Remember the Book Blogger Holiday Swap? My Santa's gift arrived this week. I was shouting out with glee (okay, not shouting but pretty darn excited) when I opened it. Pep (Pep didn't leave an email or blog address, so I can't thank her properly) sent me The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte which I've been dying to read and a gorgeous bookmark from a local artisan. The bookmark has a dogwood design. Dogwoods are the first thing that flower here in the spring so it will be a nice reminder that winter will end during that long season.
Thank you so much Pep! I love it! (And thanks for the lovely letter too.)
