Hi, Laurie! Just catching up on some commenting since I normally visit on my phone. I usually don't have time to enter passwords, etc., on my phone! Do you do that, too? Anyway, I so enjoyed these ideas today. You know I love that pillow! The Coke bottles are pretty adorable, too. :-) Thanks for the inspiration!
