Weirdo Facts & Awards Sprinkled w/Valentines


This is my corner shelf in my kitchen where I love to do little holiday displays. I finally got some of my vintage Valentines out.




Lisa over at A Thing For Roses tagged me to list 7 Weird facts about myself. The other night I was discussing this with my attached man and asking him what was something HE considered weird about me. I sort of kept pushing the issue and he pipes up and says "well it isn't like you are a member of the Addams Family or anything" I KNOW that, duh. We were both laughing at this point so it made for a fun discussion. But get this....All evening he kept saying well how about this?? And what about this? I told him it was no longer open for discussion and to stop trying to think of things that make me weird, lol. Here is what I came up with.........
1. I think dirt stinks, that earth smell, yuck it makes me gag. When I plant flowers I have to almost hold my breath 2. I have vintage ribbons I use for bookmarks and they have to match the book I am reading 3. I have tons of dinner plates because I can't serve food on plates if it doesn't match (ex. green beans on a green plate, NO) 4. I have to be the 1st one to mess up the top of a new jar of peanut butter. 5. I fix my hair before bed that way if there is a fire or emergency I won't show up on the local news looking like a total mess(can you say Paranoid) 6. I can't go on a road trip without having something to sift or sort through, my sister calls it "squirreling" She says I am like a freaking squirrel putting away nuts for winter. (we used to do lots of road trips) OK I quit, that is enough and you all are thinking I am nut for sure.
Not sure who to tag but I will give it some thought.

Hi Michelle, I always love your corner shelf and I adore all your beautiful Valentine's.

I got a good giggle reading your weirds. Very interesting.... I loved that you match bookmarks to the color of book you are reading. Hugs, Linda

Love that corner shelf! And all your Valentines. I have the very first Valentine card that was sent to me as a baby. It's a flocked heart. I need to get it out for display. Hope you're all better now. Hugs, Lynn
P.S. I like the smell of new earth especially after a rain.

Interesting! I can relate about the hair--I won't even go anywhere, even just to drop off the kids at school, unless I am "presentable".
Enjoyed my visit here!

Michelle, you always make me laugh! You are a 'great blogger'. I was tagged this week by Tammy "The Pink Magnolia" but I am still working on my list. I thought about asking my husband some weird things about me, but I was knew there would way way more than 10 on his list...didn't want to take it too far!

Thanks for sharing; and please stop by for a visit!

Oh Michelle, HONEY, you are a nut! And that's why I think we are destined to be life long pals! I love the Adam's Family crack. I actually do like the smell of fresh turned dirt but I hate the smell that my kids get on their skin when they play outside.
Your matching bookmarks/books and food/plates? Speechless. I have never heard this about anyone before in my life...I like you even more. Oh, and how do you feel about having the first bowl of cereal out of the cereal box? I am 'pro'. Thanks for checking in - I enjoyed your post and pics! - Jennifer
