  1. I just caught up on some of the posts I've missed and you sure have been a busy girl. Black is "in" too. and especially this time of year!
    Love the reflexors. Laura bought some at M.B the last time. Your booth looked great! Love the pumpkin with the boa...tres chic!

    i wanted to tell you I finally got to find my June 01 issue of CL and I have always loved that shed. George who never wants me to tell him about any of my blog friends even took interest...and that says a lot!!! well more to me then you I guess:)
    ANyways it's fanastic and I don't know what I like more the outside or the inside???? I'll have to ask Laura if she's ever seen it.
    Well I'll stop gushing over you now. George told me not to....it's embarrassing!!!lol

    I think I have a few posts to catch up on here also.. you've been a busy bee!!
    Well I always like the shiny things. Think I like the shovel too!! strange... not sure why!! I guess it would be good if one's shovelling jobs only required a shovel that small.. haha Have a great week. x Julie
