I hope all are doing well and having a lovely Summer. I've been gone on a trip and have much to tell, but will do it on my next post!
However, I did want to show you the wonderful mail that I received! I went to my mailbox and found a package with beautiful butterfly tape and gorgeous postage stamps on it! It came all the way from Greece!!! How exciting is that???
Ariadne sent me a package, containing the book My Dog Skip by Willie Morris. In reading her blog, I know that she is an avid reader. She had read this book, and said that it really wasn't her favorite. I commented to her that it is by a beloved Mississippi author, and that the movie was filmed very near where I live! Willie Morris is one of many famous Mississippians and was always active in the public and such a Southern Gentleman! He passed away a few years ago.
Anyway, she offered to send it to me--I haven't read it but I did see the movie! She was so sweet to do this, and to include some lovely cards and bookmarks from her area. I just love everything and it made my day to receive it! Thank you again, Ariadne!
Has anyone read My Dog Skip? Or read books by our famous Mississippi authors? Willie Morris, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Margaret Walker Alexander, John Grisham, Tennessee Williams, Shelby Foote, Walker Percy, Stark Young....the list goes on and on! I know that your states probably have wonderful writers, too, but I have to admit that I am not well read--it is such a shame, and something I'm always wanting to correct!! My mother was very well read, and collected books of literary value--not novels, but the classics. She had a wonderful library and loved all of her books. It was hard to deal with them when she died!! I had a dear friend that wanted some, I kept a few, and I donated many to the library and to nursing homes. She had inventoried her books, and had 571! Oh my!!! But they were her treasures!
I have done some stitching!! I will show that on my next post! I also have a growing stack of items (ornaments!!!) to finish, and I am really itching to get to those and see how they all turn out! Stitching is fun--yes!! But creating the finished product is fun, too!!
Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon!
