My grandmother was born in Lille, France, so that tile would have a special place of honor in my home :) All of Molly's tiles are gorgeous-so they fit right in with all of your products. Hope that with the extra help, you can enjoy a more relaxing holiday season.

Oh my gosh it's good to hear your voice Miss Ruth!!! I'm so glad you have taken control and set a plan in place to care for both your business and your self!!! It's far to easy to burn out when you don't allow for any "me" time!! Besides we tend to become a bit cranky when we don't :)

What a great giveaway!! I have had my eye on a couple of tiles in Molly's shop for quite awhile. All I need is a "Mule" headed this way with room for one in their luggage! ;)
