Yesterday morning I sleepily came into my kitchen and headed straight to the coffee (as I do every morning) and was surprised to find a dozen beautiful roses from my sweet husband. How thoughtful of him to place the flowers right beside the coffee pot! I think he knows me well. I hope your Valentines Day was just as lovely as mine.
The winner of my drawing is #25 Nancy~Fete et Fleur Congratulations Nancy, I will send the book to you just let me know your address! I have to say "Thank You" for all of the comments you left regarding what you like to buy when shopping online. Overwhelming response was VINTAGE! I knew we were all kindred spirits! You love everything from old china to paper. "Handmade" was mentioned a lot which always has a special place in my heart. The goal for the online shop is to offer a unique selection of vintage and vintage inspired goods with a sprinkle of handmade creations. Also, I believe even though you are not shopping "in person" the personal touch can still be relayed through whatever you purchase. Great packaging with attention to care and detail mean so much to the total online experience. Because I so appreciate all of you and your kind help I am giving you this vintage ballerina picture! Just right click on the photo and save it to your computer. You can print the photo out and paste it to some card stock. Add some ribbon for a gift tag or hang off your memory boards! Please enjoy and use to decorate your life.
Lastly, I have to say how my heart aches for the tragic loss that was suffered yesterday at another campus shooting. What is going on? Can we not send our children to school and not worry about their safety? As a mother of two sons that are in College, now I have the constant fear that some deranged person is going to come into one of their lecture halls and start shooting. How sad that we have to say a prayer for the safety of our own children when all they are trying to do is get a better education and live the American dream.
