Marie Antoinette Award

Wow. My first blog AWARD- The Marie-Antoinette, A Real Person, A Real Award. It was bestowed upon me by Leslie on Flowers of Life. Leslie and I have an interesting "meet" story. More about that later.

I'm not really sure why I deserve this award other than I AM REAL and Leslie is a good friend!

So, the rules for winning the award are as follows:
1. Please put the logo on your blog
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs
4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

And my 7 Awards go to:

Now the "interesting meet" story. Some of you may have read my posts while I was on vacation at Virginia Beach this fall. I wrote about a very interesting sand sculpture being made by one woman all alone (I found out later she had a friend with her). After we got back home I ran across a blog that had pictures from Virginia Beach's sand sculpture contest. Yep, you guessed it. It was Leslie. After a few emails back and forth we discovered we had a lot in common and have kept in contact ever since. I don't think I posted a picture of her sculpture but here it is now.

"Virginia is for Cat Lovers"
Sorry I took the picture after everyone walked all over it. I looked much nicer before that. We have possible plans to meet at the Neptune Festival next year.

  6. Bev- Thanks so much for including how we met in the post. It was amazing how that worked out, but then again not really since it was already a part of His plan.

    Thanks for the sweet comments about my art also, I appreciate it!

    Everything happens for a reason-I'm sure of that!

    Blessings Always,

  8. Thank you for the award...I'm hoping to repay in kind, but I'm so overwhelmed with the holiday shows it's not even funny. I hope all is well with you!
