I am a Newbie

Miss Debbie over at

has been my blogging friend for over a year, maybe we are getting close to 2 years now????
I'm into design blogs and love her style so that was the original interest but
She has so much energy and does all these awesome projects too
but she also loves to help others with her time
as in starting this
 ~newbie party~
to help us bloggers that are wanting to build our followers
and get the hang of all things blogging...
But I have to say that mostly
I love Debbie
 because day in and day out she is kind, considerate and a very lovely lady!
Thank you my friend
for your friendship and time
I have some really new fun places to visit now
because of

Things I love
I have had company and been busy with some family stuff
the last couple of weeks and have had nothing new to post on
so I thought I would go to my stash of favorites to give you an idea of what
~I love~
first and foremost
my kids and grandkids
My 3 Grands...

Miss Madeline

Her brother
*Charlie Bear*

And their mother

And their cousin
*Matthew Man*

his  parents

I love all things
~Shabby Chic~
Be still my beating heart...
Rachel Ashwell's
dining room

I love traditional

I love farm style... 
This is Rachel Halvorson of

Awesome blog

I can't help it I love pink...

I would LOVE to have this
with a dozen ladies living in there

Is this still farm style?
I don't know what to call it
but I love it

I love white

But then again I love color

European shabby elegance?
ahhhh..... love 

Maybe you'd like to a have a glass of wine before
So as you can see I like it all
This is why it is so hard for me to decorate
too many beautiful decisions to make

I would love to have you follow along

I've gotten lots of inspiration from you all
and I've got lots of projects ahead

  14. Euro-shabby is one of my fav looks as well! I couldn't pull it off, but I love to look at it and imagine myself holed up in a little Paris pension, eating small bits of cheese, wearing skinny black pants, and having great hair.


    Your blog is adorable. I am following!

  15. Your grandchildren are absolutely precious!!
