So sweet

Everyone here in blogland is so sweet and kind. I received two awards recently! I am very flattered and appreciative :) First I got a Bella Award from Mona at Wsprsweetly of Cottages.


You can pass this award on to as many people whose blogs you think are really lovely and who are new to you. This helps newcomers also. If you do not have blogs 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. I want to pass this on to everyone LOL. But here it goes…

-Natalie at Just A gal

-Lorna at Lace and Ivy Cottage

-Rosemary at Roses Petite Maison

-Tracy at I Am Me

-Sheila at The Quintessential Magpie

-Cathy at Mille Fleur

-Katherine at Country Romantic

-Donna at An Enchanted Cottage

-Cori at Gingerbead Crumbs and Company

All of you ladies are fabulous and I love visiting your blogs! I changed this award a bit. It called for 15 other blogs and I say put as many as you want.

I was also fortunate to receive the Attitude of Gratitude Award from Lorna at Lace and Ivy Cottage


This award goes to as many other ladies who express the spirit of gratitude in their blogs, as well as my gratitude to them for all their words of encouragement.

The Rules of Accepting and Sharing this Award
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate as many blogs as you want that show an attitude of gratitude.
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award.
5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.

I don’t expect you all to have to follow the rules, I didn’t. LOL I changed them. Again it called for 10 blogs and I say do as many as you want! LOL

-Natalie at Just A gal for always putting on Recipe exchange Thursday

-Rosemary at Roses Petite Maison for being so sweet and generous always working on crafts for others

-Tracy at I Am Me a real nice person and she loves animals like me :)

-Mona at Wsprsweetly of Cottages because she is so amazing I <3 her!

-Cathy at Mille Fleur she is a sweetheart who leaves the nicest comments for me :)

-Susie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage she has the sweetest things to say.


You guys are all great! Happy blogging :) Thanks for being such wonderful people :)

Hi Sweetie!
Thank you so much for the award. You made my day! I was reading more of your blog and I thought I'd comment here about your tea book. Love it, you lucky girl! I love going to tea and throwing parties. For your birthday, why don't you go and treat yourself to a wonderful tea with your friends. Check out It lists all the tea rooms and ranks them. San Diego has quite a few good ones. There's Aubrey Rose and Tea Upon Chatsworth. There's a good one in Temecula called Truffles and Lace Tea Parlor and one of my favorites is Barbara's Victorian Tea House in Rancho Cucamonga. Just a suggestion, but if you do go make sure to post all about it! Bye for now!
