I have been totally humbled by receiving three award from three awesome bloggers! I still find it such a thrill and somewhat of a shock when I actually receive an award from a fellow blogger, and when I see that I have a new follower, well, I am just amazed. I still can't believe that I do or say anything that anyone would be remotely interested it! But sooooo glad you are!

Robin of Alabama Slacker Mama and Jane at Finding Fabulous both nominated me for the Honest Scrap Award. These two blogs are two of my favorites!! Robin makes me laugh...ALOT and Jane never ceases to amaze me with her talent for creating! She has such vision... Please check these two blogs out!

Next, a new blogging friend, Lisa at Recaptured Charm nominated me for the Kreative Blogger award. I discovered Lisa and her wonderful blog and just love it!!!

I am supposed to name 7 and 10 things about me that you don't know....I will "combine" here for the sake of not boring you to death!!

1. I am looking at the big 5-0 in February! I am in denial, big time! Seriously.....not happy about it.....seriously...

2. Every time I hear a siren, I call both of my boys to make sure they are okay.

3. I love cats! (You may have already known that)

4. I am extremely thankful for my husband and my boys.

5. I cannot stand it when "people" leave cabinet doors open!! And I probably shut the pantry door, 20 times a day!

6. I love Christmas, though it is tougher for me since my parents are no longer with me.

7. I am a chronic early bird! Can't stand to be late!

8. I am A FREAK for glitter! I am drawn to things with glitter like a moth to a flame, can't help myself. Seth says if it stands still long enough, I will glitter it! I will throw some glitter on you! I ain't even lyin'

9. I absolutely HATE to mop! I will vacuum all day long, but avoid the mop at all costs.

10. I love blogging and all of the wonderful friends I have made from all over the place!

Now I have to pass these awards along.....

Jane at Mamie Janes is so talented it blows my mind! She made these adorable snowmen out of salt and pepper shakers! They are so stinkin' adorable!! I want to be like her when I grow up!

Miss Mustard Seed just has an awesome blog. The things she can do......unreal gifts this girl has!

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is just the sweetest! She has been a huge source of encouragement to me and always leaves the kindest comments! She has exquisite taste and has great cloche parties!

And finally, Jane at Blondies Journal whom I just adore! She is also a woman with vision and talent and such a sweet heart and spirit.

Please check out these talented women!!

And I would also like to ask you to pray for Ashley at I'm Just Too Jazzed To Sleep who is at M.D. Anderson Hospital right now for stem cell treatment. Ashley has ovarian cancer and is starting a very aggressive treatment. She is a Godly and wonderful Christian woman whom I both admire and aspire to be more like. Please keep her in your heart and prayers....

And truly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for these awards and for taking the time to stop by my little blog! It means so much to me....


  1. Thank you so much for passing on the Kreativ Blogger award to me! You wrote such nice comments...I am flattered!!
    I enjoyed reading the 7 things I didn't know about you....I'll be 50 next year too (June). Maybe we should get together for a party!
    I'm doing all holiday idea posts from now until Christmas....guess what one tutorial will be? That's right.....snowmen. They're super easy to make so get some salt and pepper shakers.
    Thanks again for the award.

  2. Now you are a triple threat! I am so on board with you when it comes to #5 & 6! I couldn't think of a nicer person than you to rack up some trophies for the old shelf!
    I "follow" Ashley's blog as a lurker and prayers will be going up.

  3. Congrats on your new awards! It is amazing to find out that we reach so many with our blogging, isn't it? I'm happy to know you, my friend!
    hugs, Sue

  4. Thank you Lou Cinda, for passing the award to me as well as they other Kreative bloggers. I can't believe we have so much in common. I am tuning....shhhh..50 in February (how weird is that for us??) and I can't stand open doors and cabinets. However, I am late for everything and would rather mop...go figure.

    I will be doing a post tomorrow if I ever get to bed! I have the sniffles.

    P.S. I am the 3rd. How about you?

  19. Hi Lou Cinda, loved hearing the 10 things. I love all your kitty pics on the side bar. Makes me just want to squeeze them all! I'm a mopper AND a vacuumer, but can't stand to dust, go figure!

  22. Congrats on the awards! I have enjoyed your blog - I will be back.


  23. I'm definitely with you on the glitter and the early bird. My roommates used to tease me in college because I would go to bed early and get up early. You can accomplish so much!! And about the cabinet doors...I'm NOT even going to go there. That is the EASIEST thing to do! And it makes everything look so much better! Must be a man thing...

  24. CONGRATULAIONS Lou Cinda! You won my Christmas giveaway! Come look!


    Please email me your address!

  25. Congratulations on the awards - it was nice to find out some things about you too. Prayers for your friend for successful treatment.
