You Saved me so Jewels for everyone!!!!

Well Girls I think my brother is a happy man!!

All the ooogling and googling and the odes to Ed comments have calmed the savage beast!
His ego has been saved and he now truly believes he is a stud muffin!
It appears that im out of the woods.....
at least for now!!

Some of my relatives loved the blog posts so much they think I should do an Ed Blog....
All Ed... all the time ....
because we all have so much stuff on him! hee hee....
My sweet brother makes himself such an easy target he is just one of those loveable lugs you have to tease!
so the idea is very tempting!!!
I may have to keep it as my black mailing tool though to keep him in line just in case he really does figure out how to do a blog and post those pipi photos of me!

So now the time has come to pick a winner out of all the wonderful ladies who helped get me out of trouble.
I needed a trusted assistant for this job and as usuall the pug is always right there for me.
His tounge was the perfect device for picking a random name out of the box!!

But I did have to tempt him a little so I put his favorite treat cashews in the bowl......
He wanted them so bad but wasnt quite sure what to do, he didnt no if he should eat the paper or not.

finally he couldnt take it anymore and went for it....... along with the cashews came a few pieces of paper stuck to his tounge.....
I managed to pull one out before he swallowed everything......
and this was the lucky winner........(excuse the dog drool and chewed up cashews):P
Cindy from
Cindy has a great blog where she talks about her decorating and how to projects.

But she isnt the only winner today because im going to reward you all with featuring a new jewel of the month for June. So everyone gets jewels tonight!
Im a bit late because of so much going but as they say good things come to those who wait...

You are going to love Heathers home.
Heather from http://www.prettypetals.typepad/ is one of the most creative and talented girls Ive come acrossed in a long time.
She is simply incredible!!
I told her she finds ways of reinventing the wheel!
She brings new life to things we already use
for example.......we all have ribbons,
but Heather will take a ribbon hand dye it add sevral other layers of ribbons and create a work of art!

I bought this blue one from her its scrumptous!!

I love Heathers style and flair she inspires me and im one of her biggest fans!!!!

Heather describes her style in this way.........

"I absolutely love anything vintage and love to decorate my home with an eclectic mix of antiques.

The color blue, chippy paint, and roses are my weaknesses. You will find a lot of blue in my home and I love to mix it with a tiny bit of pink, lots of green and a bit of brown. This color palette is so soothing and warm to me and I often find myself choosing these colors without even thinking about it.

My Mom has always loved antiques and I have defiantly become my Mother's daughter in that respect.

I would go to shows with her and help her set up her booths.

One of my fondest memories was hanging up her linens on the racks that she had for display and admiring all of the pretty lace.

Now that I have children of my own, I love seeking out treasures for our home at antique shops and creating a pretty comfortable home for us without spending a fortune."

Here's the good news, Whoo-Hoo Sandy!! You guessed it! It is the Parisienne set.. I'll be honored to add your name to the
"Tulle Delight" first prize basket, and you're also added to the second prize basket, by simply
commenting~ Good Luck!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and playing!
Big Hugs to you!

Pssst.. anyone else that wants to play is more than WELCOME to join in! XOXO

Such a beautiful place to visit. I always have such fun.
And that sweet piggy pug, what can I say? Well, matter of fact there is nothing I can say, I'm laughing so hard each time I see him. I do not say this in a mean way, either. He is just so adorably funny.
Blessings & Hugs,

Congrats to Heather!

And Pugsie is hysterical. I just love him!

Now I need to mosey over to Heather's site and look at those ribbons. I have a brand new lamp shade that I am going to re-do and it may need something she has.

Hi Sandy...glad we saved you from your brother LOL.
As far as my bedroom goes..I purchased some lovely pink and black pillows on ebay to tie in but I am still not loving the whole effect. I bought about $200 worth of Rachel Ashwell curtains and tried different ones. I actually settled on some no-name sheers.
I had to take a break from my room and move to some other rooms of my house....the latest is our office.
How is your bathroom coming along?
Talk to you soon :)

Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too said...

Forgot to tell you....your jewels of the month are so lovely. I love taking the time to view them. It is relaxing and inspiring....this months was wonderful!

Take care,

I do love your dog. So sweet. Pugs just warm your heart, don't they? Loved the jewel of the month, Heather. She does some wonderful things, doesn't she. Quite a nice calming style, and the best part is she's my darling daughter! Have a wonderful day,
