I want to thank “High-Heeled Foot in the Door” for mentioning me in her great post today about the folks a DeBois Textiles. I hope that they’re not too overwhelmed by all of the bloggers who are arriving en masse at their doors to find the great fabrics! If you’re not reading High Heeled, you should be! She’s a great designer and very talented. Plus, she’s got the funniest header by the talented PVE Designs, Patricia von Essche!
Completely random, but I saw this image of Prince William on his first trip representing his grandmother, HM Queen Elizabeth, II at the opening of the new supreme court building in Wellington, Australia. He met with some of the Maori natives of the country and participated in this traditional greeting. I think this is the sweetest image, and his willingness to do things like this is the best memorial to his mother, Diana.More randomness… For the first time since 1949, the “Poe Toaster” failed to appear at Edgar Allan Poe’s grave in the early hours of today, Poe’s 201st birthday. The Poe Toaster traditionally leaves a bottle of cognac and three roses on the grave. The identity of the Toaster has been a closely kept secret and people are kept away from the grave until the Toaster has come and gone. The Toaster is one of the traditions that makes Baltimore a special place. I am scrambling to get ready for my visitor from Wales later this week, so have lots to do before he arrives. Posts may be a bit brief this week!
