Remember the first blog giveaway I won from Cider Antiques? It was about the same time of the famous fortune cookie. Well the package has arrived in the mail! YAY! Don't ya just love fun mail? It's so nice to get something besides bills or junk mail.... cuz this is LUCK mail!
Here is a closeup of the tatted edging on the collar.
Also in tow was an antique style crocheted doily.
I put it in this tray for a splash of style.
The tray normally sits on my end table,
A lovely crocheted doily with pink rosettes was also in hand. Perhaps I can make a
Vintage style machine lace with lovely ribbon roses and button roses
The lovely tea cup tea towel came also.
I think the white hankie might look nice with a tatted edging applied,
Here's a closeup of the tea cup pocket.
Secondly, Tracy from Pink Purl has a lovely blog and we have had the chance to become better aquainted through our blog comments and emails. She is a real sweetie with a creative heart. You also might enjoy her blog. She has honored me with not just one, but two awards!
The Arte Y Pico award,
an award for bloggers for their creativity, design,
interesting material, and contribution
to the blogging community, regardless of the language.
The site that this award originated from is written in Spanish
so ya got me as to what the rules are.
....and she also awarded me with
The Five Blogs That Make My Day Award.
Thank you, Tracy! That also made my day.
If I have to choose FIVE blogs that make my day the choice is tough as there are so many.
The five that come to mind at the moment are
Winners of the 5 Blogs That Make My Day Award, here's your task:
1) Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.
2) Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3) Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news!
I think awards and tags are fun. If you have been acknowledged by me for a tag or an award and you find it a burden or otherwise makes you uncomfortable it's okay by me if you do not accept it.
Just consider it a compliment from me and consider it OPTIONAL.
HOLY COW, BAT MAN!!! There's a lot going on here lately in this corner of blogger-landia, so whether you look at awards and tags with joy or dread I'm glad you stopped by. Remember that your comments are always welcomed and appreciated.
