    Thank you for this!! I shared it on my blog, too, if that’s OK? I used the “press this” button as opposed to the “reblog” button (out of curiosity to see what that button did lol – I was relieved to see that it does link back to this blog). Was it OK for me to share? Would you rather I use the “reblog” button instead? 🙂 I totally love this piece!! ❤
