Merci Beaucoup for the Awards!

I am so honored that several of my dear friends in Blogland have been so kind as to think of me in the form of some very special awards! I ask their forgiveness for taking so long to post them!

The first is this wonderful Love Blog's "The Spreader of Love" award from Riet at Quiltin' n Stitching lady. If you have not been to Riet's blog, you have missed a real treat! She is a very talented lady with a heart of gold! You will be amazed by her creativity.

I must say that I am in reality the recipient of love, because I have never met a more wonderful group of ladies than we have here in Blogland!
The only rule for this award is to pass it along to five people and spread the love!


The next award is from Christine at Christine's Home and Travel Adventures.
Christine is a friend from Rate My Space and from MicasaStyle whose blog you will not want to miss! She has a gorgeous home and has a special post every Saturday with fabulous photos of her world travels!

The rules of this award are:
1) Accept the award and post it on your blog along with the name of the person who gave it to you as well as a link back to their blog.
2) Pass the award on to 5 blogs worthy of the award.
3) Be sure to notify the recipient that you have left them an award!


This next award is a Sisterhood Award from Ann at Life at Ann's Place.
If you have not visited Ann's blog, you need to rush right over there right now! You will be met by the kindest, sweetest and most selfless lady in Blogland. She is always thinking of others! She'll take you in and treat you like she's known you all her life!

Here are the rules for the Sisterhood Award recipients: Put the logo on your blog or post. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude! Be sure to link to your nominees within your post. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

The final award is the Lemonade Award from two very special people:

Michelle (momovthree) at From House to Home
Michelle is lovingly renovating her home and we have the pleasure of following her through the process step by step. You will be amazed at what she has accomplished thus far in her lovely home! She is a bundle of energy!

Kristen at Kristen's Creations
Kristen is another friend from Rate My Space who is without doubt one of the most creative people I have ever had the pleasure to know! You will enjoy visiting her lovely home and also getting a peek at what she has in store for you at her online shop!
