I have been tagged by Natasha with the Name Game tag.
Here are the rules:you must state the rules before you state the facts. The facts are to name one thing relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you do not have a middle name then you choose the middle name that you wish you had. Then you tag one person for each letter of your middle name and let them know they have been tagged. Why did I have to have the same middle name as my Aunt - way tooo.. many letters.
My middle name is Margaret.

M - Melanie my 1st born daughter and Michael my 4th child
A - Amy my 2nd child who is due to have a baby on 15th October
R - Roses - I just love roses, especially Iceberg Roses that flower forever
G - is for Grandma, thats me and I love being a Grandma
A - my first name starts with A
R - remember - I better remember to list Daniel child number 3 or I will be in trouble
E - everyone in blogland I just love reading blogs
T - is for tagging, now who will it be?????
8 lucky ladies cos Margaret has 8 letters Now 8 lucky ladies - who will it be???

OK ladies I tag ~ Shannon from Paint Mine Pink, Coll from Collsgarden, Peta from Pretty in Pink, Katrina from Little La Las, Siobhan from Vintage Mosaics, Gail from Gail and Tony McCormack, Ele from a Bit of Pink Heaven and Stephanie from Angelic Accents.

Now for a photo. I picked up this old cabinet that should have had a leadlight door. It was dark stained and flaky. So out came the sand paper and white paint. Now a sweet little cabinet to display some crystal and cut glass goodies. the lamp on top was my first ever effort at covering an old lamp shade. I love how pretty the crystal looks inside the white painted cabinet.
