  3. Color me impressed - Katie did a beautiful job! And the books are, of course, lovely. The quote's pretty awesome too.

  4. Have you ever heard of I. Lilias Trotter, Nancy? The reason I ask is that I really enjoy her writings and art work (she was a missionary to Algerian Muslims) and she was connected to Ruskin...very interesting story! :)

    1. Yes, yes, yes. I need to revisit her, though. I do remember the Ruskin connection. Thanks!

    2. Blossom in the Desert is a beautiful sample of her writing and her paintings...otherwise, I'm reading a biography by Patricia St. John on her that is very interesting. :)
