SO VANNA,TOMARIE,LAURIE,GLORIA,
DEBBIE,CHRISTINE,KATHY,CHARI, LYNNE,
AND CINDY HERE WE GO....


AS YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE ROOSTERS EVERY
WHERE.I COLLECTED DUCKS FOR EONS AND I'M
SORRY MR AND MRS DUCK,BUT I GOT SO SICK OF \
DUCKS.....



I HAVE SO MUCH CABINET SPACE IT'S HEAVENLY.
AND I ALWAYS WANTED AN ISLAND.THE NIGHT
WE MOVED IN WE SAT HERE AT THE ISLAND AND
WE STILL DO.SEE THE BAR STOOLS I DOLLED UP
THAT MY DH THOUGHT WAS GLORIOUS?MEN,WHO
CAN FIGURE THEM OUT.OF ALL THE THINGS I'VE
PAINTED,SEWN,MADE,RE-MADE,HE THOUGHT
THEY WERE THE CAT'S MEOW.HE EVEN TOLD
SOME OF THE GUYS AT WORK ABOUT THEM???


I MADE OR RATHER RE-COVERED THE CORNICE.
I DIDN'T HAVE ANY STAPLES.AND YOU KNOW US
WOMEN.WHEN WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING,WE
WANT TO DO IT NOW.......................SO I HAND SEWED
EVERY STITCH.SEE THE GLASSED CABINET?THAT'S
WHERE HUBBY'S CHINA IS.


ISN'T IT FUNNY.YOU THINK YOUR KITCHEN IS
CLEAN.I SIT HERE AND THINK,WELL,ANN,YOU
COULD'VE PUT THAT UP,BLA,BLA,BLA..TOO LATE
NOW,HA.


SEE MY LITTLE HEN TEAPOT?ISN'T SHE PRECIOUS?
I HAD CUT MYSELF AND DH OFF.NO MORE ROOSTERS.
HE FOUND THIS,AND WELL,HERE SHE SITS.AWWW.

SITTING THERE.



THE BAG HANGING OUT THERE HOLDS
MY PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS.I'M ALWAYS
FINDING USES FOR THEM.DH HATES
THEM.SO I CAMOUFLAGE THEM.TEE HEE.



ROOSTERS,ROOSTERS.I DO HOPE I NEVER
TIRE OF THEM.THERE'S SO MANY
DIFFERENT ONES.OF ALL THE ROOSTER
ADDICTS THAT WERE ON RMS.I HARDLY
EVER SAW 2 ALIKE.

SEE THE LITTLE WALL POCKET?WE
FOUND THAT YEARS AGO AT A FLEA
MARKET.WHEN DH PICKED IT UP.I
THOUGHT,UGH.NOW,SHE'S ONE OF
FAVS.
SEE MY STANDING ROOSTER?FOR
SOME REASON,A MAN CAN HARDLY
EVER WALK BY HIM WITHOUT
TRIPPING.US WOMEN NEVER HAVE
A PROBLEM.WHO KNOWS!!!!!!!

I HAVE A FEW SIGNS.THIS IS MY ALL

A NEW AWARD ,TRASH TO TREASURE TUESDAY AND TABLESCAPE TUESDAY

Mary Lou of
http://buttercreamcottage.blogspot.com/

presented me with the special

"Proximidade" award. This award

is a fine one because it focuses not

on the glory and fanfare of blogging,

but in the PROXIMITY to one

another through this on-line

world (kind of a Six Degrees

of Separation sort of thing)

."Blogs who receive this award

are 'exceedingly charming'

say its authors.This blog

invests and believes in

the PROXIMITY-nearness

in space, time and

relationships. These kind

bloggers aim to find and

be friends. They are not

interested in prizes or

self-aggrandizement.

Our hope is that when

the ribbons of these

prizes are cut, even

more friendships are

propagated. Please give

more attention to these

writers! Deliver this

award to eight bloggers

who must choose eight

more and include this

cleverly-written text

into the body of their

award."Can you believe?

I am so very thankful to

you,Mary Lou and all the

others.It truly makes my

heart feel warm and

fuzzy.And isn't it pretty

too.

Along with this I Have

to choose 8 people.I just

got this this morning,so

I will think about this

and post my eight

Wednesday.Again

thank you Mary Lou.......

















