Hi Marylin
yours is a beautiful site. The giveaways remind me of my grandmother's trunk - ribbons and treasures and old papers. Hmmm - the things I could do with those...

MaryLiz said...

Thank you for the post about your kitty. My three cats are always very upset when I shut them out of the studio and they try to sneak past me whenever they can. But I know how they love to find "toys" and take them out to play with/eat.

Sue said...
