Highlighting "Twirl and Taste" and Some Odds & Ends

I was visiting Libby Murphy at her beautiful blog,Twirl and Taste, this week and found that she has a wonderful giveaway going on. It's a darling 7 piece French Home etched wine set. I must tell you that I have fallen in love with it! Libby posts fabulous recipes every day and fun stories about people you read about in the newspaper and magazines. I especially enjoy reading Libby because she is from the same place I am originally from, near Knoxville Tennessee.  Libby talks like my people, she cooks like my people, and she makes me feel like I'm home again when I visit her. Libby's current post includes a wonderful southern recipe for Refrigerator Rolls.  I remember my own mother making these.  So if you haven't done so yet, check Twirl and Taste out soon - I think you'll love it!


This Blog:
"Contains Brilliant Content and/or Design"
 "It's Creator Has Been An Encouragement To Me"

One of the sweetest and classiest ladies in blogland, Kat, Just A Beach Kat, sent me this sweet blog award last week.  Coming from this beautiful, classy lady, the award is an honor.  I'm going to pass the Honest Scrap Award along to:

1. CeeKay, Thinkin' of Home - My old friend encourages me, keeps track of what's going on with me, and she prays for me faithfully.  She has shared her life, her family, and her friendship with me for nearly 30 years. Plus she has an awesome blog of "brilliant content and design" and she is the one who introduced me to blogging nearly two years ago!

2. Janie, Blondie's Journal - Janie writes beautifully (check out her current post) and she's a lovely new friend

3. Suzanne, Southern Inspiration - What a lovely lady Suzanne is - and she writes a beautiful blog!  She's been a source of encouragement to me.

4. Bernideen, Bernideen's Tea Time Blog - Bernideen's blog is filled with the most beautiful tea related things and she is just a wonderful, encouraging lady too.

5. Libby, Twirl and Taste - I've just got to add Libby tothe list because of all the reasons I listed in the beginning of this post!

6. Catherine, Catherine de the Cups - Catherine has a classy, beautifully written blog and she has been so lovely to write me encouraging notes during the paast months that my father has been so ill.  Thank you, Sweet Catherine!

7. Ro, A Hint of Home - I can't tell you how many times Ro has written me notes and comments to let me know she is praying for me.  What an encouragement!  Plus, her blog is just filled with photos of her beautifully decorated home and tutorials for crafts and projects.

Here are the rules for the Honest Scrap award:

1) Post "10 Honest Things" about myself.

2) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

3) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

Ten Honest Things About Me:

1.  I love plain white cake so much that I could eat one all by myself in a weekend!

2.  On average, I go to bed at about 3:00 AM and sleep about 4 or 5 hours.

3.  I sleep with both a fan and an electric blanket on year round.

4.  The beach feels like church to me.

5.  I met my husband when I was 15, became engaged to him when I was 16, married him when I was 17.

6.  I despise dishonesty.

7.  I actually DO NOT pray that my son and DIL will have quads, even though I may have on occasion hinted that I do.  I'm not sure why - just a mean streak I guess.  Well, yes, I do know why.  It makes my son crazy, especially if I hint the quads might ought to be all girls!  Oh, the fun in turning the anxiety around once in a while!

8. I have watched General Hospital since I was coming home from elementary school to watch it on my lunch hour.

9.  I did not rest on my beloved deck swing ALL SUMMER LONG - why, why, why???

10.I start getting depressed in August because summer is almost over and I CANNOT enjoy Autumn because the trees will be naked and my garden will be bare soon, and the seemingly endless winter will over take us any minute.  I know...I need an attitude adjustment.

Ok, ladies, I spilled my guts.  Your turn!




Have a beautiful week, ladies!

You need to get out and swing on your swing and I loved what you said about the beach:) Oh and I have probably eaten an entire cake by myself some time in my life but memory fails me for the exact year or should I say years:)

Hi Kathy,
You are the sweetest thing! Thanks for thinking of me. I feel so honored that you thought well enough of me to extend it to me.
I have already received it and thought you might want to pass it on to someone who does not have it on their sidebar.
You're a great friend.
