I would like to take a moment to thank my friends, old and new, for their kind sentiments and condolences after the great losses we have endured. This year has been a difficult one, to be certain. However, I am much comforted by the fact that so many people care. In time I will remember Shenanigan, Frances, Duchess and Jenny without tears. Thank you so much for your support and understanding.

Another bookcase inspiration...
I still have to use Clear Wax over the entire piece, then Dark Wax on the details. I'm wondering if there is an Olympic Clear Wax applying event? I'm in training.
