It is simple, but, elegant -- I just love the embossing on the left side!
A funny email I received from my sister -- too good not to share:
A BOTTLE OF WINE----A TOUCHING STORY ALL WOMAN WILL ADORE!
Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.
As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. 'What in bag?' asked the old woman.
Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.'
The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said: 'Good trade.....'

Many airports skip the 13th gate.
Airplanes have no 13th aisle.
Hospitals and hotels regularly have no room number 13.
Italians omit the number 13 from their national lottery.
On streets in Florence, Italy, the house between number 12 and 14 is addressed as 12 and a half.
Another sure sign of Spring!
The Cardinals are back!

Okay, so, this is my very 1st entry into the world of blogging! What to say 'bout myself? Not really a chatty cathy when it comes to talkin' about myself, but, here goes!
I am a transplanted New Englander, living in the deep South -- and, lovin' it! Our kids are grown and we now reside with 2 big hounds - Zoe (hence the name of the blog) and Brady.
Other than our love for our family, the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and the BC Eagles, I am also passionate about the crafts that I do. Although, I don't tend to call it crafts -- crafts to me, sounds more like a hobby. It has become way more than a hobby to me -- more of an obsession. Five years ago, I was introduced to the world of scrapbooking while I lived in Savannah, GA, and, well, now I have what my youngest son dubbed "the Scraptorium". It now shares space with all of the gems that I have purchased after becoming introduced to the world of "beading" -- my new passion.
Recently, I have been combining the two since my youngest son is getting married very soon -- the invitations were created in the Scraptorium along with the jewelry for his beautiful bride.