WELC0ME TO MY 2ND TABLESCAPE
TUESDAY.I WANT TO THANK MY
SWEET FRIEND AND OUR HOSTESS
SUSAN FOR DESIGNING THIS FUN
DAY.WE CAN FIND HER @\
http://http//betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
THIS IS ACTUALLY MY
3RD TIME.THE FIRST
ONE NOONE HAS SEEN.
AND OF COURSE,I
THINK IT WAS MY BEST
YET.IT WAS MY FALL
ONE.MY VERY FIRST
IN MY LIFE.AS I TOLD
SUSAN AND MY OTHER
FRIENDS.WHEN I TRIED
THIS BEFORE,IT LOOKED
LIKE THE TABLE JUST
WASN'T CLEARED OFF.HA.























THIS ONE ISN'T MY
FINEST,BUT I AM
LEARNING.AND WE
HAVE TO WORK WITH
WHAT WE HAVE.























SINCE I'M GETTING INTO
THIS,I GOT SEVERAL THINGS
FOR CHRISTMAS.MY DAUGHTER
IN LAW GOT ME 2 OF THE GOB-
LETS.(THAT IS WHAT THEY'RE
CALLED,ISN'T IT? )
MY SON.GOT ME THE
OTHER TWO.(THEY'VE BEEN
SADLY DIVORCED FOR
YEARS.ANOTHER BLOG. )
























MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING.
YEP,HIM,NOT ME,FIESTAWARE AND
GOLDEN WHEAT FOR YEARS
BOTH BY HOMER
LAUGHLIN,AS MOST OF YOU KNOW.
I'M SURE.SO-------I GOT HIM SOME
MORE OF HIS SET.NOW ALL HE NEEDS
IS A SUGAR BOWL,CREAMER LID AND
3 SALAD PLATES.





















I FOUND THESE GORGEOUS BEADED PLACE MATS
AND NAPKIN RINGS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.THE MATS
WERE $10.00 AND THE NAPKIN RINGS,I THINK WERE
$4.00.TOO RICH FOR MY BLOOD.MY SON GAVE ME
A VISA GIFT CARD.HOT DOG....I WAS POOPED AFTER
CHRISTMAS BUT....I DRUG MY POOR OLE TIRED
BODY TO THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS SALES.I GOT
THE BEADED MATS FOR $4.00 EACH AND THE NAPKIN
HOLDERS FOR $1.00.YIPEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!



















AND THE NAPKINS WERE $1.00 ALSO.TEE HEE.
TODAY I AM DOING DOUBLE DUTY.SINCE I HAVE
GOTTEN THIS CYBER VIRUS CALLED CHINAITIS
I HAD TO TRY TO DO TABLESCAPES.AND I DIDN'T
WANT TO GIVE UP MY BELOVED TRASH TO
TREASURE.SO THE ANSWER---DO BOTH.THUS
HERE WE GO.....















TODAY I WOULD LIKE TO
START OUT BY SAYING
THANK YOU TO OUR GRACIOUS
HOSTESS,DIANE @
http://diane1876.blogspot.com/.
DIANE,I JUST CAN'T
THANK YOU ENOUGH.
I HAVE SO MUCH FUN
WITH THIS BLOG....
FIRST TODAY IS A
CANDLEOBRA WE FOUND
AT A GARAGE SALE.
PERHAPS,A COUPLE OF
YEARS AGO.WE PAID
$5.00 FOR IT.THE BASE
IS MARBLE.IT IS SO
HEAVY I CAN BARELY
CARRY IT.I BE-
LIEVE THE GLASS IS
CRYSTAL.NOT SURE.
BUT IT'S PRETTY.










































































AND THIS I BOUGHT A FEW WEEKS
SGO WHEN I SNUCK OUT,REMEMBER?
THE DAY I BOUGHT THE GORGEOUS
PILLOW?AND THE PRETTY THAT
NONE OF US KNOW WHAT IT IS?BUT
IT'S PRETTY,HA...I THOUGHT IT WOULD
BE FUN TO USE IN THE SPRING AND
SUMMER MONTHS.
























THESE PILLOWS I ALSO GOT THAT DAY.
ALL FROM THE SAME THRIFT STORE,
$1.99 EACH.CAN YOU BELIEVE.AND NOW,
IN TEXAS,ALL FABRICS HAVE TO BE
SANITIZED.THAT MAKES ME EVEN
HAPPIER.




















