I am having a "GIVEAWAY" ..............This week in history.........pay really close attention........

My little Snuggle Bug (LOLOLOL) and I will be married 34 years on Saturday.
9/25/1976
(look at his long skinny fingers!)

This was my Grandpa and Grandma Wray...(I don't remember them {I hope this was long before my time} but that must be where my gardening, flower loving genes came from! At least I didn't get their nose!)
I wonder how long they were married?
I wonder if my marriage will last that long?
Maybe if I can stay out of the fabric stores and stay out of "time out" it will last a long time!!!

I threw this one in for fun!
Grandma Goldie, Mama, Me and Robin. Not sure what was up with Robin's shoes, I do not remember them!! UGLY!!
Look at my really long and skinny fingers!

This is the cute little fellow that I married!
Always an animal lover!




Now look again at those long skinny fingers and those long but very skinny legs!!
How about those T-straps???
Love me some T-straps to this day!!
I would wear them every day if they made my legs look like that again!

I always get emotional during the week before my wedding anniversary.
Way back in 1976, on the week before my wedding day, I would walk from my house to Danny's every morning to help him and his family make molasses. Of course I just walked out there to be with him and to eat his Mother's GREAT country cooking!!!
The weather was beautiful that week, there was a nice chill in the air and it was really misty each morning. As I walked through the hayfield to his house, I was thinking that
"I Was The Happiest Girl in The Whole USA!!!"


As I have been traveling to work this week, I have noticed that the early mornings have been sorta misty just as they were 34 years ago. Almost brings tears to my eyes when that happy feeling comes back to me. I just knew way back that it would be the most awesome thing in the world to be "Mrs. Danny Moran!!!!!!!!!!!

It is pretty awesome.....most of the time!!!!!
Of course I was only 14 at the time, what did I know??


Now.........
like I said.....PAY ATTENTION......
I have never done a give away on here and it is LONG over due.
I am so sorry for being such a slacker in that department too.
I hope that somehow I could make it up to you though.
In honor of my anniversary....(well can you think of a better reason??) I will host a giveaway!!


I have never been a fan of those giveaways that give you all those rules about if you do this and do that then you will be entered....yada yada yada........HOWEVER.....I have something in the works and I regret that I have no choice but to ask you to do a little legwork here.
I can't tell you as of yet what that is all about but ALL you have to do to win is become a follower and leave me a comment telling me how much you would like to be entered in this drawing!
See Easy Peasy, right???
A drawing for what, you are asking??
You will be entered in the drawing for a table runner just like the one above!
(only it will be completely finished, lol)
A Moda French General ~ Lumiere de Noel Table Runner hand made and quilted by me.

My hubby and I are celebrating 31 years on Sept. 26. Reading this post brings back lots of my own wedding memories. I wish you lots of love and joy on your special day.

Hey Becky! I love following your blog ... and commenting on your posts! I don't usually enter giveaways but, I would really like to enter yours. I have admired your quilting from your photos. It would be such a treat to actually run my fingers over the fabric and those really cool stitches you do.

I was married in 1976 too ... on June 18th. We were married almost 20 years. It only lacked 3 weeks being 20. I'm glad you and Danny have made it many more years than Mike and I did. I was 17 when we were married. :D

I will be keeping a little bit closer tabs on my 14 year old:))) What were our mother's thinking, huh?? I was 15 when I met Rob and married him at 19 all those years ago. Your quilting is beautiful girlfriend!

Not sure what you were thinking about those shoes! But somewhere along the line I developed a love for shoes:)
Now the picture of Daddy and his dogs, was he pulling them in the wagon, or was he getting ready to hook them up and have them pull him? :)

That was great timing! I would have eventually become a follower anyway (it takes me a bit of time to get to all of my followers blogs), and that runner sure would look pretty with my new furniture! I hate, yes hate the runner I have on my table right now. Can you say "Wal-Mart special"?

I love that photo of your grandparents. And may I wish you a happy anniversary, just a day early. Mr. Granny and I recently celebrated our 48th.

Of course, I would love to enter this giveaway. BTW... good luck with those shingles. I had them years ago while pregnant. Not the most fun thing I've ever done :) -Tammy
