My First Blog Award!!

I just got my first blog award from friend Rebecca Jo over at I was so surprised and grateful, lets see if I can do this right.

There are rules, and here they are:

1. Put the award on your blog. (Hopefully its there)

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you (that's below) and say something nice about them. ( So not hard to do!)

3. Name at least 4 fellow bloggers for this award.

4. Add links for the recipients.

5. Leave a comment to let the recipients know they have received the award.

I know, doesn't sound hard, its all that computer stuff (linking) that I have trouble with. Well lets see how this goes.

Rebecca Jo's blog is so wonderful! She is very funny and almost on a daily basis challenges me with even the simplest things. She is a knitter, heavily involved in her church youth group, (which I envy, I don't have much patience with other peoples kids) :) She loves the Lord, and you can tell that just by reading her blog. I love to visit her, and she is so kind and gracious when she leaves comments on my blog. Please go visit her. You won't be sorry, but you might be challenged!! Thanks again Rebecca Jo!!!

Here are the 5 blogger friends that I would like to give this award to:

1. (Leah) She is just plain cute. She is a wonderful knitter, and again, is very gracious when she comments. She is encouraging and thoughtful. Her blog is a very soothing place to visit. And, in case you couldn't tell, she loves giraffes!!

2. (Penny) Penny is actually a seamstress!! Her blog is filled with great projects that inspire me, and I don't sew, so well (sorry bad humor :) Her blog is simply beautiful!! She also often has great recipes to pass along, and she has marvelous tutorials on different techniques. She too is very encouraging, a trait all these particular blogger friends have, by the way!!

3. (Deb) Her blog makes you want to get a cup of tea, and just curl up a stay. She is a knitter, mom and always puts out great recipes, and shares photos, and so many other ideas, you'll always find something new. Her use of vintage items is what drew me to her. Again, her blog is just beautiful!!

4. (Wool Winder) Loves the Lord, is a fabulous knitter, and puts out some great pictures. Also an encourager!! She also has been married as long as I have. Now that would be an award! :) She also shares so much of herself, and her blog is a joy to go to often!! Which, I do!!!!!

5. Last, but certainly not least is friend Tea at . The fact that she is from Tennessee (where my Dad hails from), is what led me to her. Then to find out she likes tomatas (not a spelling error, she'll get it!! ) and sweet tea, boy oh boy, and she knits beautiful things, and now she is sewing like a mad woman. How could you not love her!! She is very funny and her blog is a wonderful place to go. Wish I could really be there, I love Tennessee!!

To all these blogger friends, some are newer than others, but they are wonderful and I look forward to blogging with them for a long time to come!! Thanks again, Rebecca Jo, and I hope all my friends enjoy their much deserved blogging award. Thanks to you for stopping by!!
