Last Chance to Enter 52 FLEA's First Year Anniversary Give-Back!



I wanted to share this special gift that sweet girlfriend Paula gave me last week...



Do you see this set of three white vellum covered books on Paula's mantle?
... photo courtesy of Carole...



Well, now they are mine! Or at least three others, similarly covered are mine!
We girls have been admiring stacks of these beautifully covered books at one of our favorite stores...Taken For Granite...
The last time Paula visited...they were on sale...
...she scored big!
...and of course, being Paula....she shared with Evi and me!
I just love them!




It was such a beautiful weekend...the sun shone both days...all day long.
I'm a different person when the sun shines!



We had a lovely evening ...



... and I hope you did too!



Here is my Lisa Leonard original....the captured heart necklace....



I am so pleased with this piece...it is meaningful...
...yet casual and fun...just like my Dan and Kate!

Don't forget Monday at 6 pm EST is the deadline for entering
52 FLEA's first anniversary Give-Back!

You've got to be in it to win it! Wouldn't a $50 gift certificate to Lisa's online shop be wonderful?
...and don't forget....also included in this Give-Back is a copy of the new Jeanne D'Arc Living Magazine and that ever so special edition of Somerset Life!

Good Luck my friends!
Good night!
:)

In a world where there can be so much decay and ugliness it is wonderful to see your lovely photographs. I appreciate your skill in composition, balancing textures and combining colors. Maybe you have found your next career!
I would be delighted to be entered in your contest.
