A Rose Room Party!!

Rachel over at The Rose Room is having a "nice to meet you" party in honor of her 100th post! Well, count me in, my little chickadees!! Plus fabulous prizes???? Count me in again! All she is asking is that we share where we do our blogging. Hah....... More like where I spend my LIFE. So here goes.........

This is my office computer room taken from several angles. I have to have beautiful "eye candy" wherever I am - bedroom, kitchen, living room, family room, office and even other words, everywhere in my house. :-)

I have a window seat. (Oh, btw, that dark wood chair is just in there temporarily from hubby's office so we could make room for our daughter and her hubby who are coming for the weekend. It's not usually in there.) My desk is a white cottage shabby chic style one. There is lace on the window, lots of white wood in there and of course roses all over the walls. I do my ebay-ing there, my finances, my blogging, photo shoots for ebay and just about everything.

NOW for the other things Rachel wants us to do - answer a few questions about ourselves.

1. Relationship: Married to Jack for 47 years in June of this year.

2. Children: a daughter and a son and 3 gorgeous grandsons and 1 gorgeous granddaughter.

3. Pets: none. We had a dog who died and I won't get anymore until Jack can have it put down when it needs to be done. He could never do it and I won't do it again so that settles that. He's soooo soft hearted when it comes to his pets.

4. Age: Do I have tooooooo?!?! Okay, 39 and stubbornly holding to that!

5. Star sign: Virgo

6. Favorite food: Pasta or Fish - cooked in a restaurant since I have the lingering smell.

7. Favorite drink: Pepsi or Coke

8. House decor style: Romantic, bit shabby, comfy, frou-frou and a lot "Me" thrown in.

9. Collections: Oooooh, there isn't enough room to list them all, but mostly anything with roses on it and of course, pitchers.

10. How did I get into blogging: Jumped right in and have been loving it ever since! Just decided one day to share my life online. Since I'm addicted to computers - we have 5 - and do not travel anywhere without our 2 laptops, it's easy to keep in touch. All of our kids and grandkids have computers - at least 2 in each family so we're a techie family for sure.

So now just to to Rachels and join in, my sweet little chickadees!!

  4. I don't think it is possible to have Coke or Pepsi as a favorite drink, it must be one or the other, at least that is the way it is here. My choice would be Coke, but I am on the wagon, no caffeine, no watered down week stuff for me.
    It has been nice getting to know you. Hop over and check out my computer station. No pictures behind my desk please!

  5. Hi Connie, your office/blog space is wonderful. I love the white and it is so you with the pretties all around. Congrats on 47 years. Special accomplishment!!
