Awards - Thank You!!

Good Morning! I got two awards - my very first awards ever and I am so excited and appreciative of them both. I apologize that I took so long to post these fabulous awards!

First, is the Fabulous Finds award given to me by Olive Rue. She is a photographer with a wonderful blog. Go visit her to see lots of beautiful photos, a fabulous corkboard that she made out of a vintage frame as well as lots of photos of beautiful rooms and decor. Oh!! and she's having a Valentines day giveaway! Go visit her right away!!

The award was created by Olive Rue and it is passed along to "all you insanely talented, dumpster-diving, curb-swiping, flea market finding, thrift store tiara wearing, self proclamied junk shop queens out there. How's that for a title???" ~Olive Rue

I am to pass it along to 8 others...so...this award is going to:

Savvy City Farmer

The Apothecary Shop

Decor To Adore

Kathy's Cottage

The Painted Garden

Whispering Pines Antiques

Reese and Marie

Grits and Glamour

I got another award from Reese and Marie!! She has a beautiful blog too that I love to visit often. She is doing some painting in her dining room and just got a great table from her dad. Chairs are being upholstered and will arrive soon. They sound fabulous! Go visit her, you will love it!! Thank you for my award!!
Here is the award and what it's about..."This Blog invests and believes the Proximity- nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming...these kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self- aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!" "What you have to do...Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

This award is passed along to:

Between Naps On the Porch

Kathleen Ellis

Olive Rue

Our Scented Cottage

Parisienne Farmgirl

Lynne's Gifts From the Heart

A Cottage To Me

Aunt Amelia's Attic

A great big thank you to Olive Rue and Reese & Marie. Both of you ladies have made my day and I thank you!!

Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding cake."

Hi Kathleen,

Thank you for passing on the Fabulous Finds Award to me. I am honored that you thought of me. This is my first blog award and I have been so busy "repurposing" some of my fabulous finds that I just now had a few minutes to read my e-mails and visit your blog.

I will blog about it and show some of my "fabulous finds" on my blog this week.

Have a lovely week.
