I Dig Your Chili!

  One aspect of blogging that I really love is that it gives writers and readers an opportunity to spotlight EACH OTHER!  Like most, my time is limited and I couldn't possibly read or even be exposed to the countless DIY'ers, furniture goddesses, and crafty, smart, funny chicas out there.  But, I'm going to try!

So, in the spirit of "do unto others", I'm going to spend time each week featuring the peeps I treasure!  I've even created a little button!  So, if this is you, please know that 
(wait, did you hear the music?)
and if you want, please display it proudly!

If you've been following me for long, you know that I love Amy from The Salvage Collection.  She writes funny, poignant, real-life stuff.  Did I mention she's hilarious?  Oh yeah, and she creates ah-maz-ing, beautiful, fabulous, unique pieces of furniture, too!  Like this...


and once you finish reading, you'll wish you ALSO had a can of rejuvination and acceptance in your paint cabinet!!
Other than Amy's love of doggies (mine is smelly) I like to think of her as me, only FUNNY and TALENTED!  Go now!

Are you back?  Okay, moving along!

I also really love the 80's.  Call me crazy, old, stuck in the glory days, whatever - 80's music was happy, unencumbered stuff!!
Kim from Too Much Time On My Hands clearly agrees!  Her blog is beautiful and full of crafty ideas, organizing tips, furniture, recipes, you-name-it.  But, I won't lie, sometimes I check in just to read the lyrics or see the video!  This week it was Rick James and Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time" - I'm mean come on, how fun is that?  It was stuck in my head all day!!


As funny ALWAYS wins me over (just ask my husband) I also love to read My Life and Kids by Anna.  Her humor is the kind that lets you know you're not alone in this world - it really hits close to home!  Other times her humor is the kind that makes you almost pee your pants - she puts her husband's head on other bodies - THAT kind of funny!  This is the guy....


Some of my favorite posts have to do with her advice on FAKE housekeeping - I've learned so much!!

My Life and Kids

These girls make my days brighter!  PLEASE do yourself a favor and go check them out (and follow along with me!)
