In Loving Memory of Evelyn McMartin

Her energy was as brilliant as this beautiful flower. She will be missed by many. Love, Stephanie

Snowflower and the Secret Fan

Just saw the movie. Beautiful...but, better read the book first. Two thirds of it was spoken in Chinese...although the emotions were universal. Make sure you're in an "up" mood and have high quality chocolate nearby. Snowflower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See.

The costumes were well done. The silks and embroideries were especially intriguing. Made me think about some brocade silks in my stash....hmmmm.
