What I Wore Sunday – Volume 112


Hello hello, and welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  It has been a crrraaazzyyy weekend around here so far, and I have a couple of things to tell you all. FIRST of all - THANK YOU to all of you who have gone over to Roses For Mary's Etsy Shop and purchased a rosary!  Becky reported that after our give-away she has seen a rise in business.  I appreciate you all for supporting her - what a fabulous way to repay her kindness in donating a rosary for our give-away.  If you have ordered one, send us a photo either via email or on our Facebook page - I would love to see what you chose!

AND!  Inquiring minds what to know … [Continue reading...]
