Do you like Honey in your Tea?

Or even better...how about a mug with your tea. I think she is a beauty!

Since I was a little girl I have always loved the movie Steel Magnolias. I remember living in RI thinking that one day I would live in a little town in the south and have a historical old house and sit on my front porch and sip on tea, watch the sun go down rocking on a weathered rocking chair while my kids played in the grass....

I love old cottage looking things so when ever I am at a thrift store, antique store or yard sales things pop out that look like that. I found this girl who makes old/used things look really pretty. I love that idea...she calls it Upcycled! A mug that maybe no one wanted and now look at it. Everyone needs something pretty, and Upcycled :)

So here is how to play to win...

Tell me your favorite quote/line in the movie Steel Magnolias!

I will announce the winner Thursday morning!

Have fun with your answers! This will probably make you want to watch it again!


  1. I think it goes something like this " The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize". Oh so many wonderful quotes from Steel Magnolia and this is the only one I can remember....My all time,classic favorite movie too.

  2. Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marching across your face

  3. sooooooo many to choose from!
    ouiser is my favourite character, so i'm going with this one:

    "I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood 40 years!"

  4. too many to choose from.... i'll go with this one since some others took my fav...

    "pink is my signature color"


  5. Ouiser: I am just about at the end of my rope with you.
    Drum: Well, then why don't you tie a noose and slip it 'round your head?

    Can't wait to talk to you about your bees. Love reading the blog. Sounds like life is good.

  6. Okay it has been a long time since I have seen that movie!! I loved it loved it loved it!! I have several favorite quotes and scenes!
    Truvy and Ouiser are my favorites!
    "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion"
    "You are evil and must be destroyed!"
    Now I am gonna have to go rent and watch this movie and do a whole bunch of laugh/crying!!
    Love reading your blog,

  7. Oh, so sorry! Very cool mug, and I do love honey in some teas.
    But ... I have NEVER seen the movie of which you speak.
    And it's still too hot to think about hot tea... cold mint tea would be good though!

  8. "Take a whack of Weezer" "Milin, you are a pig from hell" lol.....

  9. "He's so confused, he doesn't know whether to scratch his watch or wind his butt."

    Dolly AKA Truvy was my favorite character!!

  10. Gosh that is hard to pick! Do I have to pick one?

    I think Ouiser has the best quotes! I love the whole scene, but a line that sticks out that I can quote correctly at 10:51 pm is:

    "I can't get enough grease into my diet"

    I do like this line, however inappropriate:
    Ouiser cuts the end off the armadillo and give it to Drum:
    "Nothing like a good piece of a**" : )
