You Make Me Smile

Michelle at Vintage Pastiche was sweet enough to name me and 9 others in the You Make Me Smile Award. That right there makes me smile because of everything she has been going through lately, she's still blogging and taking the time to make someone's morning!! You're a true peach Michelle and to quote you ~ MUAH! ~

Now the rules say for me to pass this on to 10 people myself. I say look at my blog roll because I wouldn't have put you there if you didn't make me smile. But in keeping with the fun, let's see... and if you have already been a recipient don't worry about it. No need to pass it on again, just know that you make at least 2 people smile everyday!!

Ok, here goes:
CeCe at All Dolled Up because she's so sincere and her blog is so bright and cheerful. Plus she reminds me of a young Lucille Ball!

Lori at All You Have to Give because her love of the Lord is so inspiring to me. She never fails to show me a different way to look at the same old things. Love that!

Kristen at Christian Crafter because she's teaching me how to knit! She takes such stock in time old traditions regarding crafting, family and worship that you can't help but smile when she talks about them with such passion.

Brenda at Country Romance because she's so cute and so sweet. And she's practically giddy with excitement these days because her son Rian came home safely from the war. Her giddiness just makes you giggle with her.

Emilie at Sugar Plum Sweets because she's always whipping up something and sharing her tips with us. And she's not afraid to use lard in her pie crusts - a true foodie and I love that!!

Kim at Home is Where the Heart Is because she so lovingly talks of her family and her home. And she epitomizes what a true country home-spun home looks like and I am in complete awe.

Jason at Redneck Nerd Boy because he was the first male blogger I found to truly make me howl! He's hilarious and so are his blogs.

Linda at Restyled Home because I love looking at her house! She has such talent and possesses such a keen eye for all things beautiful.

Alexandra at Silver Bell Cottage because I love her look. Her picture
on her blog with those fabulous sunglasses reminds me of a throw back to 40's Hollywood. And when I read her blog I am transported to a simpler and uncomplicated time. And Milo makes me smile too!

Joy at The Joy Of because she is always sharing her "Hope." Hope for friends, for family, for loved ones lost and animals. Hope sharing makes me smile!

Ok, please refer to the above paragraph reminding everyone that my entire blog roll makes me smile. This award could go out to everyone!! But, I think I have chosen people that have not been named recently in the hopes of spreading a few smiles to a few more faces. Have a great Sunday everyone!! God Bless!!

Just finished the baklava this morning, which I'll post later today or tomorrow morn. Thank you, dear one, for the award. You have made my day, in addition to my being able to make baklava that at least looks good. Soon, we'll see if it tastes good. Have a lovely, lovely day. Your posts resonate with me long after I read them.

I missed this one!
I will have to stop by Jesse's blog and say hello.
Also, I wanted to tell you how much I liked your Christmas story. You told it so well...I was curious if you've ever thought about writing?
Anyway, just a thought.
