October's Give-Away Apron

November snuck up, but I didn't want another day to go by without announcing October's Apron Winner.  Congratulations to Linda from "The Puddle Pond" blog!  Please contact me with your information where to send your gift.

Now, sadly and with heavy heart, I will be ending my blog.  I feel I've neglected it and all my lovely followers, so after 9 years, I will say good bye.  I will, however, try to stop in on your blogs from time to time and keep in touch.  Thank you for all your support, especially during the darkest time of my life when we lost our daughter--you all were a lifeline to hold on to.

As Shakespeare wrote..."parting is such sweet sorrow."  Have a wonderful holiday and a blessed new year.  Susan

    1. Gosh, you're making me feel so guilty when I was already feeling guilty of not putting the attention to this project. Maybe just a good long rest and a regroup. XOXO

Thank you for all te recipes, aprons, stories, and pictures. I have a special card made of paper yellow roses... And I have not one, but two beautiful aprons. All the very best, Dear Heart. You will be missed.

    1. It was a hard decision because my Kelly set this up and it's like losing her all over again. I may try to revamp things next year and come back, but for now, I need an emotional rest. Thank you for following, XOXO
