I am the recipient of the "Honest Scrap" Award

A big thank you to  Kathleen at  Faded Charm for awarding the "Honest Scrap" award to me.  Well,  this is all new to me, and I am glad to participate.  So, here's what  I am supposed to do....
* Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
* Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.
* Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
* Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines

And away we go:

1.  First and most importantly, I am a Christian, and I try daily to live in obedience to God and His word.

2.  I do not always meet the goals of #1, but God is faithful, and He doesn't ever give up on me!

3.  I have been married for 31 years, and my husband and I have been in love for 37 years.  I have one son who is 26, and am the proud grandmother to his son who is 6 years old.

4.  Even though I have had to work full time for the past 2 years, my heart's desire is to be able to stay home, where I can 'play house', cook, garden and have more time to create and decorate!

5.  I desire to live a simple life.

6.  I'd rather live in my small comfortable home, than in a fancy mansion.

7.  I'd rather go the the nursery and buy a new wonderful plant than to buy a new outfit.

8.  Give me a piece of primitive furniture in original chippy white paint anyday, than diamonds or gold!

9.  The only shoes I wear are Birkenstocks or Crocs.

10. I am content!!

I hereby pass this award to the following inspirational fellow bloggers:

-Fields of Linen and White at
-Ticking & Toile at
-Flax & Spindle
- Maynard Greenhouse
-A Soft Place to Land
-The Decorated House
-The White Bench


  1. It was great learning more about you! We have alot in common. Enjoy your Tuesday!

  2. Yes I agree it is great to learn more about you. After that long email I've decided I will participate. Not sure when though but thank you for asking! I also would rather have an old piece of furniture then gold and diamonds but old vintage rhinestones and silver well that's a different thing! lol


Thanks for stopping by...ya'll come back now, ya hear?
