Winter dreams...

 Although it has not been as "terrible" a winter as some of the past, it does not take much grey weather to infuse some "cabin fever". A trip south, to bask in the sun, or to an island, would be lovely right about now! However, like "Sister Gaye Paree", pictured here, planning a springtime trip to Paris would be ideal!
  Perhaps "Sister" would like to tour the City of Lights in these ever-so-practical stiletto heels....complete with "La tour Eiffel"....
  Thinking of you, Miss Meg, when I saw the photo of these shoes...

The Beauty of "Props"!




A while ago, a very talented photographer contacted me regarding exchanging hats for photos. I was lucky enough to receive these photos earlier this week. I have posted them to my "Sticks and Strings" site, and have received two orders for this particular hat. I hope that the customers do not think that the baby pictured is included with their purchase! What a difference having a live "model" makes...and a very good photographer! Thanks to Theresa Brereton for her wonderful photos. Looking forward to more!

Handmade gift....



As one who likes to create gifts for people, or purchase handmade as gifts, I was especially thrilled to receive this lovely glass pendant as a special gift myself! My son has started creating glass pieces, and I was lucky enough to receive this one, one that I had admired in photos that he had posted of his work. A special gift indeed....

Tis the season to....

spend more time reading! Now that the busy prep season of the fall shows is over, there is a bit more time to delve into more books than usual. Although I am a "book" person, I did receive an e-reader for Christmas, and must admit that I have enjoyed using it. Learned how to download books from our library, and know that having this device will make it easier to cart books on holiday, etc.
First e-reader book..."The Little Giant of Aberdeen County" by Tiffany Baker. Loved it.
Also read "Zero Hour" by David Baldacci. A great read as well.
....on to the next!
