Welcome White Wednesday and Fall Party

I am honored to accept the Honest Scrap Award from Queen Bee !
Thank you so much, if you haven't visited her blog please do so - she is fairly new to blogland, as I am, and she has an awesome site and is such a sweetheart...
So for any of you that isn't familiar with this award;
I have to be totally honest about 10 things you might not know about me and then I pass the award to 7 bloggy friends that have influenced or helped me. They take the award and in turn tell 10 honest things about themselves and pass the award on to 7 etc...
So here goes:

1. I am an artist and preachers daughter - and have 1 sister and 1 brother.

2. I lost one of my brothers to a hunting accident when he was 18 years old,

3. I have been married 3 times and my husband and I have been married going on 20 years.

4. I have 6 children - I had 3 of them by the time I was 21 years old.

5. I hate water... don't like to drink it or swim in it.

6. I have gained 30 lbs in the last 2 years due to a thyroid problem and I hate it!

7. I dislike rainy days and love the sunshine.

8. My husband does the cooking - I quit after 6 kids and 30 years of it.

9. My favorite show is "Lost", other than that I am not a tv person.

Last but not least

10. I was fortunate to have been raised in the knowledge of the Lord and have known Him all my life.

I just want to say thank you for all your wonderful comments and encouragements these past months that I have met all of you wonderful blogging friends. It has been truly an honor to have met all of you and call you friends.

And now for the 7 wonderful bloggers who I think we should all get to know better and receive this award. It is up to you what you want to do with it, if you can't accept it--I understand --no problem otherwise here goes:

White Wednesday
Welcome to White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm be sure to visit her blog for more wonderful whites today!

I am cheating today and combining yesterdays Fall Party with today's White Wednesday. I have been busy at the shop bringing in Halloween and time is getting away from me. I will be posting Halloween later in the week.

Welcome to the Fall Party...
hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses
Please stop by her blog to see a fabulous fall display.
My favorite time of year is Fall... although this year it is coming so fast, I don't know where the summer went...
I love the white pumpkins - they fit my color scheme much better than the orange so I try to decorate more in the neutral tones. The browns, rusts and creamy whites are more to my taste. It is a little early for white pumpkins around here but they are becoming available more this week and I will be getting more in the shop.

Some of my projects for fall...
I made these white vintage fabric pumpkins out of vintage lace and trims

Thanks so much for stopping by I always appreciate hearing from you and thank you Rhondi for a great party, I hope all of you have a great week.
