I have been honored by Smart Mouth Broad for the BELLA AWARD and I am going to be impossible for my family to live with for awhile. Thank you SO much!! She bestowed this award on me because she thinks my blog is lovely. Thank you SO much SMB!

You must pass this award on to 15 people whose blogs you think are really lovely and who are new to you. This helps newcomers also. If you do not have 15 new to you, just choose those you think have lovely blogs. This award is yours to take and post on your side bar with the name of the giver beneath it. Enjoy and congratulations! I think you are all wonderful!

My choices are as follows and this was NOT easy. I lost my first list so I hope I have chosen correctly the second time. None of my links (ho hum) worked! I fooled around and fooled around and lost then entire thing! Pushed the WRONG button..and even lost my blog for awhile! Never mind...on with my choices.

A Cottage By The Crane LakeI know you are man enough to grab this award and dare anyone to SAY ONE WORD! Besides, I KNOW you love cupcakes..oops..I mean teacups full of flowers!

Acorn Cottage

A Girl's Gotta Nest

Crystal Rose Cottage

Frugalious Living

Applestone Cottage

A Stroll Thru Life ...also was one of my choice. Someone else has already bestowed this lovely award on her...but..I still want her on my list.

I tried to pick not just ones that were new to me..but new blogs for the most part.
I think all of these are really nice and am trying to get to know each of them. I consider them LOVELY. I hope you find something special in each of them as I did.
Kind, sweet, talented people..all!

(I lost two comments when I lost my post. I am so sorry. Jane..don't kill me..ok?)
