5-No tag backs.
Here are the questions which Melinda asked about me.
1-What is your favorite room in your home?
Oh my, I have two!! But if I must choose it would be our formal
living room. We just put in new hand-scraped hard wood floors,
and repainted the ceiling and walls French Gray and the trim
pure white. This room has a large and formal mantle with a
mirror that goes to the ceiling, a lovely wall of windows brings
in abundant light that reflects off the mirror.
2-If you could live in any home that is in a television program,
movie or book, which house would you choose?
I would love to live in a Plantation Home-similar to the one in
A Walk To Remember, or Forrest Gump. I adore the porches,
with rocking chairs, the balconies on the second floor and of
course the land and space that goes with them!! Magnolia trees
3-What is the item you dream of bringing home but it is too dad-gum expensive?
My dream is to have a conservatory! I guess, this isn't an item
that I could bring home-but it still is my dream and it is way out
of my budget!
4-Are you a morning person or nightowl?
Morning!! Honestly I am happy to get out of bed and start my
day with a wonderful cup of coffee! I have tons of energy in the
morning. I am most creative in the early hours as well.
5-What is your favorite Holiday?
Christmas! I love the traditions associated with the celebration
of Christ's birth. The baking and decorating mean alot to me,
and now that we have these wonderful grandchildren I want to
create memories for them at Grammy's and Gramps!
6-Do you think I look fat in this? And if you do why in the world wouldn't you just lie to me? JUST KIDDING! One piece or two piece bathing suit? I'm not kidding.
Two piece??!! No way-tankini please! They are actually so much
more flattering than a one-piece.
7-What is the next project you are considering for your home?
I am currently sanding and hand painting several pieces of
furniture. Our big project is adding hardwood floors to our
family room and new tile in kitchen.
8-Are you an extrovert or introvert? (Sorry... I had to put in one question in here concerning personality types.)
I am a bit of a mix-I enjoy meeting new people and I really enjoy
good conversations. I look forward to time spent with my friends
and miss them when I haven't seen them for awhile. I also, enjoy
time spent at home, fussing with my flowers, working on
projects, marveling at all the wonders of our beautiful world.
9-What feeling do you hope your home evokes when visitors enter?
I hope that when anyone visits my home, they feel welcome. I
have incorporated many of my Mother and Grandmother's
vintage pieces, along with warm yellows, natural light and plants
to create harmony. I then layer my pieces in an effort to create
a sense of abundance which feels cozy to me.
10-Where is the most interesting place you have visited?
Jackson Hole Wyoming is one of the most interesting places I
have visited. I enjoy the romance of the cowboy and the Wild
West. Not to mention the Tetons are beautifully magnificent!
11-What is the greatest joy you find in blogging?
I have two greatest joys!! I love to write and I am absolutely
loving meeting all of these talented, caring, giving, kind, crafty
and interesting bloggers! A whole new world is opening up for
me and I am enjoying every moment of it!
