An Award and Giveaway #2!

I got a big surprise a couple of days ago when Melinda at  Alabaster Rose Designs  presented me with a Happy 101 Blogger Award. . What an honor to be passed this award from Melinda. If you are not familiar with Alabaster Rose Designs you must check it out. Not only is her blog full of the most amazing pictures she also creates absolutely gorgeous jewelry !  I love all her jewelry but the soldered glass pendants are so unique and beautiful.

 

 
 
Part of accepting the award is to list 10 things that make me happy.  Wow, that is an easy one! 
  1. Sharing time with my family and friends
  2. Quite time with Hubby
  3. Junk shops, yard sales and flea markets
  4. A really great chocolate dessert
  5. Not gaining weight from the chocolate desserts
  6. When my grandchildren tell me they love me
  7. Traveling to new places
  8. Swimming in the ocean and hiking in the mountains
  9. This blog and all the wonderful friends that visit
  10. Finding the perfect piece for our home at an amazing price
Thank you again Melinda for not only this award but for the sweet comments you have left on my blog and for all your support. Now it is my turn to pass the Happy 101 Blogger Award on to five lovely ladies.

  1. Delores @ Vignette Design   She has the most gorgeous homes and gardens.

Hey Sherry!!! thank you for stopping by my blog!!! I'm new to blogging! They are a ton of coupon blogs out there to help you learn how to save money! It's amazing what you can get for free or almost free! I really love www.hip2save.com !! There is another one I think called becentsable.com or either blogspot.com If you let me know what grocery stores you have around you I would be glad to find a blog that covers the sales for those stores!

Also, please let me know if you decide to go to Hillsville! That place is amazing. They have so many antiques there it is really overwhelming! My dad will be selling there! I know I will be going up probably on Saturday morning!

Love the secret garden heart, that story is one of my favorites, and I have also recently found a 'secret garden' in a nearby town that I enjoy visiting.

Yes, I see the stamped jewelry everywhere too but not so original as this. Well, I might just be limited in my scope of the world, but I do like the jangly pearls over the heart words....:)
