Just a quick update to let you know what has 
been going on in my life. An unexpected journey began at the end of August and has led me down a road I would rather have not travelled. I've been diagnosed with metaplastic breast cancer and have had a masterctomy of my right breast. Chemo will follow and perhaps radiation. Dishes have taken a back seat in the grand scheme of things. I do appeaciate your caring messages, but am unable to answer each one individually.

  2. Candy, I've missed you! I didn't know where you were or what was going on, but I lifted you up in prayer the whole time. God does things like that, He makes it known to us that someone we care about needs us, but we don't always know why. My sister is a breast cancer survivor, so I know what you're going through. My love, thoughts, prayers and big hugs are with you. Update us as you feel like it and know that there is an entire blogworld of fellow dish and tablecloth lovers out here rallying around you and lifting you up. {{{{Love, Hugs and Prayers}}}}

  4. Wishing you complete recovery! I had BC twice, chemo, radiation, second time a mastectomy. Last cancer in 2005--- it's all gone. It is very treatable and they probably have even better treatments now than 8 years ago. Sending good thoughts your way...

  21. Checking in and wanted to let you know that you re-ignited my passion for Fiesta and tablecloths vintage or new. Your blog is a treat of loveliness and creativity. I have purchased 4 Fiesta tablecloths last summer based on your blog and happily found matching dish towels are now offered at Kohls (probably at Macys too). You remain in my prayers for a full recovery!

  28. Hadn't seen any posts from you in awhile and had missed your beautiful tables and tablecloths, so I thought I'd check in and was stunned to see that you have been battling cancer. I'm so sorry to hear that and will be praying for you, that your treatments are successful and that you will be restored to health. Many good wishes coming your way!
