Love Letters Straight From The Heart!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I have been feeling the love this week. Case in point...for those who haven't noticed, I'm a big girl now. I now have a really cool banner AND an official Talking Trash button thanks to my girl Amy! (I smell trademark!)

I guess it's true what they say about "cold hands, warm heart" 'cause it is really cold where Amy is and she definitely has a warm heart. She created my masterpieces (as much as I would like to take credit for them...c'mon...y'all know better) and sent them to me last night. She also took the time to walk me through getting them into the right place. Y'all know I don't like to play favorites, but I gotta tell you...this girl holds a special place in my warm heart. Tell me the truth...doncha just love it and her! I do because she gets me and that isn't always an easy thing to do.

Now it's my turn to try and return the love to her. (This just gets better and better, trust me!) Amy has been selected along with nine others to compete in an online competition called "So You Think You Can Decorate"! I KNOW!!! 10 designers...10 challenges...10 much fun is this? Each week the one with the lowest vote will be eliminated until just one is left standing. Now y'all...we just have to make sure my girl is it! (Have you seen her bedroom redo...2die4!) The voting will start February 28 and believe me when I say I will be riding y'all like little ponies to make sure you are voting each and every time! I may not can do much of anything else, but I promise you up and down...I can nag (get it...nag?)! Mark it on your calendars and start exercising those pointer fingers!
I have to warn y'all...I've got several thank you posts coming up. I'm having one of the best weeks ever and I can't wait to share, but just a little at a time. I wouldn't want y'all to get the idea I'm some kind of pampered pooch!

I will give you a little hint...think BMH, EV, FL and KUWTR...that's all I'm saying!

On a quieter note, but still with love, I would also like for y'all to go over to Witt's blog (there's a button on my sidebar). This little guy will be having heart surgery in the morning and the family sure could use some lifting up and prayers. You've heard me talk about him and his whole family before...please join me in praying for them tonight, tomorrow and as long as they need us. Thank you so much.

Love your new blog look! Regarding the you mean a beeskep type design out of chicken wire? Good idea! You could do it pretty easy....just cut a piece of chicken wire and squish the top in, and well, you know, just make it whatever you want it to look like! I think the shipping would be more than it's worth!(I'll try to get one done today and post it--stay tuned!) Thanks for all your encouragement Ms. Trash!

I tried to make it over before my giveaway ended to say hello, but ran out of time. Several peeps mentioned they found me via your site, and I wanted to thank you.
Your blog is looking mighty spiffy with it's new ruffles and bows! I also had the best laugh of the day when I saw you lounging in all your glory in the tub! You're my kind of gal. I look forward to following you.

Change is...variable. HA. Looks fab. it's like taking off your bathing suit and taking a shower after a day at the pool...or like getting hair cut or a make-over...or like eating cheese, or like drinking...anything! ox
