A Sweet Award

There are just so many wonderful Gals out there in Blogland. And one of them is Sherry of Eddie Maries Attic, she just awarded me with this award and I am just pleased as punch and veryt HONORED to receive it. Thank you so much Sherry, blessings to you and your sweet family!

Now it is my turn to pass this award to 7 fellow bloggers that I adore..Please know there are so many of you and this was HARD to pick cause you ALL are special to me.

But first, the rules.

1. Please put this logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. You must nominate 7 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.

This is so difficult! I love so many of you and your blogs are amazing!! Okay my choices are:

Diana at Soy Candle Lady
Michelle at Treasure the Moment


I have been a busy gal the past few days. I thought I would share a peek of what I have been brewing up. Painting roses is such a joy and even better when I can find an object for just a $1 and make it look like more!

This was originally a mirror..this will be listed Sunday on my ebay. I think I am going to lighten up the pink a bit tho.
LOVE just says it all. These letters are on my etsy...I am trying something new..I am doing customer orders of these letters..if you are interested in just a single letter, a name or word I can do what you would like, just for you. Be sure to check out my etsy...just click on the top right hand corner to see my offerings.
Everyone must love cupcakes...this is an ornament..I am not finished putting sparklies on it but isn't is just the cutest?


My daughter Michaela, is off in New York, NY on a MISSION TRIP this week with one of the groups from our High School Youth group at our church. This is her with a Middle Schooler on her back at the camp she was at a few weeks ago. I would so appreciate your prayers for her safety and God's working in her life and those they minister too. I LOVE you Michaela...God bless you sweetie!

Thanks for stopping by....Lorena
