Like me :)

This was mentioned over at a thread at Goodreads and I thought I'd share here.

At home with a good book and the cat...

When my daughter moves out (might be next month or could be next year...) I'm turning the spare bedroom into a medieval/Tudor palace. I might have to get this!!

Nice but until they make one where the image covers the entire face of the plate, I'll be saving my money for more important things...like castle doors. :)

Love your Llewelyn doll Sarah. Now all you need is a Joanna!
