I am so thrilled to have won both a giveaway and a blog award in the same week! (Actually, the blog award was given a few weeks ago, but I was just recently informed..)

B. Catherine Designs nominated me for this award. I was informed by another blogger that I had been nominated so I went over to the website and fell in love! Her blog is absolutely charming! I am so glad I was able to discover her blog!

Here is the story behind the award:

The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in the PROXIMITY in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that even more friendships are propagated. So, now it's time for me to pass on this award and 'propagate' some friendships!

Now here's for the fun part.. I get to nominate! I am nominating 3 blogs who are truly inspiring and fabulous to read:

Crossroads Cottage
Pawsh Poodle Boutique (Prairee Princess)
Romantique Inspirations

As for the giveaway, darling "Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too " over at The Pawsh Poodle Boutique and Prairee Princess informed me that I had won her giveaway! I am so excited. She is such a sweet and talented woman and I am thrilled to be receiving the "perfect box of goodies" !! (P.S. I already knew I would give her the blog award above before I saw that I had won the giveaway!)

Thanks you girls for making my week that much better!

I have finally started putting my Valentine's Decorations out! Here is a little sneakpeek of the first little bit of the decorating ; )

(my small feather tree...)
(..and my large feather tree! I still have a few more things to hang on it!)

And for my favorite Valentine Decoration...

The dog is so adorable, how could you resist a face like that? I remember in our neighborhood, a basset hound would come on over to visit. My family and I would just love on the dog for quite awhile.
