Flowers, Fun and... Feathers?


I found out this morning that I was the lucky winner of the caption contest over at the "Go! Smell the Flowers" blog-- I'm so excited! Apparently, I've won $50 worth of free flowers-- which means, I guess I will be my very own Valentine this year. (Ha-ha! -- sure beats taking myself to H&R Block to have my taxes done, like I usually do. :) )

Anyway, thanks very much to the Flower People for choosing my caption for their cute photo. (The title of this post will make sense, when you see the pic, trust me!) You can view that page by clicking here, if you like.

Now, I just have to go get the "Flower People" song from the movie "Spinal Tap" out of my head...

Anyway, that's my good news for today. Join me tomorrow when I share with you some of my Victorian postcard Valentine collection, and we marvel over the funny, sweet and interesting stories that can unfold on the back of a 3 1/2 by 5 card.
