1. What a lovely list of 4 + 1. Your gifts are beautiful and I can picture your smiling face as you open them. I suspect you will be “over the moon” with #3. Some friends got to see him when he was here in town and felt touched to their souls.

    • I thought of you as I unwrapped that journal. The gift tag alone is a brilliant example of thinking creatively! And as for the journal itself…I’m thinking about how I might incorporate some of my own ephemera on the inside pages.

      Whatever happened to our phone chat? LOL, I think we got our wires crossed. Let’s make it happen…sooner than later! You’ve posted about lots of exciting things going on these days, and I wanna hear more!

  2. So glad you loved your present! The wrapping paper is a scanned image of vintage crochet afghans–only special people get it! The gift tag is a snap to make–a paint chip, a photo, rub-on transfer letters or sticker letters, a couple of embellishments like buttons or whatever. Scribble away!

    • Thanks again, Candace, for this amazing gift. I’m a lucky girl, thanks to that most awesome cat of yours, Master Winchester.

      I’m a bit teary-eyed about ripping that beautiful wrapping paper. I wish now that I hadn’t been so eager to open the package. But I’ll save the scraps in a safe place, and plan to incorporate some of them into my (beautiful! covet-worthy!) journal.

  3. I love the way you matched the scarf with the bunny. Thank you for displaying it. I had so much fun making it. It reminded me of petit fours in wool; something special and sweet, just like its recipient.


  4. I love what you did to your hubby. That is so funny. LOL…. Good job, Melodye!

    Congrats on winning the drawing and I’m so jealous that you get to hear the Dalai Lama speak. That would be a truly incredible experience. I hope you enjoy it!!!

    Totally off-topic… I learned that PJ’s Abbey has been sold and will be converted into a Mexican food place now. Boo on that. But I also learned that it’s kinda haunted and has some scary stuff going on inside! 🙂

    • *preens* Yeah, I was pretty proud of myself. 😉

      I was shocked by the news about PJ’s Abbey. I hadn’t heard anything about that until you posted this comment! I’m all teary-eyed, just thinking about it, but you can bet I’ll take full advantage of this next month to visit as often as I can. Thanks for letting me know.
