5QFriday ~ 5/13/2011 {belated post}

Due to all the blogger issues last week, and then working at a H/J horse show this weekend, I am a little/lot late in getting these questions and answer posted. 

On another note…

I am going to be switching to a Wordpress blog, and am in the process of getting it set up.  If you want to watch the progress {and change your bookmarks} the new blog’s site address is  I will switch/redirect the domain once I have all the blogger content moved over.

Five Question Friday at My Little Life

1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none? (From@ThisDaddys_Blog) – I love to go sockless when I am wearing slip-on shoes {which I love to wear}, but… when  I am wearing sneakers I wear angle socks.  And when wearing boots it is calf socks.  I only use tube/knee high socks under my tall riding boots. 

Can you tell I like to have a sock between me and my shoes?

2. Was your childs (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?! (From @mamatodh) – Ms. Diva’s name was picked by Mr. SD.  He would not negotiate except he did let me pick out the middle name for her.  So, on Baby Diva I got to pick what we call her.  Though there was still some discussion on both names.

3. What is your favorite type of weather? (From @TheSpunkyDiva) – I love a warm, slightly breezy day.  The type that I perfect for a nap in the hammock {if you have a hammock}.  I also love a good soaking rain-storm.  Especially if I get to stay in bed and listen to it.  Having to go fed the horses in the rain is not so fun.

4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust") – Normally after one day of ‘excessive’ sleeping in I will wake up between 7 and 8 depending when I went to bed.  My problem is that if left to my own devices I would stay up way late, and then wake up way late.

5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet? (From Pam at "Troop Petrie") – Nope.  I want to be cremated.  Mr. SD isn’t keen on that idea.  So, we haven’t really dealt with it.  I figure plots, caskets, etc. are way more expensive than they are worth.  It is obscene the amount of money they make once you are dead.  Dealing with Grandpa’s death in March was eye opening.  Almost $2k for nothing at all but cremating his body.  Not even anything fancy to put his ashes in.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
