6 May I Take a Moment to Say Thanks?

It's time to give my monthly love to those folks that keep this blog a tickin' from month to month!

I started this blog up in September of 2009.  Just a small town gal looking to use some spare seconds to share my crazy around the home ideas, inspirations and projects.  Wow, it's crazy how things can change in three years and over 1000 posts later!  Blessed doesn't even begin to describe it!

My sponsors keep this blog alive and I am forever grateful that they support my daily posts, projects, blog expenses and time.  Today I am giving them my gratitude and thanks and reflecting on what keeps this blog a tickin' and a tockin'.
