Hi all - well, here we go! I'm so glad that so many of you had a positive reaction to doing
Christmas in July
Here is the prize for Week 1:
On the left, a tea bag carrier - yep, this little pouch lets you put up to three teabags inside, then you can zip it up and put it in your purse or your knitting bag, etc. You always have the tea that *you* like with you!
On the right, the book Coffeehouse Knits - containing 20 patterns for all types of lovely things. It really is a nice book, but I have looked through it several times, and I know that I'm unlikely to ever make any of the patterns. So why not give it a good home?
If you are interested in this prize, please answer the questions below:
1. Iced coffee or iced tea?
2. Potato salad, macaroni salad, pasta salad, or green salad?
Please note that this is open to anyone who wants to enter, but the questions must be answered in this post, so that they are all in one place.
*****And, on a separate note altogether:
Happy Fourth of July!
This is one of my favorite photos, taken a few years ago, when I was walking around in the neighborhood on July 4th. This is Delancey Street, where the houses are all lovely, large town homes, originally built for wealthy people who needed a place to live when they came to town for work, "the season," etc. The houses are still extremely expensive, but also really pretty, and fun to look at (and look into at dusk when the lights are on). I just loved how, when the flags were out, the street still looked as it may have looked in the 1900s on this day.
Enjoy your holiday, and remember, in spite of things currently happening, we live in a pretty amazing country where, with work and determination, we can make things how we want them to be once again.
