First blog award

Hello everyone~~~~what a sunny morning here at the lakehouse!
I'm excited to share with you about my first blog award.
Deborah Lynn from Green Willow Pond left the versatile blogger award at my site.
Thank you Deborah!!!!
We are supposed to share seven things about ourselves, then send the award to seven other new blogs that we are following.
Here goes.....I love the Lord, first and above all.
Living at the lake is a dream come true.
Decorating is a passion of mine.
Gardening is also one of my favorite things to do.
Laurie, from Heaven's Walk, is my very best friend and sister in Christ.
My family...hubby and kids, and grand kids bring me unspeakable joy.
I'm addicted to blogging.
The newer blogs I'm following:
Okay....Blondie's Journal isn't a new blog, but is a very favorite of mine. Jane is a kind and encouraging person. She was one of the first people that started following me.
Of course, Heaven's Walk. Laurie is a very talented lady that has an eye for decorating, and gardening. Her house is awesome!
My Shabby Chateau. Donna finds creative ways to re-purpose things found at yard sales and thrift shops. She can make anything beautiful!!!!
Gone North is a brand, brand new blog. Kathy works with "reclaimed" wool. She is a real sweetie. You have to go over there and see her sweet blog.
Holiday in the Sun. Becky is one of the most encouraging people I've met in the blog world. She lives in Florida, and shares her amazing photos of the beach and shorelines.
La Maison Reid. Nancy is another talented lady that shows her many projects that make her house a "home". She amazes me!
Zany Mayd. Cheryl is a fun lady that shares memories and photos that bring back sweet memories of growing up. So happy to have met her.
Well...that's seven. I could go on and on, but the award calls for just seven.
You really need to visit all of these blogs. They are encouraging, entertaining, informative, and all the bloggers are such a blessing to me.
Thank you Deborah Lynn for the award. You are the best!!! Go over and visit Deborah at Green Willow won't be disappointed.
Enjoy your day!
