Tagged--For the Name Game

I've been tagged for the Middle Name Game by Cassie . I've also tagged 4 others, so if you've been tagged here is what you do.........

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My middle name is

K - Keeping myself sane is a full time job.

A - Always love to paint!

Y - Yes, painting helps keep me sane.

E - Enough of this game I have to go paint. LOL

Oh man I have to tag 4 blogger now. Lets see I pick Robin, Laura, Mel and Steph who is one of the gals that got me hooked on blogging to begin with. Have fun ladies.

Woosh, I am finally done with the suitcase!

Lookie what I have listed on ebay, I bought this suitcase at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. Love those city wide yard sales.
I painted the scarecrow side first and any of my friends and family will tell you that once I paint one side I am usually finished. But I knew it would sell better if it could be used for 2 seasons, so I painted the awesome little snowman on the other side.
Click on my ebay link at the side if ya want to check it out. Love those Terrye French patterns.

Look who I got to see!

Ok so I didn't get to see him in person, but I was still just as excited. My son Kurt got pass and was able to use the USO internet and webcam. The USO is awesome.

He looked good even though he was very tired it was 2 a.m. there. Oh this brought me so much joy, I have never wanted to hug my laptop monitor so much. We were chatting on MSN and I couldn't seem to post much as I just kept staring at him, it really did do a lot for me just to see him. Oh how I wish I could just hold him.

I just keep chugging along, one day at a time, knowing that when one day passes that bring me one day closer to his return. We are expecting him home in Feb. of 2008.

Red & White enamelware collection.

Kelle at Two Dancing Crows challenged the bloggers at Primitive & Rustic 2 to post their collections. I'm a little behind all of the other girls but this seemed so fun I didn't want to miss out. So better late than never.
As you may have guessed by my banner one of my collections is red and white enamelware. I started collecting it for my kitchen and have so much of it that I have had to deposit some of it on the back porch and in the bathroom.
I was to happy when I won the bid on the canisters on eBay, I know they are not old but they fit in so well with the rest of my collection.
I have picked up my enamelware at antique shops, yard sales, eBay and my son bought me the bucket on year for Christmas. I paid a little too much for the strainer on eBay but it was one of those "I have to have it items".

I have joined A Gathering of Crows!

A Gathering of Crows is an awesome group of very talented primitive artist and I was so honored when Vanessa asked me to join them.
