I have found that there are so many lovely ladies out there in Blogland that I wanted to make an award for us all to pass around.

This award doesn't have any real rules to follow other then to pass it on to some of the lovely ladies you have come across.

I would like to give this award to:

Melissa at Her blog is so pretty and she always has so many great ideas to share with all of us.

Donna at . She is full of great tips and lots of fun.

April at . She is so very nice and helpful and soon will be the reason for my blog being one of the pretty ones like you all have.

Laura at . Who loves to spread beauty and joy on her blog.

Sherry at . She has so much talent and is always showing us her beautiful work.

Debbie at . She is so kind and thoughtful and is always ready to lend a hand when needed.

Glenda at . She is such an inspiration to all of us.

Pat at . She makes us dream about places we long to be, food we want to eat and family that is so important.

Debbie Kay at . Who shows us how reach for the stars and makes dreams come true.

Donna at . Who shows us how to have a party everyday in life.

Cindy at . Without her I would have never started to blog. She gives romance a whole new meaning in our homes.

Kathy at . She gives us so many great decorating and crafting ideas. Just when you think she couldn't come up with one more she gives us two more!

Everyone else who is on my list of favorites. I realized I could list you all but it would be way to long of a post. So please know that you are just as special as all those named above. I just ran out of room to list you all by name.

Please copy this award, post it on your blog and be sure to pass it on to all the lovely lady bloggers you know and love.

Oh Joanne,

Your award girl is just lovely. To thank you here is a link to Quill Cottage for nut cups.

There is also the pleated version on page 103 of the Spring 2008 Somerset Life from Andrea at Velvet Strawberries. (Very time consuming~Miss Sandy's went a bit faster~ once I started gathering the crepe on the sewing machine. :)

Both Miss Sandy and I agree that the cups must be for a VERY special event as they are quite time consuming.

Thank you so much for this award! That was so sweet of you! I'll pass it on later this week!

Glenda said...

Oh you little dickens you, I am going to send you a badge, so look in your email for it.

It's still raining here and I love it.........


April said...

First of all, I want to say thank you SO much! What a gorgeous award! *happy* You are the sweetest EVER.

Plus, I want to commend you on your music choice. As soon as I opened your page and it started playing I was actually HAPPY that the music started (versus some other blogs that have loud obnoxious annoying stuff.) It brought a tear to my eye because it reminds me of my wedding day! (We had the rat pack and that type of music at the wedding...)

I am just going to leave your blog page up so I can listen!

Thank you, Joanne, for that sweet award. I'm so touched that you would consider me a lovely lady, and I could give that title right back to you. Thank you!

Hi Joanne!
Thank you for such a sweet award!! I'm so honored that you would think of me. I will pass it on to some other lovely girls but first I'd like to pass it back to YOU! You are one of the loveliest ladies I know!! You are so creative and talented and so kind to share your life with all of us. So please post it with your other awards sweet friend!

Congrats on winning 2 giveaways! WOW! That's wonderful!

And I loved your 4th photo tag, what a terrific story! I didn't know that story, your nephew is quite a guy. I'm so happy for him and Trinity, and so glad they are in your life!!

You wouldn't want to see the back of the dress I created, It's quite a mess! Everything is just pinned temporarily and all the bunching up and raw edges are in the back. So she can only stand against the wall! I thought how lovely she would look in my liv rm window next to the Christmas tree and then thought OOPS cant do that! She's like Jo in Little Women with the patch on the back of her dress she wore to Laurie's Christmas Party!!

Hugs, Sherry
