Love the shoe fabric - but, even more, I love that Evening in Pairs with the Eiffel Tower fabric ... I'm going to blog about it this week LOL.

I've seen Michael perform three times - once right up close. He's amazing!

Did you? Do you still? I love listening to harp music. Weird. And it's so seldom that one hears it. I adore a piano and I really like Michael Feinstein. I even have one of his cds. I used to love "Stay." Long story.
