About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

October Giveaway, Thursday, October 2, 2014

The Winner is TEE!
Please email me your shipping address to:

October...the BEST Month of the Year...GREAT Things have HAPPENED in October...ESPECIALLY on the 30th!  =)

Today will be 89 degrees and then tonight, a cold front will come through the state and Saturday, the temps will STRUGGLE to get into the 50s!  LOL...Welcome to Middle Tennessee!  I live in the county that used to be the largest producer of Dark Fired Tobacco in the WORLD!  I detest smoking, so I should not brag on that, but it is part of our heritage...we've learned better...NOW, most farmers grow row crops in a rotation of winter wheat, soybeans and then corn...

I live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country...we have gently rolling hills.  If you go to West Tennessee, the land is FLAT and was a large producer of cotton back in the day.  When you go to the East, you will witness the hills BECOMING bigger...we have the Cumberland Mountains and then further East, the SMOKEY Mountains...We have the best of all worlds ALL contained on state! 

I've gotten to travel to many places and there REALLY is NO PLACE like HOME!  I HOPE that you are blooming WHERE you have been planted, because living in peace is a gift!

In honor of this New Month and well, because I REALLY REALLY REALLY need more followers, I am having a giveaway!  If you share my blog, I will enter your name in a drawing to possibly win this Original Halloween Design...It is painted on an old pie pan.  

You can follow my blog through Google...you need to answer a few questions to join google, or you can follow me through emails...the sign up is on the right side of my blog.  I will NOT send you emails, you will ONLY get a notification when I make a new post and it is sent automatically~~I do NOT see the email addresses.

When you comment (you have to be a follower to comment, I think...I'm really not sure...I'm still NEW to this stuff, too!) there are several ways to share my blog, so please help me by SHARING!  I need followers!  sniff sniff...ok....just thought I would throw in the pity party...BWAH!  There are also links on the right to share through Facebook and Twitter...Let me KNOW that you shared, so I can enter you in the drawing!

I am so grateful for the number of visits I am getting to my blog and for the kind remarks I have heard...I am still working on finding my VOICE, but I think I have things to offer that others will find interesting...maybe not to some, but maybe to OTHERS...

So, share and beg your friends to show pity on this ole gal and on October 16, I will draw a name and will announce it on the next day and will get it in the mail...it is open to ALL people no matter where you live as long as you can get mail! 

Thank you for your kindness to me and I HOPE that I somehow can inspire you in return...Blessings to YOU...~charlotte♥
