ME ME Award!!!



I usually don't do awards cus ,but I thought this one was interesting and fun, I was given the award from Marisa at http://marjean-gettingbacktobasics.blogspot.com/ I just started reading her blog its full of great recipies and she has a great perspective on life! thanks Marisa



The rules to this award are as follows:
1) share 7 tidbits about yourself
2) share this MeMe Blog Award with 7 blogger friends


ok 7 things about me..................

1-I'm a "closet" extrovert...I appear to be shy and introverted until I get to know you, then watch out!!!

2.I like change..I change my decor, colors on the wall ,move my furniture, drive differeant ways to work,..my poor husband does not know what he will find when he comes home.

3. I studied in Europe, Univ of Madrid..but I can't remember what I studied, only the endless parties! :-)

4. I can't kill anything...I move spiders and bugs carefully outside..

5. I love decorating , and prefer to use old items , fixing and finding new ways of using them
for my home...I get more enjoyment over a thrift store treasure I can paint then any new furniture I could ever buy!
6.I collect fabric and vintage linens...ok ...its a much bigger thing than collect..I can't have enough...I have so many I hide them from myself in boxes and pack them in my garage..because I am embarrased of my addictions.

7.I love dressing in t shirts and jeans..after years of coporate suits and nylons...I am finnally free!

You're welcome,
A "closet introvert"...I guess there is a little of that in me too. I am also a yard sale and Frenchy junkie, always have been and always will be.I get a "high" whenever I find something that someone has discarded as junk, but with a little paint or sometimes just a good cleaning, it becomes a treasured item in our house.

I will certainly be checking out the other blogs you have listed here.
