Faded beauty... and a 'Cherry on Top'
My blogging buddy Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife was sweet enough to pass on this award to me. Isn't it cute? I always think it's sweet when someone passes one of these on to me ~ it's just nice to be thought of, whether you play along or not. This one is a little different than most, so I thought I would pass it on.
With the award, you are supposed to thank the person who gave the award to you; post it on your blog; list three things you love about yourself (hmmm...); post a picture you love; and pass the award on to five new people.
I'm skipping the list of loves, but I did post a favorite photo of mine, above. I took this photo earlier this year and I've always called it "Faded Beauty" in my mind. I love how the rose is still beautiful, even though it's past its prime. And that insect seems to like it, too.
I'd like to pass this cute little award on to some new blogs I've discovered, and a couple of old favorites:
Thoughts from Meme's Corner ~ Anyone who starts blogging at 80 deserves a little 'Cherry on Top.' Just a sweet blog.
The Working Home Keeper ~ A new discovery. I like her style and enjoy reading her blog. And she has some great homekeeping ideas.
My Carolina Kitchen ~ I just love reading about Sam's adventures and her recipes are wonderful. This award seems somehow particularly fitting for one of my favorite food blogs.
Martha's Favorites ~ One of the great collectors in blogland. Anyone who has that many tea cups ~ and delights in getting everyone to share theirs ~ is A-OK in my book.
One Size Fits All ~ A new blog on relationships, size, fashion and life in general. I have laughed out loud several times reading it ("Am I supposed to know who Blake Lively is?") and I bet quite a few of you would, too.
I hope all of you enjoy this little bit of blog love. Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend, full of beauty (faded or not)...
