OK I know I said I was taking a week off to get things done...but I realized this is the second Monday in a row I didn't do anything about my brilliant make over Monday plan. Of course I am 3 weeks behind on my 52Q Challenge and trying to lose weight on my own isn't going as scheduled, so I plan on taking action this week. Meantime, I will leave you with some pictures of the book I sent out to Lady Jane as the winner of my 100th post contest in January. PS Say a prayer for her and her Mom as she is very caught up right now in caring for her.
Before the photos I must say Thank You to a dear Best Blogging Friend I met at Silver Bella last year. Jodie of Everything Vintage gave away a beautiful box of vintage goodness for her 100th post contest. Alas, I was not the winner but generous southern lady that she is, she is sending EVERYONE that commented a little "sumthin sumthin" just for commenting! She is as sweet and fun in person as she is on her blog. Go visit if you haven't already.
I made this little book for ephemera and ideas as my 100th post give away. I love making these so much,getting to play with all the old and new bits and pieces that go into each one. Some day I will make one to keep as I have a hard time saying good-bye to them. The two ladies on the front are my grandma Florence and her sister Clara, I am assuming they are dressed for Halloween. Enjoy my little book and the lovely shadows cast by the January sun through the window.
I hope you all have a beautiful and productive week. (It is going to be in the 60's here, the snow has already melted and I am ready for spring, although it will probably drop back down and we can't rule out more snow before that happens. This is Cincinnati after all.) I will see you next Monday.
Have a momentous Monday, P.
