I've been tagged for 7 Random things about me from Belinda from "What's Cooking in a Southern Kitchen" and Randi from "In my Mother's Name"

Here is how it works. Once tagged, you give 7 random things about yourself that no one knows and then you tag 7 more or less to continue the tag. Have fun and here are 7 things about me!

1. Been designing since I was 11 years old and was inspired by my 5Th grade teacher who told me to keep being creative. She had me enter the fair and I won 1st place for a floral mosaic that I designed at 11 years old.
2. Love shoes and purses and change my purses often. My great grandpa was a shoe designer in Italy and I think I got this from him. LOL!! Can't have too many shoes or purses!
3. I just love to paint in the studio during a thunder storm. It is so cozy!
4. For a late night snack, I love a PB&J with chips!
5. Do not like heights!
6. My sweet Mother went to school in Morgantown, W.V. with Don Knotts from the Andy Griffith show.
7. I was invited to the White House in Washington twice to add my ornaments to the Blue Room Tree.

From here I will tag~~ Amy from Bunny Rose Cottage, Connie from Rose Porch Designs, Vickie from Vickie's Visuals, Lorena from Rose Chic Friends, Melissa from The Cottage Rose, Karen from Second Hand Rose, Bertie from Aunt Mays Cottage~ if you all have not been tagged yet. Have fun.

The photo of the hummingbird and Hibiscus flowers are a painting on a fan box I did from a study and design by Barbara Baatz Hillman. I just love the water droplets on the flowers. This was a fun design to paint and I love the use of the sweet fan box. It slides to one side and perfect to hold a few jewels or special treasures.
