Blog Party

March 5, 2007 @ 5:02 pm | Filed under:

Have you heard about the Ultimate Blog Party? It’s happening even as we speak. The host is 5 Minutes for Mom, and about a zillion bloggers are joining in the fun. Check out those links and you’ll see how to take part, including how to qualify for one of the many nifty prizes.

If you’re a fellow partier dropping in to see what kind of chips I’ve got in my snack bowl, welcome! We’re a pretty chipper bunch here at the Lilting House. We are mad for books and have been known to get giddy over a really great day planner. We like to spend our mornings travelling the world vicariously in the company of our pals Mr. Putty and Miss Mason, but not all our journeys are vicarious, oh no. We can muster up a Westward Ho! with the best of ’em when necessary.

One of the smallest among us brings adventure right into the house on a daily basis; and the smallest of all? She is scrumptiousness personified.

Despite all this adventure, we like to live life at a mellow pace, and there are only a handful of things we try to fit into a day.

We’re glad to have you here. Make yourself at home. We encourage lounging in pajamas and finding creative uses for dryer lint. And we always, always have chocolate.

    Hi Melissa and welcome to the party!

    While I’m add it can I say that I just started reading the first Martha book to my kids and they love it! My little girl made a picture of the fairy with green hair from the first chapter! I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying it.

    Party on!!!

    Great party, love the snacks!
    I have to tell you that I just read the first Martha book and I loved it. I will begin reading it to the family next week.

    drop on by my party if you get a chance, I’ve got sweet tea and avocado dip, cause avocado is just something we overdo here in Ca! Have you noticed that yet, Melissa?

    see you around the party circuit!
