  1. There are so many good cozies. After reading a few last year I haven't had one in a while, I'm starting to get the bug again. I love how there are so many choices...

    Happy anniversary! Hope you guys had an awesome day. Looking forward to seeing your TT historical settings this week.

    I used to collect teapots and they were so beautiful on a high shelf over my sink, but we miss so dang much that it just wasn't practical to do this anymore. That book looks like fun and I'm interested in your thoughts on Star of Fortune, which I downloaded last month but didn't read yet. Have a very good week ahead with your family!
