Random Post

I received a cool award ( I don't think it has a particular name) from Carrie at
Buzzings of a Queen Bee ( that has an explanation I am supposed to share.

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Whew, I'm not sure what all of those words mean, but I think they're complimentary. Thanks so much Carrie!!! The eight bloggers/blogs I choose are:

Erin at

Tricia Anne at

Betsy at

Sandy Toes at

Blanca at

Tam at

Julie at

Sue at

I always have to apologize for putting the address instead of linking you to them, but I can't ever remember how to do it and I don't want to go get my husband. Maybe I'll learn someday!

I was BOOED by two sweet bloggers and I am just now acknowledging them. SORRY! Debbie at
Julie at

I have been tagged many times and I'll get to them over the next few weeks. I really do appreciate all the awards and tags, I just take my sweet precious time blogging about them. It's the procrastinator in me!

Now on to a little decorating stuff. Am I totally crazy for getting down 2 of my Christmas trees today? Go ahead and say it - YES, ANGIE, U ARE! I am just so ready to decorate for Christmas. Am I ready for Christmas? NOOOOO! I just love the lights and decorations and am excited about it. I usually don't decorate until after Thanksgiving, but I think I'm going to start like mid Nov. this year. No one is coming to my house for Thanksgiving so it really doesn't matter. I have got some things in mind I want to make for Christmas so I had better start on the projects now or they won't get done. I can't wait to see everybody's homes all decorated and I am counting on y'all to give me lots of great ideas like you always do! Check me out on Wed. for a tour of my living room. Have a great day!

I am dying to get it all out too. I'm not big into Thanksgiving at all. I'd start pulling it all out now if I didn't think I'd get tired of it by Christmas!! Soon though!

I'm about to pull my trees down also! The holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, are too busy to have to worry about decorating and having a complete MESS around the house. I decorated before Thanksgiving last year and it was freeing!

Now I want to sway your vote. Bless Our Nest is having a pumpkin contest. Fern's son carved a pumpkin and it is #21...Could we count on your vote??

Erin said...

Angie! Thanks for the award! You are so cute and fun! I love Christmas too. I was going to decorate earlier in the month, but my family is coming up for Thanksgiving. Fun to see them, but I am really wanting to do Christmas instead! :) I am so excited to see your living room tomorrow. It is too bad we don't live closer! My friends I live by aren't into the decorating thing like I am. It would be fun to hang out with someone who is! Have a great day!

Go for it! I have come to the conclusion that Christmas is centered around the birth of Jesus and to me we all are thankful for that which should conclude to be a part og Thanksgiving. Hope you understand what I am saying...

Congrats on the awards and I am ready to see your decorations. I am going to do some around my house this weekend.

Angie, I have clicked on your blog several times kind of accidentally. I can't take it any more I'm going to add you to my list!! :) Your house is adorable. I like your description of your love affair with your home. Isn't that so true!!

Hi Angie!
How did I miss this? I am such a ding a ling! :o) What a precious compliment to pass along as an award! I will post and pass along as well. Thank you! I love your blog! I am hunting for a red frame on your blog right now (that is how I ran across this post). I bought a big, chunky, plastic frame, sprayed it with Kilz after removing the picture and plan to paint it red for my kitchen! I can't decide if I want a chalk board or a magnetic board...any ideas?
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
Ps. Have you ever covered steel with fabric for a magnetic board? I keep seeing them and have the perfect fabric for it.
