    Cheryl, I didn't know you like Avon books I have tons of them if you ever want any I can send them your way. LOL

    Meljprincess I see you put your hint in for your authographed book, good one. LOL

  10. Yes, Brenda, I love Avon watches and costume jewelry. I have tons of the old stuff as well as vintage Sarah Coventry and Monet. Recently a dear friend gave me vintage jewelry that belonged to her mother-in-law. I displayed the pieces in old Ball canning jars - the ones with glass lids and wires - and have them on an old cabinet in my bedroom. Pretty, but also handy to see the colors and get out to wear.

  11. 1. A trip to Staples.
    2. A cat.
    3. A good book and a cup of something hot and a blanket on the couch.
    4. Church bells on a winter night.
    5. Longer days after winter solstice.

  12. Good day! I could have sworn I've been to your blog before but after going through many of the articles I realized it's new to me.
    Anyways, I'm definitely pleased I came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking
    back often!
