Illegitimis Non Carborundum

A big thank you to my friend Cyndy at for the lovely award!

There are rules for this award as well:
1. Post a funny or sweet keepsake that tells something about myself.
2. Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers that I think are keepers.

So here's my keepsake. It's actually an area in my bedroom. We have a very large & deep window sill and on there I keep several things that really mean something to me. I have things there that the kids bought me when they were little and did Secret Santa Shopping at their school Christmas party. I have my beautiful bell from Jerry that he couldn't wait to give me so he gave me clues like, it's blue, you can ring it like this, it makes a sound and begins with the letter B, my wind up Bengals helmut head that Gregory gave me because "I thought it would make you smile"and it does every time I look at it. I have my beautiful castle that Victoria made me from clay, my dragon that Jerry made from clay one year and the different poems Greg wrote for me. Just all the cute things that I can look over at and remember, which always brings a smile to me when I'm needing it!

I really need to take a good picture of it this weekend so I'll always have it with me!
My other Keepsake that I really love is my digital photo key chain. I really wanted one and the boys got it for me for my birthday. Of course they found me the purple one and won me over! I really need to add some new pics to it this weekend since I have some great ones from the shore.


  1. That Cyndy sure is a nice girl.
    And with that fancy camera of yours, how are you NOT going to take pictures of these keepsakes for us??

  2. Congratulations on your much deserved award!


So, whatcha thinkin?
