GHOSTS ATE THE DESSERT!

Most of you probably know that Lady Katerhine of Lady Katherine Tea Parlor has had major surgery and will not be blogging for some time. She consented to allow me to send cards to her, since I have a Post Office Box address, and she didn't want to publish her street address. If you would like to send Katherine a card, please send it in care of me at the address shown on my sidebar. I will then be fowarding cards to Katherine. I hope we have an update on her condition soon. ADDED (10/22/09, 4:00 p.m.) Susan at BNOTP just talked to Katherine's husband. The surgery went well, and she may get to come home from the hospital on Monday. She will still have a very long recuperation period and will be unable to blog or visit blogs, so please do send cards to her. I am still sending cards to Andrew, so please keep sending his cards in care of me. I know all of us are still sending cards to Amy, and her mother, Debbie has posted about the joy the cards bring to Amy. What a wonderful bunch of folks we have in our corner of Blogville! Thank you for being such a caring group.






I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.





















































My thanks to all who entered my drawing. I DO wish I could send something to every one of you! I used the Random Number Generator to draw the winners.

This was soooo adorable!!!! I would love to come play in all your storage closets = you have more things for every occasion!!! I love it!

And I'm sorry about Katherine. I hope she will be alright - it sounds so serious. I pray she is better very soon.

loved your comment about the FTC!! It made me laugh. You saying you could be swayed by a blogger who was being paid. Really? I doubt that!!! You seem a litte too sharp for that. Anyway - it was a great comment. Now I am the one going long here. sorry@@@

Maureen said...
