I am so excited to receive my very first Award. Firs I want to thank you Dawn so much for deeming worthy of the Award. I feel like I won an Oscar. lol;  really though I am so grateful, It makes me feel  that the thought and love I put in to my blog is worth someone's  time to stop and read my post's.

Dawn you are such a great friend, and not because you gave this to me.{haha}  really my dear friend I will treasure my first Award for a long time.

I  have met so many new and dear friends, my heart is so full of love and kindness for each and everyone of you.

Ok I am done with my speech. I finally made it to Home Depot for my grout, and glue so I can do some mosaic's . My mirror is looking pretty good if I do say so myself. I can't wait to share it with everyone . I have lots of other things to glue my broken dishes to. Speaking of broken, I did do some  smashing today, I felt kind of good. I still have more to break tomorrow. I am going to sew some doll quilts, which I love doing, and some pillows. I have tons of slate that I will do some thing with. So I am getting my inventory going  to set up my store. It is getting kind of exciting  starting out with a new adventure at this time in my life.  But what better time to do now kids at home any more so I said go for it, as did my Honey Bunny. He is so great with encouraging

me with new things, he has such faith in me. I love him for that.

I would share more of my house with you but I am redoing each room, and my family room is only half done. But I will take some  to share. My carpet is this blue color not very pretty, we are going to put in a wood floor when time and money allows.  Oh and in honor of my first Award, I am having a give away Aug. 1st.

I have made a sweet  Bunny she is a country Bunny. I have a picture of her and will post at a later date. I am adding some other goodies with her, which will be known to all at a later date. Don't you just love suspense. All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog, and at the end of the month I will draw the name of the luck person who won.

So too all my dear friends whom I appreciate so much, I hope you all have a most wonderful day, and to Dawn  from  I thank you with all my heart.

God Bless every one.

Oh Alaura! Congratulations on receiving this special award and thank you so much for awarding me! I've received this award before and passed it on then, so I don't think it's fair for me to pass it again. Butt I've added your name to my sidebar showing you gave it to me and I'm thrilled and very touched.
