I'd like to thank the academy....

Not sure if y'all have visited The White Farmhouse, but if you haven't, get thy cyber rear over there.  Maggie is hysterically funny and REAL.  Cracks me up every.single.time I pop over.....

She bought some of my soap awhile back, then won a giveaway of my soap a month later....and that soap is still sitting in my living room, having attempted the trip only to be sent back because I cannot address a box.  Ahem.  Maggie even loves me when I screw up like that, AND can't bring back her favorite scent.  That's what I call a true blue bloggy friend. :)  Thanks for choosing me, Maggie!  I'm convinced we're twins separated at birth.  Or at least Lucy and Ethel....I'll be Ethel.

Now I am to:
Post the award, thank and link back to the wonderful blogger who passed it to me.(check)

awww, shucks! thanks so much for including me. I'm not totally tag/award free, but just too darn busy at this moment.
Most of your favs are my favs too. Except replace the oatmeal cream pies with swiss cake rolls.
Replace reading novels with sawing and nailing.
Replace foot rubs from hubby with snuggling with my furbabies!
thanks so much! It warms my heart you thought of me!
break time's over, it's back to work (on the living room)

Um... we (or me, and my dogs) love Oatmeal Cream Pies so much, that we call them, OCP's...
Walk into my house and say, "OCP"... the dogs will come running.

aw, thanks, I'm honestly so flattered, it always amazes me that other people would actually remember my blog! I'll try to post this soon!

I could eat Oatmeal Pies every day of my life.

Tammy said...

Aww thanks for having me as one of your faves- back at you siser. I love your blog and kinda stalk it at times- do you feel me looking over your shoulder. I don't really do tags - well because with a hubby gone and 4 kids I do good to blog :) But I love most of the same things- except swap oatmeal for chocolate. Oh and history novels - oh yeah give me one in Ireland in the olden days with hot hunky men saving a woman and I am swooning :)

I just got back from my local Barnes & Noble, but alas, no new decorating magazines I wanted to purchase. Sigh. I love them so. But I did find two gardening books in the clearance section. So the trip was not in vain.

And I come here for the laughs and info! I think we were seperated at birth too. You can be my Ethel anytime! Love the oatmeal pies too! And those little pinwheels but you have to unroll them to eat. And my memory foam mattress too!

I do so love you and your soapy goodness!

OK, LOVE LOVE THE BEDROOM and especially the creativity with cutting up fab's and turning every which way to get trim where it's spose to be -- often a 3:00 am invitation to disaster in my long and twisted deco' past.

HAVE SEEN THE FADED BLUE FLORAL -- just don't know where, but it WAS in a store. Look at Hancock Carmel 116 and Rangeline.
We read so we know we're not alone, the saying goes .....so true for following home creators' honest to goodness true to life experiences! Love Mom
