Music Challenge - Day 7 - a song tha reminds me of an event

This song is one of me and my first and only true love's songs..he dedicated it to me back in the day along with a few others that I love and cherish :)

This one came to mind when it said a song that reminds me of an event...this one reminds me of the last time that we were together as boyfriend and girlfriend...we ended up going our own ways but we never stopped staying in touch with each other and we have always remained best of friends....and I'm thinking that maybe this upcoming year it won't be the end of the road for us..maybe it will be the beginning for us again since so many things have happened in both my life and his and now we are closer to each other and hoping that if things are meant to be then they will happen...

Faith Filled Footsteps Artisans Matter Giveaway

Anyone who has read my blog for awhile knows that I love bags! All bags, big, small and everything in between. This bag is no exception. I am in LOVE with the colors of this bag. I have never been a pink kind of girl, I go more for the greens and blues and this one speaks to me! Every time I carry this bag I am stopped by people to ask where I got it and everyone says they LOVE THIS BAG! Most times during the holidays people are looking for a bargain and they shop those big box stores with generic items for the lowest price possible. I personally love all things small business and made in the USA. This Artisan Bag is perfect. It is handmade with love, beautifully stitched and just gorgeous! I LOVE THIS BAG!

We are posting this on a Saturday to introduce you to Shop Small Business Saturday! Find out when your town is participating and save when you shop your local shops. We are small business and made in the USA all the way! Let me show you a few of the beautiful bags they offer!

Faith Filled Footsteps Absolute Jewelry Giveaway

Absolute Jewelery is a really neat company I recenlty found while Christmas shopping. I love all this new retro recycled jewelery! I am all about recycling and reusing items. This company makes the coolest (per my 12 year old) stuff! I never knew that you could recycle soda pop can and make jewelery that looks likes this! SUPER COOL! Let me show you!

A Soda Pop Can who knew! This stuff (as my daughter puts it) ROCKS! I have to say I think it is pretty cool and being an 80's kids it talks to the punk teenager in me!
This is the really cool necklace we got to try!

Here is just a little info about the shop owner. We are a Mother and Daughter team. Our love for creating jewelry started as a small hobby consuming our house and has turned into a thriving business still consuming our house! Our recycled soda can jewelry has become a favorite.

Music Challenge - Day 2 - Least Favorite Song

Well I really had a hard time narrowing this one down so I have decided that I am going to say anything with major rap in it from the 80's or so...The old time major rap songs I just don't want to hear, not necessarily because they are my least favorite songs but, because my now ex-hubby loved rap from the 80's so now they are my least favorite...

Music Challenge - Day 01 - Favorite Song

My favorite song of ALL time is Bed of Roses by Bon Jovi. I absolutely love that song..that is one of the songs that is me and one of my best friends who is also my only first and true loves song :) He dedicated that to me many years ago but it will always and forever hold a very very special place in my heart!
