I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    I have to join in here one day when I get back to crafting. Love the pussy cat with those beautiful eyes. The cake looks decadent but delicious. I have to find a good recipe for Italian salad dressing. Love Gordon Lightfoot and this song is beautiful like so many of his.
