  4. Oh, how lovely that you are having spring, we are in the middle of a damp and dreary autumn here in Scotland. Love the pyrex - always good to add to the collection!

  5. The inscriptions are wonderful. I bought a nice old grammar book at the flea market that was inscribed from May 16th. 1864!

  22. Hi! I just discovered your blog. I have been reading your older posts. It is so unusual to see you in sandals with your gardenias blooming at Christmas time. Here in Tennessee USA the temperature is in the low 40's, the trees are bare, and the children are hoping for snow.
