Tuesday 4 Meme- All That Glitters

All That Glitters

Welcome to Tuesday 4 where we keep alive the weekly meme started by our good friend Toni Taddeo. I think she would be pleased to see people joining in.

 Let's talk about all that Glitters!

1. Everyone has a   birth stone and a birth flower.
 What are yours?  My birth month is September, so my birthstone is Sapphire....which was one of my dad's nicknames for me and my mom made sure I had a lot of sapphire jewelry.  I still love sapphires to this day.  My birthday flower is the Aster or Morning Glory.

2. Gold glitters and California is the Golden State.  What is your
state called?  Missouri is the Show Me State.  The internet says it comes from this speech:
This phrase has several origins. One is popularly ascribed to a speech by Congressman Willard Vandiver in 1899, who declared that "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton, cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I'm from Missouri, and you have got to show me."

3. "All that glitters is not gold' goes the old saying.
 Do you have a favorite saying or biblical verse you will share with us?  I live by this verse.

 .   4.Glittery greeting cards or plain?
 Which is your preference?
Glittery!  I work with a teacher that does not like glitter and I love it.  It is an ongoing joke with us.  I really do enjoy a beautiful glittery card though.


  1. Interesting about Missouri, I always wondered where that came from. Sapphires are so exotic i think and so beautiful! I am with you on glitter!

  2. We chose the same verse! A little glitter goes a long way. When I was a kid, we painted pine cone tips white and then sprinkled glitter on the ends. It was so pretty!

  3. I really enjoyed your answers...not so much about glitter for me, but "bling" lolol. I have several Sapphire pieces I wear, my 15th anniversary ring has 15 sapphires around the whole band with diamonds. My husband couldn't find Aquamarine (my birthstone), so he got the Sapphire instead.

  4. Morning Glories are one of my favorite flowers. They always look so summery and fresh. Oh, I bet you have some fun with glitter at school. We used a lot of glitter in the dementia unit. Some days it looked like a fairy had exploded in there! LOL Have a blessed day, Lori!

  5. I enjoyed your answers today.
    Have a great Tuesday.

  6. Proverbs 3:5-6 is probably my favorite of all the Bible's verses.
    I've always heard Missouri is the 'show me' state, but never it's origin. That's neat!

  7. No glitter for me but it is pretty to see from a distance! I love your scripture choice! Amen! Happy Tuesday, Lori!

  8. Great scripture. Seems every time I come in contact with glitter it finds it's way to my face. lol

  9. Love your Bible verse. Enjoy the rest of your day!

  10. I love glitter, too. But I love sapphires more. Such. A gorgeous stone. You picked one of my favorite verses. Have a glorious rest of your week!
