Random facts about ME

Amy over at The Idea Room is running a fun, get to know me a little better post. I love reading these, it's comforting to know that some of our weird little quirks aren't so weird after all!
*I am the oldest child of 6 kids, 3 girls and then 3 boys, we were the Brady Bunch, but we all have the same 2 parents.
*I hate worms, snakes, mice, lizards, etc. HATE THEM!
*I was captain of our High School Drill Team, kick line. I LOVED it!
*I prefer, when working on projects, to be the boss, I am a terrible delegator, and generally end up doing everything myself, not that I dont think others will do it right, it's more that I hate to bother people.
*My biggest regret in life is that I didnt actively try to have more then 2 children, I kept thinking it would happen again, and time goes on, and well, it didnt.
*I love to grow tomatoes, but hate to eat them.
*I like to cook, hate to clean
*I am a huge procrastinator, and have been all of my life.
*I am a big worrier, I even worry about what worrying will do to my health
*I love to read, and have had times when i wont allow myself to read, just so i will get things done.
*Saying NO is hard for me, but as I age, I am getting better at it
*At least one of our Tv's is always on, although it is rarely watched
*And lastly I love seeing all the awesome craft and decorating projects in Blogville, but I get overwhelmed with all the ideas, and rarely do any of them, hope that changes in 2011.
Thanks all, Happy New Year to each of you!! Sue
PS Sorry there are no pictures, Blogger and I are not on speaking terms!

Heeeelllllloooo, is anyone still out there??

It has been awhile, ok, a really long while! I have been around, leaving comments and stalking all of your interesting blogs. Just havent taken the time to write a blog post of my own. Wow are you girls clever!! I learned so so much, with all of your Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas crafts, recipes, and decorating ideas! I am so impressed, and so confused, do you girls ever sleep?? I just can not find the time to do all or even half of what you all manage to do, and I dont even have any little ones running around like so many of you have. My hat is off to all of you!
My friend and coworker were out and about on appointments the other day, when we drove past this adorable shop...Interiors Embellished,

isnt the building cute??

Well of course we had to turn around and stop in, I mean who wouldnt, right??
This fantastic shop is located in a little country town called Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Lawrenceburg is a riverboat gambling town, very close to my home town of Bright, Indiana. The casino, Hollywood Casino, brings in ALOT of money, and because of this, many grants are available for new business owners to buy or lease this beautiful old buildings and really make them great!
The shop owner is an eccentric woman who definitely has the "eye" for decorating and staging homes. She is just a sweetheart, who actually keeps her money tucked in her bra, gotta love that! Here are some pics of the inside of her amazing shop!

It took a shop as cool as I think this one is, to get me to finally write a new post, lol!

And still more pics...

So, what do you think?? Do you agree that this is one great shop?? If you are in the Lawrenceburg, Indiana area, just a hope skip and swim from Cincinnati, stop in, you wont be sorry!
I promise it won't be 3 months til I post again...I hope. Happy New YEAR All!
Thanks so much for stopping by, Sue
