Check out what arrived in the mail today. Earlier this month I entered a blog giveaway hosted by Kellie of 74 Lime Lane fame. And wouldn't you know it - I won! I won the latest album by Melody Gardot - The Absence. I have already listened to the album this afternoon. it was a smooth, laid back listening experience. It takes me back to a time from before I was born - very tiki lounge. Kellie, thank you for the album.
