About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

My Favorite Blog

Golly Gee, A Blog Award!

My friend Lori over at My Heart With Pleasure Fills has bestowed on me the Beautiful Blogger Award! Thanks, Lori, for the honor! Lori hasn't been blogging long but she's got a really good thing going..... I don't know how she finds time between a full time job and a part time floral design business but somehow she does. I'm now assigned the task of selecting 15 of my favorite blogs to keep the chain going. So...... here goes! The very first blog I discovered was Cindy's My Romantic Home. Cindy does absolutely AMAZING things on a tight budget, with a budget being something I am QUITE familiar with.

And then there's Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch who hosts weekly tablescape parties which I have lots of fun participating in. Susan has a back porch TO DIE FOR, I kid you not. I've always loved to decorate for the holidays but Susan has really inspired me to take it to a new level, I'll tell ya.

I can't forget Lamp Tramp over at Self Confessed Lamp Tramp who lost almost the entire contents of her southern household to a hurricane and does AMAZING things with oyster shells.

And whenever I want to remember the sweet slobbery kisses of my wee little ones and get a monogramming "fix", I take a peek at Kelly's Corner and her beautiful daughter Harper.

One of my newer blog favorites is Annicole over at Our Suburban Cottage. If you're looking for a unique sort of humor, check her out. A recent post asked for advice about a noisy bed. LOL

Laura over at White Spray Paint loves vintage things like chafing dishes and tarnished silver. She keeps me watching the estate sale ads.

And owing that I'm the grandmother to gorgeous twin girls, I love reading about the antics of the twins over at Twice as Nice. These two sisters are the bestest of friends and I would be hard pressed to tell them apart.

And Kristen at The Self Family has a beautiful family and a deep love of photography. She recently set up her own photography site. Her blog pics are always breathtaking!

I have a backdoor blogger friend Susie at Bienvenue. I followed Susie's blog for the longest time having NO IDEA that she lives virtually in my own backyard until my sweet daughter happened to glance over my shoulder and recognize Susie's exceedingly handsome son Jessie.

And how could I leave out Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality? Rhoda is a true professional who isn't too proud to buy secondhand. I love checking out her neat and cheap finds!

Equally creative is Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. Tam recently redid a chair for her guestroom that I would DIE FOR! I love her blog!

And Judy at Gracious Southern Living likes to make little road trips that she shares all of the details about. Judy, I've driven by The Myrtles Plantation many, many times but the next time I definitely am STOPPING IN!

Nina's Nest is Linda's little baby and she's been writing about holding an estate sale for her dear mother-in-law's household possessions. She's one lover of dishes, I'll tell ya.

And I can't leave off Laura at Decor to Adore and her tales of the Fashionista and sweet boy. Laura's blog was another one of the first few blogs I got hooked on.

And last but ABSOLUTELY NOT LAST is Joy's blog aptly named Joys of Home. Joy loves to browse in thrift stores and is the queen of cheap treasures. Her blog always inspires me to look for my goodies in unusual places.

So, ladies, there you have it. All of the reasons that blogging threatens to CONSUME my life! I think I need a 12-step program! I can't get enough!
