And They'll Tell Two Friends....




I was over at Catherine's rapturous site, A Thousand Clapping Hands , today because she had bestowed an award upon me. Thank you very much Catherine. I was puzzling over what to do because although I'm tickled pink to get awards, I really don't accept them on my site. It's the chain letter aspect that kind of gets to me.

I was looking at Catherine's blogroll , when I came to the name Ullabenulla. I checked it out and it was another great looking blog, right up my alley. She had a piece about a herbal garden in jail an Ypres Tower in the south of England. This really peaked my interest because when I was 13 on on holiday in Kent, sans parents, my cousins and I had a great summer adventure with the Ypres Tower near Deal, a gibbet and a town crier. It was just like something from Monica Dickens. But that's for another day.

It turns out Ulla works and teaches at this amazing place in Berkely called Castle in the Air. Castle in the Air is a letter press studio, and an amazingly whimsical shop filled with fine stationery, craft supplies and gifts. But what really got me was their website. I have never seen a website equal to the Castle in the Air. It's amazing, it's 3D, it's old- fashioned, it's modern, it's... it's.....You'd better go see. http://www.castleintheair.biz/

There. Now despite the fact I don't do the awards thing, we're all interconnected anyway. Many thanks Catherine.

Pretty neat site. I checked out the blog too. I love all the leprechaun material. I'll have to revisit, I think.
