Wow ~ A New Award!

Somebody's really reading this stuff?!! LOL! All kidding aside, I was surprisingly tickled to receive the "Brilliante Weblog" Award from Primitive Peddlers

Thank you Cathy of Hazelruthes!

From what I've read, the criteria for receiving this award is that people think you are brilliant in your life and creations. Hmmmm...must be that French Drain project post I did awhile back! My Dad didn't think I was too brilliant when I was calling him and grilling him about the importance of the grade elevations (he's a retired construction superintendent). I had him downright ugly, but wouldn't give up until I was sure I understood completely! Hey, that detail is critical to the success of the project!

The rules for receiving this award are:

1) Put the award logo on your blog.


2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

Wow, this is hard! There are so many awesome blogs out there on the vast world wide web! But here are some of my very favorites:

PhotobucketCedar Hill Rustics

PhotobucketMy KSGP "Sista" ~ Crowing About Primitives

PhotobucketDeena's Story~An inimitable inspiration to every woman!

PhotobucketKim Hardt Originals

PhotobucketMy friend Lara at Dusty Bear

PhotobucketThe Feathered Nest

PhotobucketThe extremely talented Nancy Malay at Vintage Whimsy and Folk Art Originals

I have posted a message on each of their blogs, inviting them to pick up this award with no obligation to pass it on. Lara at Dusty Bear will soon be adding a new little bundle of joy to her family, and Deena has to take care of herself. However, do be sure to check out all of these talented and inspiring ladies' blogs ~ I guarantee you will be entertained and motivated to make the most of life and your God-given talents!

Til next time!



This very same award was bestowed upon me today, July 26th, by my grahics design hero ~ Sara of Graphic Pretties! Wow, I consider that a huge honor! You can visit Sara at her blog here:

Graphic Pretties

Her blog has a link to her website ~ be sure to visit to view all of her wonderful designs! It's really unfortunate that eBay will soon be disallowing javascript and flash in their auction templates ~ Sara is really a master at incorporating smoke, candles flickering, music, moving fonts and other graphic images into her designs.

Thank You, Sara!
