I think this probably started off as a stool but I loved it on top of my dresser. I will fill it up with lovely things!
This gorgeous embroidery was almost given to me and will become a pillow with the addition of some vintage fabric.
Also, I feel very honored to have received this award from Timi ~ A Girl Named Timi!! I am especially thrilled that this award is written in my native portuguese language!!!
It's the "Proximidade" award. This award focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this on-line world (kind of a Six Degrees of Separation sort of thing)."Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its 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 these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Thank you so much Timi!! I always agonize over who to give awards to, as I love and follow so many wonderful blogs... I have decided to award 8 (10) awesome men and women who started their blog last year, just like me, and always inspire me and brighten my day!!! In no particular order, they are:
Teri and Serena at The Farm Chicks
Monica at The White Bench
Linda at Willow Nest Farm
Zita at Mlle Magpie
Lisa at Antiques and More Blog
Carrell at Country Charisma
Joe and Jermonne at Barn House
Mindy at Primitiques 'n Poetry
Make sure to pay them a visit so you can see for yourselves how awesome they are!!
Last Monday Joy, Diane and I went over to Martha for a "scanning party". Actually we just make up any excuses to get together... I wanted to use Martha's scanner (mine is not hooked up properly...), so she told us to come over and made us some delicious lunch!!
As we sat at the table, this is what was awaiting us!
Isn't that the sweetest gift??!! On top of that, she has just bestowed on me this sweet Lemonade Stand Award for great attitude/gratitude!! Thank you so much, sweet friend!!
I thought I would share a few of the pieces I scanned, feel free to copy and use!!!
