Mrs Raven prefers Potter to Poe these days, a tad lighter reading, I would say :)
Thank you so much for stopping in today!!! I am so glad you found your way to Wren Cottage....because....I have a little surprise for you.... a GIVEAWAY!!! BUT.... there is a "wittle" catch.... If you've been here before or have taken a peek at my flick'r album you will know that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Quotes, Poems, and well, just plain words will do...DREAM, INSPIRE, LOVE...

So the catch to this giveaway is, leave me your favorite quote or as simple as your favorite word by November 5th and you will be entered into my giveaway! I hope you like the glittery banners because the giveaway is "WINTER * WISH" ~ I hope this will be tempting enough for you to leave me your favorite!!

My Abraham Darby surprised me this morning with two more blooms, the scent was stronger to me than in the summer, maybe because I know that I won't be seeing them for awhile now that old man winter will be here before we know it.
I was inspired to decorate the back of my chair by my super sweet friend Tiffany you have to stop by her blog and etsy, I love the way she embellishes her world!!! She was featured recently in the "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" Special Studios Edition Magazine, CONGRATULATIONS sweetie!! Fly over there and take a peek at her world, you'll never want to leave :)!!

TWINKLING EYES OF BLUE...
BUT IF YOU CALL ME ANNE, PLEASE CALL ME ANNE SPELLED WITH AN "E."
"Oh, it makes such a difference. It looks so much nicer. When you hear a name pronounced can't you always see it in your mind, just as if it was printed out? I can; and A-n-n looks dreadful, but A-n-n-e looks so much more distinguished. If you'll only call me Anne spelled with an "E", I shall try to reconcile myself to not being called Cordelia."
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.~Jane Austen
One's home is like a delicious piece of pie you order in a restaurant on a country road one cozy evening - the best piece of pie you have ever eaten in your life - and can never find again. After you leave home, you may find yourself feeling homesick, even if you have a new home that has nicer wallpaper and a more efficient dishwasher than the home in which you grew up. ~Lemony Snicket
"The sweetest flower that blows, I give you as we part. For you it is a Rose, For me it is my heart." ~ Frederick Peterson 1859-1938
"I must warn you, Miss Potter, I am more than prepared to like you!" ~Millie Warne
I've loved creating since I was a child..I was blessed to have had very loving & creative parents ~ my father was a chef & the most wonderful of storytellers! Mom was an accomplished seamstress who loved making clothes for all the family & neighbors, a generous soul. They say that what one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever & that is so very true! I love hosting tea parties, gardening, painting & playing with scissors, papers & glue. Sharing is a big part of who I am ~ I put my heart into everything I do, whether it is friendships, crafting, or in day to day endevours. I find inspiration in the written word: poetry,quotes or a special letter from a friend that can make your day or maybe even change your life. I love beautiful music & friends like TiffanyJane who has been the encouragement behind starting this blog :)~ I'm married to my best friend...we love all things in nature but have a special place in our hearts for birds & butterflies. We love to go on nature walks & are always on the lookout for gifts from nature, whether in a park or a walk in our neighborhood. I'm so very grateful for my little fairy tale...
