suffice it to say i lost track. thank you all for flying by and tossing sparkle!

Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.

    Hi Claudia!

    I haven’t commented in a while, but rest assured, I always read your blog. I’m catching up on your posts. First of all, Vignettes is one of my favorites shops in the world. I love Lori and everyone who works there. I so wish I could have been there when you were. Isn’t it a fabulous place?

    I do have a dollhouse that I am in the process of restoring. I loved your post on the competition.

    Thanks so much for all the beauty you show us.

    The amount of beauty that passes through these blogs just amazes me. I completely understand and fall down the rabbit hole often myself.
    And…the chair and sofa frames…oh, my! I’ll be thinking about what I’d do with them all day!
