I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

In October, Girls creator and star Lena Dunham sold a book to Random House for $3.7 million. Now, Gawker has obtained and published Dunham's 66-page proposal - complete with illustrations!

The book's structure is inspired by Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All and, judging by the proposal, it will allow readers the same deeply personal glimpse at Dunham that anyone who's seen her HBO comedy has become accustomed to.

Here are a few memorable quotes from Dunham's million-dollar proposal:

Check out celebrities' dramatic weight loss

•"Every ice pop I ate, every movie I watched, every poem I wrote was tinged with a fearful loss."

•"I went to my first Women's Action Coalition meeting at age three."

•"Cassie was a very fat girl we knew who we had nicknamed fat Cassie because she also wasn't that nice."

Check out Dunham's full proposal here.

Does the book sound interesting to you?
