Seven things about me that you do not know...

 Well my life isn't all that exciting it is hard to choose 7 things that you might want to read...

1. I live alone with my kitty Leo... he is the love of my life... he puts a smile on my face everyday.

2. When I look back I realize that I inherited my re-creating gene from my father... who was always scouring an  old attic or a dump pile and bringing it home to clean up and was so excited to make the finds... he found some pretty amazing things and are worth a fortune today.

3  My brother and I used to dumpster dive at a near by spinning mill... we made that our Sat. morning ritual at a very young age... oh yes we did Mom and I know we weren't supposed to cross that busy street but that never stopped us.  We were sure to look both ways because we knew getting caught by you would hurt more than being hit by a car.

4. I always attribute my creative skills back to my childhood... we were a family with little means and if you wanted something you made it... I remember my sister and I making Barbie doll furniture out of kleenex boxes, scraps of material that my mother had leftover from making one of us an outfit... we used the shelves in our closet as the house... the top shelf being the upstairs and so on... we spend many hours in that closet...

5. I love anything wood... I love pieces that have a story... and if they don't I am making one up... I love to decorate and I can be so much more objective at a friends house than I can my own... my friends are always making me tweek their houses...

6. I am a sucker for a good decorating book...I can't pass one up... I have 2 bookcases full of them... when I need inspiration I close my eyes and pick one... I usually get through a couple of pages and then the juices start flowing again and off I go.

7. I work 4 days at my real job as a bookeeper for a construction/foundation forming company... I am the only female amongst 45 guys... mothers teach your boys to clean up after themselves please... LOL... Friday is my creating day... I can't wait to get out of bed to get going on a project...

Well that is my story in a nutshell... nothing too exciting... now on to the 7 nominees...

There are so many great blogs out there this is a hard one...

1 DeeDee's Craft Spot ... DeeDee is one of the sweetest people... she is always there to leave you such a kind comment and her work amazes me... nothing escapes her talent...

3.The Better After blog ... she showcases everyones remakes... I just can't get through a day without checking this one out...

4.The Elegant Thrifter ... I just found Stan last week... he is such a sweetheart... he has a new book that I just ordered and can't wait to get my hands on it ... he will send you a signed bookplate to personalize your copy... it is nice to help a fellow blogger and thrifter make it big time...
