Miss Martha Mae has returned!

a terrible picture of me, but I promised.......
I went with Martha Mae Bobby Rae, but that was too long so I shortened it. Every year I make a little piece of art for the wall of the cottage. Here is this year's entry:

Next year we will be pirates! I'm SOOOOO excited!

And now for the draw..............

And the "Name that Southern Belle" Winner is..........(I put everyone's names into a hat --all of the names were all SO WONDERFUL !)
Congratulations Catherine!!! I'm emailing you right now!

I made lots of little collages this week, read a few books (Water for Elephants and Airborn, a YA Novel by Kenneth Oppal). I did may hours of prep work for back to school. I also ate waaaayyyyy too much and perhaps drank a bit much too. We watched some great movies (Jezebel and The Beguiled). And I also finished my ATCs for my ATC group meeting this friday. You have to wait 'till Friday to see them though.Some people say that words such as "dream" have been over-used. But what do we have left if we give up our dreams?
I'm off now to read over 300 emails........ and tomorrow I'll post about all of the cool snail mail that came while I was away....
