Disconnecting for the Summer

This is my last post for the next couple of months.   I am going to write a novel!  I hope to, anyway, unless I get Writer's Block or something   :)    It will be a romance suspense set in Britain during the 1930s.

So I am "disconnecting" from this blog for the summer  --- but please come back and visit this fall.  I plan to jump back into my artwork and etsy shops after I get the novel out of my system...

The first day lilies bloomed yesterday.  They are called "day" lilies with good reason!  By the time I got out there with my camera this afternoon, they were all withered and gone except this one.

But that's OK, because there are a number of them in the bed, and they will be going off like rockets for awhile, now that they've started.

Have a really great summer!  See you later!

The Winner (s) !

This afternoon I wrote everyone's name who had left a comment for the Giveaway on a post-it note, folded it, and placed it in an empty yogurt container.  Shook it up so it was completely random.  N picked out a name for me. (as you can see, he covered his eyes so as to be completely fair  :)

 And the winner of the Giveaway is...

Debbie Nolan !
Congratulations, Debbie!   :)

As soon as I hear from you, I will be mailing your item and your necklace out to you!

Actually, since I had some people who couldn't figure out how to leave a comment on this blog, I have also done a smaller drawing for them  :)  and so the second giveaway winner is....

Bonnie Thompson!
