Spring is around the corner

Fresh flowers in a crystal bowl brighten the shop on a cold winter's day with the promise that spring is soon to arrive.

I also want to graciously thank Marilyn at Our Victorian Cottage for giving me the 'Kreativ Blogger Award'. I am very honored that she thought of me as her blog is one of my favorites and I consider her a wonderful friend:) As usual, my technological impairments have plagued my ability to add the award to my blogspot! I have been sent step-by-step instructions by so many kind people which I have followed to the letter; however, it still doesn't work:) So in the interest of continuing-here are the rules: I am to list 7 things that I love and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers (I can't say deserving because I feel that all of you are deserving). So here it goes. Seven things that I love:
1. God
2. Family and friends (that includes my blogging buddies:)
3. Dogs, cats, horses, well, basically all animals.
4. Tea
5. Teapots and tea cups
6. Antiques
7. Roses

Ok, now for the hard part-passing this on to 7 bloggers. Since I am unable to get the award link to work at present I will have to forego passing it on for now. Once I get it working I will pass it on to 7 bloggers-sorry for my delay!

In the meantime, I do want to recognize some blogs that I have recently become acquainted with that I just love! They are well worth the visit:

THANK YOU FOR LISTING ME AS ONE OF YOUR NEW FOUND BLOGS. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO READING YOUR ADDITIONS AND YOUR COMMENTS. AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SINK MY TEETH INTO A BOOK FOR YOUR "DICKENS OF A BOOKCLUB" I DID MANAGE TO FUMBLE THROUGH ADDING THAT BADGE TO MY BLOG, BUT DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT AGAIN! MMMMMMMMMMM!

Good Friday morning! I'm a little late with my blog rounds over the last couple of days, as I've been a little under the weather...but it's so good to be back and to read your latest post. I'm so anxious to visit the blogs you've mentioned, as we have such similar taste, so I'm sure I will love them! Thank you so much for your comments on my blog about the baby bedding. I'm so indecisive because I want it to be so perfect! ;-)

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Friday blessings,
Paula
