Allow Me To Introduce Myself!!
I am just a girl…with a blog, a love of
dirt, all things junk, decorating, being creative, having fun, friends,
My given name is Glenda, but many know me as Tootsie.
I am a single mother of three who lives and gardens in Central Alberta
Canada, zone 3. I am a self taught gardener with no formal training, I
just do what works for me. I love to grow the flowers and plants that
make others smile.
I started Tootsie Time
in 2008. It was my birthday gift to myself. I was in the throws of
the WORST time of my life, and I needed an outlet to distract me of the
horrible situation I was struggling to survive in. In my followers I
have found solace, friendship, comfort and so much love and support. I
don’t honestly know if I would have made it through my struggles without
the encouragement of so many wonderful hearts. Those who read, comment
and follow Tootsie Time
are more than just names on the comment bar, and pictures in the friend
connect…they are family. I may never meet many of you all in person,
but I do know your hearts…and I love you all dearly.
It is now
2013 and I am so proud to say that I have come through hell…and have
found myself to be happier than I ever dreamed was possible…I am also so
happy to say that I still love my Tootsie Time…and all of you still mean just as much to me!
It was with Tootsie Time, that I got to share my passion for the things in life that make me…well…me!
have been growing in my greenhouse now for about 11 years and I love
every minute of it. I love to grow all my own annual flowers from seed
each year. I dream of one day having a greenhouse large enough to be
able to make a living, but until that day comes, I am content in my
love to go junkin’ and fix old pieces of furniture, do interior
decorating and all types of yard and garden work. Everything in my yard
has been created by me and I am so very proud to share all my creations
both household and garden related on Tootsie Time.
greenhouse and gardens have gotten my through many a rough time in my
life, and I am sentimental about them both, as every thing I do gets a
little bit of me. I do hope all who come to my gardens both online and
in person leave with a little inspiration, and a smile on their faces.
may not have as much time as other bloggers to play online and visit
everyone of the blogs I so love to peruse…but I do try to visit a few a
week, and I will never stop appreciating those who follow, visit and
comment. I always try to do my level best to share, and visit…
If you are already following Tootsie Time,
I thank you so much! If you are new to following me…Welcome…and either
way, if I am not already following you…leave me a note telling me that
you are not seeing my smiling face in your google friend connect list,
and I will run straight over and return the gesture!
please note…MY google friend connect gadget does not want to work
correctly, so not all of the blogs I follow show up on my sidebar…I go
to my dashboard to see you…it isn’t by design that you are not all on
Well…that’s all about me…if I missed anything…please feel free to ask!
Until Next Time…Happy Following!
