    did you see Anna Maria Horner put a sneak peek of her new line on her blog – gorgeous!

  2. There is so much to link to in this post – pure entertainment for me. It was tough to leave Amy Butlers’ wallpapers. They are so modern in a vintage sort of way.
    (Does that make any sense?)
    I too saw Anna Maria Horner’s new line that Amber (comment above) is referring too. There are so many new things to take in today. Thank you for all the links. Carolina
