TCB Day and Taking Break

I have lots of business to take care of today~ Some of this may include you…so keep reading ;)

First, let me thank everyone that came to the Shoe Show!!!!  I really appreciate every participator!!!  I saw some great pairs of shoes that day….that I would like to have in my closet… ;)   I wish I could give everyone something for coming, but I can give away something to one lucky lady!!!  So…….

WE HAVE A WINNER!  Y’all remember the Shoe Show Giveaway??  Well, # 5 is the winner!  Congrats to Stacey at Poofing the Pillows!!!!  Stacey was entry #5!

DSC07331 Stacey, if you will email me your address I will get your winnings out to you soon!


Mishebe at The Crowned Casa sent me this ribbon rose pin!  I just love it!!!!!!!!  Thank you so much Michelle!!!!!!  Michelle buys these in all sorts of colors and decorates with them in her beautiful home….however,

Then, I won giveaway over at Note Songs from Miss Shelia!

DSC07308 It was a happy day when this box arrived….y’all know the feeling.

DSC07312 And, check out the pillow….made by Miss Shelia herself!!!  Doesn’t it look like it was meant to be in my kitchen!!!!!!!!!  It is absolutely beautiful, and I love it!!!!!!  Thank you Shelia for the wonderful giveaway!!!!




Why anyone gives me an award is beyond my thinking!!!  I am the worst to post about them because I forget them!!  Just being honest here!   I love to receive them and appreciate everyone of them!  And, my intentions are good, when it comes to posting about them….but somewhere along the way…..I forget!

Miss_Janice_Silver_Spoon_Award_023Silver Spoon Award~ I don’t know if an award gets any better then this one from Miss Janice at Etiquette with Miss Janice the Silver Spoon Award and I received all 5!  And, Yep I forgot it!!!  How on earth could I forget an award of this stature!!!  This is like receiving an Emmy Award in Blogland.   Thank you so much Miss Janice!!!!  I will cherish it for eveh!!!!!  Please note~ I can not pass this award on to anyone…only Miss Janice can do that!!!


bear award A Comments Award from Melissa at Little Things In Life.

Thank you so much Melissa!!!! I am honored to receive such an award!!!!  Now, I have to pass this award on to 6 people….…this is the part I hesitate to do….I do not want to offend or hurt anyone…as you all mean so much to me!!!!!!!!  And, since this is my blog….I can do it my way…right? 

1. Pat at Back Porch Musings~  Pat has been leaving me comments since the day I started blogging…never has she missed one of my post….I know, because it has made such an impression on me!!!!  Thank you Pat for always supporting my posts even when they are……not so good….. ;)   I like to think of her as my Blog Mom, because she has always commented and shows her support!!! 

2. Kathy :) An Anonymous commenter~  Kathy, doesn’t have a blog….but she leaves comments on everything I post and has for a very long time now!!!  I have even noticed her comments on some other blogs too, so y’all know who I am talking about!!!!  I hope she doesn’t mind me doing this, but I want her to know just how much she is appreciated in blogland!!!  She always signs here name   Kathy:)  We love you Kathy:)!!!!!!!!!

There are so many more of you I would love to pass this award on to…..I could be here all day….but…the beds need to be made and we need clean clothes and dinner on the table…you get the picture….right?


I am sure I have forgotten an award….and believe me I didn’t do intentionally!!!!!!  I really do appreciate every award…and as always I will try to do better on posting those!!!!!  ;) 

One more thing….during my break {you’ll read about below} I will be shipping out all promised giveaway goodies and some other things too…you know who you are!  I haven’t forgot you!




I have more business to tend to….that doesn’t include blogging time!!!  I know you all understand!!!  I’ll try to keep up with visiting each of you as I can!!!

Couldn't think of a nicer person to win this give-a-way than you! (well...except maybe me..he he)
Just strolling through your recent posts to catch up and saw your fab-you-luss soup tureen arrangement. What an elegant piece and it shows off your totally terrific thrifty find!
Thanks, girl, for the compliments on my coastal bedroom. At first I worried it wouldn't feel "right" in the winter, but I went through last fall and winter in it and still enjoyed it. Since I'm at the "wonderful" age of hotflashes, I go in there and it helps make me feel cool and breezy!

Miss Janice said...

Just stopped in to see what's going on with you beautiful lady...have a wonderful break and I'll pop back in to visit again soon.
