  1. Wow! Twice? Thank you so much. I don't usually do this kind of thing but I will post 7 little-known facts for you!

  2. Michele,

    I am so flattered that you have selected me. While I'm happy that you are enjoying my blog due to time I'm just not able to accept this award. I should put an award free button on my blog to let others know. I did become a follower and I love all the GW makeovers on your blog.


  3. I am so sorry that I haven't been by lately...things at this homestead have been busy!
    I am so glad that you left me a gave me the perfect excuse to spend a moment and get caught up on reading my favorite blogs!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for stopping by...You are a brave soul.... Seems life is going 'Click, Click, Click'... Then...Everything falls apart...My blog started out, as a journal, strictly about antiquing... funny thing...turns out, Antiquing is my life...and my blog... well... it's my Diary... sometimes, I forget, others actually read it... It has become my daily therapy session.... and my followers... well... they are the Angels, God has sent, to try and keep me sane...
    Thank you, for following...but...beware... my blog is a kind of bumpy ride...
    I guess...that's life...
    Barb C.
