goodbye and thank you

Around the House
Trickery. Trickery. I'm so guilty. But in my defense, this is a goodbye - if only for a week. I'm heading up to North Carolina to (finally after many attempts) finish clearing out my parent's home. So goodbye for a brief spell. And if you happen to drive by, Oreo is our protector and watch cat. (what about Sophie? You'll see)

As for the thank you...

A Special Thank You
I rarely win anything - so much so that I don't even enter giveaways. But I couldn't help trying for this lovely sketchbook and handmade cover created by talented artist and seamstress, Sofia from Paisley Farm. Lovely indeed.

A Special Thank You
Even the package was beautifully wrapped. Thank you sweet Sofia.
Psst...her lovely items can be found here.

A Special Thank You
Dear Sophie at her finest. Watchdog? Sophie?
