And the winner of the autographed copy of La Petite Four is Gillian Layne! Gillian, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know where I should send the book.
Have fun with Marissa for the rest of the month. I'll pop in when I can and be back at the helm in August. And speaking of helm, here's one of the reasons I wasn't blogging last week.

This is the Lady Washington, which was featured in all three Pirates of the Carribean movies, setting out into Commencement Bay with the Merrie Ellen and a replica of the Nina in the foreground. Enjoy!
