A Mish Mash Tuesday!
I have a mix of things to share with you today. First, I was
awarded/tagged with a special book award from Teresa
of Inside The Mind Of A Mini Madwoman. I'm not so sure it's
an award so much as a way to pass on the love of books and
reading to others. To share how special it is to be able to pick
up the written word and be transported into another world
in a matter of minutes. I love to read, but must admit that it
has taken a backseat since I've started blogging.
The object here is to:
1. Collect the book you have most handy
2. Turn to page 161
3. Find the 5th complete sentence
4. Cite the sentence on your blog
5. Pass it on to 5 other blogs
My book happened to be Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince. The movie was coming out and I thought I'd read
the book again. It didn't happen. I'll have to read it before the
DVD comes out, since I probably won't see it until then
anyway. I've already read it 2 or 3 times, so it's not like I'm
missing out! Here is the 5th sentence:
"And let me see, another twenty for your Muggle attire."
This line was said by the one teacher, Professor Snape, that
is Harry Potter's nemesis at his school, Hogwarts. The twenty
points he refers to is a reduction of points that all the classes
use as a reward system. Twenty points is a rather large
amount to take away, especially for the offense of being out
uniform, wearing "Muggle" clothing. Muggles are non-magic
people, like you and I. At least I'm assuming none of you do
magic! If you've never read these books, you should
seriously consider picking the first one up and trying it. They
are for adults too and they are truly "MAGICAL"!
I'm going to pass this on to everyone and no one. If you'd
like to play along and continue passing along the BOOK LOVE,
please do, but I'm not going to pass it on to anyone in particular
because it has already been making it's way around my
Now on to item #2: I WON something AGAIN!!! I won this
fun and unique print made by Chelsea Rose. The Giveaway
was offered by Studio M.M.E. Stutterings and lucky little me
won! I had my choice of 3 prints and this is the one I chose.
I think she's FABULOUS! Thank you to both ladies!
My last piece of business to tell you all about today is another
giveaway! Jennifer from Maidenshade. She is offering the
nightlight shade above! All you have to do is leave her a
comment letting her know you are interested. You can also
submit someone else's name instead of your own if you wish!
Isn't that a great idea! The giveaway ends Sunday, July 26th.
When yo get to her site, she is also having a sale on some
great handmade shades.
I thought this one went with my Harry Potter theme!
This little pink doggie nightlight was just SO cute!
My FAVORITE, the Harlequin lampshade! She has many more
