happy new year's eve

Share a glass, 
some sweets 
and
 in some traditions 
herring at midnight... 
I'll wait for our own tradition
ToonMan's special New Year Day's breakfast.

i heart aims

I bought one of Aim's (Big Blue Barn West) fabulous designs, 
I am not showing it because its a gift. 
BUT 
what I am showing you is a gift she sent me ...
 a pair of earrings:
fleur de lis
Aims and I adore New Orleans so these are very special to me.  
She also knows my love of hearts.  
I love hearts.  
Look at those little hearts, are they not twee?  
I love them, 
they are very small, made of material like little poufs of quilted confetti .. 
I love them and I love Aims. 
 Go visit her blog, 
she isnt just a pretty face, 
she designs jewelry 
and 
writes .. oh how she writes ..

see for yourself.
you will thank me.
