Kreativ Blogger Award

This a dual-post. Which means I posted it on A Reader's Journal as well as here.

Tamara from Thyme for Tea has awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award. I feel so honored because I don't usually feel very creative. She did say that the hats I crochet entered into her decision to choose me. I didn't think it could be my way with words!

Tamara lives in Australia where she gardens, reads, speaks French, exercises and blogs. Isn't the technoworld great that we can communicate with people from all over the world. I love it!

Now along with the award, there's a meme. I have to complete this and forward the award to others. Here goes:

Congratulations! Your pictures from your trip to Oregon are gorgeous.

My family blog is private so that's probably why you can't get the feed from it. But I post nearly every day. I'm addicted, as Randy tells ms.

I really like the "Hello pillow" one. A lot. I might start using that.

Thanks for the tag, too!
