The Queen Annes Lace is gorgeous and I can't believe you have Black Eyed Susans up already. I always look forward to them blooming in NJ!

I bought a few books at the sale...nothing else. The fur stole was gone when I went back. I felt so fortunate to have seen the collection and that I was given permission to take the pictures though.

It is always best to be on the upswing...glad that you are feeling better. The image of the tree with its textured bark is awesome.

Hi Joe, I was tickled pink to know that you saw those posts! Did you also make the gingerbread house at the frame shop on the other side of town? I would like so much to write a post about you if you are up for it. Did you go to school for art or culinary? So many questions. Best Regards, Susan
