Pot O' Blog Candy!!

Happy St. Patty' Day!! My last name is Harp and though I certainly am not Irish (German/American!!) and my husband has little if any Irish in him, with a name like Harp, we feel obligated to wear the green. We are under a heavy snow advisory and I am sick so there will be no party for us today to celebrate with my nephew. I am really bummed!!
My blog has passed 20,000 hits though so we must celebrate that. I have a few goodies to give away...some textured cards w/ envies, some of the Hot Hues cards/envies I posted about earlier, MM ribbon brads, Stardust Gelly roll pens, jumbo flowers and a jumbo paper clip.
I will draw one winner Sunday night, 9pm EST. Just leave a comment and tell me your favorite movie. Whenever my DH goes away I sit down to the second half of the A&E 5 hour Pride and Prejudice series. I can't get enough of Colin Firth!! Since I am planning on spending most of my day on the sofa I may need to indulge myself even with hubby around!!
Thanks for all who stop in for a peek into my stampings and doings!!
Blessings to you this day!!

My favorite movie boy, that's hard! Ummm...all I can think of right now is Pretty Woman! I have so many that I have enjoyed!

Yvonne B said...

My favorite movie is one I just saw last week. " Music and Lyrics " was so funny and cute. I didn't know that Hugh Grant could sing!!! Great show for a night out with the girls!

kelly said...

My favorite movie is up close and personal with Michelle Pfeiffer.

Wendy Luse said...

Iloved the movie A Few Good Men. And I also like any good romantic comedy.

Jackie said...

I hope you are feeling better soon! My favorite movie is City of Angels with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage. I could watch it every day!

Lisa Henke said...

My fave movie has to be Dirty Dancing, I can pretty much recite it word for word. One of my favorite lines is "I carried a watermelon" just love the sarcastic undertone she says it with!

Nancy said...

My favourite movie is "Steel Magnolias" I LOVE chick flicks

Natasha said...

Wow! What an amazing assortment of goodies!

Hmm, my favorite movie, well if you go by the one I've actually watched the most and quote in almost all daily life, then it would be Emperor's New Groove. Love it!!!

Dawn Rapsas said...

My favorite movie is 'The Goodbye Girl" with Marcia mason and Richard Dreyfus. When I was in High School I would watch it over and over on rainy days!!

I love movies. I guess one of my all time favs would be "When Harry Met Sally" I just love Meg Ryan!

Melissa said...

My favorite movie is Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. I have watched it so much I tend to quote it in my everyday life! Congrats on the hits - that's awesome!

Jessica (jessrose21) said...

One of my all-time favorite is The Music Man with Shirley Jones and Robert Preston! It's one of those timeless musicals; the singing is great, the acting is good, and the characters are too funny.

Soozie4Him said...

My DH and I have the same favorite movie - "Father of the Bride" - the Steve Martin one. With 3 daughters (two married now), this movie is SO touching and SO hilarious!

I hope you're better soon, Tracy. I'm sick too - I've got bronchitis and a very bad throat infection. Wed and Thurs night I had this awful fever. Thurs night it got up to 103.5 and I thought I was gonna die! I saw the doctor yesterday and got the Z-pack. My fever is now staying under 101! I haven't even been up to stamping - at ALL! Hopefully soon....

DeniseLynn said...

Wow! Oh what a fun way to celebrate ... I'd love to join in. I don't watch movies often and I am a old fashioned girl at heart so I generally like old musicals like My Fair Lady and Sound of Music and Wizard of Oz. I would say a favorite movie that is not a musical would be Fried Green Tomatoes. (hee hee hee! I can't pick just one favorite color either!!)

Dawn Mercedes said...

Favorite Moveie? That's a hard one. If you asked my sister, she could name a bunch of movies. Growing up, it had to be The Princess Bride since my entire family could quote more than our fair share of the lines. I'll have to start watching more movies so I can find a more recent "favorite!"

Lisa C. said...

My favorite movie is Battle Star Galactica

gremhog said...

my old time, all time favorite movie is Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. For a newer film....perhaps While You Were Sleeping or You've Got Mail.

Oh, I know...those are really new. But I don't get to many movies. I love the Harry Potter ones.

Jen said...

Congrats on 20,000
My favorite one I think would have to be "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"

Anonymous said...

I hope your feeling better. One of my favorite movies is The Notebook.

I can't tell you how many times I've watched Pride and Prejudice...Colin is truely McDreamy! Of course then there's Mr. Knightly in Emma! How does one choose? You can't go wrong with Jane Austin!

LSN2 said...

Hmmm...this is a hard one (as I have many favorite movies). I would have to say "The Princess Bride" as I can't tell you how many times that I've watched it. Guess that must mean that I'm a hopeless romantic at heart.

Wow ... my favourite movie ... it's DIRTY DANCING. I've watched over and over so many times since it's release that I can almost recite everyone's lines. I love the dance myself and I get such enjoyment out of watching others dance well. Hmmm ... maybe I'll go back and stamp some now with that movie to keep me company ... again!

Karen said...

I don't watch too many movies, but I love Jim Carrey, so any of his movies (Liar Liar, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber). :) Great blog candy too! :)

Allison said...

You are right...that Pride and Prejudice has had many plays in my house! I also like A Room With a View, the Anne of Green Gables movies from the CBC and anything from the 80s with Molly Ringwald (Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles).

Erica said...

