Facts for Thursday---A little about my world

Fact one: This summer we made this special treat......Skittles Vodka. The fact is, it looks great, tastes great and is very, very dangerous!!!

Fact two: I love, love getting packages in the mail!! I am addicted to ebay and etsy!! Thankfully, I also love selling on ebay and etsy, so I can continue to buy as well!!

Fact three: I love raspberries. Now I have a property that I can grow my own. The plants are loaded down with ripening berries right now!! Yay!!

Fact Four: I am a mom to nine children. Yes, all mine, all born to me. I'm 43.

Fact five: I am a giver. I love to give people things that I've found for them, made for them or baked for them. Receiving, on the other hand, is rather difficult for me.

Fact six: I love to sew. I love the feel of the fabric, lace and any other sewing medium. I love to copy the vintage style . I like pretty girl things. I have an etsy store......but, the fact is, etsy is huge, and you really get lost in the crowd.

Fact seven: My life is pretty happy. I'm adjusting to life in the country. I'm loving my new blog friends, even if you don't know you are my friends yet, I'm very optimistic !!


  1. between the skittles and the peach pie, what an awesome summer !

  2. Cute post! I love getting mail too. It's so exciting getting a package. (I live a very boring life lol) I also love to give, and raspberries, but sewing and me are clashing a lot here. Trying to teach myself. Usually I can pick up on stuff pretty quick, but sewing has been such a frustrating and slow process!

    Stopping in from the Friday Hop. New GFC Follower :) Have a great weekend!

  3. It took me awhile to get the hang of sewing as well! But after a few years of practice, I can make pretty much anything I want!! Yay!
    Thanks for the follow!!

  4. New follower - hope to get a follow back!

  5. Great way to get to know you! Congratulations on having so many children! It must be fun at your house. I can't wait to live a country life. That is our dream. New follower. Hope to see you at True Aim!

  6. Nine kids?!? Most days I think it's a miracle that I can wrangle my three. You're amazing! And I too share your addiction to buying on Ebay and Etsy. I just need to add the addiction of also selling. Haha! Thanks for linking up to our Weekend Wonders party!

  7. The selling is so much harder, the time to list, package and ship, hardly worth it!!! Thanks for visiting!!
