Cindy, I love all those gorgeous vintage tea pictures!! We're thinking of having an Annie Sloan Tea Party/workshop and those images are just too perfect. Thank you for posting our Everything Annie Sloan button on your sidebar. I hope all your friends and followers come on over to see what it's all about. It's truly the most magical product - we all love it so much and want to share it with everyone!! Thanks again, I'm now your newest follower!

Thought I would pop by and say congrats on winning Cindy's giveaway of the Boho bracelet. How ironic that you both have the same name. I see you are in OH -- my mom lives in Millersburg and I have an uncle and two aunts in Wooster, so visit there when we head to the States for the summer (we didn't go this year though). hope your day is great. Tammy

Thank you so much, Tammy! Yes, it IS ironic about our names! I just discovered Cindy's blog and gorgeous artwork a couple months ago. So excited that I won the Boho bracelet! Yes, I'm familier with the Millersburg area of Ohio - it's a lovely area. I'm further north - near Lake Erie. So nice of you to stop by and congratulate me! Have a great week ahead!
