I made a new bloggy friend today. Her name is Kim from Homesteaders Heart. If you haven't had the privilege of meeting her, you should. She's a real hoot! I found her via one of my penless pen pals named Mimi. And she's hosting a Show & Tell carnival for everybody to join in. This Saturday's Show & Tell is all about your favorite collections. My prized collection is nutcrackers and I'm absolutely nuts about them. Of course, I only show them off during Christmas; but, a couple of months ago, I recieved one of a treasure. It was given to me by my father-in-law after returning home from a European getaway. Hand carved by the hands of a TRUE craftsman, this nutty little guy is truely priceless.
