I Won! I Won! I Won! Yippee!!!!!

I am the lucky recipient of Glenda's (Many Fond Memories) 100th post giveaway!!! I am just thrilled! I am new to this blogging world and I am so totally addicted - probably more addicted to reading about what everyone does than posting myself, but I am trying to be better about it.

My daughter, Rachel, also started a blog and she is doing so great with it - I am so impressed. I would love for you to stop by her blog at http://www.rachelspictureperfect.blogspot.com/. She posts a picture every day and even posted for Sky Watch Friday last week and she received the most comments ever on that post. I get so inspired with what everyone does with their blog and I just think this is so much fun!! The creativity is amazing. I like to think of myself as a creative person. Blogging is a new way to blossom - I hope!!

I wanted to share with you my lucky find at Marshall's last week. This beautiful centerpiece was only $5!!!! It has a small chip on the rim, but you can only see it if you are really looking for it. Isn't the lace runner just beautiful? I purchased the runner from Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses. I LOVE the way it looks on my table. Thank you Rhondi!!

About a week and a half ago I had a found a beautiful runner at the Palm Beach Goodwill store.
I am really into runners. I really want to do a post soon with the different runners I have and how they can so change the look of your table. This most recent runner (aside from the beautiful lace runner from Rhondi), is not long enough for my dining room table, but I think it looks great on the server in my dining room. I am so pleased with it. What do you think?
Has anyone read The Last Lecture? I just bought it and am anxious to read it. I love books like that. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet. It's the actual last lecture of Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon. He has terminal cancer and wrote this lecture not only for his students, but for his children, as well as himself. I've only read the first chapter so far, but it is wonderful!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Why thank you so VERY much for advertising my blog! I just love you SO VERY MUCH! The runner does look beautiful on the dining room table, as well as the runner on the server. I always love to see the beautiful ideas you put towards our home. It always gets better and better, and I can't wait to see all your creative ideas that are yet to come! I love you mommy! (;
