Seven Random Things About Roxane

Hi Everyone, it's been crazy busy around here! I have way too many projects going on at once and I'm spending every spare moment outside watering. I'm desperately trying to keep all my new garden plants alive in this heat. It's really HOT out there! ... But I really know I'm getting behind in the blog world when my son calls to ask me what I've been up to because I haven't posted anything all week. And I do have tons of finished projects to share, just not enough time to share them!

Today I want to send a huge thank you out to Jane at Urbane Jane for passing The Versatile Blooger award along to us! Jane is one cute and multi-talented girl who blogs from Canada. She is married to a handy man who loves renovation projects too - how much fun is that!

Jane recently tried her hand at jewelry making and created this beautiful ring made out of clay - gorgeous!

I love all the bright and modern touches in Jane's home like this mod podged fabric frame.

And my favorite project is this coffee table Jane turned into a beautiful and functional bench for her foyer!

Like I said, Jane is multi-talented!
I hope you get a chance to stop by and say hello at Urbane Jane!

So today is Roxane's turn. Roxane is the newest member of Elizabeth & Co. and she's easing in slowly as she also has a full-time job at a local college library. I've known Roxane for many years. We have children the same ages and we've worked on more school booster projects than I can count. Here are few random things you might not know about Roxane ...

1. I must have coffee in the morning (It gets ugly if I don’t )

2. I read a lot and have kept a journal for thirty years of the books I have read.

3. Gummy bears and Rita’s gelato are my weakness.

4. Forty to sixty people at my house for Thanksgiving is normal ( this is just my husband’s side of the family)

5. I find hanging clothes on the line to dry a relaxing chore.

6. I am very curious sometimes too curious!

7. My family is my joy. I am blessed with 3 wonderful adult children, a soon to be daughter-in-law and a husband who is always in my corner.

Thanks Roxane, so happy to have you as part of the team!

yep, it's HOT-I'm being selective about the plants I save/water. I can't water everything. :(

Happy to know a little bit about Roxanne, I look forward to seeing what she has to offer! What a great group of ladies!

Great to learn more about Roxanne! It's definitely sweltering these days. I don't think there is going to be much relief this week either. Stay cool. Megan
