I just received my first blog award!! It surprised me and made me so happy! It was the first thing I told everyone at dinner. It came from The Treat Girl. I love her blog and visit each time I see her on my reader. It is like visiting with a friend! She loves her jars and does a Whats In It Wednesday which is so sweet. Take a look!

Hey, how about those YANKEES!!!

So, now I get to share this award with fellow bloggers, which is so nice to be able to do!!!

1.) Thank and post URL to the blog that gave the award.

2.) Pass the award along to 6 brilliantly over the top blogs (blogs you love!) Alert them so they know to receive the award.

I'm nominating these 6 blogs:

1. The White Flower Farmhouse. This beautiful, serene blog posts about a lovely country, antique shop on the North Fork of Long Island and the improvements at her own 100 year old farmhouse (sigh). Can't wait to get out there one day to the shop!
2. Bella Rustica -Just look at the things she makes for her shop and you will see why! She is a very compassionate animal lover and is very involved in lab rescue. If puppies melt your heart, run on over! She is also making a big move right now.
3. Bake at 350- if you go there today, you will see why she is over the top. Have you ever seen such yummies? I told her I would bake my way through her blog-Julia style! Cookies!
4. Beneath My Heart. When I visit Traci, it is like visiting a friend. She does and says the sweetest things. Her craft work is amazing...just see what she does with glue! After she did this, I lie awake at night planning to try it too!
5. Fifi Flowers Her artwork is so beautiful and she is so prolific! Every day something new! She must paint in her sleep! Go see her pretty Paris prints! Reading her blog is a little trip to Paris! We could all use that!
6. Joy Beadworks has a simple and sweet blog that doesn't make me feel inadequate! Nice ideas-clever, pretty jewelry in her shop and fun with her family!
