Thank you Jain!

For my first blog award!

I'm so happy Maggie from

awarded it to you ~ and I couldn't agree with her more your blog is so inviting, entertaining and creative, as are

I would also like to pass this award on to some wonderfully delightful bloggers I have become acquainted with during my short blogging adventure.
(In no particular order, I truly appreciate each of them.)

I hope you'll visit their pages, they are such remarkably creative women!

To Andrea ~ Under a Blue Moon
To Robin Sue ~ The Big Red Kitchen
To Marsha ~ Marsha's Garden
To Audrey ~ Food From Books
To Jane ~ Posy
To Clarice ~ Story Book Woods

There are so many more fabulous bloggers whom I follow, and hundreds and hundreds I have yet had the pleasure to discover. Please check my favorites list for more.
(Not surprisingly several have already received this award.)

1. Give it to one or 100 or any number in between ~
it's up to you.
Make sure you link to their site in your post
2. Remember the Purpose of the Award:
To send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

Once again a big thank you to Jain for gifting me this award.
My friend, you're one of a kind, and I deeply treasure your friendship. xo
