Gifts from and for my Blogging Friends

I am so jazzed to have very recently received some very beautiful awards. All of these awards have journeyed from afar - and I am excited to receive each one and thank my "awarders" and supporters as I happily send them on -- if your blog isn't listed -- grab them anyway -- because I appreciate all of you!

This gorgeous lavender rose (my favorite color) was presented to me by Gisela -- "Mueppi". I have the added pleasure to pass this award on according to the rules as I understand them to be: Send to just three persons decided as follows: two supporters of my blog, and one person newly visiting my blog and who lives in another part of the earth. The recipients of this award should, then, in turn send on in like manner and in a post, link back to your blog. Thanks Gisela -- I hope I got it right.

This one is given to:
1. Julia
2. Carolyn
3. As the farthest away that I can think of:

These two beautiful roses are given to me by Sandra who felt that these two awards should stay together. Sandra, thanks so very much for these.

there is a more complex attachment to these awards. The persons receiving these are asked to tell a few things about themselves.

For the photographic pink rose you are asked to list 5 things you like -- this is more about "love" for me:
1. I love all the creativeness I have discovered through the blogging world -- I used to have to figure all this stuff out on my own.
2. I love the friends I have made through blogging.
3. I love to craft - day and night -- for real or in my head.
4. I love taking pictures of everything -- including food.
5. I love the rain (because after the rain comes a rainbow and loves' promises)

For the Vintage Kreativ Blogger, list 7 things about yourself:
Here they are, interesting or not:
1. I am happily retired (50 years next year).
2. I don't sleep (very much anyway) because I am always thinking about my next project.
3. I am a jill of all trades but a master of none.
4. I've lost 40 pounds since I quit working.
5. Mr. Lucky, a weineramer, is a "special friend" and shares my bed along with my dh.
6. I am a saver of all kinds of "stuff" (thank goodness we have a big house).
7. I am happily retired (oh, did I say that already? -- well, that says it all)

These two awards sent in tandem to the following lovely ladies:
1. Susan
2. Riet
3. Chris
4. Mama Monkey
5. Jane

Heather sent me this adorable award. Thanks so very much Heather!

This one goes to:
1. Marijke
2. Sue
3. Sue (stamping adventures)
4. Linda
5. Saskia

Thank you so much for the kind words and the award. I am so busy getting ready of school. It is taking all I can do just to post a card and link it up. I am so happy that someone is visiting.If I don't get the award up please don't think I didn't appreciate it because I really do.

Martha, thank you so much for thinking of me. I think the thing I love the most about blogging is all the new friends I have made and how each and every blog has something that inspires you. It can be the smallest thing on a card or a project that gives you that oh wow moment and you're glad you visited someones blog that day! Thanks again, you inspire me!
