I have been given

My good friend WSU Laura has given me an award.

I'm so touched and honored.
Thank you!

I would like to turn this award right back around and give it to WSU Laura again. YOU MAKE MY DAY! For getting me started and hooked on blogging, for always commenting on my blog and making me feel good about it, for always smiling and agreeing with me when I'm in one of my head spinning rants. No matter how stupid the rant. Most of all for being my Polly Anna!

I would also like to give this award to a few of my blogging buddies who have helped me in becoming addicted to blogging. You make me check in on your blogs everyday to see what's
going on, get a laugh, or steal a fantastic decorating idea. You have also assisted me in getting NOTHING done on several different occasions. If your blogs weren't good, I would have to be cleaning, weeding, or maybe even doing windows.
I hate doing all of these things.
Thank you!

Annie's For always posting lovely pictures of her antique store that inspire me. For getting the courage to start blogging (your never to old to learn something new) so that she could share her talented eye for style with the rest of the world. Also for just being an all around great person. It has been my pleasure and honor getting to know you over the last couple years.

Tinkers Piggies Laurie Ann for always commenting on my blog, participating in my silly little contests, and being the luckiest thrifty shopper ever!

Swedish Flicka My Delightful Friend Donna for signing up for that ass kickin class and having the courage to stick with it and blog about it! YOU ROCK! For being my co-pilot in many Fact and Artifact Finding Missions, For every once in a while having an opinion and making me laugh with that voiced opinion. After all the years of listening to me tell you over and over my dreams, crazy ideas, and aspirations you finally said to me one day "The only difference between you and them is the execution" Thank you, you inspired me to get off my duff!

A Thing For Roses Lisa for posting all her fabulous finds. Being the first New BFF I ever met in person that reads my blog. You inspire me! It has been so much fun getting to know you.
The Nesting Place You have the best decorating ideas! Since I stumbled on to your blog I have had to check back as often as I can to see what your doing. Love your ideas!

Here are a few of my non blogger friends I would like to give a little shout out to
I know you read often and you send comments through e-mail and phone calls.

Friend M and her husband (yeah I know you read too Leonard) We have been friends since 4th grade, You two are truly the nicest couple I have ever met. You make me laugh, and have been the best of friends to me even when my head wasn't screwed on straight.

Friend S Even with 5 boys she still manges to read and comment on my blog. Another friend since 4th grade, she truly is someone who inspires me to try new things and makes me laugh until my stomach hurts. I have also gotten to know her 5 sisters very well and they always make me feel like I'm part of the crazy family! All you B girls reading...........You make my day!

My New Farm Chicks BFF Kal in Yakima I'm tickled every time you e-mail me with a comment. We met at the Farms Chicks when I asked you to admire my new shopping cart that I had just gotten from A Thing For Roses. You politely did EVERY TIME I saw you that day! Thank you! It's been fun getting to know you.

I would have liked to give this award to every blog I read, and some I just stumble on. There just isn't enough time (and my fingers would get sore from typing) to mention everyone. The Hubs has left me a list today of things he would like done. I guess that means he would like me to actually do something today. ???? Nice try HUBS! I'm trying to still catch up after 10 days of being out of touch. I can't believe I missed A Nesting Place Mac and Cheese contest! I also missed what appears to have been a fantastic antique show in Portland. Dang!

Let someone know they make your day! They will be delighted to hear it.

Have a wonderful day!
