To bear hug, your style is oh so Adorable, my friend. Still thinking about the book, but it must be a good read. The cover is pure happiness.
I'm off for some rapid cycling on my purple Bloom bike, school is out, weekend is here, school friends are coming over, my table is about to change into a boat.. I bought my favorite magazine this morning and I so so hope to be able to dive into it. When will our next mag exchange be, Koralee?
Tons of bear hugs to you xoxoxoxoxoxo

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Most precious Koralee,

I wonder if you know how much your visits mean to me...these sweet comments that are "just because..." Oh am I glad it is Friday. We have much to do with report cards, but it is almost over, the weekend is here, and I will embrace your sweet words of encouragement to never forget to take those moments of calm with my favorite cup and a GOODIE right next to me....Have yourself a MAGNIFICENT WEEKEND and your retreat, oh dear, HAVE A SPLENDID TIME!!!!!!!!


Susan said...

INDULGE...UNPLUG...I began my week-end a little early {another **snow day**} by sleeping in until 12:20 this afternoon! I couldn't believe my eyes when I got up and looked at the clock! I haven't slept that late since I was a teenager! {There's NOTHING like a lo-o-o-ng winter's nap!} :)
I'm thinking that pretty pink book bearing a Cheshire Cat grin must be Alice in Wonderland!?! Wherever did you find a pink copy?
Thank you for Friday pretties, but your blog is pretty EVERYDAY! (((BEAR HUGS))) to YOU, sweet friend!

Unknown said...

Beautiful inspirations as always! Happy Friday hun, seize the weekend:-)

The Red Umbrella said...

Dearest Koralee, Your blog is always so bright, cheery and uplifting! I L-O-V-E the colors and the pretties!!!
Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog and your care and concern for Sherrie. We are Celebrating those clear scans! So Happy!!! Have a wonderful weekend.
Love, Joyce
P.S. I gave several bear hugs to several people that I love. :)

Marilyn Miller said...

Oh yes, it is the Cheshire Cat for sure. The muffins cups are the cutest! Now I will be looking for similar ones. I will be sewing pink this weekend and having fun. Thanks!
