What a kind award from Hopsy or Kappa Prep from Manicures and Monograms! She's such a doll and fun blogger.  We seem to share a similar design aesthetic as well as several other things!  If we were in the same town, we would be museum pals for sure!  She has bestowed upon me the Honest Scrap Award: brilliant in content or design. Wow!
(Here's Hopsy.  Is she cute, or what?)

I do hope that all of you have a good time looking at my blog. I think it is so important that we surround ourselves with things of beauty. DON'T GET ME WRONG--I'm not just talking about material possessions--I'm talking about wonderful, loving people too! Life is too short for us not to embrace one another and the lovely all around us! (That beauty includes the smiling faces of little people with mashed bananas and cereal all over the place!)

Now I'm supposed to give you some honest facts about myself.  Well, here goes:

1.  I'm particular about my shoes.

2.  I only drink Coca Cola when I eat pizza.  Other than that, I don't consume soft drinks.

3.  I need at least nine hours of sleep to be a decent member of society.

4.  Today is my birthday.
Antique silver goblets hemstitched monogrammed linens by Leontine Linens and a colorful floral arrangement give the table timeless appeal.
(and this is my fall china pattern-but just a web picture)

5.  I love good conversation: story telling , front porch sitting conversation more than food.
