I tell you, when I got into blogging years ago, I never knew or expected the connections one would make. Over the years I have met many, set up email conversations, and text some, maybe even a clandestine or two. I have some of the best blogging friends who touch me so...and not always in the way you're thinking! Months ago, I had won Ms Scarlet's part of the Fricking Green Elf Shorts Competition. More on that coming up soon. But as the winner, she sent me some of her handiwork. You see, Ms. Scarlet is a very talented and accomplished Calligrapher. Is that a word? I have always thought her work was fun. Not only does she incorporate her calligraphy skills, into stationery and art, but uses multi- media material such as various papers, vintage pictures, maps, little quips, I don't know what all, but then makes a collage of it all. Well, when I received my letter from her, I was so amazed by it, I knew I wanted it out to be displayed. This week, I finally found some frames to keep them safe!!!

SCARLET & DEEDLES
I hated to blur out the address, but you know the paparazzi can be relentless trying to find the new location of the Casa du Borghese. And I adore Scarlet even more because she was crazy enough to even included the Mistress Borghese in it!!!!
I don't know if Ms. Scarlet purposely found this map with Chalfont on it or it was complete coincidence, but when I recently moved from Bucks County, my fair hamlet I resided in was Chalfont, and was named so by William Penn, after his wife's town in England. Now this was so cool. I can't thank Ms. Scarlet enough for this lovely treasure and the time it took to create it. I tressure stuff like this. You should check out Ms.Scarlet here.
Then this week my ever-faithful friend the Duchess Deedles really tickled my funny bone. And boy...does she know her Mistress!!!! She fore warned me to be on the lookout for a housewarming gift. And did it warm my house.... and cockles.
Glass tumblers with recipes for hang- overa recipes, and Gin based cock-a-tails, with the recipes right on the side of the glasses. It may shock some to know, I had not owned these yet. Now I have more cock-a-tails to try!!!! They are so cool, and one will be broken in tonight when I do a salmon and corn on the cob on the grill. But the bottom of the glasses really gave me a chuckle!!!!
Thats what style takes like? Could Deedles be implying I have style by drinking gin? I knew someone around here had good taste! Deedles, you have no idea how they made my day on Monday. Bottoms up indeed!
A huge thank -you too you both for your thoughtfulness. I have the best of friends and readers. Even if they do try to swipe my houseboys.
