Dear Koralee.. you have lots of news and wonderful things to share! I adore the tabletop garden.. I have a green thumb, too and that's right up my alley! I have some vintage enamelware in storage in my shed, I need to rout it out and enjoy it! I'm so glad we're friends and I look forward to seeing your pretty photos into the next year.

Oh Koralee, so much to tell, so much to comment on....

First of all, your new header is FANTASTIC! The blues, well, you know how I feel about this color and YOU! Your lovely winter garden is the perfect combination of hearty and texture-filled plants that are suitable for an enamel bowl! HOW CLEVER!

Then, I can see you being spoiled by all the family and friends that love you so! I AM ONE OF THEM! However, being gone left me empty-handed in my gift giving this year! I have so much to share, but guess what? We came home late Friday night, to a lot of snow. The next day, we had to shovel and normally, I'm good with that. But this time - I PULLED MY BACK! Oh Koralee, I am in such pain and I may have to call on the chiropractor today. Yesterday I could hardly walk!

But I am sitting here sipping my tea in OUR honor, loving every memory of your kindness and creativity. I too have noticed a large decrease in numbers of comments over the last two years, but I will continue with blogging since it offers me a format to engage music, visuals and writing. But I will follow you FOREVER on FB!

Thank you for YOU after all these years. Sending you warm hugs and healing for a new 2014! BISOUS, Anita
