"Funny the way life's trials and tribulations can make you laugh out loud when they're happening to Becky Povich. In her memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs, Becky recalls a life's journey not always funny, to be sure, but told always with a wry bemusement that charms and delights. A wonderfully engaging story of the heroine next door."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM ROBERT BRAULT (Author of "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ....among thousands of others)

"If you wish to step back in time and enjoy memories of the period, this book is what you need. Take your time with it, though, because you don't want to read it fast. Each paragraph is a deja vu, a throwback to a simpler time. Povich captures smells, experiences, innovations, and the way parenting used to be. Food, travel, playing outside till dinner. There's so much rich material here you can't digest it at once. Enjoyable read."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM C. HOPE CLARK (Author of the Carolina Slade Mystery Series, and editor of Funds for Writers)

** Gorgeous Necklace **










While down at "The Loop" Friday afternoon, I strolled into a jewelry store on Delmar called Jewels In The Loop. I just wanted to browse a little because I'd seen some pretty, dangly earrings in the window display.


While chatting with the owner, AJ, I mentioned that I'd been "sort of" looking for a necklace the past few months. I wanted a choker that I could wear with a variety of shirts and sweaters. I've been having a hard time finding the right necklace, and especially in just the right size. He went directly to a necklace that went perfectly with a short sleeved sweater I was wearing, and it took my breath away. It consists of multi-colored and multi-shaped beads. I put it on, looked in the mirror, and couldn't believe it. It was just right. So, I obviously had to buy it! I don't often splurge on things for myself, and especially when it comes to jewelry, but this necklace was mine!

This picture doesn't do it justice. It is just gorgeous!


Go see AJ and see what jewels he'll have for you!
