Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!


I received the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award from my dear online friend Roxann. What a sweetheart to think of me! I am so flattered! I cannot wait to send this award to 7 of my crafty friends online. I have made it a daily routine to check on my crafty friends and really try wholeheartedly to stay in touch with all my blogging friends!As Roxann said on her blog I also "can't stand to be out of touch with any of you! I too, wish we all lived within a couple of hours drive so we could get together and craft our little hearts out!"
The key is to give this to 7 Sweet Blogging friends and try to not duplicate the special winners on the list of who awarded this special gift to you. I hope that makes sense. On that note I will tell you the 7 Irresistibly Sweet Blogging friends I have chosen!

    My 1st edible Garden!

     My edible container garden is coming along nicely! I am so tickled! Pictured above you can see!

    This is my lavender plant, and if you notice it is flowering! :D Now I just need to research how I get those lavender seeds to make those adorable little lavender pillows that a friend gave me. My husband took it and sleeps with it in his pillow case. He loves it, but I had to resort to growing my own.

    While watering my plants I discovered not one but two gardening buddies! The "BIG" boy was spooked as much by me as I was by him so he hopped away then I found this little fella.
