I took the plunge and moved my personal blog to my own little corner of the web. I am no longer renting the Wordpress space, I have bought my own place. :-)

I've moved

I have put Leapin' Lilies on hold indefinitely. I have decided to put business on the back burner and focus on my family.

However, I still like to write so I started a personal blog called Simply Vicki. I think you'll like it, come check it out. :-)

If...Questions for the Game of Life #3

If you could have any type of fresh cut flowers delivered to your home every week, what one type would you pick?

Fresh cut flowers are lovely. I have a few favorites, but my number one would probably be yellow roses.

I love the color yellow. So bright and cheery.

And the scent of yellow roses is wonderful.

If...Questions for the Game of Life Series # 2

If you could inherit a comfortable home in any city in the world that you could use but not sell, where would you want it to be?

Loudon, Tennessee. It is a close enough drive that we could actually use it, the weather is nice the majority of the year and it is near a set of my grandparents.

A couple other reasons, it is less than an hour away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Which are two of my favorite spots. Tellico Village sits on a beautiful lake and is surrounded by old, tall trees. It is just beautiful.

My second choice would be New York City, how's that for an opposite? Lol.

If...Questions for the Game of Life Series

I have this wonderful little book that I bought when I was a teenager. I would sometimes take it with me when my sister and I would hang out with my hubby (not then, lol) and his brother. We had a lot of fun and the questions inspired many interesting conversations.

So I thought I would start a blog series answering some of the questions I find in the book. If you have a blog and would like to participate, copy the question from here and then share a link in the comment section so we can check out your answers.

If you want the book for yourself, you can check eBay to find If...Questions for the Game of Life. Or check it out on Amazon - Search Results for If...

Now, the question for today!

If you could teach your children only one life lesson, what would it be?

The power of words. I always knew growing up that words were powerful. They can easily build someone's confidence or shred their self-esteem to shreds. This alone is a good reason to watch what you say, but I look at if from a different perspective.

The Bible teaches that the "power of life and death are in the tongue" and that you reap what you sow. When you truly grasp these two concepts, it will change your life. Suddenly, those words that seemed harmless enough take on a whole new meaning. Phrases like "it kills me when she does that" or "I'm sick and tired of..."

Our words have the power to create or destroy. I'd much rather create. And since I, by no means, want to reap destruction, I think I'll watch my mouth.

So, what would you teach your kids?

P.S. You don't have to have a blog to participate, simply answer the question in the comments section. :-)

Free sterling silver jewelry

Quite a long while ago, I was introduced to a website that offers free sterling silver jewelry for shipping costs. The site is called Silver Jewelry Club, but there is no membership or fees involved. I've ordered and been thrilled with my purchases. The best thing is they only cost me $5.99! You do pay shipping for each free item individually, but you can't beat $5.99 for sterling silver jewelry!

The website shows four different jewelry pieces at a time and they rotate every 15 minutes. The stones I have seen featured include amethyst, citrine, smoky quartz, aquamarine, mother of pearl and more. They also often have pieces without gemstones, including men's rings. They regularly have earrings, pendants and rings in many styles.

The items ship quickly and are great quality. I can't say enough about this site.

Be sure to get your FREE sterling silver jewelry today!
