Friday's Finds

First of all, Shelly told me about THIS:

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

What American accent do you have?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Yep, I live in the west. Arizona, more specifically and the Phoenix valley to be exact. There's a huge hodge-podge of people here so you end up with a sort of "blended accent"...or a non-accent, as I evidently have. My Florida buds do sound "twangy" to my ears. My folks' have retained more of the accent than I have--I almost never get asked where I'm from anymore. So this was pretty accurate! My only major problem at this point is enunciating the difference between "line" and "lion," a problem I've had almost all my life.

Now onto my other finds!

Ya know ya gotta do a nice Goodwill run every once in a while.

I scored this polka dot mug for $0.69! It matches the plate and bowl I got last year for my polka dot-themed birthday party. Plus it's a lovely fall color!!

I also got this cutie pie bird cage candle holder (on the left), marked $6 from some boutique. It was $3, a little steep for Goodwill...but it's charming and goes with my other bird cage candle holder nicely, so I had to have it!!

As the "Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!" song goes, "Life is filled with treasure!" Happy treasure hunting!
