I am adding a second post today to thank Marianne who was kind enough to pass this award to me. Thank you so much, Marianne. I was thrilled to say the least. Now if I can do this properly, I'll pass this award along to another blogger, and hopefully make them feel as happy as I did when it came to me. It was a real bright spot in my day! Folks, I went through a lot of blogs trying to pass this award along and follow the rule of less than 200 followers. It was hard! I did my best, and I hope I got it right. There are so many blogs that I visit, with so much awesome talent, this was a tough task to fulfill. Hope you'll check out these creative bloggers.

  3. Hi Mary,
    That was very nice of you to mention my blog as a favorite of yours. As I'm sure you noticed it has been a while since I added anything. Life has gotten very full here lately. Right now there simply isn't time for blogging. I hope to get back at it again soon.
    Thanks for thinking od me, it's appreciated.
