5 Fact FridaY...around and around

Oh is Friday once again.  
It seems like it is the only time i have been posting lately is on Fridays.
Life has been a little hectic around here...but things will slow down soon...i hope!

My favorite instructor, dear Kim Klassen encouraged us to seek out shapes...
circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, converging lines... to look around and find these shapes in our everyday. 
 I chose to look for circles this week... love their soft, smooth curved lines.  
And I thought it would be fun to turn this assignment into 5 Facts about myself.  

This is a way to get to know each other alittle better...
sharing a part of ourselves...How awesome is that?

Fact 1... I love "Ma and Pa" neighbor stores.  

You know the kind, where everyone knows your name and really cares about how your day is going.  
Grunwalds Jewelers was that kind of store...Unfortunately they retired...but not before I got my new wedding ring to celebrate 30 years of married bliss.

Fact 2...I love pearls.
classic and traditional....they go with just about everything.

Fact 3...I love fences.
the older...the better

Fact 4...I love David Austin roses
I just found a nearby nursery that specializes in these beauties.  They gave me their list of new roses that will come in next spring.  They will tag them and grow them for me until it is time to plant them in my new garden beds.   sigh....

Fact 5...I love benches.
I can just get lost in thought sitting out there...and maybe even sneak in a little shut eye.

Well...there you have it....5 little facts about me.  
I can not wait to learn alittle bit more about you too!  
Just click on the banner above and it will take you on over to this fun linky party...
see you there!  Today is the last party...but i am having so much fun that i am going to continue as a weekly column.
