Red Purse

For the Everyday Matters Challenge. For some, it is shoes...for me, it is purses....I can NEVER have too many, and I am always searching for the ULTIMATE handbag....but this is the current love...my Red Purse. I spent way too much money on it, but I saw the colour, and was smitten. It is the kind of leather that gets softer and softer....and it holds all of my important items, like my red cell phone!

Books I Have Read....

I have added a new feature to this blog...those who know me well know that I am an avid reader. I have added a new feature to my sidebar, of books that I have read, and LOVED. For the moment, I will spare you my reviews, except to say that any books you see here are books that I adore, and would happily recommend.

100 THINGS ABOUT ME

This is a journal that I began about a month ago. I am listing 100 facts about me. I am half way through this project...it is really sparking some wonderful memories! I challenge you to do the same, whether it be a visual journal like mine, or a written journal, or a point-form list. Let me know how you do...I would love to hear about it!
