I {heart} Books

Many of you know the card in my wallet that sees the most action is my library card!  Read Across America is celebrated on March 2 this year.


It's fun to review the reading challenges and suggested book lists.

Tuesdays with a Twist

Our news this week...  We are back from a lovely vacation in Alabama!  It was wonderful to be away for a while, but there's just no place like home.  ;-)  So, now I am suddenly into Spring Cleaning and need to lower the number of books overflowing onto every surface of our home.  Check HERE for giveaway details!

Our view last week on Dauphin Island

I am so glad you are here to party today!  There is no limit on links as long as they are family friendly including giveaways, Etsy shops and other link parties.  Please remember to visit some fellow party animals and leave positive comments!

Cubicle Sweet Cubicle - De stash Challenge Blog Hop


There are days we spend more time in our cubicles than we spend in our homes, right?



After sewing a MUG RUG for my daughter in vibrant colors, she asked if I could create something to hang on her cubicle walls.

You're the Star Blog Hop {February} and a Giveaway

Y'all know how much I love books, and even though I check our library before making a purchase, my shelves are overflowing, so I would like to find good homes for some of them.  These two are lovely and have been read only by me.  Please see giveaway info below, if you are interested in receiving one of my precious books.  

Oh, gee!  Did I just sound like Gollum?

jeulia Valentine's Day Engagement Rings Sale 2018

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post by jeulia.  All opinions are mine.


Handsome Husband and I were wed way back in 1986 (before the internet gasp!).  We visited a local jewelry store together and chose our set, two wedding bands and a solitaire engagement ring.  On one of our milestone anniversaries, he purchased a larger one for me.  Sadly, both have been stolen.  I was thrilled when an email for jewelry landed in my inbox!  Are you familiar with  jeulia ?  This company offers a wide selection of designs and is surprisingly affordable!  You should see me cruising their website!
