which is covered with flowering buds and vintage charm

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Oh I am smiling so BIG here on the east coast... to think your magazine will travel all the way over the ocean to Ria's!
I think I heard her joyous cheer from here!
I know how much she loves her magazines, so she must be thrilled!
I just received my copy of WW Cook yesterday! I will make some tea later tonight and read your article!
Your springtime purse is so pretty! I stopped over to littleteawagon {what a great name for a shop} and saw such darling things. Love the granny square garland! oh my so cute!

Thinking of how lucky we are to have such generous stretches of personal time during the school year. Hang in there ~ just two more days!
{My break comes during Easter week and ends on Easter Sunday}

Have a wonderful day tomorrow ...
xoxo * Maria

YAAAAAAWNNNNN!!! GOOD MORNING KORALEE! Oh dearest, we both are feeling tired from I am SURE is the time change and the fact that spring is taking its sweet time, at least for US HERE! However, I am OFF today and I had woken up at 2:30am, but I made a cup of CAMOMILE tea and that put me back to bed with a smile on my face!! I bet you are doing a happy dance, knowing that you will have two glorious weeks OFF!!! I know you are going to create and relax and milk every moment for what it's worth....that's my girl!!! Thank you dearest, for always popping in to make my day. You Canadian friends, YOU ARE JUST AMAZING! May GOD BLESS YOUR DAY DEAREST!!! Anita
