A Wonderful Surprise Today...

After five days of waking up to the agony of even more hog damage in our front yard, I was surprised to turn on my computer first thing this morning to find that I have received my first blogging award! I've received a "Makes My Heart Smile" Blog Award! (Hats and horns, and doing the Happy Dance!)

Linda, of White Linen - Lavender Field and America The Beautiful-1776 blog sites, awarded me this honor through her America The Beautiful site. Linda is a truly gifted blogger, and I enjoy reading her words of inspiration, and viewing her beautiful images whenever I visit her blogs. I highly recommend that you visit both sites (linked through My Favorite Blogs in my left column) and tell her that you've stopped by to visit.

Now, if you know me, you know I'm a rule follower. Here are the rules for this ♥ Award~~~
1. The winner may put the logo on their blog (just right click on the image and copy, then paste to your blog post.)
2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award
3. Nominate 10 blogs
4. Put a link to their blogs
5. Leave a message for your nominees

Ten Blogs That Make Me Smile ~~~in no particular order:
2. Andrea @ Button Floozies
4. Alicia @ Posie Gets Cozy
5. Christine @ A Work In Progress
6. Loreen @ Loreen's Place
7. Amanda @ Soule Mama
8. Maryboys @ Vintage Patina
9. Laura @ 52 Flea
and last, but certainly not least
10. Dawn @ The Feathered Nest

To my readers - In this post, you can click on each blogger's blog title to visit their site. In the future, you can always link to them from My Favorite Blogs to visit them again.

To the seasoned bloggers to whom I am giving this award - You are, in my humble opinion, some of the best bloggers in Blogland, creating wonderful and inspirational sites to visit...and you all bring smiles to my face.

When you visit my blog, please take the blog award button, just copy and paste it to your blog. You deserve it! Pass it on to your friends and please link back to Brynwood Needleworks.

Thanks again, Linda! I'll try to live up to your opinion of me each and every time I add to my site.
