Basi, the oldest known living panda, passed away recently at the age of 37. She was named after the valley where she was rescued around 4 or 5 years of age. Life expectancy for a panda is usually around 20 years old, but with good medical care and nutrition, they can live much longer.  Giant pandas are regarded as symbols of China and are highly protected. Due to large scale conservation work they are no longer endangered. I just love Pandas!

Getting to Know Lesli

Lesli Devito can’t quite remember when she started painting, just that she’s been doing it for quite a while now. With no formal training, Lesli took her own path and experimented with different types of paint. Eventually, she settled on something unconventional: acrylic house paint. She hopes that her works will “take people to their happy place.” Lesli also created a blog called My Old Country House in which she writes about her life, art and other adventures. Fun fact: during one summer in New York City, she worked as a Playboy bunny and nanny. Then she went back to college.
