What am I up to now? this is special, Just for you......

 I came to realize my One year blogging anniversary came and went. 
I thought....
I must do something special.
So I decided, I would.....
But you the winner of this,  won't know what it is, until you receive it.
I can't say what the monetary worth of this will be, I don't think that really matters,
I can only tell you it will be special from me, from the heart.
I will decided the winner  through
This is only open for  my current  followers, because it is so personal, I feel I know each and everyone one of you, and I can do something special just for YOU!
I have come to know you..
Cherish you,
think of you,
care about you.

OK so now what do you need to do?

I would love to know what in the past year has been your favorite post, and WHY?
Even if you have only been a friend for a short time, you can pick from that time on...
Take your time if you have to, and come back, I will have this post on my side bar after today.

I can't wait to read these.  It will also give me insight as to what you enjoy on my blog.
As you can see, I am trying to keep things fresh and fun around here. But I need your help too.
And don't go telling me you love em all! Because I have had some clunkers, or two, or that ain't flying!
In the meantime, Lucy sits and waits for the partay!
Last day to get in on the European sign giveaway

What exactly is a pulpit? Because that is the very first post I ever read of yours. It pulled me in. It was simple and to the point, but had your personality all over it. I even thought about it yesterday in church. Oops daydreaming, must not have been a very good sermon. No, I remember it was about shining our light to others. You sure have friend.

Oh my gosh, you made me crack up! Ok, being spontaneous the one that pops into my head would most definitely be your one about kids and alcohol. I thought the photo's you put of of the university with all the mayhem that had gone on spoke volumes. And having 3 boys, one of whom is turning 21 in SIX days, it was a very relevant subject for me. My oldest has no interest in drinking at all but it terrifies me that he's on the freeways coming home from work at midnight...ugghhh!!! Can't they just stay little forever?

You had me at hello. :o)

I always enjoy your holiday decor posts. I like the way you change things up, especially in your kitchen.

The one post that jumps out at me is the first What I Wore Wednesday post your wrote just recently. I liked it because it captured your love of having fun.

Here's to an exciting, fun-filled Year Number 2! CHEERS! La

My fave is your guest bedroom lampshade makeover(whoa, surprise!LOL). It is followed closely by your Halloween posts this year...but now that I think of it, how am I supposed to pick? I guess that lamp is just you, whenever I think about me and you...lampshades brought us together, so this kind of epitomizes it. Congrats on your bloggiversary and thank you for never giving up(uh..not that you've ever wanted too!LOL). Hugs to you my friend!

Oh Debb you put all of us in a trouble......... you have such nice posts that I think no one can point out exactly one... Like I love your first posts very much in which you normally give a topic to discuss and at the time not too many people were the followers but I really enjoyed them very very much... I always love your posts about anything new in your Dinning room... you know yours is one of my favourite:)...
Your transformation of boys room... that was also a nice one... I think this list will goes on and on:)... Happy blogging Anniversary.. Wish you all the best for U , UR Family and your interesting blog...

I'm a relatively new follower(having just found you this year) and have enjoyed so many of your posts, old and new. I thought I should pick a new post from this year, since that's when I found your blog, so I'd have to say it's your rooster kitchen stools. I loved the fun you had with the semi-haphazard color squares. I think that post epitomizes your fearlessness and creativity.

Wow, I have been a follower forever it seems and have loved them all, however August 31, 2010 and your Master Bedroom just seemed to show your chic and classy personality and is one I really enjoyed. I was trying to makeover our bdrm. at the time and you were great inspiration. I always look to you for great ideas and great posts. Congratulations on your Anniversary. Can't wait to see more.

I have only been a friend for a short time but love reading your blog. I think my favorites have got to be your newest link ups...What I Wore Wednesday posts! I love them because I think they show your personality (or what I imagine it to be if we were real-life friends). Your poses & outfits are the best!

Happy One Year Blogiversary! Mine came and went without me realizing it as well! That's life I guess!

Debbie first of all congrats on your one year blog anniversary! My favorite post has to be Garage Salen Partay #3 when I first joined in the fun! It started us on a fun friendship that I hope never ends. I also love all your makeovers and decorating tips. I really remember your Rooster Party post one was more colorful then you. hugs, Linda

Happy Anniversary!!! Too many great posts to pick just one, but I'll go with the first one that came to mind...and I apologize now, but it is absolutely the red spray paint can vs. the garage.

