When I asked my hubby to help pull a name for my giveaway he was so happy to oblige. He made such a big production of shaking up the bag of names, moving his hand around and around - then he pulled one out and said - "The official winner is Marie". I told him thanks for doing such a good job and took the winner's comments and headed back to the computer to post the winner's name. Marie - I don't remember a Marie on the list - I looked at the comment but I can't see without my reading glasses - so off I go to get my glasses. Then I saw it - the winner was Mari of A Pocket Full of Roses. Congratulations, Mari, I am so happy that you will be receiving my little giveaway. Mari is the sweetest blogging friend. Email me Mari so I can get your address and I will be packing it up and mailing it off Monday before I go on vacation.
Thank you to all of you for participating. I wish I could have given something to each of you. And since it was so much fun, I am planning my Blogaversary giveaway already and anticipate doing something a little bit different with my blog later this year. As you can see I love to paint but what I have not shown is my furniture transformations. I recently purchased a new paint sprayer which will make the painting faster and once I get the hang of it I will be posting my before and after pics. Also expect to see a few tutorials within the next coming weeks!! Have a great weekend!
I was raised in the South - where football is every breath we breathe, flip flops are year round, we pull over to let a funeral procession pass, we don't have fireflies - we have "lightning bugs", "tatars and maters" are mandatory, "yall" is a proper noun, chicken is fried, biscuits come with gravy, banana pudding is dessert, we drink "sweet milk" and sweet tea is the house wine, and you NEVER, EVER DISRESPECT YOUR ELDERS, especially family, 'course that is Southern raising.

God Bless our Military
It is the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of press.
It is the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the Military, not the politicians, that ensures our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
What my parents taught me....
Religion - "You better pray that comes out of the carpet!" Logic - "Because I said so, that's why" Irony - "Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about". Wisdom - "When you get my age you will understand". Justice - "One day you will have kids, I hope they turn out just like you".
'When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a singe bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything You gave me." '~ Erma Bombeck
