Oh, I thought you wanted to know more about me...

Sweet Maryland Pink and Green tagged me in this cute game... and I loved reading her answers!  She is just a lovely lady, truly gracious in style and the way she treats others.  Thank you for thinking of me! 

Favorite Colors:
Pale yellow and robin’s egg blue… better known as Ivoire and Quietude by Sherwin Williams.

Favorite Brands/Designers:
Lilly Pulitzer, Talbots, and Target for me.  (What dichotomies!!!) 
Brooks Brothers and Lacoste for my husband and sons.

Favorite Restaurant:
Franks Outback at Pawleys Island.  I am always with people 
I love whenever I go there… and the food is absolutely amazing!

Favorite Hobbies:
Needlepoint, entertaining, blogging

Favorite thing about yourself:
Being gracious in most any situation and making people feel comfortable around me.  My father told me that is what makes a lady or gentleman.

What does your room look like (color scheme, theme, etc.):
We have a cherry sleigh bed with ivory duvet and big pillows from Pine Cone Hill.  The walls are painted Quietude (see my favorite colors!) An oriental rug covers the hardwoods.  I must have the windows open for lots of light… fresh flowers are on my dresser.  On Saturday mornings, boys jumping in and snuggling with their mama completes the picture.

I wasn't sure which room you actually meant, so here is my living/great room.  Some have said it has Southern Living style.  Thank you so much!  But I'll let you be the judge.

If you could have dinner with 2 people (dead or alive) who would they be: 
My paternal grandparents.  My grandfather died when I was 4 and I didn’t really know him at all.  My grandmother died when I was 16 and was very “old” and sick for a long time.  I just have so many things I want to share with her about my life… and ask her about hers.

What is your next “big splurge”:

An oriental rug for the foyer… or an IPad (I am a closet techie).

What is your favorite joke, quote, or saying: 
Anything from Clairee Belcher (Steel Magnolias), especially:
“The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.”

“Well, you know what they say: if you don't have anything nice 
to say about anybody, come sit by me!”

“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”

Anything else you would like us to know about you (random fact)!?

I think PRIME NUMBERS are weird (with the exception of 3 and 5, don't ask me why).  For those of you who forgot what they are:  whole numbers whose only factors are 1 and itself.   

The bad thing is that tomorrow I turn 41!  In twenty-four hours, I will be prime...

I tag all of you as I celebrate this yucky number tomorrow.  My birthday wish would be that I could celebrate with all of you!  Have a golden day!

    also, my sweet, do you have my new URL on the blog roll?

  15. 41 may be a prime number but remember, you are FORTY FUN! Hope you had a great b-day Bev!

  16. Oh, yes, the 40s have several primes--41, 43, and 47, but then you hit 48, which is divisible by almost everything, so that kind of makes up for it, right? Ha! Hope you had a good week at Edisto; we may look there next year!

  17. I am accepting the tag!! And I love your answers. May are the same for me! And I love the steel mag quote! My fave!


Thanks for your sweet comments... They make my day just that more Golden!
