Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

Trivia Time

Hello ladies, hope you are having a good weekend.  All of our snow is finally melting, yeah!  \My friend Myric over at Petites Passions has tagged me, and posed the following questions:
(sorry, blogger was NOT cooperating as I was writing this, hence the numbers being off!)
  1. Where is your ideal retiring place?
    Someplace warm and sunny!  I love the Carolinas, maybe North Carolina.
  2. Which food you do not see yourself eating?
  3. Believe it or not, steak!  I hate steak.  Oh, and I would never eat sushi, I like my meat well done, thank you:)
  4. If you have an opportunity to ask one question to your favorite celebrity, who and what question will it be? 
     Well, Robert Redford has been one of my favorites since I was a teenager and had a major crush on him!  We actually got to see him a few years ago when we were in Savanah on vacation.  He was directing the movie "The Consipirator". I was too star struck to ask to have my photo taken with him.  Plus, I don't think the police officers guarding the set would have appreciated it!  I probably would ask him some silly stupid question, like, what did he eat for breakfast that morning?
  5. What do you think is the most romantic food?
    Just about any food can be romantic, in the right setting! Take out pizza can be romantic, eaten by candle light!
  6. Who's blog do you visit the most?
  7. Ok, now you are putting me on the spot!  Yours, of course:)!
  8. If you are to award one blogger who and what would it be?
    That would be Nana Diana! She's kookey, she's funny, and she has a heart of gold!!
  9. What are you most passionate about?
  10. Ok, it's too hard to narrow it down to just one!  My crafting is so important to me!  It helps me keep my sanity!  I thank God for Etsy!  And of course spending time with hubby and our little furry girl.  Simple stuff like that!  Oh, and glitter, gotta remember the glitter!
  11. What other foreign language do you wish you could speak?
  12. French!  I try, but I would love to be fluent1  I've not practiced in a long time, I think I'm getting rusty!Which era in history would you like to go back to,and why?
  13. Believe it or not, I'd rather stay right here!  When I was younger, I was fasinated with the Victorian Era.  But then I realized that I really do love my conveniences, like contact lenses, and hot showers1  plus, I can't imagine wearing those killer corsets all day!
  14. Were you a memeber of a club in high school?
  15. No, I was way too shy!!!
  16. Do you prefer a sweet or savory dish?
  17. Do I have to choose between the two???!  Well, I have a real sweet tooth, but I also love cheese, pasta, and pizza!
Well, that's it!  I hope I've not bored you all to tears with my answers!  Mryic's rules stipulated that I tag 11 more bloggers with my own questions, but I'm going to take the liberty and break the rules, and not pass on the torch!  Enjoy your weekend!

I can not believe you were to shy in HS to belong to anything! Your HS peers missed out not having you there.

Blondie's Journal said...

Your answers are cute...especially in meeting Robert Redford. I would have been too shy as well!


NanaDiana said...

HOLY COW! You said ME? HUH? Where do I send the check? Thank you so much, Donna. lol

BTW-Some of your answers are the same of mine. We think about retiring to the Carolinas, too. Maybe the two "boys" could go fly kites (or planes) while you and I craft.

You could not PAY me to eat sushi either..and I think any meal can be romantic...of course you need someone to romance with!;>)

AND....ROBERT REDFORD has always been MY DREAM kinda guy. I have loved him since the first time I saw him.

Okay-gotta get back to MY "dream date"...uh-huh...xo Diana

Myric said...

You broke the rules my friend.lol but that's okay. It is a LOT of work anyways.
It was so much fun reading your answers. Forgive me, some of my questions were just silly!

I would never ever wanted to eat sushi before, but since I have an adventurous taste buds, I finally tried some in Nice France and after that I couldn't stop craving for it!

Question number 6. Great answer! haha. Your answers made me laugh. That was fun!


Lisa ~Suburban Retreat~ said...

I love 'trivia'. YOU were shy??? Huh!

Debbie said...

It's always fun to learn more about bloggers you visit. Yeah, Robert Redford has been a favorite of mine, too.
I knew glitter would be in there some where! LOL

Very sweet Donna...I could not agree more about Diana! You made me laugh about Mike's shirt....he looked "hot" in spite of the discomfort LOL!
