BLOGGERS ROCK ..........

You bloggers really do rock !! I have been given more awards and won a couple more giveaways.

The first giveaway that I recently won was from the talented Aina @ Modern Country Aina is from Norway and, just the very mention of a Scandanavian country means that her blog is going to be beautiful ........... and, it is !! I won a stunning linen heart, filled with lavender with 'Cherish Forever' embroidered on it and made by Aina herself. A visit to her blog is a visit to beauty so please go and say hello.

My other giveaway win was from the lovely Koralee @ Bluebird Notes I think that, most people who read my blog read Koralees. It is happy, colourful and sometimes poignant and all written by the loveliest of women. Koralee is kind and gentle and I find her blog very calming. It will be another one to add to your blogroll but, I would be suprised if it wasn't already there !....... oh, and the giveaway was a Saky Sack. It's a really lovely looking bag that folds down to next to nothing and is always in my bag in case I need know, when you come across a beautiful mercury glass candlestick, a lovely picture frame or a piece of clothing that takes your fancy !....oh, and I suppose grocery shopping as well !! haha. In the unlikely event that you don't know Koralee, pop over and see her.

I received this award from my good friend, Luiza @ Feelings Please go and visit Luiza. She takes the most amazing photographs, really, really is the most kindest and generous person that I have ever 'met', and always has time for you.
I have to pass this on to 5 other bloggers and I am giving it to :

Flaviana @ Maison des Lilas
Federica @ Sweet as a candy
My lovely friend Anne @ Decor Naturel awarded me the 101 Award. I have to write 10 things about me but, I have done this a few times and am running out of interesting things about me !! I will have a think and do this one a little later if that's O.K Anne............ by the way, Anne's blog is not to be missed, either. She writes from the heart and shows us her beautiful garden and home.

The above award was given to me by the lovely and naughty Maggie @ The White Farmhouse
This one involves telling and showing 5 sexy men that tickle my fancy !! That deserves a complete post all of it's own, so watch this space !! I am going to pass this one on and will do that when I do mine.

I was then given the above by the wonderful Lori @ Wildflowers and Rachel @ A little bit vintage. Lori is just the kindest and loveliest and you must have a look at her blog. Full of beautiful images and lovely stories of her day to day life and Rachel has just had a new baby and I mean JUST, and yet she is still making things and blogging !! I don't think that I was half as industrious as Rachel when I had my children !!
..........and last but by no means least, The Versatile Blogger Award from Mara @ Home Shabby Home. Another beautiful blog that you must visit. Mara lives in Italy, my other favourite country, and her blog is full of inspiration and wonderful things.

I was also tagged by Zaira @ Little Emma English Home to write about my 7th follower and will do that ASAP.
I think that , on reading this, you all realise how rubbish I am at doing all that is asked of me, as far as awards go !!!! I will try to do better in the future and I am on my knees begging for forgiveness for being so late in thanking you all.
So.....many, many thanks to all of you. I am flattered and grateful . Every giveaway that I win always has a place in my home and, when I look at them, I think of the person that sent them to me. Each award is humbly accepted and placed on my blog with pride. I will do all of the things asked of me as far as the awards are concerned and pass the awards along soon.
Wishing you all a happy weekend, filled with sunshine.
