How lucky am I

Ofelia from My Intended Life has honored me with an award. Boy do I love this. I only wish my arm would reach behind me so I could pat myself on the back. Actually this happened several days ago and I am just now figuring out how to do the rest of the blog. Part of the award is to pass it to other bloggers I enjoy who haven't reached the 100 follower milestone. And of course, I get to talk about myself a little. So I'm passing the award to Lesa at Always summer for waking me up to the beauty of children no matter where they are from. I also love K at Excavating K's Closet for showing me how to be pretty in any circumstances.
Serene at The Elegant Bohemian brings a dose of reality and a lot of class to my life, and Paula at Everyday Radiance has already received the award from Ofelia. However I can't leave her out because her invitation into her life has meant a lot to me.

Ofelia has had a great influence on me and I love sharing her adventures and her fashion.  There are many others who have been with me a lot. Pam of the Bits of Truth, Ariel at Artfully Awear, and the lovely Amber Blue Bird are just a few. This Free Bird has opened my eyes to life in a lot of ways. There are so many great bloggers out there. They have well over 100 followers and deservedly so. They are like a really good cake with lots of Icing and ice cream on the side.

Just to let you know a little more about me I'll admit that next Thursday, July 7, I'll be 65 years old. I'll celebrate with my youngest daughter and son-in-law and my two wonderful grandchildren, Marlee(just turned 4) and Kingston who will be 2 also on the 7th. Am I excited? You bet.

In addition to the terrific Eng family, my oldest daughter, Christy, is a chef and I plan to travel to Jacksonville to see her when the weather cools. Christy is a chef at a cooking school and loves to teach cooking. I likewise love to eat her cooking.

The Carpenters, John, Paula, Emma Rose, and Anabelle life in Georgia. Emma Rose is six years old, a big girl now. Her little sister Anabelle will be 4 this summer and a cuter pair of girls you won't find. You see Ofelia added pics of the wonderful things she has collected. Well I haven't traveled so much but over the next weeks I'll show you pics of my favorite things and in the meantime you'll get these pics of some of my favorite  people.

How lucky am I?

Well Judy, first of all congratulations on the award !
I loved reading how excited you are about your upcoming birthday and getting to see all the people you love :)

BTW, the lampshade - my husband hates it - I made it on an afternoon in which I was totally bored.
The lamp is an old one from my great aunt's house and it was going to be thrown away. The shade was broken but the electric part worked. So I just folded newspaper and hand sewed it ..... i am so glad SOMEONE LIKES IT!
