annabelle & a giveaway

The Annabelle dress by Dace, a most perfect birthday gift. Thank you, E., R, and C., you darling girls! It is the prettiest dress I own.

I am not usually one of those people who demands a lot of attention on my birthday, but I did mention that it was my birthday yesterday on Twitter (more than once, I hate to admit). I was completely overwhelmed by all the sweet wishes I received, though! It was so kind.

In my haze of good feelings, I decided to pick up this Hudson's Bay Company scarf (it matches my hat). As a small thank you, I would like to give it away. I wish I had a hundred of them! It is 100% cotton, about 60" long, and, I think, lovely. Please leave a comment and I will select a winner at random on Thursday afternoon, the last day of the year!

    My family used to have some blankets w/ the same pattern. I had totally forgotten about them until I saw your hat and this scarf. I bet I used to think they were itchy but I'd love to have them now.
