First up, a bunch of heartfelt thank-yous - the brilliant Veshoevius honoured me with the Versatile Blogger Award, and the tremendous Helga included my meet-up with the Forest City Fashionista in her initial instalment of Friday's Five. So nice! With the upcoming demise of Google Friend Connect, I'm also appreciating how many folks have switched over to follow Butane Anvil on Bloglovin' - thank you for reading and staying connected through times of sparser posts.

I'm also grateful to the friends who noticed my absence and stayed in touch by email. I am okay! Time and energy suddenly got wicked scarce (even more than usual) as other areas of life have become temporarily way more demanding. I've been missing visiting blogs and leaving comments.
Do you also struggle with wanting to do too many things, and find yourself not giving anything the attention you'd like? How do you ever choose what to let go of when you're in love with everything?

The situation is paralleled in my closet - though I'd just picked up a vintage wool circle skirt, I was somehow unable to leave this one behind. I'm linking up with Visible Monday at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, where there is always lots to love. See you there!
