Long, long ago and far, far away (from Colorado at any rate),
Susie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage
had a giveaway. And I won! Well her ditsy friend (that would be me) didn't even know she had won, so dear Sue had to contact me to tell me that she needed my address to mail me the book.
She mailed it out, and I received it Thanksgiving week; which was the most opportune time. I had been cooking up a storm and on my feet all day when the doorbell rang, and there was my gift from Sue.
Now there is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down to peruse a good decorating book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, "Waterside Cottages" by Barbara Jacksier.

But then, of course, I had to finish up Thanksgiving and move right into the Christmas season. Now, Sue's friend is not only ditsy, but negligent also in thanking Sue for this great giveaway.

Be sure to go by Rabbit Run Cottage
and meet Sue if you don't already know her. She is the best - the type of person you wished you lived next door to.

Thanks, Sue!!

That looks like a good book to relax with. Susie has some Christmas pictures up and her home is just so cute and pretty!

I'm getting ready to do a post on Tom Snyder so I'll get the book out of my luggage and add the picture to the end of the post on Tom...
