Susie...This Post Is For You!

I received this beautiful tassel this weekend from my blog buddy Susie at Bienvenue. I have heard about these beautifully packaged gifts that blog buddies send, but had never received one myself. Susie, you did not disappoint. Thank you so much, the tassel is beautiful, and I love the rooster tags (how in the world did you know I adore roosters?). She had them packaged so sweetly with chocolate brown bows, I wish I had taken pictures before I unwrapped them but quite frankly paper was flying like Christmas morning (I guess I am just a kid at heart). Go look at her tassels they are amazing and I don't think she even realizes how talented she is. I am eyeing a tassel for my mom's new house so she will feel as spoiled as I do. Have a great day everyone, Paula

Here is wishing everyone a great Memorial Day weekend! I am off to the nursery to find a few new things to plant, I am inspired by Back Porch Musings (at the left). Smiles, Paula

Too Many?

I was so excited to see my friend Susie at Bienvenue (haven't learned to set up a link yet, but you can find her to the left) selling her tassels. They are beautiful! She has plucked one of her tassels with a crown out for me and I am on pins and needles waiting for it. (Susie I hope you got my email)As I type that I realize I may have a problem. (I am also wishing for a few more from The Nester also at the left) So I excitedly tell husband that I am ordering new tassels and he replies (and I quote)...."Do you think you have too many?" I was speechless, so I smiled and said that would be like getting "too many" hugs from your children or having "too many " friends or "too many good hair days"'s just not possible...then he was speechless. And that's how I play the That Was a Dumb Question game without saying "that was a dumb question." Happy Tassels to all of you...may you all have "too many". Paula

Only in Oklahoma

This is what my daughter and I passed on the way home from school today. We are avid Oklahoma Sooner fans so this was awesome. I knew when I built my dream home in the country 6 years ago that my children would have the opportunity to run free, enjoy nature, but learn some! Makes me proud to be an Okie. A Sooner schooner in our front yard..only in Oklahoma.
