Okay, wow. Laura Ashley is dead? She probably died before I knew of her stuff. Kind of sad. But I love that you continue on with your beauties. Don't die. I'll be so mad. LOL! You've got years and years to entertain us. Keep up the good work!

I love visiting my MIL and catching up on her midwest living mags. I don't know that I could live there, but I LOVE visiting!

Interesting little factoids.

I need to find a photo of the quilt I made from three Laura Ashley bride's maid dresses I wore in the 80's....If I recall correctly we all looked a like sofas with legs in the wedding photos - big floral patterns no sane woman would every wear! It felt good to take a scissors to the lot!

Aaahhh! Sounds heavenly! Enjoy your time away. Charlie Brown without his stripe? Nah!

Any ideas for what we can do for our Tonya? I wish I could be there to help her out.
