Happy day friends, how’s your Monday?  Can you believe it’s almost February?  Good gracious time’s a flyin’ by.  I couldn’t let this month end without sharing just a few of my favorite projects, images, and articles found online. 

I love citrus in January, especially Heather’s mandarins.

Greetings!  Oh what a week, are you caught up in the pre-Thanksgiving scramble?  Juggle juggle, balance, multitask, and a little more juggling, right?  Whew!  I’m looking forward to next week’s down time, just to sit around with family and friends, bake pies, peel potatoes, sample wines, and eat eat eat.  And maybe do some more eating.

Announcing the 3 winners of the Purple Lemon Designs giveaway!  Congratulations to:

#22: Kristin "Love the Medium Circles-n-Circles, which could be used all year round. I just moved to a new home so this would be great!"
