Default My favorite Christmas present....

.....came in the mail from Cheryl today!! Just in time for Christmas I received the copy of Stitch in Snow from the McQuest! It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! When my son brought it up from the mailbox, I went nuts! I was so excited! I can't believe I got such a wonderful prize just for having a great time! Thank you so much to Cheryl, and Lady Maelin, and everyone that had anything to do with the McCaffrey Quest!

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
