This is the first time I have visited your blog. I came over from Creations by Cindy. I just started a new meme, too-Bedscapes and beyond. It is a dismal failure. Only one or two people link and last week no comments whatsoever. Congratulations on your successful party. Of course, don't most bloggers thrift shop. I know I do and I'll be linking up, too. Nice to meet you.
