Welcome to Temptation Mondays! Temptation Mondays is where I share with you some of the many creative bloggers that have beautiful gifts for you to purchase from their sites.
I have been told that Christmas is just around the corner so with that being said it is time ladies to do some shopping.  These creative shops are just a click away. Sit back relax and have fun shopping.
BE like me and send this post to your kids who keep asking you what you want for Christmas. I just sent them all these lovely sites and told them anything they find on these sites will be a great gift.
If you want your shop listed on Temptation Mondays, I ask only that you send me an email to



 If you want to be listed on here each Monday you SHOULD send me a email to let me know you want your site on here.  THANKS MAGGIE

Good Morning Sweet Maggie...
Yee Ha! I just became an expert for working on a ranch. Did you say you need some help down there? Ha! Ha! Ha!

I love it when you share. I like LuLu's jewelry, this bracelet I am going to have to check out.

Hope you are doing well. Back to work today. Another Monday, Monday. Stop by soon. I so love it when you do.

Country hugs and much love...Sherry

I follow the ladies when it comes to reading and watching the Twilight series but because I have two teenage boys, I truly feel old and creeped out by looking at these young guys.

I have to check out some of these sights and see what I might want to get myself. Thanks for the tip.

Hello!!! My dear new Texan blogger friend....I love having guests come by and stop to tell me they've visited for the first time. I'm so glad you dropped by!!! That way I get to meet you too. Of course you figured that out already, huh? LOL

I read your profile and your life's story sounds like you have made good of everything....I also have two grandchildren, but are lucky to have one of each. I, on the other hand became instantly jealous---I have two g-sons and always wanted a g-daughter. "Thinking it'll never happen".

I also, have a son living in H-town. So, we're nearly a Texas sense. LOL

I do gab on and on, let me tell you, I loved this post. That cow mug is to 'die for''s darling.

Thanks again, for stopping by. I'm gonna go mark myself as your follower as soon as I post this comment. Do come over anytime again for another "howdy do".

Hi Maggie, Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words! I think after visiting your blog and seeing that hunk I need to come visit your ranch if you've hired him! ;-) Wowza! And I love the idea of your Temptation Monday...a nice idea and I'd love it if you like any of my items to be added, but certainly don't expect it.

Hi, Maggie, thanks for stopping by with such sweet comments! I have finally finished decorating and now I see I should have gotten me some help like you have on the ranch!
