A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Today, it's short and sweet. I am sharing a couple of my teacups with you, as well as my being tagged by two wonderful blogging buddies. Thankyou to Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making Pink Saturday possible. Please check out the other pinkies for some great ideas and beautiful blogs.
After taking a few pictures of my cups, I need a cup of somethin somethin!

Thankyou for joining me this week, have a great weekend and I will see you next week.
TAGGED: YIPPEE, lets play:
A couple weeks ago a friend of mine tagged me with this wonderful honor and asked if I would play. I said I would...........then last week another wonderful blogger tagged me and asked if I would play. I said I would: here I am: finally!!!!
This play date was set up by Angela from Fiorese Rocks and Stephanie from Lulu's Cottage. I thankyou both for this.
To play, I need to devulge 10 things about me that people don't know and to list more blogger friends to play. Sounds easy enough......not for me, this is harder than you know.

1. I am a huge procrastinator (as is evident here, sorry girls)

2. I design and create cottage decor, but I am a lover of primitive things.

3. I still have no idea what I am doing or how to do the blog thing. It just looks like it, or does it?

4. I am loyal to a fault and a great, trusted friend to have.

5. I can keep a secret, no matter how juicy it is.

6. I love McDonalds big macs, fries and diet soda

7. I still feel like I am in my 30's altho that age passed me by many moons ago.

8. I love animals of all types

9. I am disappointed that my website isn't doing better, (it's fairly new, I know)

10. I don't like the heat, love the cold, would rather be in sweats and a sweatshirt, then shorts and a tee shirt.

Here is a list of fellow bloggers I would love to invite to play:

Jil from Say It With Roses

Kirstin from Aroca Family

Carol from Heirlooms For You

Sherry from Country Wings In Phoenix

Lisa from Pink Porches

Vicki said...

Hi, Char, Thank you for visiting my new blog. I am still learning how to do everything, but I am having fun. I am participating in "Pink Saturday", what fun! You asked if I liked the bride pillow I bought from you. The answer is "yes". I have it in my living room on a victorian looking chair, and I love it. I visited your web store. Everything is very pretty. Hope your weekend is great!! Vicki

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Boy! I get to play too. I will post this game for my Sunday post. It will give me something to work on. How fun will this be. You my friend did very well. I absolutely love this first tea cup. It is so devine. Thank you for sharing this PS post. It is beautiful. Do you hear me clapping? Clap, clap, clap. Make sure you check back Sunday evening and find out what I post. Stop by and say hi for PS. Country Hugs and love, Sherry

Beautiful tea cups.

Happy Pink Saturday!!

debbie said...

Beautiful teacups
I loved learning 10 things about you
Being a loyal friend and not passing on gossip is a "RARE" trait and something to be quite proud of...most people cannot wait to spread gossip and of course add their chapter to it.
Please don't judge your blog by someone else.....I was disappointed in myself and my blog but I have made some wonderful friends and I am just a simple, not fancy person.....Have you set a goal for where you want to be
do you participate in outdoor wednesday....that is getting almost as big as pink saturday....
there is something every day of the week but I just can't stay on the computer that much
You have a lovely blog and you are a lovely person

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Darling tea cups! I love a big mac and fries too, but I make it all worse by buying a real Coke. Shhh, don't tell anyone! :-)

Sit-N-Chat said...

These are so pretty but the last one is specially pretty! I enjoyed seeing the grand babies in the pool. Yes, we've had the triple digits and I don't feel so swift in the heat either. We are being blessed with rain this week. PTL!
Have a great day.

Your tea cups are so sweet. How about a little wine in them for a little sumthin sumthin. No one would know! lol

♥Mimi♥ said...

Cold, dark, raining all week. Summer is not going to make it to northern Michigan this year. We haven't seen many days over 70! WOWZA! So, with that in mind, Pink Saturday is especially important for me. I sit back and cruise around the blogs filling myself to the brim with my favorite color.

♥Thanks so much for adding a bit of sunshine to my day♥

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

HPS very late from New Orleans! Oh, Big Macs are a sinful delight, aren't they? Even more so now that I cannot get them where I live. Procrastinator? I'm right there with you! We are TOO in our 30s, haven't you heard? XX is the new 30! And, what is it with us, loving the cottage decor, but our real self is something else? Modern, for me. Although scandinavian french country just about combines all. I'd switch places with you in a heart beat. You can HAVE Vermont! I'll take AZ. :-) And, finally, can't thank you enough for being a loyal friend! You know I NEVER give up, too!

Hi Char! Happy belated Pink Saturday! Your pink teacups are so delicate and beautiful. Sometimes I wish my blog had more traffic, too. I think consistency is the key and just keep being uniquely you. I very much enjoyed visiting your blog! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by to visit me.
