Things I Found & Heard At The Party

First, Heartfelt Thanks

You have all been so kind in your messages regarding the passing of my Godfather.  It's so nice to know that people care and understand how sad it is to lose a person you love. Thank you all very much for taking the time to read my 'Ode To Bo' post and for your thoughts and prayers. It means a lot.

Happier Things

Back to the party. I really enjoy 'cleaning up' after the link parties on the Muse. So much to look through and discover.  Here's my picks from the current Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It Link Party.

A vintage pink and white lace wedding dress. Simple lines and classic femininity from founditgreat.

Very cool upcycled Umbrella Man silhouette by Cupcake Gangster. Who would have thought a upcycled can could look so suave?

As usual, the variety of things I find at the link party never ceases to amaze me. What about you? Did you find something you love at the party?

Giveaway Winner

Drum roll please.....................Laura from Tillie Tulip has won the Barn Rye archival print! Congratulations! I'll be in touch for your mailing information.

Have a great day everyone. I'm playing catchup today......clearing my desk and mailing sold items out (and remailing one that the post office decided to send back for insufficient address even though it's addessed properly- annoying!).

That's it here. See you on the flip side,

  7. Well, well - found you again, having read Debbi's blog about you and wondered if you were one and the same who had that smashing conversation a few weeks' back!

    Trust you are well - despite your sadness. It happens to us all, alas: I'm just a little nearer the end than you lot are, but life blogging etc is amazingly restorative!
