My First Award!

After the chaotic busy-ness of the morning routine, mainly getting my energetic boys to the school bus on time, how nice to return home and find that I had won a blog award! It's my first, bestowed upon me by Cheryl of Peaceful Blessings who was passing it along.

The purpose of the award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude ("if life hands you lemons, make lemonade") within their life or blog.

Thank you so much, Cheryl! To show my appreciation, I would like to offer my Treasured Blogger award to readers of this post. It is available at the bottom of the right column. Be sure to copy the html so that you get the animation of the smoke coming from the cottage chimney.

Elyse, please forgive me for using the incorrect name in addressing you! I have been trying all morning to catch up on dear bloggers sites and mistakenly put your friend Cheryl's name (which crazily is my name). Again, my apologies.

I found your blog tonight through your comment of "Bake it Pretty."
I have so enjoyed reading your posts and will be back for more. I have just started blogging and hope you can visit me. I will also put your button on my site.

I also love your girly touches in a house of boys - I completely understand, for I live my husband and 3 boys.

I was trying to find a way to email you,but couldn't. So, I'll say Thank you for your sweet comments about my jewelry. They mean sooooo very much to me.

Hi Elyse,

Me again, I forgot to ask you if you noticed the coffee table? I like yours much better, my husband said mine looks like a football field ):
