who you are! How do I get in touch with you to get more tiles??

Thanks. Jo was hanging around the register and now she's on the manager's desk? That's not like going to the principal's office, is it? I mean, she's not in trouble or anything, right?

I don't REALLY drink Venti White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino. If I did, I would never say that ... because my name isn't really Mary Tiler More, but you probably already guessed that. Please take good care of Jo, as she was feeling a little sad ... and SHE does like the white chocolate.

As for the tiles, I only make them and hide them in places around town ... so you never know when you might encounter another.

P.S. - You might want to go ahead and ask that Venti White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino drinker if they have any secrets to share, 'cause most everyone does.
