An Award For ME!

Hi Dear Blogging Buddies~

I received this award from Katherinellen of

Please stop by her blog and say Hi....she is a real sweetie! Thanks Kat!

It is such an honor to recieve and award, but I also have to APOLOGIZE for not posting several other awards I have received from others who have been equally as generous and kind.

Katherinellen was so kind to tell me how to actually POST them to my blog, so now am a little bit more "award" savy. If I haven't posted an award you sent to me, PLEASE accept my apology. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!

It is with great honor that I pass this award (baton!) along to-

Hi holly!
Oh, this award is very well deserved! Kudos!

Dearest Holly...I did the very same thing a few years ago...I tried Cottage style and loved it..lots of WHITE, LACY things around...
With hubby and 16 grandchildren, it just did not work for my family. And, besides all that, along came POTTERY BARN and I fell in love with a lot of their looks.
We now have comfy, leather sofas, a wonderful recliner of hubby, plenty of sturdy tables and chairs so my family is comfortable.
I love so many styles...they are nearly all pretty...we just have to choose the style that we want our family to live with...comfortably !
hugs, bj

Well helloooo woman. I am assuming this is the great and masterful Hollyhock from RMS?? If not excuse me ever so much for crashing your lovely blog. I found this link on BJ's blog. Since I rarely go to RMS anymore it's so very nice to have a way to link to my favorite people there. Take care and tell your hubby to get dressed...I may be stopping by to peek at your master bedroom at any moment!

love, bj
