It has been very quiet around here, but with good reason. I needed time to sort out priorities and directions, some good, some bad. I feel I owe you all an explanation. It's not coming yet. Today, I have something much better...
It's with pride and excitement that I introduce you to my beautiful friend's new blog:
You know what they say... Gentlemen prefer blondes
She has beauty, she has grace, she's Miss United... wait, no... but seriously, the beauty and grace thing!
Nicolette is one of the most stylish young ladies you will meet, though her blog showcases another one of her enviable talents: her artwork. Her illustrations are stunning; a perfect combination of whimsy and realism. For a few years, I've been blessed with amazing Christmas and birthday cards (see below) and one very, very beautiful hand-painted silk scarf (one of my most prized possessions). Just recently, she's begun selling her work. If you're interested, contact her through her blog.

Beautiful floral details
Check out Nicolette's blog to brighten up your winter days and let me assure you, I am still kicking, but probably in a different way than I did before. Things have been murky and odd, but there's something on the horizon and I think it will be good.
