An Award

I am so excited to receive this award from one of my newer blogging friends Nancy from Southern Lady . If you don't know her or haven't visited her....go take a look around. She has a beautiful home, shares recipes and yard sale finds and is just a delightful person. Thank you so much Nancy.
For this award I am to list six things that make me happy.
  1. My family and friends
  2. My animals
  3. Coffee with fat free hazelnut creamer
  4. Reading other blogs
  5. Mexican Food
  6. Shopping

I now am supposed to pass this award on to five more people and they are supposed to post on their blog who it came from and pass it along to five other people.

  1. Dawn from Dawn's Daybreak - She always has an uplifting, fun blog and I always enjoy reading what she has to say....she is also a teacher, she knits beautifully and she always shows beautiful pictures each Friday.
  2. Gretchen from Bird Nest Cottage - Gretchen is a very new blogging friend. I just love her blog. She shows her home and shares her life with us and she is just such a great blogging friend to me already always ready with a sweet comment.
  3. Robin from The Robin's Nest - Robin is also a new blogging friend. She shares amazing photos of hummingbirds and also many animals. She also does tutorials on crafts. I just love her blog.
  4. B.J. from BJ's Corner - This is Robin's mom and she paints the most amazing pictures. She also does tutorials....the last one on a moss topiary. She has not been blogging long but she has a great one.
  5. Kitty Scraps from A Bit of Fluff, Quite Messy Really... - She has such a fun blog. She is always showing us her crafts, yard sale or HL sale items (yes, she works at Hobby Lobby how cool is that), she also has a lovely home which she is showing us. She is also going to show us later this year how to properly "fluff" our trees. How cool is that!

Anyway, I love all of these blogs and always enjoy visiting them.....I hope you will visit them too.
And again, thank you Nancy!

Hi Darlene,
I'm still very new at this blog thing. So I have no idea about awards and how they are picked up. It's 6:00am here and I sure Robin would not appreciate me waking her up to help me. She is so good about walking me thu things. So I'll be back!
