A post for Harriet ~

My blogging buddy, Harriet, was a sweetie this week and gave me an award on her blog.  Thanks so much!  Here are the *rules*:

1. Thank and link the person who gave you the award
2. Display the award on your blog
3. Tell 6 lies and one truth about yourself or vice versa
4. Nominate 7 others and leave a message letting them know.

Here are my little decide what is fact or fiction!
1. I lettered in choir in high school.
2. I have a degree in Western Herbalism.
3. I once rode over 700 miles in one day on a motorcycle.
4. I love to exercise.
5. I was 15 years old when I saw the ocean for the first time.
6. I sleep with a stuffed animal I've had since I was 7.
7. I have a degree in Human Nutrition: Dietetics.

Now, I don't like to play by the rules; therefore, I'm not going to give this award out to people.  I think all of my blogging buddies are fabulous, creative and wonderful women!  So consider this given to you!  Post it on your blog and let me know so I can guess if you're giving out a slew of lies or telling little innocent truths.

Another thing Harriet does is plays along with the What's on Your Work Desk Wednesdays.  I thought I might play along today since I actually got to play last night.  Hubby got a new game for his PlayStation, so I got free stamping time!!  WooHoo!!
I actually don't know how I got anything done since it's such a mess!  Harriet, those flowers are for you!  I tried to get a better picture but was unsuccessful.  Here are a couple more from the front garden - hope they cheer up your day :o)
This iris is called Black Beauty.  The picture isn't the best, but they bloom for such a short time that I wasn't able to get anything better. 
Ok, I'm off to photograph the card I made last night for the current Embellish challenge.  I'll be back later to post it!  Have a super hump day!  :o) lyss

I can almost spell that rose - how beautiful. And welcome to WOYWW - I see your neatly arranged flowers..says a lot about you - I don't think yourdesk is untidy either, I mean - have you been to my place yet!!!

Rebecca said...

Now I want to know which degree you really have....or do you have both!?!? LOL!

Your flowers are gorgeous, and I love all the buttons lined up above your desk. That's awesome.

Love that rose I can almost smell it! Looks like Just Joey to me...but probably isn't! If it;s the same one on your desk then it probably isn't, fabby working space too

Sunshine Girl said...

What a lovely cluttered desk and I think your row of flower jars looks fab!

Julie E said...

Gees, are there any lies in there LOL??? Plus your desk looks pretty neat, I usually end up with 2 piles of paper scraps that sit forever. I do put my scissors away at the very least, but that is just because I don't want the boys to get in trouble!
