  • Patricia says:

    What an interesting extraordinary blog stop ..Can’t say enough nice things about it.Loved the way Andrea ‘s page had the window effect, Elena incorporated the clocks so very nicely along with the flowers in the corner. The lace effect done by Jennifer was very pleasing and dainty. Maja’s ribbon and ribbon flowers reminded me of when my mother used to make ribbon roses. Nancy went with the neat modern owl — so appealing, And Rachelle’s garden was simply extraordinary. Thanks for all the inspiration.
