Take the Time...

To Write a Review...

I know most of you have seen the photo of the book
I absolutely love from Magnolia Pearl,
with some of my collection of Belgian crochet

...and yes, my lovely purse, I mean... work of art!

Any how... The reason I'm posting today is
I've heard
from quite a few of you that
you absolutely
LOVE this book too
Did you know, you can go on

and write a review? click here
- just go to the bottom of the page

...and leave your review...

In other words, Easy as Pie!

Also, I would like to take a moment
to let you know
Magnolia Pearl
has a 2009 Calendar for Love available
here if you're dying to have one of these ;)
I ordered mine this morning...
and a special
gift calendar for someone too.

Profits from the calendar go to Robin & John's
local, no-kill,
animal shelter (C.C.P.A.L) in Bandera, Texas.

This helps feed lots & lots of four-legged friends
that would go hungry if not for their generosity.
And the shelter is busily working try to find
"Home Sweet Home" for each lovely animal there.

Please... Zeke came from not the best
home, as did our kitty cats...
(He approves this message ;)

And with the book review~
I've been savoring each page
and want people to know just how lovely
A Bit of Velvet & A Dash of Lace
truly is to read and gaze upon
for inspiration!

It only takes a couple of minutes
and speaking of that...

I'm off to write my review...
and then work on my website to get
it all
Spectacular, Spectacular!

Au Revoir for Now
Thanks for Taking the Time
for the Review...

And Lots of Love to you ~
You Animal Lovers Out There ;)

Your dog is very pretty, no matter where he came from!

Judy said...

What a beautiful book. I'll have to check it out.

Amy Sutter said...

I have never seen that book before!! It sounds delish...being an animal lover also I will click on the link. So excited to see your website, I know it will be amazing!

Hey, I think I've even been through Bandera once or twice. If I had my way, some of our taxes would go to these shelters. No ifs, ands or buts. Zeke is a wonderful reference, for which I have abundant respect.

Counting Your Blessings said...

Ah, now there's something I love =) Her book was so wonderful. I just finished it the other day but I'm still leafing through. I thought some of her childhood stories were so darling. I didn't realize that we can write reviews at Amazon. I'll have to pop over there soon.

I left a comment on her blog the other day asking how she decorates for Christmas. Wouldn't you love to see that?!

Hugs, Polly

My Petite Maison said...

Hi Polly,
I would love to see that so, so much!

Glenda said...

Your making me want to get this.

I'll have to look around for a copy.

Stay as dry as you can, and hope you have a fireplace to snuggle around.



Zeke has got that "or else!" look in his eye. Hard to believe that furry beauty could ever have been mistreated but doesn't he know the wonderful difference with his true mom!
Great cause to support Tracie.

Looks like a beautiful book to add to my Holiday Wish List... I really like the photo of Zeke! His fur coat looks like the perfect place to run your fingers through... give him a ♥ hug for me, please! And I am getting anxious to see the new website, too... Hope your week is off to a great start... God bless...

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Sounds like a book I would definitely want. I've got a tremendous soft spot for our four legged friends. I find their unconditional love so heart felt. I've hand reared my(orphaned)kitty from 4oz's to 10 lbs. We've shared ups and downs for over 13 years. I named her Angel, cause that is what she is in my life. I've opened my home to other orphaned kitty's whom I miss. Your precious pup will be cherished and find a new wonderful life with you.
I've enjoyed my visit to both your blogs. Thanks for sharing.
Sweet Wishes,

Shabby Addict said...
