Has anyone else had a problem with the new Blog List ?
When others put my link in it does not revert them back to me. So, I tired to do it on my other blog that has that list, and their right it does not take you back to my blog, it just takes you to a page that says not found.
I thought maybe I had not put my address in correctly, but after copying and pasting my own address it still doesn't take me. So if any of you have an answer for me, I would love to hear from you.
I tried to go to the Help section, but no help.

I need everyones opinion. Even those that lurk.
What makes you come back to visit ?
Why don't you leave a comment ?
Is my site boring ?
Is my site exciting ?
Do I post about the same thing over and over again ?
Is it one of the first blog you think about when you go visiting ?
I know I am opening myself up for harsh remarks etc....., But I really want to know. I have been considering stopping my blog for lack of interest. By that I mean my numbers have dropped off so drastically. So let me know.

I wanted to share what blogging has done for me.
Late last year I knew nothing of this world of bloggers. Oh, I had heard people have their own sites but never grew interested in knowing what it was all about.
So one day after I had started cleaning around the house I decided to take a break and look up some decorating ideas. Now I have loved the Romantic side of decorating and thought I would look up that. So I put in Romantic Decorating and it took me to a few sites, and then I stumbled upon "My Romantic Home", which we all know is Cindy's site. I looked through her many pages and thought to myself this is wonderful are their others out there that have sites like this ? and how do I start something like this. So I emailed Cindy, and she responded with the information and from there I started my own blog. And what a world it has opened up for me.
I have met so many of you through email, comments etc..... Just to share ideas, recipes, ups and downs and so much more.......
I look forward to looking at all the blogs so many of you have started and at first may have not know exactly what you would do with it and you just started and it evolved into who you are and what you love.
You have shared your families, and your homes and your decorating ideas, and anything else that pops into your head. And I like this about the community of bloggers.
We can share tragedy and love, birth, and marriage. Health concerns and health tips.
And we know that we have a supporting cast in our lives.
We find out that some of us share a bond of some sort. We develop friendships and sometimes we even get to meet one another outside our web page.
And as we all know we have nay sayers as well that don't always share our point of views and that's Ok too. We are big girls and we can handle these situations with the same attention we have to our love of family and human kind. It's hard to take the knocks, but the good things we get out of those knocks are the concerns and support of those fellow bloggers.
So, blogging has been an exciting journey for me thus far and I continue to love each day, because it's like a present you open, you never know what you'll get when you go to each blog, but it's exciting and you know it's done with love intended.
Have a wonderful day !

Today is my Birthday....... Whooooppeeeee !!!!!!
I will be hopefully enjoying myself with friends and family.
I will be 52, but I think I am 32. Age is just a number and that's how I'd like to think about it. Although my body sometimes likes to slap me up side my head and say's hey stupid remember your getting old.......
Oh, shut up what to you know, your just a bunch of bones and flesh trying to tell my mind that you can't do certain things.
That's a picture of me as a new born. Look at my fists I am ready to fight the world don't cha know.

So when I think of house hunting, I don't think of looking at the houses in my area. No I go for the gusto. I look at the UK. It's the English Countryside I look at. And when I do look, I fall in love. I think this is my true decorating style.

And my attempt at the French Grey. I thought I'd start out small. I had these candle holders They were black. So after I found some grey spray paint, I decided to use these as the guinea pigs. I think I like things grey/gray. I have one more candle holder to spray to add to these, that I'll put on my coffee table.

Penny at Lavender Hill has brought to our attention a couple that are in need of prayer.
Many, many bloggers have a deep faith and belief in prayer as well as I believe in the power of prayer.
I would like to have a combined prayer day on this Wed, September 10th the same day as the Benefit Concert for them.
The name of the couple is, Stephanie and Christian Nielson. You can see their story on the link. They are parents of four children and they were in a plane accident in Arizona. Both were burned very badly. Stephanie 80% of her body and Christain 30%.
It doesn't matter what time of day on this Wednesday, just this day. Of course you can pray anytime for the couple.
I have never visited their blog, but as we all know, we don't need to know someone. All we need to know is anyone of us could be in this situation at anytime.
Please pass this around. You can go to the link on my sidebar and get the code for your blog as well, for "Nie Recovery".
Please note, this was my choice to present this. I have not done this as a request by anyone.
Well I've said it before, you never know when something will happen that is close to home. My best friend of over 30 years, Aunt was Murdered a few days ago in a murdered suicide. This is the 4th murder that has been either a friend or family this year alone, in her life. So, you just never know.

So I've been looking at a lot of blogs that are from France. And started to see a theme. Grey, it seems to be a very popular color to use in every way. Much like our whites, pinks, blues and yellow. It's simple, soft and doesn't over power.
