UMI & TSURU's Fabulous Giveaway and Some Fabulous Awards!

WOW! Talk about a Blog-a-RAMa!!! This is the fourth blog post of the day! That is a record for me. I have spent most of the day catching up on the latest TIAS. So, what is all the fuss about this giveaway and awards! Well, Let me tell you!

Have you met Umi & Tsuru? This is a blog by a gal that hails from Singapore and is she ever talented in many needle arts! Wait 'til you see the slippers she beaded for her mother. They are pieces of art! By the way, Umi & Tsuru are the names of her cute kitty cats. She is just one person with two names on her blog.
But first I must tell you about......

....her giveaway!


She is giving away
these adorable
tatted dragonfly earrings!
If you would like the chance to win them
and leave a comment.
HURRY! You only have until
September 23, 2008
to sign up.
She will choose a winner on
Sept 24th.
While you're there
check out her beautiful
tatting and needlework
of all kinds.
She is such a sweetie pie
she even awarded me with
the I Love Your Blog Award!
Thank you, Umi & Tsuru!
I love your blog, too!
I will add your name next to
Clyde's and Tattycat's on
my sidebar.
I feel very honored.

As I have already rec'd this
award from fellow tatters
and I did award it to
fellow bloggers (as the rules go);
I am going
to simply enjoy the fact
that someone else loves
my little blog about lace.
To add to the sweetness of
it all I had the honor of having
another award bestowed on
my blog by the ever lovely
She gave me the very cute

Isn't it sweet? Isn't she sweet?
Oh, the sweetness of it all.
Ya know what's even sweeter?
I didn't see any RULES with
this award! LOL!
It's an award created
by an artist named
She says about the award,
"I am giving this award to all the wonderful people that I visit almost every day....they have inspired me and shared their wonderful lives with all of us....
I only ask that you nominate some of the wonderful people you visit each and every day...."
As Bella Sinclair says,
" Spread the love, baby, spread the love."
Okay, the only problem
is I have over ummm....
200+ blogs on
my Google Reader!
They're ALL sweet!
I do not have time to list 200+ blogs
for this award.
What to do....
What to do....
The following award
was given to me by
Miss Victoria of
It's the
Thank you, Victoria!
This one didn't have any
rules posted by it,either...hee hee hee!
But I know, EXACTLY
who I'm going to give it to.
1. Diane from Lace-Lovin' Librarian
because she always leaves these fabulous
comments that let you know she really read
the whole post! LOL!
Ironically, Diane is not available for
comment as she is out of town
meeting her brand new granddaughter!
2. Tattycat from Laura's Tatting Muse
because she always takes a moment to say a sweet "Hello!"
3. Marie Antoinette from Creations by Marie Antoinette.
When this lady comments on my blog
I feel like I just got a big hug!
4. Lace Hearts because I wish
the big ol' pond between us
was a little smaller so I could
teach her to tat in person!
5. Lady Shuttle Maker from
just 'cuz.
Last, but certainly not least...
6. Barb from The French Elements
because she really is a super commenter.
I love it when she comes to visit.
Whether or not you feel you are a super commenter I love your comments, each and everyone of them. They mean a lot to me. I don't know what I would do without my bloggy friends! Thank you so much for visiting my corner of bloggerland and putting up with all my TIAS, giveaway and award nonsense today! Hee hee!
