  1. Did you forget mine or am I just missing seeing it?


    • How could we possibly forget you, Quiggy? 🙂 Actually, because we are 3 host sites that cover 3 days of hosting, we divvy up the list amongst the 3 days otherwise the 2nd and 3rd days would have nothing to do. So I believe you are going on the 2nd day- tomorrow, hosted by Aurora.


  2. Reblogged this on Once upon a screen… and commented:
    The kick-off to the 2018 31 Days of Oscar Blogathon is Outspoken & Freckled…
