The Winner Issssssssss !!!!!!!!

Hello my good ladies. Its Nov.8, and time to tell you who the winner is.I'm so happy to say, it is, Laura Ingalls Gunn!!! The name she chose for my Angel is, A Heavenly Note. Isn't it a beautiful name? But all the names were beautiful, so I'm saving everyone. AND whenever I make a new Angel,I will pick a name from this list,with your permission of course. I want to thank all the wonderful ladies and Gent, for partisapating in the drawing.It was the most fun and I'm looking forward in doing this again.

Now to tell you about the most fab. award I recieved from sherry at Its called, Awarded to a Lovely Lady. It was created by Joanne at My Little Cottage. Isn't it a very pretty award? Thank you Sherry. You are a most fav lady yourself.I had the pleasure of talking to Sherry on the phone.We could have talked all day,thats how much we have in common.What fun we would have if we lived near each other.Knowing me,I would have gotton us into something.Her Hubby Wes is also just the koolest guy.I have recieved a teacup, I will be posting it soon for I want to show it up right ,nice ,and pretty.Thank youuuuu !!!

The rules are that you are to choose people you blog with the most. So I'm not going to pass this award ,But any of the ladies that I blog with ,Please pick this award up. I love blogging with you are my lifeline, and I appreciate each and everyone.Now I've been tagged by, La Donna Weller: This is a most talented lady as most of you already know.

The rules are to name 6 boring and quirky facts about myself. That will be easy for I bore my own self and I also have alot of quirks. I'm not going to pass this either,but if you would like to play .Then by all means take this tag.I love to play,but I know alot of you are busy and this is the holiday season.The days are shorter.There just don't seem enough hours in a day.

Here are my quirks:

1.I don't like change in anything.I won't change my hairdo,its been this way since I was a little girl.I listen to the same music and dance the same way,a bit slower of course.

2.I only eat good old southern country food or local fair.

3.I still belive children should mind you ,or else.No free range children for me.Just ask Alexia my daughter.

4. I like staying home .I like quiet most of the time.

5.I still have and wear old clothes, I've had for ever.

6.My hubby wants to buy me a brand new truck,but I can't give up my old one that I had since 1995. I even ride it though town with peacock poo on the hood.In fact I did that yesterday. My friend Bunny from bowling just shook her head. WHAt !!!I said.
Hey its paid for and my old truck may not be a beauty anymore, but it will run when your breaks down. Its a toyota !!!
Thanks you all again Hugs and kisses all around, Marie Antionette


  1. Hi Marie Antoinette! Congrats to the lucky winner! Congrats on your well deserved award. Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Marie!
    What a fabulous post! It's perfect!!

    I'm so glad you received your teacup. And glad you like it! And you certainly deserve the lovey lady award. I had so much fun talking with you and YES we would probably get into something!

    Great facts about you and I have a Toyota too!! It's a 99 Camry and I LOVE it! It runs so great and is so dependable and I'll drive it til it falls apart.

    Big hugs, Sherry

  3. Hey girl, They did a TV series on Dr.Kildare??? Anyway I enjoyed reading your facts and I just love how you wrote 'no free range kids for me'...LOL! I AGREE!


  4. Great post!
    Hope you are having a great weekend.
    Cheers, Sharon

  5. Hi Marie!
    Oh I'm so excited! I love most colors, I'm not a big fan of orange except in the fall. I guess I like pale pinks & greens alot and I like white & cream too! Oh I can hardly wait... I feel like a little kid! What ever you decide will be gorgeous!!
    Hugs, Sherry

  6. I'll say it will run forever. I had a Toyota Celica for 23 years... it was still running fine... but, it did get so I could see the highway flying by under the gas and break pedals.....felt like Fred Flintstone....

    I sold it for $350 .... had close to 200,000 miles on it.

    Now we have a Toyota Rav 4 ....

  7. er... that shud be "brake"

  23. To Ms. Marie Antionette

    You are heartily welcome to my blogspace. I liked the way you responded through the comment. and one thing about the writer : the writer, as I believe, is a person who knows the technique to channelize his/her experiences through the word. That's all. And every one has experiences to tell.

    I will be visiting your blogs.
