Ohhhhh an award for me!

                                               I am so
to receive this award

I had such a busy day
 felt a bit overwhelmed
with it all.
To come home
to this little bit of
This is one of those things
that makes me
Grateful for the little comments
 from those who come by...
They all mean so much.
I so relish your
and the
you bring into the world.
Now, Laurie had added to her blog
 some things you may not know about her...
so now it is my turn.
 I love birdies.  My kids make fun of me
as when a birdie nests in my yard I am so thrilled. 
My, yes, "my" dove just hatched her baby
in the nest in the wreath
above my garage door. 
I love bees.  I do not know why really...
I love to paint them, I love the richness
in a nature they represent. 
I am a little scared of the hornets
but not the bumble bee.

I am a planner but I might not always get it done. 
I may be a bit fussy about how things are visually.
I have to have a room visually yummy
before I can sit and relax.
I mostly keep my living room clean for this reason
but we actually use it A LOT too.

This is one of my favorite sayings. 
 My Mother and her mother and her mother
before passed down this gene.
The gene that makes you just do it. 
Makes you take something
and make it into something else,
 better, new...more.
I had no "cool" pumps for a dance in college. 
I took old T-strap buckled numbers
and made them into some kick butt pumps.
I knew I was doomed to live my motto
"Something from Nothing" because
I didn't know it couldn't be done...
so I did it anyway.

I love my family more than I can tell you.
Their support and acceptance of me...
bird, bee lovin', planning doer

Oh and lastly, my "c" and "h" stick so I miss them
and I am a horrid speller so...
at least I can paint a flower. 
Does that count?


I am passing this award on to
A little bit on sanity and a lot of chaos

I do not know what it is about her blog
but I always go there as I read thru my
Dashboard of the latest post.
I mean I see what she writes,
 I lived (my chaos is a bit different now as my kids are older) what she writes.
It is the mix of horrid vomit stories,
glass shards embedded in her beautiful stairs
and the chair dust(yes, grody and bogue - ever use that one?)
covering her carpet.
Ahh and throw in a creative accomplishment and you get...
One beautiful chaos called life.
Go visit.

  3. Oh, see how fun it is to learn about each other? I have had nests in my wreaths, too! Our last house before this one seemed to be the "bird" house and we had nests everywhere! It made me feel kind of special!

  4. Congratulations on your award!

    Me? You picked me? Thank you so much! What a great thing to wake up to!

  5. Hi, I just found your blog from Kirsty's blog. Love the work you do! Wish I could work at a great shop like Chartreuse and Co. Looks like a lot of fun. Oh and I have the college kid too that is probably doing the same thing as Kirsty's son but for a whole other reason!
