Review - Seven Pounds & Award

Lisa from Book and Cooks gave me the Butterfly award. Like me, Lisa likes to read. We differ with the love of cooking. I used to do it a good bit, but now my kitchen has retired.
I feel like breaking rules today, so instead of parceling this award out to my wonderful Blogger friends, I invite you to help yourself. If you're visiting and commenting, please let me award you with this butterfly award.

*****


Yesterday afternoon, Johnny and I went to see Will Smith in Seven Pounds. It's one of those films that must be seen from the beginning, so don't be late. There is purposely some confusion, but everything is made clear at the end. I give it a big thumbs up! Johnny does too.




I think this one will win some Oscars. Every actor nails their part. The script is one that will have people thinking and discussing for months to come. It's a phenomenal film. I urge you to see it. You won't be disappointed.

Good morning Sally, thank you for the movie review. I want to see it now! smiling.

Congrats on your award. Thank you for giving it to your blogger friends. You know I am a reader too.

When I post some of my E-mails that have been forwarded to me, I wonder if my blogging friends have seen it before. Sometimes they have.
Since I have only used the computer since May 08, I am new to lots of the E-mails I share. I really like this one today.

Hugs...Jeanne

Blue. :D

I saw one on a blog. I showed it to DD and now wished I had bookmarked it. DD loved it. I have another chandelier for my DR and she wants the DR painted and put in her room. It is way too big though. But a friend suggested that we look for a smaller one and paint it, and make a swag out of it. Oh now I wished I had bookmarked that blog. I was just surfing one day and stumbled on it. I would look great in a Fla house. I was just like my brass 8 arm Dinning room chandi. It was spraypainted two toned one of the lighter blues on your back ground and an aqua blue. And they add prisms. It was beautiful! If I ever find it again, I will post if for you. I would be pretty in a Fla DR or a girls room or a Cal room or a sun room. or a Whimsical room.
