I must disagree with you regarding # 45. Though I have only seen bits and pieces of your cottage via your blog I think you have an extrodinary talent for home decor. Just look at your sun porch, that's talent at work!

I'm glad you did this one. I have to agree with Libby on the talent thing ... you are the epitome of talent! Re #36, I thought I had accidentally deleted it, then realized there was no 36. Tuna melts (w/o the bread) are one of my favorite lunches.

You are a great interior decorator. My super power is the same...flying!
