Dana from I’ve Got Cake has nominated Potluck Time for a Liebster Award!  Not only does Dana have cake, but she also has style in everything she does from fashion to food to photography and I’m truly honored to be nominated by her!

My green pea coat.  My husband picked it out and surprised me with it for Christmas many years ago.  It’s still my favorite!
