Happy Photos and an Unexpected Surprise

Rose with Water Droplets
Mom and I have been in blah moods lately and then the last two days I have had a migraine (which sucks a big one!)  We should be happy after the sale we had this weekend and then finding out about Frankfort, which was a boost for our egos!  So, to be more cheerful I thought I would post some of my favorite flower photographs mom and I have taken.  I love flower photographs and I hope you enjoy the following.

Don't know the name, but I love this pic

Another thing that cheered me up was a post on Juls blog. Juls awarded us the Versatile blogger award.  Isn't Juls just the bomb!!!  Thanks so much Juls, you made us smile today!

Here are the rules:
1.  Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2.  Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass the award along to 15 other bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award

Seven things about me
1.  I love dark/fall colors and yellow - which most people don't know and is the color of the siding of my house
2.  I love spending time with my mom - she is my best friend and I would be lost without her
3.  I have five cats (Koshka, Mishka, Chai, Tiesha, and Reville) and mom has four cats (Max, Samantha, Sasha, Lily)
4.  I love making lampwork beads and jewelry and mom loves sawing, filing and sanding the enameled bowls and pendants and I will allow her to enamel every so often - so we make a great team for our business
5.  I miss being in the army a lot and I miss my friends from my time in the army
6.  I love to cook, but I hate doing it.  I am fickle like that :)
7.  I miss living over in Germany - I would like to go back sometime and see Munich as an adult

Now passing on the awards - I could pass on to tons, but I guess I will be good and go by the rules

1. An Artists Year Off
2. Sharon's Garden
3. Silver Parrot
4. A Hot Piece of Glass
5. Painting with Fire
6. Jen Judd Rocks
7. Earthenwood Studio Chronicles
8. My Muse
9. Skye Jewels
10. Copper Diem
11. Sweet Bead Studio
12. La Bella Joya
13. Treasure's Found: Inspiration is Everywhere
14. Sassy Glass Designs
15. Glass Addictions

Like I said I could have added so many more blogs, so enjoy the ones I did list.  I hope this cheers you up as much as it cheered me up.
Have a great weekend!


  1. You totally know that I understand migraines! I hope you feel better soon and don't suffer too much from the "migraine hangover"!

  2. Trying not to! It sucks, especially when mom and I get them at the same time. We are both feeling better today, but still blah moods. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Thank you so much for the blog award! I appreciate it. Pretty flower pictures! Hope you feel better.

  4. Thanks for the award! I'm so flattered!!!

  5. Thanks my friends! It's been a week since I've wandered through my blog land and I'm so exctied!!

  6. I am glad we could bring a little joy to everyone! I hope you were as surprised as mom and I were to receive the award from Juls.

  7. You are so sweet..thank you!! :-)
    I enjoyed getting to know you more through your answers here. :-) Your relationship with your Mother sounds so wonderful, something to truly cherish. I miss my days in Germany too...lived in Wiesbaden in my middle school/high school years!

  8. Cindy, I am glad you enjoyed the answers about me. I lived in Frankfort during my 2nd grade year and Munich from third to 6th grade. I loved Munich and miss it terribly sometimes. What was Wiesbaden like?
