An Award and Saturday Projects

First of all,
Thank-you Tricia
at
For tagging me with this award.
But,
in my case,
it may be
Be Careful What You Ask For
So here goes,
Seven Random Things
That Many of You Don't Know About Me
The YOU being Blog Friends.
Unfortunately, for my family and friends,
this will just be a rehash
of
mishaps, misfortune,
and
the occasional
embarrassment.
Ready?
1. When I was a teenager, I worked as a Carney.
That would be carnival, food booth, french fries, mushrooms,
smelly Carney person. 
My Dad thought it would be a good experience.
My mother had a ceremonial burning of my clothes at the end of summer.
My younger sister was never allowed to "experience" that.
2.  Moving right up through the years, I had a short career
as a demolition derby driver.
OK, Two demos, but I still have this burning desire to do it again!
3. I once, at a very desperate point in my life,
bought a house,
in a bar,
over a beer,
from a guy that was going to prison,
for less than most of you have paid for a used car,
then lived in it for eight years.
4. I have been stung by a jellyfish,
a stingray,
and am somewhat afraid to go back in the ocean
for fear a shark attack is next.
5. Bats and hummingbirds scare the crap out of me.
6. On my 49th birthday, my daughter and I hiked
to the Citadel in Haiti,
still one of the most amazing places
I have ever visited.
7.  My dream job would be to work for a high end florist
doing expensive weddings
and big huge
floral displays....
or work on floats for the
Tournament of Roses Parade.

Now to tag,
I am having so much fun reading these,
I hate to pick just ten people.
Please feel free to take this
and post your own
Seven.
Just let me know in a comment,
so that I don't miss it.
What are your Seven?
Finished this yesterday.
I thought of listing it on my long abused and forgotten
selling blog.


But it really looks nice here on the floor in my bedroom.
But,
if anyone wants it,
I could be convinced to part with it.


Another finish,
Bound for the attic
to season
until the
Fall Open House.


So much for hanging clothes out,
had to try some of these.


Mittens for bowl fillers
that have been sitting on my paint counter since
...well a really long time.


And
we have a problem.
I ran out of fabric!!!


on both of these.
That shop will not be open again until Thursday.
I sure hope that they have more of those colors!

Off to church this morning,
my daughter and I have the baby nursery.

Still taking the prednisone,
Still crazy
for
twelve
more
days!

O I forgot to ask....do you make rugs? Are those rugs you ran out of material for? I need a new one for my kitchen and that is the kind I like...K

Love you seven things. Come visit me sometime after Christmas and I will take you to decorate a Rose Float. They mainly do the week after Christmas.
Love your finishes. Have fun with those babies at church.

Congratulations on the award! Somehow, I think your seven are going to be very hard to top...You have to be one of the most fascinating people in ordinary (albeit bumpy at the present time)skin. ;o) Love your little Americana sheep. I agree - it looks perfect in the corner with the other Americana.....Happy Sunday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Wow! What a great seven!! Looks like you'll get to work on a Rose Float is you take Teresa up on her wonderful offer!
I loved that I learn a little more about you.

Have a wonderful Sunday friend,
