When I opened the box, the first thing I saw was this beautiful book.
I was thinking of doing that, until I found this in my box of treasures. Okay, I'll have to fill my mug with this wonderful tea, and sit down with my beautiful new book, and just enjoy my winnings!
I LUV these napkin rings. I almost didn't want to show them to you, because I can't wait to do a tablescape and use these beauties and I wanted to impress you with what fabulous napkin rings I had!
Now I have to post something I'd really rather not post. I have a big apology to make. Sweet Lorna at Lace and Ivy Cottage tagged me to do the lists of 8's. I think it involved listing about 40 items about me. Lorna had posted some fabulous lists, and I was honored that she tagged me to participate. I had every intention of following through with the tag. Lorna, I apologize, but, as flattered as I am that you would ask me to give any more information about myself than I've already given on this blog, I'm declining to do it. I just can't think of that many interesting things to post about me. When I started making my lists, I wasn't even interested in what I was listing! Wow! I have a dull life! Everything I thought about putting on my list, I had already said in a previous post. Uh Oh! That may mean I have to give up blogging. I've already said everything I have to say! Lorna, please forgive me for not following through on this. Those of you who haven't been to Lace and Ivy Cotttage, please go by and see Lorna's beautiful blog. You will be glad you did. Thank you Lorna, and I do hope you'll understand.

WHERE AM I?
I'll blog tomorrow and today
Of course I blogged yesterday!
I'll snap a photo here and there
I'm snapping photos everywhere!
It was only a very short time ago
"Blog" was a word I didn't know.
And now, I'm there almost every day
in the Land of Blog - it's my get away!
Away from what, you might ask.
Away from any unpleasant task!
Away from vacuuming and mopping my floor
Away from cleaning toilets, tubs and more.
Away from the dusting so desperately needed,
Away from the garden that should be weeded,
Away from that large pile of dirty clothes,
Away from the drudgery and all of my woes!
Part of my house, I sometimes clean,
because pictures of it will soon be seen
by those who visit my blog each day,
and have such lovely things to say.
But I can't get my house all shiny and clean,
because I AM the blog-visiting queen!
Though my king would surely like to see
A sparkling clean house-it's not to be.
I start out to visit just a blog or two
and end up visiting more than a few.
If blogging folks weren't so darn creative,
I might not have become a Blogland native.
Those who don't blog cannot understand
when I'm at my laptop - it's another land!
There's not a logical explanation I can give,
cause even I'm not sure in which land I live
Thanks so much for coming to visit my blog. laurie
