Awards Time! Passing them along.....

I feel so honored everyone has been so kind in giving me awards, not just one but two, Blog on fire and Liebster award. Blog on fire came to me from Maureen over at Eclectic Revisited and the rules for accepting this award are: 

List 5 things about yourself and pass the award onto 5 others. Ok you asked for it because you already know so much about me from my blog. I asked mister man to help me think of something but he was absolutely NO HELP! So here we go….
1)      Mister man likes to call me “picky but patient” because I’ll wait for something I want for like forever! Dining room chairs I waited 20 years…seriously, I couldn’t find what I really liked. I just know when something is right when I see it and I don’t mind waiting no matter how long.

2)      I’m a vault when it comes to secrets. You tell me something and it’s a secret I won’t mutter a word to a soul.

3)      I love to teach others about my work and textiles so if you’re up for learning I’m here.

4)      I drive a truck and his name is Bubba and it’s a standard. Driving bores me so I need something that makes me work. Living in the country a truck is invaluable for hauling stuff around our property and it comes in very handy at antique shows too.

5)      I pretty much have the luxury of not knowing what day of the week it is or the time. I sleep when tired, eat when hungry and work pretty much when I’m not hiking with Dylan dog. Half the time I don’t know what day of the week it is but it really doesn’t matter!

So I need to pass this wonderful award along to five people and while everyone is deserving I can only pick five so they are:

Karin at la Pouyette
Andie at Divine Theatre
Sharon at fashion-isha
Desiree at Decor de Provence

Thankfully I don’t have to think of more things to bore you with about myself I just have to pass this award along to five lucky and very deserving people. This lovely award came to me from Allumer Decor

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers.
Liebster is a German word meaning "dear, or valued, from the verb -lieber-to love".

To keep this award going, each recipient must recognize five deserving blogs who have less than two-hundred followers.
here are the rules . .
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog.
2. Choose five new blogs to nominate and let them know by leaving a comment.
3. Request that the chosen blogs pass the Award on to their favorite five.
4. Copy and paste the award on your blog post.

So my picks for this award goes to:

Keri at Ivy Clad

And there we have it ten lucky award recipients and I hope when you have time you'll stop over and give all of these beautiful blogs a look see because I know you'll just love them!

WOW!!! Thanks for the award, Debra!
Looks like I'm going to be busy passing along awards over the next week or so...

Is Bubba the truck in the photo? I'm a bit of a motorhead and have a soft spot in my heart for vintage vehicles.

Debra...thank you so much! I am honored that you passed this lovely award onto me! I also loved learning more about you and got a kick out of "bubba", love your schedule (sounds and picky and patient, well I am half of that, picky but not so patient though I WILL wait for something that I really really want.

I love and know of all the blogs on both lists except two or three and will be sure to visit them.....many thanks!! I will be sure to properly acknowledge this sometime next week. HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!

Debra, You deserve every award out there. Your blog is so thoughtful and engaging and a pleasure to follow. I would love to learn more from you about textiles...and I'm extremely jealous that you are able to live your life without knowing what time or day it is. Makes me wonder about what I'm doing?? Happy New Year, dear friend. Mona
