  12. Oh Helen,
    How lovely for you to be included in this Registry. What a proud moment.
    I wouldn't think that we would be able to get the duPont Registry in the UK but, I will inquire.
    Many congratulations once more Helen. XXXX

  14. Hi Helen!
    Thanks for your sweet comments, sorry I haven't been around lately in blog land to comment back; I see that you have been in Ireland, my husband was there and he loved it, so hopefully we can go as a family next year.
    Just had a stroll around your other blog, with your friends, also lovely to read, but I will follow this blog, so I can hop back to see what you and your friends have been doing. Keep up the good work!

    We are absolutely delighted for you to have been included in such an elegant and stylish publication as 'The Registry'. We shall never tire of telling everyone we know that someone we know is included!! Such a thrill for you and a fitting reward for all your hard work.

    Our prize would be to know that you had bought tickets to Hungary to visit us. That would be a red letter day to mark on our calendar!!

  49. Dear Helen

    I hope I didn't say anything which sounded "wrong" as you are a lady I really, really like and admire... and you are also professional, too, so much so, you are celebrated in art publications, and so you should be (sorry about the "posh" thing! I really didn't mean for it to sound offensive... I hope I am forgiven for talking nonsense! I would hate to upset you!)

    You should, indeed, show off your achievements and... thank you for sharing! As always, you are very generous!

    So lovely to hear from you this morning and I am not offended at all. I loved you little joke about it being "posh". That is a good word to me and not in the least offensive. I also truly believe you are a fun loving kind, intelligent and generous woman who would never dream of offending or hurting. I love to joke too, so please keep that sense of humour Anna

  63. Well firstly I must say "Hello! And thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comment."

    Then..very many congratulations on your being in the magazine, how wonderful! I scrolled down to read your lovely post about the gorgeous house you visited in Ireland it looks like such a delightful place. I love Ireland, but maybe it's in my genes too as my Dad's side of the family all originated there. Speaking of family I did smile at the photo of your two brothers and your writing that they are two 'happy brothers' really!! ;))

    I shall enjoy reading some more of your blog I'm sure.

    Hugs Jane

    It was big thrill for us to be interviewed by duPont REGISTRY. So glad you like Ireland and my brothers in all sincerity are very joyful, they are witty, great singers and dances and we always say "getting old was not a choice for them, but growing up was optional"They are two big kids still and I miss them very much

  82. Helen, friend, I was an idiot. I didn't read this post properly and failed to recognize that what you were giving away featured your art. I must have been reading many blogs and was just spaced hideously. I realized my error after visiting Jane and Lance's blog and recently seeing the registry link they had posted on their sidebar.

    Please understand I meant no slight and am deeply, deeply chagrined. I offer a sincere apology -- and almost feel like crying as understanding washes over me.

  83. Hello Suze

    Absolutely no apologies needed my friend. I took no offence at all. As a follower of your blog I do know you are kind and considerate and would never offend.
