I entered a give away as well as posting one. It is for a charm pack and a pattern book. You might want to check it out here because if you were lucky enough to win mine and then win that one, then you would have a pattern book to help you with your 100 charms. Hope to post a pic of the100 post anniversary prize maybe tomorrow. I have some cutting to do though...

Train station in a little village in Wales. This village has the longest name in the world. It means "The church of Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the fierce whirlpool and the church of Tysilio by the red cave". I'm sure glad I was not the conductor who had to call out the next stop at this junction.
My maternal grandmother was a Gladstone and my paternal grandmother was a MacGregor so I was always on the look out for those names while touring. Below is one of the times I was not so impressed to see the Gladstone name. (click on the photo to enlarge to see what I mean)
You've heard it said, "Somedays you're the statue, and somedays you're the seagull".
Today I wish you a "statue" kind of a day.
