I am so in love with these water cooler was easy to travel with them. I was colouring this while getting a tan on a beach in Greece on vacation last month. Yes...taking a break every now and then, keeping myself cool by taking a dip in the gorgeous clear clean sea water sure was an inspiration. If you have visited Greece, you will know what I mean.
Till next time...inky Sussipoppins hugs to you,
