  4. I second Cathy on that and I mourn the loss of these beautiful books. I have been away on my adoption have missed a couple of posts. I am enjoying all of your treasures. What a wonderful way of displaying them through your blog.

  8. Wow I did a post about your beautiful studio last year, and now I've stumbled upon this blog by chance and loved it (without realizing it was yours). Small (internet) world.

  10. Your blog is really cool. I have a strange collection of silica gels, the things that you find in shoe boxes to keep them dry. I have around 300 of them.
