MY FRIEND

Here I was, standing in the huge Borders in Burlington Vermont, when I finally got to see the latest copy of Somerset Life. I had looked for it at home, but none of the bookstores seemed to have it. I opened to read all about my friend ( and yours, I hope), Clarice at StoryBook Woods. Clarice was such a help to me when I set up this blog; she is very patient with technophobes! I am sure I was smirking as I looked at the house I had visited this summer and the beautiful secluded fairytale setting ( how many times did I drive by the driveway and not even see it??). I wanted to shout to everyone around " I know this talented woman, I even went to Storybook Woods", but alas, for once I was quiet. But I smirked, oh yes I did. I certainly hope you get a chance to read the article and run over to congratulate Clarice.

Later,
Janet

  1. Well first Janet, everyone drives by our driveway and does not realize it there (I just had blog visitors, the other day and had to stand at the bottom of the driveway). So your normal. But I am so glad you got to see the article. I am pretty thrilled with it. I am glad I was able to make you smirk xoxoxo Clarice

  4. How wonderful! I am going to go check out Clarice's blog.

    I also think you should paint your fireplace....it would look great then!

    And, it is my sister from Naples Fl that is visiting. You are right about time on her hands...you must be feeling it too.
    Hugs,

  5. Ooo, I'll have to go look for that...

    I agree about painting the fireplace, and I also think that Manuela's suggestion about beefing up the mantel is spot on. That is the first thing I noticed (before the brick) when I looked at the pic.

    Can't wait to see what you do with it!
    xoxo,
