Sid Dickens Memory Blocks - Weekly Contest @

Once a week I submit a room design with hopes I will win. So far my designs have not gotten enough votes to win but, it has been fun participating. You have to be an active member of the boards to participate and to vote. Any duplicate votes from the same ip address gets the person's room design disqualified. Its honest fun and I wouldn't want to win by cheating. I just wanted to share this site and the contest info so other Sid Dickens collectors can be aware of the generosity the site administrator has to offer by becoming an active member of the boards! Here are some of my room designs that I have submitted into the weekly contests.

Newest Grouping of Sid Dickens

We got the newest tile hung yesterday. I am not positive about the looks of this grouping but, for now the three tiles will stay together. Nexus is the newest tile pictured on top. It's from the fall 2009 Enchantment collection. Storybook is in the center. It came from the 2007 spring Fabel collection. On the bottom is Musica. (Joe's least favorite) This tile came form the Spring 2002 Seduction of Color collection. I love all three tiles but, I am just not crazy about them displayed together. I may do some switching of tiles from my bedroom collection. I need to add my complete bedroom and office displays at some point to my blog. They are actually my favorite groupings but, the pictures I have taken just don't look all that great. I currently have 11 tiles in my office, 20 in my bedroom and 14 in my livingroom.

Sweetest Day 2009

Today I received a gift certificate to my local Sid Dickens retailer from my Lover Joe. While he stayed home watching college football I headed out to Details in Avon to pick out my newest tile. It took me less than a minute to decide which one was coming home with me. I chose T229 Nexus from the newest 2009 Fall Enchantment collection. I really like the saying on the back of this one. "There is a love between the sun and moon, Echoed in shadows; a reflection of our dreams." Since Sweetest Day is known as a day to show affection to the loved ones in your life I think this was a perfect pick to represent Joe & I. He and I are so much like the sun & moon. Opposites in most ways; however, we do share most of the same dreams. I now have 45 tiles displayed in my home but there is always room for more!
