Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

It's the little things that really count....surprises that you don't know what I mean. Ginger, who has an AMAZINGLY beautiful blog over at cottageonrosewood, put a really big smile on my face and just made me...well....HAPPY! She honored me with the Happy Award.

Ginger and I have a lot in common....we are both newbies in blog land, she loves her Daddy (who is super talented), ironstone is a passion for both of us, the list goes on... But, she is one of the amazing ladies who I have "met" since blogging who seems to have it all together and manages to raise 4 children along the way. Thank you to Ginger for being so sweet. So with out further ado, 10 things that make me HAPPY:

My amazing husband....who is also my very best friend.

My three amigos.

Living at Creeky Hollow Farm.


My Mama's cooking.....nobody does it like MAMA!!!!

Playing poker....and of course, winning!

Being near water...creeks, rivers and oceans all make me smile...
and mean another thing that makes me

Junking...searching for more ironstone :)

And lastly, blogs. I have really enjoyed spending time exploring blog land.
There are so many lovely people and unique places to look for ideas, inspiration, and
all of life's little moments. I am honored to be a part of it all and really honored
to be a recipient of the Happy Award. Thanks again Ginger. Be sure to check
out her blog over at

Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely Monday.



  1. You're welcome and very deserving. You have a beautiful blog.

  2. I think it's great that your mom cooks with the kids. Great memories are being made there for sure.
    I also love ironstone, but have had a heck of a time finding any around here in the thrifts. I need to broaden my search.
    Our boys love fishing, dad not so much, but he takes them anyway. One more thing I love about him. Thanks for sharing and for letting us 'know' you better.

  3. I really enjoyed reading your happy list. Your family is beautiful!

    I like the rustic aged patina comment you left about my floor. That really made me feel better:)

  4. Congrats on winning this great award and your happy list is precious!

  5. It was nice getting to know you better & what makes you happy. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.
