A special award from Ann

I received this sweet award today from Ann at Lifeatannsplace . If you haven't visited her yet, hop right over. She is such a sweetheart and always has some interesting tidbits to share. This is the "hugs" award, given for saying the right thing at the right time. This is especially meaningful to me. I try to live by the motto "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all" - credit to Thumper's mom - or was it Flower?. Lucky me, I've yet to see anything here in blogland that doesn't rate something nice to say! There are so many interesting stories, ideas and pictures out there. Some blogs make me think(thank you Muse), some make me smile, some make me spit my coffee out laughing (that would be you Nikki!), but all brighten my day. I truly feel that everyone I have met here deserves this award, so if you are a follower of my blog, or have a blog that I follow, please take this award home and share it! There are three people in particular that I would like to give this award to, none of whom have blogs yet (HINT, HINT!). I met these wonderful ladies on the Micasastyle site and all 3 of them always know exactly what to say.Jeanette, Kathysue and Marty have become so dear to me, as have all of you here in blogland. I appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to reading and hearing from you every day!
And finally, I have to mention Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict. She is the one that prodded me (ever so gently) into taking this plunge, and I'll always be grateful that she did!

congrats on your award--this is sure a cutey one! I sure have enjoyed blogging myself. I'm going to be honest--I "steal" awards when I dont get one--and this is theif worthy--so I have no problem claiming one for myself!

How sweet Kathy! I hope Marty sees this and takes your hint, prodding and out-n-out shoving and starts her own blog too!! I've mentioned it to her as well!! I'd love to see her join us here in blogland!!

Oh Kathy, you so deserve this award, you are always so kind and so honest. Thank you so much for mentioning me ( you too Lynette ). I have so enjoyed all of you here in blogland and Micasa and I agree, if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all. I also believe you really do reap what you sow. Thanks again. I am really, really honored. Hugs, Marty

Hi Kathy, :)
Thanks so much for visiting and your kind comments about our doggies. I appreciate it when people really do understand and I can tell that you do. One day soon we will find the perfect new dog to add to the family.

Congrats on your award! Well deserved.
I hope you don't mind if I become a follower. I've been reading for awhile and enjoy your lovely blog.

Have a wonderful evening.
