An Award for Me?

I am so excited! I received an award from Marilyn at The Cutest Cottage Lamps. It's the Bella Award.

I was so surprised to receive this award. Thank you, Marilyn, I am honored, and I will pass it on.

So here is the scoop: To the recipients of this award, here is what you do: Please pass this Bella Award on to 15 people who have blogs that are new to you and you think are lovely (15 seems like a lot to me, but, that's the rules!). If you don't know 15 new blogs, it's O.K. to choose a blog that you really love! Also, this award is yours to take and post on your blog side bar if you would like, just put the name of the person giving it to you beneath. So, have fun, enjoy and congratulations on your award!

So here is my list of new to me blogs:

1. Kady - Life on the Edge

2. A Beach Cottage

3. Ramona - A Day in the Life of Ramona

4. Barb - Barb's Good Life

5. Brenda - Country Romance

6. Kim - Shabby Pink and Pretty

7. Kristi - Vintage Window

8. Counting your Blessings

9. Wendy - The Cozy Yellow House

10. Andrea - Vintage Bella Studio

11. Valarie - Glimpse of my World

12. Sassytrash

13. Jacque - The Creative Gardener

14. Sweet Repose

15. Mayra - Life is Bananas

Well, that's quite a long list! They are all new to me, or I have seen them a few times and think their blogs are beautiful! There are lots more that I could add to this list, and some of them would be my friends that I have been watching for a while - their blogs are just as beautiful!

'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Wow...what a surprise...thank you so much Jean. I wish I had more time to explore the blogs like I used to. I've been blogging over a year now and am constantly marveling at the new friends met daily out there in blog-land.

Thank you so much for the Bella Award! This is my first visit to your blog, and I'll be back! I see we share a love for flowers.

I noticed your fire pit. We love ours! My kids and I really enjoy roasting hot dogs and marshmallows for s'mores over it. I also enjoy the lovely flames. Those fire pits are a lot of fun!

Hi Jean,

Thank you so much for thinking of me and including me on your list of 15 new favorite blogs. I am thrilled that you have honored me with this award. I have my next few blog posts already scheduled, but I will definately do a post soon to pass this award on to others. Will give me a little time to make up my list of 15. That seems like quite the task, but I'm sure I won't have any problems once I get started. Your blog is lovely and I will definately come back to visit in the future.

Take care..
