  9. I am so happy to see your Soul Food is back. How I miss my LPs; loved Nat King Cole. Still can't find Prairie Style magazine on the shelves around here. I am determined to get it; looking into subscribing on line.
    Bonne Semaine Monique.

  15. You always make the most beautiful collages! White is just so restful. I have to laugh though - I took my 7 year old granddaughter furniture shopping with me the other day and everything that was light or white she said, "Just imagine that with chocolate covered hands!" She said it over and over again - what a wise little woman!!!

  16. That made me smile:) I like white furniture as you know and have white sheets for the 2 yr old and 4 yr old..But they wash up beautifully in the machine!
    IKEA EKTORP..Like so much..affordable and adorable..I kept my other sunroom set almost 25 yrs..so it was time.

    She is wise..Don't think I have a grandson that could imagine chocolate hands:) She is precious!

    Susan.. he is missing part of his chest..:( But if you are craving your childhood memories as I sometimes do..I can send him to you on a journey~