My favorite movie is Cheaper by the Dozen, I loved the old one and I love the new one too. Don't watch that many so you really made me think:)

Janice said...

I loved the movie The Notebook. Thanks for the blog candy!

Karen said...

Ferris Bueller's Day Off I was 17 years old when this movie came out (1986) and it was just perfect for that time in my life. I still get a HUGE kick out of it to this day.

Anonymous said...

Happy St. Patty's Day!! One of my all time favorites is Grease. An alternative (if you don't want a musical) would have to be Notting Hill -- makes me cry every time I see it!!

Hope you are feeling better soon.

SmilynStef said...

Pick just one ... too hard. Recently I enjoyed Little Miss Sunshine ... some other fun movies are Home for the Holidays, Napoleon Dynamite and Raising Arizona.

Y said...

Ohhh I hope you are feeling better soon. Something is definitely going around, lot of people are down!

Hmm...this was surprsingly tough question! I thought I was a movie addict but apparently not! Pride and Predudice is awesome, even the old B&W version. Italian Job is good too...I am waiting for the 2nd. But an abosolutely funny movie was "Hitch" with Will Smith. He is so great!

Thanks for the candy offerings!

Kathy said...

Do I have to pick just one? My favorite funny movie is Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Sean Penn is hilarious in that movie and I love watching it today and laughing at all the 80's high school stereotypes. My favorite "serious" movie is Glory. I love absolutely everything about it and I'm not a huge Civil War buff.

Penny & Lisa said...

One of my all time favorite movies is Dead Poet's Society...I'm totally blanking on the name, but my other one has Ben Affleck, Robin Williams and Matt Damon..oh why can't I think of it. that's going to bother me all night! RATS!

The Cat Fanatic said...

Gotta for the classic Grease! I love to sing along, even if it makes the neighborhood dogs howl!

Peggy said...

I share your love for Colin Firth! Have you seen "The Girl with a Pearl Earring"? My favorite movie is "A Room with a View."
Thanks for a chance at the blog candy!!

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

My fave movie is The Notebook! Of course it helps that Rachel McAdams is from the town I live in!! But I just LOVE the love story between the two main characters, as youngsters and then as an old married couple!! I tear up just thinkin' about it!!!

Jan Scholl said...

My favorite movie is Finian's Rainbow. Fred Astaire, leprechauns, dancing, Glocca Mora. I evennamed my first daughter after a river mentioned in the song-here name is SHannon. Everyone thought I was a bit daft growing up and loving this movie-I think it was an allegory on the civil rights movement as a play and ahead of its time.

Leah said...

Great blog! Funny you ask about faborite movies because I was just thinking about a favorite movie of my sister's & mine - Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken.. perfect chick flick! TFS!

Donna said...

One of my favorite movies is "To Kill a Mockingbird." As far as more recent movies, I really enjoyed "Shall We Dance" a few years ago.

janice said...

City of Angels!

laura j said...

My favorite movie is Memoirs of a Geisha. Thanks for offering the blog candy. Have a great day!

doverdi said...

Awesome blog candy! Sorry to hear that you missed your celebration with your nephew. I hope you didn't get all that snow. I so hate winter and snow. Bring on the Spring! lol My favorite movie would have to be "How to lose a guy in 10 days".

Kristine said...

My favourite movie is Ghost.

Patty said...

Right now my fav. movie is Lake House.

You know, I'm not Irish either, but it's my birthday. That works out if I ever need a party to go to on St. Patty's Day, but not when I try to get friends together, because everyone got places to go.

monika/buzsy said...

Great blog candy! TFS! My latest favorite is "The Lakehouse" with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullocks.

quickcurl said...

Congrats on your hits! I have a ton of favorite movies! If I had to say one, I guess it would be Steel Magnolias. I love movies that can make you laugh and cry. Thanks for sharing with us! Christine

Kathleen said...

Hope you feel better soon! I've been sick a while and so has my DD (5 yrs). It is getting old.

I can't pick just one movie - but my top few are 10 Things I Hate About You, Clueless and Hitch.

Adelina said...

My favorite movie is So I Married An Axe Murderer! My hubby and I watch that when we've had a bad week at work - it's hysterical!

Heather said...

My favorite movie is Sabrina. What a good one. The new version of it.

Heather Stevens

Stamperosity said...

I think it's too hard to pick just one movie that is my favorite, but as of today, the one that comes to mind is The Princess Bride. For me it's the perfect blend of romance, comedy and fantasy. :) Great blog candy!

Julesiana said...

My favorite movie is "Its a Wonderful Life". (An EXTREMELY close second is "Casablanca") What I like about these movies is that our issues are not the MAIN thing, we are each an important part of something that is bigger that any of us.~~Juliana

Congrats on your blogging hits. It must be a wonderful feeling. :-)

Colin Firth all the way!! I love Pride and Prejudice! I also like while you were sleeping!

A Knight's Tale! There's something about the music and Heath Ledger...sigh...

sunshinevickie said...

My favorite all time movie is the Sound of Music.
But here lately it is Pride & Prejudice - watched it over & over!

ikkinlala said...

That's a tough question, as I'm not much of a movie watcher. I'm going to go with "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Susan T said...

My favorite movie of all time has to be Gone with the Wind. That reminds me that I haven't seen it in awhile. :-)

Peggy Maier said...

My favorite of all time is Casablanca, with Humphrey Bogart! If you haven't seen it - try it. It's in black & white, but it is soooo good! Lots of great actors/actresses & of course a great story.
