My Acceptance Speech

Bonjour from Campagne Maison



I have been graciously awarded two awards from Maggie, at:


http://normandylife.blogspot.com/


Today I will address this one, the Kreativ Blogger award. I am suppose to reveal seven things about myself that a lot of people do not know. Heck, I could write a book on things that a lot of people don't know about me, but like Maggie says.... some things are better kept secret !!!!

1. My "Make a Wish" ultimate dream come true would be for Debbie Travis and her crew to pull up in my driveway and crash my house from top to bottom and perform a complete home makeover. Debbie is by far, my #1 favorite designer of all times! Anything she did at my house would suit me to a "T". (OPRAH, your favorite saying is "Don't give up on your dreams"...so, if you are reading this, do you think you could help make MY DREAM come true ???)

2. I was given an Angelic vision confirming my healing from cancer. In the vision there were 5 Angels whose demeanor took on various forms at different points in the vision. It is something that is very difficult to describe and explain. I often think about John when he was on the island of Patmos and how he described his visions as recorded in The Revelation. There are just some things that cannot be translated by the human tongue. I always try to give God the glory for my healing and to be a witness of His great gift to me.

3. I prefer to sew STANDING up rather than sitting down. Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know!

4. I always wanted to be a Wedding Planner and own a full service Bridal Shop. I love everything about weddings--from engagement to honeymoon and all points in-between!

5. Somehow I managed to live thru the 60's without smoking pot. I have never been drunk or used mind altering street drugs. My guess is that it had A LOT to do with me getting married at age 16 to an older man who had no desire to expose me to those sorts of things.

6. I am HOWEVER addicted to coffee. I get up out of bed at 4:30 a.m. a lot of mornings, just to have my coffee.

7. I have so much fun watching "Dog the Bounty Hunter"!!!! Am I crazy or what??


I started blogging as a journal of sorts, to record some of the remodeling adventures here at the farmhouse and it turned into so much fun that I often use it as an outlet to "vent". It has been a life long desire of mine to be able to move into a house that had a history and somehow restore some of the previous owners sweat, blood, and tears back into the home with respect to their previous efforts. The longer I am here, the more I listen to the house and yes, these Walls do Talk!!

I have met so many wonderful blogging friends and learned so much about different crafts, collectibles, history and customs. I spend a lot of my quiet time each morning visiting with bloggers from all over the world and I try to meet a new friend everyday!

I hope that my blog inspires others to RE-purpose, RE-finish, and RE-cycle whenever possible. By doing so, we can all do our part to help keep OUR planet GREEN!

A special "Thank You" to Maggie for nominating me for these awards. I do hope that I can spread the love and shall start with the next 7 nominations--and they are:

Hi Jacque,
Wow! So much fun getting to know a little more about you. I want you to know that #2 has totally intrigued me now! Wish I knew all the story. Congratulations on your award. Wishing you a wonderful evening. Blessings.

What a sweetie you are to nominate me. Thank you, thank you very much, in my best Elvis Presley voice :)

I'll definitely need some time to think about it....I just had a similar nomination and it was heart wrenching to get out all my "stuff" in a post. LOL, I was so afraid everyone would think I was uh, nutty, or something.

I will keep your continued healing in my prayers. Hugs.

Good morning Jacque,

Congratulations on your award. I love learning more details about my blogger friends. That was very interesting indeed.

Thanks for nominating me, but I don't participate in awards or tags or anything like that, but I do appreciate the thought.

I hope you'll be having a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by and visiting me ;-)

Have a blessed day,
Doris

Just wanted to let you know that I tried emailing you, but the address wouldn't work for me.

Anyway, you have been on my heart over and over again since yesterday. I just wanted to let you know that God keeps putting you in front of me. Is it to pray, to connect, to stop by and say hi, or maybe all of the above. :)

Hugs, Marla
