She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

I have only been blogging a couple of months now, and in my search for fellow bloggers with the some of the same interests I came across this blog @ Sylvias Vintage Daughter. I just loved her blog and told her so, she has been right there for me at almost every post I have posted with uplifting words, so for that Kathy Thank You. You have inspiried me. Thanks for passing this award on to me..

2. Link to the person/blog that sent you the award.

3. Choose 7 more bloggers to pass the award to.

Here are my 7 loves

1. God, I will always put him first. Without God I can't truly love..
2. My handy man husband for living in my dreams. When I first started my business my dh would say why are you buying that. Now he will say aren't you going to pick another one of those up you might need two. Also for giving up his work shop so it can become mine... Thanks hun!
3. My Children with out them I am void. I have learned more from them than any one person in my life..