NOW LOOK AT THIS SWEET LITTLE GAL.AIN'T SHE
CUTE?EBAY.HOLD ONTO YOUR CHAIRS.$3.00.CAN
YOU BELIEVE THAT?ON THE SAME PAGES WITH
HEAD VASES FOR $100.00 AND UP.SHE HAS A TAB
OF PAINT OFF HER RIGHT EYELASH AS YOU CAN
SEE.I CAN EASILY DAB SOME BLACK PAINT ON HER.
I COULD NOT BELIEVE I WASN'T OVERBID....

HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU AND WIN A KEURIG

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK A
QUESTION.IT MAY SOUND
STRANGE.LET ME EXPLAIN.
NEARLY TWENTY YEARS
AGO,I DREAMT OF THE
LORDS COMING.I'M NOT
SURE.I THINK IT WAS
JUST ME GOING TO
HEAVEN OR HIS NEXT
RETURN.(IT WAS A
DREAM).HA.
I USED TO BE A MANI-
CURIST,AND WORKED
ON SEVERAL PSCHIATRIST
OVER THE YEARS.OF
COURSE NO ONE KNOWS.
BUT I REMEMBER
TELLING THE STORY.OH ,I
COULD REMEMBER IT
FOR DAYS.THE COLORS,
GOD WAS GORGEOUS.
HE HAD LONG FLOWING
WHITE HAIR,WITH
JESUS AT HIS SIDE.ALL
THE ANGELS WERE AROUND
THEM.AND THE MUSIC,
AW------------.I STILL
THINK I CAN REMEMBER
THE BLUES OF THE
SKY.
THE DOCTOR ASKED
ME IF I HAD BEEN
SICK.NOPE.IT WAS A
DREAM THAT SEEMING-
LY CAME OUT OF NO-
WHERE.
I TRULY THINK I
REMEMBERED THE
DETAILS OF THAT
DREAM LONGER THAN
ANY OTHER.
THE DOCTOR SAID,
IT WAS TRULY
AMAZING.SHE HAD
KNOWN NO ONE IN
HER LIFE TO EVER
HAVE THIS DREAM.
ALOT OF YOU KNOW
I HAD A BRUSH
WITH DEATH ABOUT
SIX MONTHS AGO,BUT
BY THE GRACE OF GOD.
TRULY,AND GREAT
DOCTORS,I AM TRULY
DOING FABULOUS.
WELL I HAD THE
DREAM A FEW NIGHTS
AGO AGAIN.IT WAS
TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
BUT GOD CAME AGAIN.
I WOULD LIKE TO ASK,
HAS THIS EVER<>


Win a Keurig Platinum Brewing System and $50 worth of K-cups

Check out

<" It's Saturday and normally we would do a Saturday Spotlight but because SITS is slow right now, with the holidays winding down, we thought we would take today to announce our prize for January. Do you love coffee? Or tea? How about Chai? Maybe some hot chocolate? What if there was a brewer that could brew all of the above. ONE brewer that did it all one glorious cup at a time. That's what a Keurig does! "The Platinum offers the full spectrum of features including Auto On/Off, Digital Clock, Adjustable Temperature Control and the "Set Your Favorite Cup Size" option. The largest available 60 oz. removable water reservoir holds up to ten cups before refilling and the removable drip tray allows for easy cleaning and the use of travel mugs. The sleek, award-winning design is a unique footprint among Keurig's line of home brewing systems and includes both a blue lit water reservoir and blue lit LCD display." Here's the full scoop on the Keurig Platinum Brewer. And Keurig is nice enough to be giving away one of their top of the line Platinum Brewing Systems on SITS (a retail value of $199.99)!!! Tiffany and Heather will be throwing in $50 towards an assortment of K-cups. So, if you're not a coffee drinker then you can buy tea or hot chocolate. All of the K-cups are big name brands too like Celestial Seasonings, Ghirardelli, and Caribou Coffee. First, go to Keurig's website and look around. Learn a little more about the benefits of all of their great brewing systems and their K-cups. Come back here and leave us a comment to enter. Post about this contest on your blog and you'll earn five extra entries!!
