LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

I've Been Tagged

I joined a swap the other day. It is a Kentucky Derby Hat swap hosted by Bristol at Cottage by the river, go sign up, it looks fun !!! Also, I am going to do a birdhouse or two for Karla and Beth's Bling your Birdhouse event on March 27th. That looks like a lot of fun !!Speaking of Birdhouses, I offered my first sweet Cottage Birdhouse for the New Year on ebay last night. I love this one !! Sweet Pinkness !! :) I have made a series of these over the years, that I will be showcasing on March 27th, the day of the birdhouse party. I just love little birdies, and their sweet homes. :)




A few goodies for Etsy. More of my lace cones for jelly beans, more sugar eggs, and a few new baskets that I will be adding this evening, with sweet hand painted wooden Robin's eggs.






And finally, I've been tagged !! Miss Cheryl, of Periwinkle Vintage has tagged me, Check out her blog, she makes the sweetest aprons and just opened an etsy store !! :) .

Here are the rules:
1. When tagged, place the "tag-er" URL and name on your blog.
2. Post rules on your blog.
3. Post 7 different things about yourself.
4. Name 7 of your favorite blogs.
5. E-mail or leave a comment for those 7 people so they know they've been tagged.

Ok 7 things :

1. I became a Christian, and got " saved " at 30. Best decision I have EVER made, and it has changed my life in ways you could not imagine for the better. I was pretty lost back then, lots of hurts and scars, and now I am one HAPPY Chick !!! :) :) :)

2. I moved out at 15.

3. My husband and I got engaged after two months of dating. Married after 8 months. ( I made him wait for six more months after he asked so I wouldn't give my mother a heart attack, lol. ) We met online. Yes, REALLY. lol. We have been together 6 happy years, and will be together till we die. :)

4. I ran a weight loss clinic, was a faux finisher, managed a furniture store, was on staff at church as a nursery director, managed a lampshade store, owned a furniture store, owned a mini store at a flea market selling tole painted items, and waitressed for a day , but quit as I didn't like it.

5. I have been married three times. Third time is a charm. :)

6. I Was a cat person, till I got my first dog, and now I am a dog person for life. :)

7. I have really nice feet. lol. My toes are perfectly aligned, all in a row. :)

Ok, Now I tag, Vickie, Karen, Connie, Steph, Ele, Bertie, and Hope. :)

Hugs,

Rhea
