Rondell at gave me the award and asked that i pass it on to six more fellow bloggers and I just love what I see when I visit these six. Now from what I understand if you can you need to pass it along to six more ( If you can). There is a lot of talent out there.

My First Award...

I got my first award yesterday from Rondell at Thank you so mush that was so sweet of you . Ilove visiting your blog, but never thought I would get an award so soon in blogland since i'm so new and still not sure how to do it yet. as I understand I now have to pass the award onto 6 more folks. It will be very hard to pick as I love sooo many of your sites and soooo many of you have already been honored with it. But i will try. I will post them today, after I look around a little more. :)
I also wanted to pass along a few giveaways Tania is giving away all this neat stuff on her blog Fresh From the Farm , go take a peek at her blog. Just go to her blog and post a comment for an entry and if you put it on your blog you get entered again!!!

another weekend come and gone...

Good afternoon my fellow Bloggers. I first have to say Thank You to 3guysagirlandaprimplace for her Spicy Pumpkin Bars recipe. It was GREAT. My mothers birthday is today, (Happy Birthday MOM!!) and I made the bars to take to her house last night and they were the flavor of fall. So, thank you again for the recipe.
I also made DH a Chocolate Zucchini Cake. Also another favorite late summer or fall dessert at our home.

Not much happened at our little country home this weekend. DH had a head cold so he stayed around the house all weekend. My mother and i went to a holiday craft show the next county over, mostly jewlery and food (dip mixes, and cake mixes ) nothing primitive! :( we didn't stay long. I did finish my pillows though.

I also started on the stitchery that Robin, Bird in the Hand Primitives gave free. I did mine on felt though. Looks great so far, just a fwe more stitches and coffee stain and I'll frame it up to hang. I'll post a picture as soon as I'm done it. Well I hope everyone has a great Monday and I'll check in with everyone on Tuesday. Have a great nite.
