Welcome

Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Anniversary Giveaway

Hi y'all and hope everyone is having a great day so far.  I was driving to TN yesterday just singing along with the radio and Clarice let me know right away that this was not acceptable to her.  I'm used to Mark objecting to my singing but the cat....guess I should finally give upon my dream of singing in a band.  Seriously, Clarice and I drove up by ourselves so I was thinking ok "Girl Trip" but she was unimpressed with my singing and yowled to let me know just how unhappy she was.  So as she napped and I just daydreamed which in retrospect wasn't a good choice since I was the one driving...lol.

I just started thinking about when I started blogging and realized it was 4 years ago in January.  Wow I was really surprised when I realized that because we've had a lot of life changes in these past 4 years.  Let's see I went from working professional to SAHM to my sweet baby Clarice.  We also have lived in 2 different states and countries, had some amazing adventures and some really rough times but that's life and I'm happy to be sharing it with y'all.  So I have decided to host my first ever giveaway of some of my favorite things.  I have no idea exactly what it will be but you can bet it'll include some munchies, some stitching and of course some antiques.  Just leave me a comment on this post before February 20th and Clarice will pick the name of the lucky winner on the 22nd. 

Now I'm gonna leave you with a little picture of my baby and hope you do something today that makes you smile!

  14. Happy blogiversay! My cat used to "reprimand" me when I sang as I played the piano...she would give a stuttering meow, and then if I didn't stop, she would oh-so-gently close her teeth around my ankle, LOL!!!

  15. Congratulations on your 4 year blog anniversary!! I have a cat that just talks to me all day - even when he is outside he moves from window to door and so on talking to me. Such strange creatures aren't they!
