I don’t know about you but…
April is going WAY too fast…!!!

recycle some great old posts…

and the Doors are “Fairy Tale Blue”
…wanna hear something funny…those aren’t even my initials…
one time I had someone see this and say
“Hey! Those are MY initials!”

Thank you for taking a tour of Turquoise through my downstairs.
