Nov 20th Etsyblogger Blog Carnival

Most countries around the world have a day set aside to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Here in the US, it's Thanksgiving. What do you celebrate wherever you live and how do you celebrate?

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! The entire family gets together either at my place or my brothers and we all cook, play cards and just laugh about old times! My sister is stationed in Germany and one of my brother's is in Maryland so it is definitely a treat when all of us can come together! Now we all have kids and I am the grandma so our kids enjoy laughing at all of our old stories too!

Happy Holidays!

The Eyes are the mirror of the soul

I love the eyes! They are generally the first thing (along with the smile) that draws me to a person. They say the eyes are the mirror of the soul. Look at these eyes and tell me what these eyes say to you! Here are my thoughts:

#1 - Their eyes look a little tired but seem focused and persistent
#2 - hmm..I see a little worry and anxiety but strength.
#3 - Deep, passionate, soft yet intense

Featured Etsyblogger - Lazytcrochet

LazyTCrochet is one of the coolest and most hip Etsy Artist around!I love her work! Funky and Fun! Take a look!

How Fights Get Started

One year I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery lot as a Christmas gift.

The next year, I didn't buy her a gift. When she asked me why, I replied,

"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"

And that's how the fight started.


My wife walked into the den & asked "What's on the TV?"

I replied "Dust"
And that's how the fight started.


My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.

She was not happy with what she saw and said, 'I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.
I really need you to pay me a compliment.

I replied, 'Your eyesight's very near perfect.'
And that's how the fight started.


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds.

I bought her a scale.

And that's how the fight started.


I asked my wife, 'Where do you want to go for our anniversary?'

It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation.

'Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!' she said..

So I suggested, 'How about the kitchen?'
And that's how the fight started.


My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.

I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to make love?'

'No,' she answered.

I then said, 'Is that your final answer?'

She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying 'Yes.'

So I said, 'Then I'd like to phone a friend.'
And that's how the fight started.


I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95.

Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95.

I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream.

And that's how the fight started.


I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

'I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.'

He said, 'Aren't you worried about the mad cow?'

'Nah, she can order for herself.'

Etsyblogger Blog Carnival - Birthday Memory

1) Tell about your favorite birthday memory, gift or wish...

Birthdays for me are all about spending time with those I love and who have impacted my life. I don’t need a bunch of gifts or even a huge party. It is the time of sharing and laughing that I love most!

One of my more encouraging celebrations was at a restaurant with a ton of my friends. We had buffet lunch, laughed and talked, all of my friends (some tearfully) shared about me. I in turn shared with each person the impact they had on my life. It is because of the culmination of friendships that I am the woman that I am today! Those kind of birthday memories and gifts are simply priceless and irreplaceable!

Quote: Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends.

Etsyblogger Blog Carnival - Fairy Tale

What is your favorite fairy tale? Any parallels to real life?

You know I really did not have an absolute favorite fairy tale but I love Cinderella's story. I loved that she was a young lady of noble character, a good spirit and a humble heart in spite of being

continually abused and mistreated by her Step mother and step sisters! She always kept her spirits up and I don't recall EVER hearing her complain about her circumstances. I always wondered where her slack father was though! Looks like Step mom ran the show and HIM! I loved that she got to go to the ball after all wearing a beautiful dress, gorgeous glass slippers and got to ride in that lovely carriage. I wanted those slippers by the way! LOL! In the end, good won over the mean spirited and cruel and she got her charming Prince. You can not ask for much more than that.

There are a number of parallel to real life one could make.
  • Good in the long run prevails.
  • Treat people like you want to be treated - Cinderella did
  • Never give up! Good things come to those who persevere
  • Never give up on your dreams no matter what the naysayers do or say!
  • Love in spite of!
  • See the good in all circumstances and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel
  • Sing and dance a lot
  • It is not where you start but where you finish and I would say Cinderella finished strong!!
