Roses and awards

CC at Lace 'n' Ribbon Roses is a most caring and generous soul. I already knew this, but she has proved it even more. You see, she had a terrible fall at work on Monday morning, and even though in pain, she has managed to sit at her computer and bless ten friends by passing on a blog award she received. And, I am honored to be one of the recipients. Thank you sweet CC for sharing your blessings.

Now, being the homeschooling mom that I am, I had to go to Mr. Webster's dictionary and look up the word "trendy," or more specifically "trend." This is the definition: the general direction or course; drift. Well, I'm not too sure my blog lives up to the first part of the definition. I don't really know if my blog is going in the general direction of other blogs, but the second definition, "drift," certainly applies. I do tend to drift from subject to subject, many times in the same post. So, dear CC, I humbly accept the award and thank you for it.

Here is how I view my blog...

It's just a bud, waiting to find out what it will grow into. It looks around at other blogs and wonders if it will ever be as beautiful and well-developed as those when it matures. It is always asking, "What am I going to be when I grow up?"

And, here is how I view other blogs that I frequent...

My little blog is so inspired by the many full-blown, interesting, beautiful blogs around it. Maybe some day, as the days unfold, just like the petals in a rose, my blog will grow into something of beauty that will bring joy to others.

To keep this award going, I would like to pass the honor on to these very deserving blogs:

Conversational Carmelina
Creative Breathing
Darling Petunia
Decorating My Tin Shack
Happier Than a Pig in Mud
Homemade Quilts by Granny
Living Beautifully
Night Stitcher
Pom Pom's Ponderings

Here is how to keep the award going:

  8. Dear Sherry, Thank you so much for thinking of me to receive your award. I can't tell you how touched I was to see that you consider yourself a bud waiting to bloom. I feel this way about my own blog. It is not at all elegant, and yet it is so me. I love that it is a place to tell my stories and the crafts that they inspire. Again, thank you so very much. Elizabeth

  9. Hi Sherry, congrats on your award and certainly well-deserved. I enjoy visiting your little corner of the world. I feel that my blog is just a little bud too, but that's okay. I continue to be inspired by all the blooms out there. Wishing you a most wonderful day! Blessings, Tammy
