A Couple of Things....

First.....

My real life friend Sarah is doing a giveaway on her blog! Check it out, she has some super cute stuff. The awesome thing about her giveaway is you get to choose the perfect gift for you from a list of items and have it monogrammed! How cool is that?? So head over to her blog and enter her giveaway!!

Second.....

I was tagged from another wonderful friend Jenny.Lee. Thank you Jenny, this made my day!

Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I am giving this award to:

Just Another Day in Paradise
French Kiss

And I award everyone else, because really I have made so many wonderful friends through the blogging world! What a great blogging world it is ;)

Third........

I was looking back at our pictures from Ireland and came to the conclusion that I must have a thing for doors. What do you think?





No wonder Jon kept asking me why I was taking another picture of a door. I have 20 pictures of just doors!! Oh well I just love them and the fact that they are painted so bright and colorful in Dublin. I had to take pictures of them!

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday! Thank goodness the weekend is finally here!

I love door pictures! I have a set of five Belgian doors framed on our wall right now :)

I take door pictures everywhere we go! I love yours - those will make great artwork.

The door pictures are great! You could make a collage just like you have and frame it.

Do you know the story behind the colored doors of Dublin? When Queen Victoria died, all British subjects were asked to paint their doors black as a sign of mourning. So, the Irish gave the bird, and painted their doors bright colors. They've doing it ever since.

I love all those doors as well! So colorful and pretty!

SKELLER said...

y'know, all those doors would look neat as a collage, framed & hung. they're beautiful and colorful and fun and, of course, filled with your fond memories of your Ireland trip!
