~Sweet Award and Sweet Find~

Thank you Priscilla and Betty for this special Friends are both very sweet ladies and dear friends to me and I'll treasure this award. Here is a description of the award........These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon's of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. I am to choose eight friends to share this with.

I'm sending this award on to 8 friends...some have been with me since I began my blog and some are new friends I've made along the way. Actually I think of you all as friends and each one of you deserve this award....but I'll try to stick with the guidelines. So here you go....Andi, Patty, Michelle, Mama Bear, Michelle, Jackie, Nancy, Lib, Pea and Kathleen.


Before I say good-bye let me show you a sweet little find. I haven't been going to the thrift stores but on Wednesday after running errands Goodie Will was calling me. So I decided to make a quick stop. I looked all over and didn't find a thing I wanted, as I was leaving I just happened to glance in on of their display cases and look what I found...
This gorgeous Moonstone candy dish. I love it! I did pay a little more then I usually do for items from the thrift store but way less than what I would have paid at the peddlers faire. Hugs, and a happy weekend to all...Linda

Omigosh, I love your moonstone candy dish, it's gorgeous! Amazing what you can find in a thrift store:-) I've been itching to go to our local thrift stores but it's been too darn cold to go out. I did go out today to buy some groceries and it was a rush to get home before the fresh fruits and veggies froze in the trunk! xoxo
