Still Here...Happy New Year!

I guess I needed a little break from the blogging world. We've had a fabulous Christmas and are chillin' out. Hope everyone else is able to relax and enjoy their families and friends....Happy 2008!

First Game of Playoffs Tonight!

We were undefeated in our region so we are starting the "next season" tonight...Playoffs baby!

******UPDATE***** We lost in the last seconds of the game. And, the only other game lost in the regular season, happened in the last 4 seconds of the game. On to basketball.

My China

I am playing along too and showing my everyday pattern and china pattern, although my everyday is actually bone china. But, according to this quote..."Top chefs all over the world use Wedgwood fine bone china every day. In fact, it is the strongest form of ceramic body known. Four Wedgwood fine bone china coffee cups will support a Rolls-Royce car!" Who knew!
Strawberry and Vine and Runymede..both by Wedgewood...

I'm Proud of You Pollsters

Most of you are using the internet for holiday shopping...I think it's great fun to put on the flannel pajamas, have a cup of hot cocoa (i mean pour a glass of wine hehe) and order in the privacy of your own home. I found some cute little goodies in the specialty shops around town last weekend during the Open Houses. I actually worked two days in one of the stores. Here are the shirts I appliqued and embroidered for the Open House at The Pine Needle. Eleven elves donned them and worked like crazy. I loved it!

Makes Cleaning Easier

I went to Fresh Market hoping they would have this Fall fragrance but no go. So I ordered from Mrs. Meyers herself and enjoyed getting a big box of cleaning supplies in this new gingerbread fragrance. Mrs. Meyer's counter spray is the best! The soy candle is burning right now! Have I told you how much I love Fall and even love daylight savings time...

"Happy Anniverary Baby...Got You On My Mi-ind"

No..not my anniversary to Mark Richt...just two posts together!

Yes, 17 years of wedded bliss TODAY! Yoohoo. To celebrate...Four Seasons Hotel, Trois Restaurant and Trish Yearwood....Okay, maybe we won't even leave the hotel. I'm pooped after this exciting week of Halloween and ...ok, sit down, I worked yesterday. Yes, at a cute little store here ...they needed extra elf help with their Christmas open house.
I just love this picture and I have been very un-sportsmanlike about our victory over Florida. I need to be thrown a flag. But Markiepoo is just telling coach where they are going to celebrate after they score the first TD! Surely, you New Jersey folks are proud of your Knowshon!

Hip Hop Harry

What a busy day filled with fun activities and running around! But, at 9:00, I say lights out and let's put our youngest to bed. So, I turn out the lights, my candy bowl is emptied and here comes a caravan of three cars. Out come three families including two adults. I find more candy and smile and say Happy Halloween. Hello? Here's a dollar, go buy a whole bag of candy and get your 2 year old in the bed! Then there was a 1979 buick parked front of my house for the next half hour and since no one ever knocked on my door, I wondered where these people were! I like my privacy, well, at home, although I expose myself right here!

Fall Football Finale!

Hubby Coach and older son in background with hat on funky and then younger son in the middle of other pic. They won both games last Saturday and ended season on a great note. Little boys are just so darn cute!
Did I say that GA BEAT FLORIDA today?!!! YOOHOO>>>

Christmas Cash, Credit Cards and Keys!

This will be the other style. It will drape across body to head out shopping! Put on a black turtleneck, jeans and go! But, with these colors, it will look great for church or festive activities. This is what I decided on the other. I have gotten a mixed range of comments and I can only hope the person who said "start over" just meant "start over and make me one"!. Also, the velvet fabric up top isn't red but a beautiful dark pink color.

Ho, Ho, Ho!

I am planning to sell bags for Christmas and the Holiday Season. I'll keep you posted. Or, e-mail me if interested!

Light Lit...

I was looking for a wonderful piece of literature for this long weekend...tried reading Remains of the Day, The Painted Veil, etc. but when I began this one, I couldn't put it down. Still working on it, but the premise so far is really bad, I mean, this woman is extraordinaire, but entertaining book. So bad, it's good!

Decorating Daughter's Domain

These walls were light pink so the chocolate really made furniture and paintings stand out. I found the most beautiful silk plaid with all of the bright colors for her window treatments and plan to use a brown zebra for bedside table, pillows etc. So...not through yet but having fun with the process...

Mama's Got a Brand New Bag

More purse-like...and, I have some new fall/winter fabrics. Just wanted to share!

Saturday, September 29, 2007


Is everyone as busy as me? It seems I have no time for this blog world.. I have a new header and I will comment on that when we finalize everything, but, so far, I love it! What do you think? Also, I thought I would let you open up with any questions you may want to ask...Anything! Off to a shower tomorrow and need to take a pic of my gift! Monogrammed six towels and rolled them up in a bamboo basket. Very Fung Shui!

Halloween Haunting...

Sort of a dark picture, but this hangs above my sink in my kitchen...You may need to click on the image to enlarge..It says "come here, my little pretty" and, no, I didn't make it:)

I'm Trying to Play Ball Mom!

We took a beating! We are young and it's just for fun, right?!

Anyone thinking about Christmas?

I wanted to try out this new monogram I had. Put it on this $1.00 towel I bought at Target in their bargain section. I bought the lime ones too that I could also use for Halloween. Inexpensive hostess gift.

Happy 40th to a Friend

This is actually a periwinkle blue, red and brown. After I wrapped it, I was thinking "Purple Hat Society". I did rewrap and took out the blue and added browns. I'm just glad my friends are finally turning 40!

Workin' It For Sure

Our Freshman boys about to attend their first Homecoming Dance after the football game. Wowza!

Happy Birthday!

My oldest is 15. This is from last night's Homecoming decorations. A couple of cheerleaders came by to decorate and say Happy B-day! Very special...and, he is #15 for the Catamounts!

A problemo..

Tomorrow is my precious son's 15th birthday! So, what he wanted was do redo his room. We have painted his room, bought him a new queen-sized bed and a new dresser. Promise to show pics soon. Tomorrow is his first Homecoming Dance too. Right now, the cheerleaders are out decorating our yard! Good times! The problem is making these bags because I have started something. My friend had a 40th surprise birthday party tonight so today I made her a bag. Just a little stressful whipping something up when so much is going on...Not complaining...Life if Good:)

A Newlywed...

must have thrown our poll off...I think I am in the norm..17 years of marriage:)

Hump Day...

Wow...It has been almost a week since I have written! This past summer, I enjoyed my coffee and blogging every morning. My creativity has been a little stifled due to...busyness of family? I don't know, as I now have my three off at school. I will put some pics on later today of my daughter's bedroom I have just repainted and remodeled and today I am painting my son's room..This is my oldest on game day...he turns 15 Friday and I am working on his room for his birthday gift. New queen bed and mattress and dresser. He's in Hog Heaven!

I'm Still Here...

Thanks for the awesome ideas with the food and meal plans. Trying hard to cook something just to avoid so much fast food. I tell my friends that Thursday is the new Friday, which means no cooking. Actually, I'm planning to make the sloppy joe recipe that JILL left on her last comment.
Another birthday bag...
