Melissa at Heart and Home........An Award For Me?

I am jumping up and down and my husband came in to the office to see what
was going on. Every week he buys me $5.00 worth of cash scratch off lottery
tickets and he thought I had won some big money. I told him I had my very first
blog from one of my blog freinds. Thank you Melissa you are so kind.

Here are the five things I have always wanted to do:
1. Have a big wedding; we eloped in 1969.
2. Spend more time with my girls, and grandkids.
3. Make my mother well again.
4. Have peace in this world and know that I contributed to it.
5. Wish that there where no more homeless people or sex affenders against children.

Now, I pass this award to all you Blog friends who are new and don't have
an award yet! And you know who you are. And to Melissa please check her site out; she has an amazing

Hi Blossom,

Thanks for dropping by my place. I have to tell you that it wasn't just a coincidence that you left a message there, we have one of those 'cosmic' connections (for lack of a better word).

I worked with brides most of my working life. I started out in a bridal shop, when I was in high school. It was owned by three Italian women, none of them having a daughter, so they passed on more information to me than I could ever have gotten anywhere else.
I too did bridal flowers, but only in silk and dried. I owned my own boutique, at one time, and the bridal business almost carried the store. Many of the girls came to me because I was able to make them bridal veils for such a good price, as you may know, they can cost almost as much as the dress these days. My last job, was as a Bridal Consultant, in a department store.

I think we'll have a lot to share with each other. Now I'll go back and read more of your blog, I just couldn't wait to leave you a message first.

YEA! Congrats on the award!! It's so cool to get one, huh?!?! I love it!

Thanks for asking about my foot, it's doing so much better than I expected, I'm such a little baby when it comes to any kind of pain! LOL!

I'm afraid a cruise isn't something I look forward too. Although my husband would love to go. He worked on an Italian Cruise ship in his late teens and went on one to Alaska with our youngest son. I get motion sickness, and would be afraid to take the chance. Hawaii is my favorite place to vacation, :) flying doesn't seem to bother me, so I'll stick to that.

Happy that you and I have met. :)

LOL! I know, I know, but that's how my poor little o'l brain works!

How many grandkids do you have again? I'm a little jealous, I want some grandkids too!!!
