bumpin it so I can find it! LOL

Blackshear, GA

Ok ladies, I thought I had a list but that must have been the old one.
Gift Certificates would be great, I go through potting soil from Lowes like crazy. I like CUTE garden ornaments or signs, I have just recently decided I was going to start collecting birdhouses. I found 7 the other day at a yard sale, they were really cute!!

I am really easy to please, and if it has to do with gardening or flowers, I will probably like it.

Charleen, I wear pierced earrings and necklaces, but usually not bracelets, they 'worry' me, I don't even wear a watch.

Birthday cards are great too!! Thanks, Paula

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

What color Paula??? I'll find you something. Already got the plant.
Thank you dear....
Who Next??? Barhea7 and Ddbydeb ????
Need to know girls........

Blackshear, GA

Well Charleen, if you mean for jewelry, anything is fine. Purple has always been my favorite color, but I love to wear lime green, and I only buy a red vehicle. How weird is that?

Leesburg, VA(Zone 7a)

Likes: Gardening, Bird feeders, Bird baths, Sewing(not quilts yet) & Crafting. Pets & little critters - butterflies, hummingbirds & dragonflies. Also am trying to start a fairy garden..

Dislikes: real bugs! yikes! Not really into chocolate. Oh - i HATE winter!

Decorating scheme: Kitchen is a wine theme with dark purple, white & tan colors. Downstairs abth is a kids jungle theme and upstairs is asian, or Feng shui. The rest of my house is tan/white with earthtones.

Leesburg, VA(Zone 7a)

This was DDeb:

Hi glad to be here!
Frogs, Birds I LOVE Birds! I have 3 or 4 feeders and do not think its enough LOL! Dragonflies, Bulbs I would love some Iris or Lily Bulbs, natural smelling Candles or Sachets, doodads for the garden, wind chimes, and patio lights, natural bug repellents we live in Mosquito Central LOL! I am pretty eclectic in my wants and likes. I like just about anything and shop at Lowes, Wal-Mart and Target. I love the Nursery called Abide a While in Mt Pleasant SC too that is where I go to get my Heirloom Tomatoes and Whole Foods is cool to I picked up my Sorrel Plant there! I love Jasmines too the smell and the flower! I am in Zone 9 so can grow just about anything that is heat and humidity tolerant

Dislikes: Magnolia and Gardenias I detest the smell of them I think I am the only person who does I swear! LOL Tulip Bulbs ( Like them they just do not do well here)

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

that is great!! Love it. thanks for the help.

(Chris) Des Moines, IA(Zone 5a)

I have no outside garden at all now.. I do have a 9 ft balcony and I've been buying planters/window boxes for plants out there. But the other plants are coming inside. :) The landlord says I can't paint the walls..they are ALL a white color..but I can fill the rooms with color.. so the kitchen is being done in bright reds and deep yellow (No Apples please LOL) Anything bright and cheerful would be wonderful.. I love Blue Jays, Cardinals and Hummingbirds, so those are being incorporated into my new place.

My Likes: I love garden art, cardinals and blue jays, windchimes! I adore the Willow Tree figurines..I have 8 so far (Happiness, Angel of Kindness, Angel of Remembrance, With Affection, Thank You, Friendship and Angel of the Garden..and one I received from Dahtzu, Faye..I don't know the name for her, but she's holding a little dog in her arms). I do scrapbooking, so any supplies are always favorite supplier is K&Co..I love their embellishments :)

For the new indoor garden I would love to have any unique planters, (I love rustic or bright colors) I would love to start getting some cool rocks too! I moved here from Okla and it wasn't until I got to unloading things that I realized that I left two very special rocks back there :( I enjoy nuts and other salty snacks. I collect ceramic cat figurines.. I would love starts from any of your houseplants that you'd like to share..or any outdoor plant that I might be able to convince to live in my home LOL. I don't have much sunshine due to trees, so a plant that loves shade would be great :)

My Dislikes: not many things.. lol.. candles that smell like food ..always makes me hungry :) Can't eat chocolate..would rather have salty stuff :) Don't drink coffee..I like Pepsi for my caffeine.

