Oh my dearest dutchess, where are you? I have a tear in my heart; your words are so lovely and your references are so dear. What a great soul you are. Bisous, Anita

Good morning again dearest!
I have a question: how did you get those little falling stars on your post? The Tea Rat has been hunting down some ways to add falling snow on my blog, but he doesn't know where to begin! When you have a moment, let us know. How is the weather in the Netherlands and how is our little mouse fairing?

Oops, we found how to make the little snow flakes fall, but how ever do you get those chunky stars to fall from the sky? Just wondering.

Tale of Two Cities os one of my favourites and Sydney Carton one of my literary heroes. I still sing Magic Moments to myself sometimes:) I love the little stars falling down your blog pages:)

Oh my precious! You are right!! A dove....do you know that I have just the right bird....and I am actually in the process of making you a "Precious Little Thing with Wings" in my kitchen. I am gluing and glittering away just for you. We have a love for birds, I can see! AND I LOVE YOUR BACKGROUND! Bisous, Anita
