Have you joined Vine yet? It’s a new iPhone app that let’s you record and share 6-second video clips. They launched this week so there are plenty of kinks they need to work out, but it has so much potential! I’m ‘Susannah Conway’ on Vine — my first clips are here and here (check out actor Adam Goldberg’s feed — he’s really running with it!)

    Wow! What a great post for a long cold winter week-end. Susannah you have brought me warmth and light while I am struggling with some difficult times [other than the cold and dark].

    Ahh so many great things in this post! I love the magic carpet yoga mats and Erica’s gift.
    I’ve marked a date on my calendar to attempt making that apple rosemary skillet cake and I had a good laugh about my colour personality! Have you tried the ‘what your favourite ice cream flavour says about you’ one yet?
