Another Fun Award!


I received this bookworm award yesterday from Donna at http://adventureswithtassie.blogspot.com/ and from Tam at http://yakiddyyakyak.blogspot.com/ They are both great ladies!!

Here's how it goes. Pass this on to 5 blogging friends. Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write out the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that...

This is going to be interesting..... I'm in Kevin's T.V./Computer room. He reads really weird books, so the closest one to me is...... Shadow Dale. It's some kind of fantasy book. Ok.....pg.56....
The flask was empty and Kelemvor allowed Caitlin's head to sink into the soft pillows."Now what?"
"Now we wait,"Zehla said."unless we poisoned her it will probably be morning before we see any results."
"If the potion works, will she be fit to ride with us?"Kelemvor said anxiously.
"She will live,"Zehla said. "We will see about the rest".
A little strange huh? Don't you all want to go out and buy this book! The people I give this award to are.......
Have fun doing this, I hope you have a book as interesting as mine close to you! He He. Does anyone know why pg. 56? Just wondering.

Hi Kristen, Thank you so much! I also got the same award from Bo and I will post it soon. Sounds like an interesting book. Sounds like something mine would read as well.
I don't know why page 56. Hmmm. Have a wonderful weekend.~Melissa

Hi Kristen...just stopped by to say girl, you major league started something! :-) I had seen YOUR gorgeous plaid draperies in Lynne's beautiful den but seeing them in Vanna's house, too, just did me in. I couldn't stand it anymore...had to order some. Those are going to be the official drapery of blogland, I believe.
:-) They no longer had any sizes left but the reallllly long ones, so that's what I ordered. If they puddle toooo much when I get them, I may have to hem them. They are either going in my living room or dining room...not sure which yet. And to think you started this plaid evolution that's going on here in blogville! :-) I love all the Christmas decorating you did for you client, btw...beautiful! And congratulations on your award! Susan

Oh, forgot to say...my sister ordered the teapot from QVC and I've added the link to my blog. But someone else said that you can find them at Target and Walmart, too. I also found them on eBay today.
