Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and good wishes. Your comments about my life and blog humble me and give me the feeling that what I'm doing is worthwhile. My posting may be inconsistent for awhile, but I will post when I can. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You fill my heart with your love and kindness.
The heart shape has always seemed like a whimsy, but it now has special meaning for me. The two blue pieces above are from my tiny collection of keepsake hearts. The lapis lazuli/silver pin was purchased when I wore jewelry more than I do now (a long time ago) and the crystal heart was a recent gift from my dear friend Shelley.
Because of all your wonderful book suggestions my reading list grew longer than you can imagine. Oh my, so many of you share my taste in books. On my sidebar is a list of books I've read this year and on my about page (scroll waaay down) you'll find last years list. The Help was suggested more often in the comments than any other book and, if you haven't read it, I highly recommend it, too.
Now, onto the winners!
Kelly-Ann is the winner of the Malabrigo Sock
Penny is the winner of the Treasure Ball
Cindy in Happy Valley is the winner of the Sublime Kid Mohair
Karen is the winner of the Manos Silk
Thank you each and everyone of you for commenting!
