HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! MUSICA first (we have our priorities) ~ I was going to announce the winner of our teapot now, the tea tin and Fine Romance book ~ and then I thought, “it’s the weekend, let’s make sure everyone had a chance to sign up.” Right? SO, if you haven’t yet, this is your chance! Scroll down to the next post to read all about our Giveaway, leave me a comment, and Good Luck! And P.S., Yes, more Swedish Hearts are on their way to our web store!
But while I’m here, I think we should get a little fun out of life! One of our Girlfriends asked to see a close-up of Ray and Paul’s Terrier collection that was glimpsed in one of the photos in the post below . . . so here they are! On a shelf in her kitchen. (Ray’s version of Beatrix Potter figurines!) When we went to visit Ray and Paul in England, Joe and I brought the little dog on the far left. He’s made of iron and very heavy for his size. Aren’t little collections like this wonderful? No two alike!
It’s not in my DNA to do such a short post, I’ll be back soon, but here’s a little food for thought for your Sunday . . .
Weather-wise we’ve had it all this winter on Martha’s Vineyard ~ sheets of ice on the kitchen porch, sleet and snow that “chill and bite,” wild winds beating at the windows ~ the temperature fluctuates wildly: yesterday it was 20° with a misty ice-fog in the air, the foghorn blew all day; this morning it’s 40°, grey and raining. Cars drive by, I hear their tires slapping the road. Joe made us a fire; he’s reading the paper in front of it with crackle and pop and ashes falling, tick of wind-up clock, rustle of pages turning; Foreign Correspondent with Joel McCrea is on the TV in my studio; Jack is giving himself a bath on my art table, Girl is curled on the back of Joe’s couch, and I’m saying hello to you and getting ready to spend the day painting; wending our way through life ~ “God’s in his heaven, all’s right with the world” here in Smallville.♥
O’ Winter, King of the MOST Intimate of Delights . . .
And tonight, Girlfriends? For frosting on the cake and “continuous small pleasures?” Downton Abbey! Be there or be square! Wob you, Me.♥
