What an honor!

My Dinner at the Hamlet blog has been featured on the front page of my friend Ginger's site, Magical Holiday Home (www.magicalholidayhome.com), including the picture of me from the blog! Thanks Ginger!

Check out Dinner at the Hamlet for an update on the family breakfast last Saturday!

I hope everyone is staying warm. It's been so cold here that we've had a fire in the fireplace every night for several nights. Now we're almost out of wood again. Our whole family used to go to the farm and cut wood by the dump truck load. We'd take hotdogs and chips and cookies and as soon as we got there, we built a huge fire. Then we'd roast the hotdogs for lunch. It was so good. With everyone working, it didn't take all that long to cut, split and load the wood, then everyone shared it. Good times!

I will be hosting my first jewelry show next week-well, the first one in 16 or so years! I am very excited about this opportunity and really hope it goes well. I love jewelry, as everyone who knows me knows, and I love this company. They unconditionally guarantee their products. Gotta love that!

My brothers used to tell me all the time that I didn't have to wear all of my jewelry at one time, and my standard reply was "you do if you want to look this good". I still feel the same way. Now I'm going to get paid for it! What a great country we live in!

Here's a picture of my latest project. It's really hard to see in this picture, but it says "family". I need to get better letters...I have my eye on a big (2" maybe?) set of rubber stamps...I'm thinking they need to live at my house.

Til tomorrow!

Good Morning Cathy,
I thought I would drop by and catch up with what has been going on in your neck of the woods. It has been cold here as well since last weekend. Last Saturday was especially cold and I was in and out of it most of the day. "GOOD LUCK" on your Jewelry Show next week. I know you are excited about it. Do you by any chance have some pictures of the jewelry? I am a big Jewelry Fanatic myself. LOL. I wear just about everything I have all the time too. It's my jewelry and I'll wear it the way I want to wear it. LOL. I love your latest project. It is beautiful. I do see FAMILY on it, but I do believe the letters could be a tad darker or larger like you said. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours. Sounds like alot of good memories were made cutting the wood and roasting hot dogs.
