FRIENDS AWARD


Kristen, over at Something about Nothing and Pam at Antique or Not, gave me this pretty little award, so THANKS, Kristen and Pam! Be sure to visit her, and check out her blog, if you haven't already had the chance to get to know her!

Kristen
said the Friends Award is given to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. (Kristen said to omit that self-aggrandizement part - see below for the reason!).

Neither of us knew what that meant, so she googled it and decided to take that part out because it means, "the act of making oneself more powerful, wealthy, etc., esp. in a ruthless way" because she didn't like the "especially in a ruthless way" part! The hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

The award is supposed to be passed onto 8 bloggers. And, since I consider all of you my friends, I'm just going to pass this along to those of you who are kind enough to still stop by and visit on a regular basis, even when my blog posts tend to get boring - in my opinion, true friends are always loyal. Note, that it was hard to find 8 of you because so many of you have already received this award!

You are:

Envoy-ette @ It Could Be Worse!




Darlene @ Darlene's Days




and because I never follow rules, I have a 9th:

Thanks again Kristen and Pam!

Now go forth and propagate those friendships!

Shewl...Sure am glad you explained that word! I was going to google it too! LOL! Thank you so much for the award! I am so humbled and honored! And congrats on your receiving it! I just adore your blog and enjoy my visits here! You certainly deserve it!

I like your Background! "smiles" Great minds think a like! LOL! I'm not a pink person, but I do love pink combined with lime green! Have you seen the new garden flags around the Carolinas, the lime green and pink with zebra accents and monograms. My MIL was telling me about them and I am headed to the local garden shop to get one myself!

Thanks for the link to the Carolina's blog list. I'll go check it now! ~Rhonda :)

Kristen said...

I checked out the Carolina's blog and added the button.
So cool to meet neighboring bloggers :-)

Kristen said...

Thanks for letting me run on your blog
:-)
I have added my running goals (in hopes to keep me inspired) and what it looks like when I run. It's kinda funny looking but I hope to flat line or just go up.
In running I hope to flat line not real life!

Thank you all for your nice comments! :O)

Terri and Bob said...

Congrats on the award!

Now, in regards to my post today... LOVED your comments! I am interested in hearing what color you might suggest. I certainly understand what you are saying about the furniture in the room... after 6 years things seem to just keep going and going. That is why I asked you all... I get so used to seeing it how it is instead of how it could be!

Terri and Bob said...

I posted some more pics of the comforter on the blog.. to help out with colors and such!

Miss Janice said...

Well you are just up to your pearls in awards! Congrats:-)

Terri and Bob said...

I love store matching! Such a neat idea!

The matelasse is a cream color, and the red is more of a berry color. Hope that helps. I LOVE your ideas... and I am glad you are answering questions that others are asking, too... it helps so much. Decorating just isn't in my talent bag, if you know what I mean!

Ms. Tee said...

When I tell my non-blogging friends some of the names of my favorite blogs I always say "Confessions of a 40-something Mama Queen" is my absolutely favorite blog name!

Congratulations on a great site!

Hello Tar, HMMM...
A different post is showing up for you on my blogroll and then I came to read it and it isn't here.
Blogger sure is acting strange lately. I hope I can read it soon.
Hope all is good with you!
