"Awards & Tagging"....

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Good Morning All, I hope this day finds you all doing well!....In the last few days, I have received two "Brillante Weblog" awards & I have been "tagged"! I am thrilled to pieces! Thank you, thank you!....The rules are with this award, that as soon as you receive it, you in turn give it to 7 other deserving blogs. The "BWA" is given for "brilliant photos & text"!, so needless to say it is such a humbling honor to think people are enjoying what you post!...So in turn, it is my pleasure to pass it on to some of my very favorite "blogging friends"!, which is fairly difficult , since I do have quite a few!
I was given the 1st "BWA" by Cammyk at "FRECKLEDFARM", one of the loveliest blogs ever!!.... you will visit over & over again!...The 2nd was from Rhondi at "ROSE COLORED GLASSES" who's blog is so inviting that you will never want to leave!.... I know that passing this award on to 14 blogs is a little silly, but I'm looking at it a little differently....The blogs I have chosen not only are "brilliantly done", but are ones that I enjoy everyday! They are little "glimpses into lives" & are written by ladies who have become my friends. I encourage you all to take the time to add a bit of beauty to your day & check all these posts out!

Hello!! Congratulations on your very well deserved awards Heidi. thank you so much for passing one of them on to me and the kind, generous words you've posted. i also wanted to thank you for your lovely comments on my last post, I was chuffed (such an English word!!!) to hear that you had mentioned me to your non-blogging friends!!
I love your tag answers and agree with most of them, but have never heard of a lemon drop martini, it does sound good though

Heidi July 18, 2008 at 1:55 AM  

Hello Heidi and congratulations on your award. I will do the tag next week sometime. Hope all is well on your side of the globe? I am busy spending my summer working on finishing off some stitching and quilts and often think of you sewing over there too. :)

Hugs ~
