Black and White...

...and a bit in between.

Do you have this in your collection?  
It just went on my wishlist.

P.S.  Want to create your own wishlist?  
Go {here} to create a universal wishlist  (it allows you to add items from any website.)
Once you have the wishlist feature in place, visit the emporium and look for your list to appear on the bottom right of the page.  I use it not only as my "wishlist" for gifts I'd like to receive, but just as an organizational tool to keep track of items I like and may buy for myself or the house or gifts for others.

Hi Leann
So funny this is the second article I have read about black and white today. I find that I have really been drawn to it lately. I am wondering if we are sick of everything gray...but not ready to jump on the crazy color wagon...
