I've been tagged....


...by Stephanie of Angelic Accents. She's such a sweetie and a lovely friend!

It's a "Getting To Know You" tag and here's how it works....... I need to answer five questions and pass this on to five friends. Steph's questions are:

Where have you traveled? In my career, I did a lot of traveling to the mid-America states and I've visited nearly every state on the East Coast and California. I've also been to Canada a couple of times.

Where would you like to live? I'm very happy living in Michigan except during the winter. Ideally, I think Tennessee would be perfect for weather year around. I don't mind a little cold; It's the snow and ice, I don't like much.

What is your decorating style? I love the Victorian style! The furniture, the window dressings, the wall hangings, the fabrics, the lace, the linens, the clothes, the romance and the gentler times of that era are deep in my very soul. I prefer to tweak it a bit to lighten the colors and lessen the displayed collections. Living in a 160 year old home and researching it's roots, I've found that many styles of that time period appeal to me. I also like the Old World style of the French, English and Italian influences. I really like all styles except "Mid-Century Yuck" and "Modern Simplicity".

How many times have you been married? Three times. The first two were practice.

Favorite color? Depends upon my mood, but I always like Old Rose.

What is your proudest accomplishment? Raising four children.

What would we be absolutely shocked to learn about you? Most people don't know that I sing with a Gospel Quartet, and have for almost 30 years. The shocking part is that I am barely 5 feet tall and sing in a true Bass voice.

OK, I tag . . . . . . .

Ele, Dolly, Lillian, Susan, Judy

You can use the same questions or make up some new ones if you'd rather.

I just realized that Stephanie passed on more than five questions to me.

Hey, Steph.......
