One World One Heart 2011

WELCOME, to my serendipitous blog!  I am an artist, a writer, a mother, a wife, a collector, a yard-saler, a flea-marketing, auction-going lover of all things vintage and antique.  My husband and I have been married for five years, and we live in a 160+ year old home that is listed on the historic register.  We are slowly working on this grand old house and filling it with art, furniture, antiques and things that we love.  Sometimes the going is slow, but we do love making this place into the home of our dreams.  And she's quite a pretty lady!  We juggle the ups and downs of living in an old, old house with our every day, hectic lives filled with cats, dogs, full-time jobs, and, most importantly, our nine-month old son.  No day is typical around the Little Young House!  I hope you'll make yourself a nice cup of tea, put your feet up and stay awhile at my blog.  I'd love to get to know you!

ANYWAY, on to the good stuff!  I AM GIVING AWAY A SPECIAL PRIZE (see below for details)!  This giveaway is open to all active bloggers worldwide.  Just leave a comment and make sure I have a way of contacting you if you should win.  I'd also love to visit your blog, so please be sure to tell me how I can do that.  I'll announce a winner on February 17, 2011.

WHAT WILL YOU WIN?  Oh, you artists out there will love this!  How about a box of old stamps, old stickers, old clips of art work snagged from old magazines and books...a box full of goodies that will help you create up a storm!  Just looking through these things gets my creative juices flowing!  I can just imagine all the things I could do with these wonderful old treasures. 

Leave me a comment...that's all you have to do to enter!  And I hope you'll stop by and visit with me again soon!

You DO sound busy! Enjoy that baby--when I was young, I always thought it was so silly when people said "they grow up so fast," and then I had my own--it is all too true! But, the good news is, they just get to be more and more fun as it goes along!

The goodies are great--Happy OWOH to you! Stop by and say hi if you get the chance; I'm OWOHing along with you.

Hi Paula, You aren't going to believe this, but I just found my stamp collection a few weeks ago. It had been missing for years. It made me crazy trying to figure out were it had gone. While putting away Christmas in the garage, it just showed up. Looking innocent as if to ask " why haven't you noticed me the other million times you walk through here."

Annie said...

Hi Paula, i would love some stamps!!!! It was so nice to stay awhile and enjoy a coffee with you. If you get the chance I would love you to visit me downunder (Australia) so I can return the favour. #819

Paula, merci beaucoup for visiting my blog. I hope you'll come again soon. Serendipity is one of my favorite movies! I always thought I wanted to run a B&B but I hear the life expectancy is about 5 years. I can understand that -- it's like an online business; you are perpetually 'on'!ha! It is nice to meet you via OWOH:)

ArchaeoLaura said...

Your site has such gorgeous photography! Best of luck with your historic home. Thanks for taking care of a piece of history.
Have a great OWOH!

Hi Paula, my vintage sister. Thanks for the visit and kind words. You have a lovely blog and who wouldn't want all those wonderful bits and pieces for creating! Following you now also.

Shelly said...

Hi Paula! I'm so very, very glad that you stopped by my blog! It's always nice to hear there are other people in the world who have heard of Middletown, Ohio! We haven't really been here long enough to know anyone (plus, I work from home, so I rarely leave the house). And you know I can't resist from posting here for a chance at your giveaway - right up my alley! AND, congratulations on your sweet baby boy. I have a really good friend who recently adopted a baby boy (he'll be 1 in late March), so I know what an amazing event that is for you. YAY!!!! Hugs to you, Shelly
