I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a morning person; but I would say I'm happy to get up every morning.
I'm truly excited about the day, and excited to come here and meet with you. I know, I know, I've said it before, but it's totally true. I love coming here to see what you have to say.
Let's get you some tea, and you can sit in one of my favorite spots here in my room. I'll even let you sit in the "good" chair. So what's going on with you? I sometimes feel like I'm doing all of the talking, but I know you've got lots going on in your life.
Not that long ago, I felt I was... DIFFERENT. I'm not sure how to explain it, but I love beautiful things and DIY projects, and dishes, and entertaining. I was baffled when I had parties and the guests didn't even notice that I was using REAL LINEN NAPKINS AND SILVERWARE instead of a plastic fork and a paper napkins.
I wanted to say, "Don't you just love these hand-painted French dishes?" but I knew they would just smile at me, and say "yes dear," all the while patting hand like I was a little child. I didn't want them to think I was bragging. After all, I bought them at a garage sale. (Totally true, but you are getting me side-tracked here.)
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE ALL of my friends even though most of them don't share my passion for design. It's just that it's nice to have friends (like you) who DO share my passion.
I love it that you will notice and enjoy my new rug as much as I do. It just like the one on Miss Mustard Seed's blog. (I got mine at Decor Steals. This isn't a sponsored post, I just love my rug.)
See? I knew you would want to see how pretty it is in my bedroom. I knew you would enjoy the roses too.
You listen when I go on about my trips to Antique Week at Round Top, and about how Caroline fell in love with a zebra, here, how Peggy brought me the most delicious petite fours here, why I was so sad at graduation time, here. You listen when I go on and on, about how I love to sit on my back porch. You too were shocked along with me when I told about the family secret I unearthed from reading old family letters, here. My other friends only listen to those stories when I feed them my homemade brownies
You cheered on my daughter when she got her driver's license. Yes she did make a dangerous turn during the driving test, but since the officer didn't see the car either and yelled some very bad words
Thanks for coming for a visit. I really enjoy our time together, and I love it even more when I hear from you. Seriously I don't like doing all of the talking. I would love to hear from you in the form of a comment, an email, or just a "hey" on the ranch's Facebook page. When I hear from you, it totally makes my day.
Here's a list of the parties that I visit on a regular basis. I might have shared this link at any number of these.
