“We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”

Due to the combination of a heavy work load and the glorious spring sunshine, which calls me away from my computer and out into the garden whenever it can, I'm way behind on responding to blog comments. I have time to either keep up to date with your new gorgeous blog posts, or to respond to the comments on mine, but not both, so I will keep commenting on blogs, but sadly commenting on your kind responses to my own posts will have to wait for a while.
I love to receive your comments though, dear peeps, so please do keep them coming!
I'm delighted to be a part of the next Visible Monday, hosted by the lovely Patti from www.notdeadyetstyle.blogspot.co.uk, click on the website link to see her outfit and those of many others.
