The first reason that I'm feeling lucky is that two fellow bloggers whom I've only just been introduced to recently have kindly awarded me a wonderful blog award.
This lovely award was presented to me by both:
Barbara @ http://purplegoatlady.blogspot.com/
Mary @ http://vintagecomfort.blogspot.com/
From the research that Mary did, the words translate to "This Blog is A Dream". I am very honored that both of these kind ladies think so highly of my blog that they felt I was deserving of this award. Thank you Barbara and Mary for sharing this wonderful award with me.
I am supposed to pass this award on to ten other bloggers, but it is so hard for me to choose which ones as all of your blogs are wonderful and I feel guilty over possibly hurting someones feelings by leaving them out, so I am going to pass this award on to all of my regular visitors. If you accept awards on your blog, please accept this one on my behalf and add it to your blogs. I want all of you too feel as blessed as Barbara and Mary have made me feel.
Another thing that has made me feel very lucky this week is that I was chosen as one of the lucky winners of the wonderful giveaway that Debi @ http://lifeinmystudio.blogspot.com/ did in honor of her own birthday. This was my first time ever in winning a blog giveaway and I'm thrilled to bits.
Debi drew my name for this sweet cupcake book, sprinkles and cupcake papers. How cute!! I'll admit I'm no baker, but I'm sure I'll have fun testing out some of the yummy receipies and looking at all of the pictures of cupcakes.
Thank you so much Debi !!!
My fellow bloggers are some of the kindest and most generous people I know....

With that Fall chill in the air, this is the perfect time of year for pulling out all of that pretty china and putting it to good use by brewing up a pot of hot fragrant tea and snacking on some cookies, cakes or scones.
I did just that over the weekend using this beautiful rose teapot. The colors of the roses on this teapot range from a pale pink to a deep red color. What a pretty combination...

I'm also adding MckLinky to my "Tea Things Tuesday" post for the very first time, both to test it out and make sure it's working the way I hope it should, and also to allow anyone else who would like to share something for "Tea Things Tuesday" to easily join in. Please feel free to join us if you wish.

The blog belongs to a lady who lives in Malaysia and the blog is not written in English, but paying a visit just to see all the pink pretties is well worth your time. The pictures speak for themselves.
The blog name is SUESAFIA'S COTTAGE and this is the link:
Here's just a sample of the pink goodness you'll see (I hope she doesn't mind me "borrowing" a picture from her blog to share with you...)
Once you get there, you will find several other Malaysian blog links as well that are also worth paying a visit to as these Malaysian girls sure love their pink and Shabby Chic decor. Goes to show you that us American girls aren't the only ones.
It appears that she has an online shop as well, but I'm guessing she doesn't ship to the USA. Maybe that's a good thing though or I'd probably find myself spending lots of money and all the cute things I see.
See you tomorrow for "Tea Things Tuesday"...

It's way to early for this stuff and it sure is gonna make for a very long winter. All I can say is thank goodness it's not gonna stick around for very long as the skies are already clearing so the sun should melt it within a few hours. Still going to be cold here today though with high temps around 40 degrees. What a lovely way to start out the weekend.
Happy Saturday everyone....

The youngest two are twins who turned 5 years old in April. Hunter and Kylee started kindergarten this year and I just had to share with you a picture that was taken on their first day of school as they were waiting for the school bus to arrive.
They are best buddies and just too cute for words!!!
Because I haven't had much else to do this week while I've been on vacation, I've been playing around on my blog changing some pictures. I'm sure you've already noticed that I changed my blog header photo. I figured it was time for something new to freshen it up a bit. Sorry, no Fall colors here. I love my pastels too much to give them up, even for the change of seasons and the holidays. I also changed my profile picture as well. Just thought I would point that out so you wouldn't think some stranger had overtaken my blog.
Hope you are all having a great week. Enjoy what's left of it..
See you soon.
