Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope this Holiday Season it treating you
well and that you all had a nice quiet, peaceful, relaxing weekend with
no stress, mess or fuss. Yeah RIGHT huh!
I think those are hard to come by this time of year.

I recently got 2 awards from 2 very special ladies I have been
remiss in mentioning.

The first award came from Cora at Heartfelt and Homemade. Thank you
Cora! I know it took a while to acknowledge this award and I'm sorry, it
IS appreciated. Cora's blog always has something fun and pretty and
different to see, not to mention lots of yummy recipes!

As to the 10 fun facts I'm supposed to
share about myself...
I've already done that twice and can't think of anything else!

I am also passing this award along to all of you if you wish to play
along. You are all Sugar Dolls in my book!

My second award came by way of a very talented writer/blogger Charity
of Charity Joy Bell. She writes amazing poetry and stories and is
about to have her first book published. For an amazing read go by her
blog sometime to see what she has written. Thank you ever so much Charity!

I am going to pass along this award to
someone who needs a bit of cheer
right now. Martha from Martha's Favorites. She's one of my favorite
blogging ladies and a truly kind woman. You can always find some good bling
over at her place too if you need a quick fix!

Thank you again Cora and Charity and I hope all of you have
a terrific week!
