You never get too old to learn something new!!!
A year ago, I didn't even know what a
was and I certainly didn't have one,
didn't even know how to pronounce it.
And, then -
my DIL introduced me to
and you know the rest of the story.
Be sure to check out her blog,
"Decorating the Ville"
and see what she's doing in
her new house to make it a beautiful home.
So, I was very excited when

"A Stroll Thru Life"
was having a

Love my bluebirds.