(I got your message too btw, I just haven't had anything fun to blog about lately :o()

Well I do like all of your posts,but I especially liked the one where you painted your outdoor furniture different colors, and the one on blogger manners and the Halloween ones, and the one where you had your empty soda bottles in your Christmas decorations-at my house someone would have picked them up and threw them away! The only post I disliked was the one when I thought you were not going to blog anymore-I would have missed you! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.

January 23, 2011 at 12:07 PM  
Blogger Unknown said...

I think one of my favorite posts was an older one where you showed some outdoor decor and how you re-painted this one rooster all these different colors over time. I just loved it, can't even tell you why. I think it just inspired me to re-look at all the stuff that was no longer "fitting" in my decor to update it to fit it now!
I really do love your blog. This is a very sweet giveaway you are doing!

Debbie: I too, as someone else said, love your decorating posts, however, I must choose the one you recently published on how to make a Grab Button. When I first started trying to make one when I started my blog, I ended up paying someone to do it. I must laugh when I see my grab button, because, there are two symbols outside the square. I ain't even gonna try to get rid of them. I might mess something else up. Have a great week!

Blogger Vicki said...

Ha,ha,ha, Debbie! Just pick one?!
There are so many that draw me in and that give me inspiration ... BUT ... I would have to say that one of my favorites is from the Spring. You posted about decorating your porch and were spray painting everything yellow {not totally yellow).

First, yellow is my favorite color. Second, I love how you showed that with a little color change, you change the mood. For me it was such a fun and uplifting post!

I searched but couldn't find the post, but I remember one of some project you did that didn't exactly come out so good and you showed it anyway and laughed about it. I became your follower around that time because I thought wow, this is such a genuine person that shares from the heart and has a wonderful sense of humor. It has been fun ever since!

Hey girl! Happy Blogaversary! I love your Open Forum topics! I love to throw something out there and hear what everyone has to say. One of my favorites was about Family Traditions. I am obsessed with creating traditions and things and that was really a great post with lots of ideas! I also loved when you ran over the spray paint can... well, not that you ran over it, but the vivid detail you used to describe all that went down! You are too thoughtful with such an intriguing giveaway!

The one that I thought of was the Halloween theme where the cut off feet were laying by the door. I thought to myself that you must be a fun Mom and how much fun to grow up in your house. But, I do love all your post - you are such an inspiration and so down to earth, I just feel like I have known you forever!

I came across your blog in October of 2010. I fell in love with the pictures of the house. Especially where you keep changing the dining area or breakfast area. You were just beginning to decorate for Halloween. I love the decorations. Thats why I started following your blogs. The pictures drew me in and gave me ideas of what I wanted to do to my porch outside and in the inside of my home. I love Lucy she is the cutest Pug I have ever seen. Being a dog lover I could not pass her or your blog up.
Thanks for sharing a little part of your life to a Tennessee Southern Belle.

I started following you in the fall! I remember most is your Halloween decor... I liked that I was seeing a bit of scary and goth w/o it being scary and goth - does that make sense? ;P

There was so much "glammed up fall" and everyone saying "we don't decorate for Halloween, just fall"... all I could think was "what does everyone with KIDS do, especially 2 young boys who totally love it!?!". Thanks for answering that ;) Happy Belated one year!

First, I was trying to figure out how long it's been since I started visiting your blog. I believe I found you in early spring of last year.
It's hard to pick a post because you've had so many great ones!
I loved "This is for the birds" because I thought those teacup bird feeders were so clever & cute.

I also loved your spray paint posts of spring/summer 2010. There were many of them and you can bet I went right to Walmart & started spray painting everything in my wake because of them! LOL

I'm also partial to "What not to do with your pumpkins" because of the sheer humor of it & how close to home that one hits!

June 10, 2010. You had left a can a red spray paint on the garage floor on either you or your hubby ran over it and made a mess AND you showed feet photos AND it was a garage salin party day. I think that is about when I started coming here daily! Reminded me of me, but on a sugar high.
