A Beautiful Award!

Would you just look at what sweet little Shelia from Notesongs gave me? Ain't it pretty? And how wonderful of Shelia to think of me while passing it on to others. It truly makes me melt a little inside each time another blogger leaves me a message that I've made them laugh, or smile, or even cringe. Getting an award is just the whipped cream on top! Thank you Shelia-baby! Love ya girl!

Here are the rules for those who accept this wonderful award:

1.Display logo and link to who gave it.

2.Nominate at least 7 blogs.

3.Add links to those 7 blogs

4.Leave the nominees a message that they received the award

Now, on to who I find very worthy of this award.

My good friend Gail in the UK! I've had so much fun getting to know her and banter back and forth about the differences between British and American terms. Visit her at Squared Off.

Nikki from The Scarlett Rose Garden has me absolutely captivated by her love of all things vintage. From the hairstyles she wears (gorgeous hair, btw) to the clothing she wears on special occasions, it's just fun to read about her life and loves!

Suzanne (better known as Buffie) always keeps me laughing and shaking my head in wonder at the situations she gets herself into. Like me, she's not afraid to show herself at her dumbest moments, which I truly appreciate! Give her a visit at My Left Foot. And yes, you'll even see a picture of her left foot! Bunion and all!

Raquel at Fighting Fabulous Forty is another one of my favorite daily stops. She's been a bit quiet the last few days, but I'm hoping that just means she's having some grand adventure there in beautiful Trinidad.

Kathy, also known as "The Artist" just cracks me up because she's wacky, zany, and quirky. I need to encourage her to use her spell check, but her goofs are part of her allure!

Dot over at Picket's Place is probably sick of receiving awards for her blog, but dammit, the woman deserves every one of them. She's got a heart the size of Texas and wonderful family stories to tell. Her blog brings me back to the basics of loving family and friends, as they are.

This next one is kind of odd, because I don't even know the woman's name. She has NO regular bloggers or friends that visit her... only me. I found her through The Mom Blogs one day when I was bored, and got sucked into the story of her life. I would love for her to meet some new friends so she'll know that Blogland can be a wonderful place! Please visit her at Real Life Mom in Wonderland.

Shelia, thank you again for the award. My blog will wear it proudly!

Until next time, Justine :o )

    It sounds like your pc is blocking my mail as spam? Can you have a look at your settings? Funny how it was fine to start with. Bloody technology!

    Have e-mailed you 2 mails with video links inserted. I have also copied them to myself and they have arrived - AND work.

    I do hope you get them, I'm starting to lose the will to live!

    Def think it's your spam settings that are blocking my mail - my BIL who is a computer geek says so.

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    Congrats on the award! You really deserve it. I would have awarded it to you myself if you already didn't have one, so I chose people who didn't have the award yet. I'll be checking out the people you gave the award to, but have already visited most of them!
