An award, a give away, and a tag!........
I was so honored and please when I found out I had received this lovely award from not one, but two of my fellow blogger's. Thank you so much Anne at http://peekaboostreet.blogspot.com/ and Kathy at http://katshappyathome.blogspot.com/ It's been a pleasure to know both of you. If you haven't had a change to check out either of these ladies blogs please do. They are all about home and family. I'm sure you will enjoy your visit with the two of them as much as I do....
The following note accompanied this award:
"This award focuses on the friendships that blossom here in blog land. Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say it's authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time, and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this award."
I hope it's OK that I'm breaking the rules here but there are so many more than eight fabulous bloggers on my blog list alone. Therefore, I am bestowing this precious award on all of the regular gals and guys who read my blog and leave comments. You know who your are. Please feel free to pick up this award and make it your own. I enjoy reading each and every one of your blogs and you have all become wonderful friends to me. I would really love for all of you to have this pretty award.....
I can't believe I am saying this but Tuesday is my one year blog anniversary! It's incredible. The time has just flown by. In honor of my one year anniversary I am having a give away. Since Saint Valentine's Day is right around the corner I decided to go with a theme. I am giving away some Valentine candy, a spatula, and several kitchen hand towels. If you are interested in participating in the drawing just let me know in the comment section and leave me an e-mail address so I will be able to reach you. To prevent spam write your e-mail address out like this... Sammy (at) yahoo.(net) The give away will run through January 17. All of the names I receive will be written on a peice of pink paper and placed in a heart shaped bowl. Then on the designated day our grandson Ryan will pull out the winning name. Good luck to all of you who wish to participate.......
