It's REAL LIFE...

Join in! Jessica is hosting another REAL LIFE day, see http://farmfreshiowa.blogspot.com/ for details. So, here's my take...


Curb appeal (our lovely lil home built in the 1940s, we bought it 2 years ago):
From whence I blog:
One of the MANY junk drawers:
My best feature?
My FAV piece of jewelry?
That turquoise necklace (it's NEW to me, I ordered it from Premier Designs, a woman at the school where I work sells their jewelry)....that's my fav colour!
I got a yard of pom poms (pink and orange, as you see in this card) at JoAnn's for 1.99 a yard....they're so much fun. I have a skirt with rows of them and love it. I'm thinking of adding some to more clothes...

your house is so cute! we have a lot in common, I love turquoise too!!!! It really is my fave color. And I love those pom pom trims, I found some pink pom pom trim at walmart for a little cheaper than jo's but I have bought it from jo's before too. I also got some awesome lace from walmart too. I bought 2 kinds of white, and then the beige crocheted lace that you admired on one of my layouts. Something really cool that I discovered is that I can ink the white lace and make it any color I need it to be for whatever project I'm using it on. I felt oh so clever for discovering that!!!

I love your house!!! It's so cute and your necklace is amazing! Not many people can pull of those kinds of necklaces (I can't!)!!!

I double love your house. That is my favorite style of home--I want to retire in a brick cottage-esque home.

You're so cute! Beautiful eyes.

Thanks for visiting! Love your "It's Real Life" post - I'm going to get around to doing it one of these days!

Your girls are just precious! Love your little red head. My Lulu is a red head & it's curly - I'm crazy about it!!!

Anyway, please stop by again, and I'll do the same!

The necklace... totally gorgeous. I'd wear it constantly. I think it would look lovely even with my bathrobe... :)

Beautiful house, beautiful you!

Wow, everything about you is so cute! You commented on my blog that your hubby is named Rob and is military like mine. More coincidences - I am also a PC consultant (currently on a break but still) and LOVE the Mma Ramotswe series! I posted on it recently even. Have fun!

Your home is absolutely adorable! I just love brick homes. They have such character and charm.

Your necklace is really pretty, too, as are your hazel eyes! They both compliment each other.

The card you made is too cute. I love those pom-poms that you got at Jos. They add just the right amount of movement to your card!
