Bead Soup Sneak Peek and an Award!

The time is near, very near, and more than 200 fabulous people will be posting their bead soup creations on Saturday, 26 February. I even have mine done! Photographed and ready to go!!! I am ahead of the schedule, at least for me. So plan for a leisurely Saturday of visiting these wonderful people who've turned out for this wonderful event organized by the oh so lovely Lori at Pretty Things. You can find a link to every thing in the world, OK, everhing in the world related to the Bead Soup Blog Party right here. And on Saturday, an unusual blogging day for me, you will find links to all 200 plus participants right here on my very own blog.  Yes, and my very own Bead Soup reveal.

(Shhh, my finished piece is a lot more done looking that that teaser photo up there. It even has a surprise thrown to me by Bead Soup partner Melissa Meman. Challenged I was by a bounty of goodies to choose from! So do come back and see how I solved the riddle.)

I got doubly blessed with a blog award today, by my friends Gunilla and Mary Ann. Gosh, golly, am I loved or what? Sooo part of this award is to reveal 7 things about me that you may not know and presumably might find interesting, if not amusing. So here we go....

1. I don't like breakfast. I eat left overs from the night before. I like soup for breakfast.
2. I like breakfast for dinner, cereal, pancakes, scrambled eggs are all fair game at supper time.
3. I love my dogs just as much as I love my children. My children are happy with that because they love my dogs just as much as they love me.
4. I am short, really short, like not all that much over 5 feet tall but not quite that wide. I do have a tall attitude and feel like I am about 5 foot 10 inches tall.
5. I don't much care for brocolli even though I know it is good for me.
6. I really, seriously really, like the combination of purple and green.
7. All of my dogs and cats have been named for family members.

Now, this is probably  much more information than you probably wanted to know about me. But it is all true! (Sadly). I am supposed to pass this on to 15 people. Seriously, there are so many bloggers that I admire. I know this is a total and complete cheat but I'm just leaving it all to you. Yes, broken chain, I know and I'll suffer those consequences silently.

But do go give some blog love to my friends, Mary Ann and Gunilla.

Your sneak peek looks so gorgeous! You may be the only person I am taller than, that is a first,ha! No, really I am just over 5 ft as well (by 2 hole inches). I love breakfast for dinner too!

Your sneak peek is very intriguing, LeAnn. I do agree - you are very loved.
Your no. 1 made me laugh and think of my sister - leftover enchiladas are breakfast to her!

Can't wait to see your bead soup! And I love little tid bits about "friends"
Too don't like breakfast, I totally get this, but you like breakfast for dinner, me too, so doesn't that mean that you're eating breakfast for breakfast, just left over? ((Hugs!))

Yikes LeAnn,

Your teaser is sooo intriguing!! I'll be back tomorrow to do a bit of vicarious living! I'll have you know I always wished I was as short as the rest of my Italian family when I was younger. I always felt like an Amazon. Now I don't think about it even though most of my friends and adopted country men are hight-challanged. :) Well it does come to mind when dodging air conditioners pertruding out of buildings at the height of 5&1/2 feet. Hign enough for most to walk under but will put a huge goose egg on this Amazon's forhead!!! :)

Pattie ;)