I'd love gift cards from Walmart, Lowes, Menards, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Collections ETC, Barnes & Noble, any neat online store (but not necessarily for seeds..that I'm cutting way back on), Oriental Trading Co. or any restaurant too!

I subscribe to Birds & Bloom, Birds & Bloom Extra, Reader's Digest, and Creating Keepsakes. I would love any USED magazines or books that are about indoor gardening, houseplants or container gardening.

thanks :)

(Joy) Hempstead, TX(Zone 8b)

We are on a farm, so the whole country thing is lost on me. However I do like casual, rustic, simple, but without hearts and no country blue.

I am trying to have my whole yard as a cottage garden so perennials that flower are great. Butterfly, hummingbird, and bee flowers.
Bird houses that I can mount on my fence posts.
Yard art
Repurposed things
Collect pottery pitchers
Bugs, wind sculptures, bird feeders, toad houses
Blue bottles for my bottle tree

Not so much on house plants, kitten and dogs love them too much.
Don't like fairies, gnomes, cutesy things.
Don't need candles

Favorite color, hmmmm, what day is it. Love rich colors, purple, yellow, reds, pinks, blues, not necessarily for the house. It is yellows and cobalt blues with lots of natural wood, simple farm style with antiques. I love to cook, can, bake, and grill.
Chocolate is always good. Homemade goodies are great.

Love fun things, unexpected things and things made with love.

Wrist size is 7 1/2". My ears are pierced.

We live at Lowes, WalMart, and Barnes and Noble. I am an EBay hunter gatherer because I cannot get what I want around here.. But my absolute favorite place is the Antique Rose Emporium in Independence, TX.
They have heirloom roses, plants, vegetables, and bunches of other fun garden stuff.

Geez, I have sheep, cattle, ducks, geese, peacocks, dogs, cats, a Hahn's Macaw, and dairy goats. Oh, and a black Clydesdale pasture pretty named Sox.

Houma, LA(Zone 9a) do I participate in the giving?

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

go back to the birthday link where it gives everyone's birthday. (the link is posted on me up a little way) Whoever has a birthday for that month gets a gift. Happy gifting!

Mountain View, CA(Zone 9b)

I have a small collection of amaryllis/hippeastrums, including some that I started from seeds collected from my own flowers, that I grow in containers. Many of mine are fragrant to various degrees, but I also look for those with other interesting characteristics to add to the gene pool in my collection.
I do some other container gardening, too; now focusing on fragrant flowers, especially ones I can use as cut flowers. I want to put my collection of vases to better use.
I also enjoy crocheting, cooking, baking, and reading (mostly audio books, sometimes braille). And I love listening to the sounds of nature (such as birds, streams, ocean waves).
Jewelry: I don't wear much. But a necklace (20") or barrettes to wear for special occasions would be nice. Please, no bracelets or earrings; I'd be afraid they'd get caught on something.
Favorite colors: like them all, but especially purples, greens, and blues.
Favorite little critters: dogs (especially labs), cats, quails, wildlife/birds (no slugs, snails, ants).
OTHER LIKES: chocolate. homemade goodies and things. scented soaps. scented or beeswax candles. herbal tea (such as chamomile, blueberry, and orange or apple spice). ;,t-shirts, sweat shirts, sweaters (size large).
Gift cards: SummerWinds Nursery, Home Depot, Michaels, Jo-Ann's, and some online places...
(Off the Beaten Path is a great place to get cookie cutters, bakeware, and more).
DISLIKES: Shrubs (don't have room). Invasives (I try to avoid these). Body wash, bath powders, etc. Foods containing hot spices or olives. Alcoholic beverages. Coffee and caffeinated teas. White chocolate. Headbands (don't fit right). Garden flags (no where to hang). Clothing with hoods.
