I just love when great things happen like receiving an award or tags from other bloggers that I admire. Jules over at Arduous Nincompoop (she has a fun blog with great pictures) tagged me with the four things....... tag, Erica over at Tales From The Tracks (I always love her point of view) honored me with the “Just Plain Fun to Read” award, Ria from It's My Party ( and I'll Cry If I Want too) (her blog is funny, witty and always interesting) and Heather at Azure Island Designs (this is one very talented lady whose jewelry you have to see) were both kind enough to award me with the "Sweet Home Award" . I am so grateful and honored that these bloggers that I hold in such high esteem thought to pass these awards and tag onto me. Just when I was having one of those months wondering if I really was doing okay as a blogger these nice and encouraging things happen to keep me going. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Please check out their sites for fun, informative and interesting information-you will be glad that you did.
