  51. Kary, congrats on the sign--it does look great up there, doesn't it?

    Well, it's rather bittersweet to say this but wanted to tell you that I am closing Hot Toast and Jam so thought you might enjoy its last post.

    I will still be visiting just not as much (as if I have been that frequent anyway!) as one might expect when hosting a personal blog, verses an art one.

    Let me just say then, thank you for your support along the way, especially the Christmas Tea fun and here's wishing you the best until we chat again. :)

  53. I can see why you love your sign Kary. It's very fitting for your home. Love all your decorations. Im in love with anything orange, brown, and gold this time of year. I saw the Maine Swan blankets in your side bar; can you tell me anything about them? Deb

  54. Hi Kary!

    My husband and I absolutely loved your town but wished we could have spent more time in it -- we basically just passed through as we were on a schedule to stay in Solvang and it was getting late my husband did not want to drive at night. We will definitely return one day for a longer visit I'd love to meet you. California is a beautiful state!
