Tags aren't just for packages!

I've been tagged by  The Rauths 
I'm supposed to tell you 6 random things about me.  

Here are the "rules."

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post these six rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

Well, let's see:
1.  I can write backwards with my non-dominate hand.  Freaky, I know.  I must be borderline ambidextrous or something.  

2.  I canceled my cable.  I am now the biggest fan of APPLE TV.  If you haven't looked into it, DO.  You'll save money, have no commercials, and watch only what you want to watch.  For example, I saw the first episode of the new season of MAD MEN--and now have it on my Apple TV--and can watch Don and Betty Draper again and again!  

3.  I have a very old chocolate labrador.  Seeing my dog decline in his old age is much more depressing than I ever thought it would be.   Dogs are such a constant in our lives.  In this case 12 years and counting. 

4.  I'm addicted to coffee in the morning and sweet tea in the afternoon.  I just can't get through my day with out them--and believe it or not, the tea is always decaffeinated.  I'm a purist too--no artificial sweeteners will do.  I need sugar!

5.  Unlike Mrs. Rauth, I hate to do the dishes.  I can't stand the thoughts of touching dirty dishes.  I ALWAYS wear gloves when I HAVE to do them.  I sometimes go to the extreme of not cooking, just to avoid the clean up.  Plus, who wants to mess up that beautiful, clean kitchen

6.  I'm a bit obsessive about china (yet, I still don't like to wash it!).  I have numerous sets that I change out seasonally or with the theme of a party, etc.  I've gone a bit over the top and really need to edit.  

Now for the six that I am going to tag:
1.  Troy at Good Home, it's like we are old friends--and he's an amazing Southern writer!
2.  Copy Cat Chic, oh, so fun.  I wish I could shop and compare like this one can.
3.  Style Court, love it!  That's all there is to say.
4.  Monograms and Manicures, who doesn't just love this one?
5.  Southern Inspirations, a gal after my own Southern design heart!
6.  The Inspired Room, yes, I am SO inspired.  


  1. I'm so flattered to be on your list! We have some favorite things in common. I try to respectfully decline tags to spare readers from having to hear about me again (two years on blogger is a long time!) and to be honest I'm swamped with work, but thanks so much for thinking of me.


  2. Thank you, Style Court. Your response was so polite, I like your style even more! Looking forward to reading more from you.-GSG

  3. is there any other way to make sweet tea other than with real sugar that you have to melt with the hot tea? love it!

  4. Ah, thank you. I am honored! Now, what is Apple TV? Need to find out. I am a mac fan but I don't think I know what that is. I assume it has to do with Apple Macs, not just tasty fruit?

    Thanks again for tagging me!!!

    Happy day,

  5. Melissa,
    If you'll look at my tag once more, I've added a link just for you. Look for the pink "APPLE TV". It will take you directly to Apple's website discussing what all Apple TV will do. It's really a GOOD THING. -GSG

  6. It is 10:30 & I’m supposed to be packing for Atlanta as I type, but wanted to let you know that I would love to play tag--sounds fun! Funny, I spent all last weekend watching Mad Men—I don’t even watch TV but love that show. I have also wanted to cancel my cable but may have to try Apple TV. And I have a 12 year old basset hound and can very much relate -- seeing them age is very difficult. Oh one more thing & I better start packing-- great blog – I look forward to catching up!

  7. Thanks for you tag! I will do it tomorrow! Also, i just started watching Mad Men this weekend too!

  8. Good Home has been in the doldrums for so long that I'm grateful for the impetus to post something, anything!

    Thanks for the encouragement.

  9. You have to share your china patterns with us! I LOVE china! The Belk's here in Charlote has an impressive china department. When I visit I feel like a child in a candy store.

  10. Thanks for the information, this is very useful. Allow me to share a health article here, which gods are beneficial to us. Thank you :)
