Thanks Jami from Freckled Laundry!

I was so happy to receive  

I love visiting Jami's blog. Jami creates some beautiful things. Do you remember the faux zinc nightstand and tutorial that Jami shared? Love it. She uses denim, hemp, linen, cotton, rosettes and more to create bibs, laundry bags and other hand made beauties. 

The award was created by Natalie at Blossoming Visions and the rules are as follows:
  1. Link back to the blogger who awarded you and don't forget to thank them!
  2. Pay it forward to 5 deserving bloggers for their expertise on turning their homes, furniture, decor, etc. into masterpieces.
  3. Answer these 5 questions about yourself:
~If you could befriend a famous person, who would it be? and why?
George Strait! I can't help it. My kids will laugh and understand though. Why? His voice, the cowboy, his voice, his ranch, and as Jami said, why not?!

~What sounds make you happy
The laughter of the children I love, wind rustling leaves in the trees, thunderstorms {when I'm at home}, waves at the beach or water bubbling over rocks, and the school bell at the end of the day.

~What is your favorite dessert?
Strawberry cheesecake. Just saying it makes me want some!

~Which holiday do you look forward to the most?
Christmas! The decorating, planning, family time, Masses, preparation, and the two week vacation from school.

~What is your all-time favorite movie?
A Christmas romance, A Holiday to Remember (1995) starring  Randy Travis and Connie Sellecca. I don't think it was a huge hit, but I love the scenery.

I am passing this award on to the following five blogs:
Grace at Sense and Simplicity.
Yvonne at Stone Gable.
Andrea at Rural Revival
Kim at Cheap Chic Home and
Leslie at Goodbye House! Hello Home!

Be sure to stop by and check out their awesome blogs.

Thanks so much, Jami!


  1. You are such a sweetheart, Elizabeth. Thank you!

  2. You are welcome! I don't think I've ever watched A Holiday to Remember. I'll have to add it to the list. Off to peek at your 5 blogs...


  3. Hello there. Congrats on your award for it looks like it was is well deserved. Thanks for following me. I'm off to check out your lucky talented five...

  4. You gave ME an award!? I love it, thank you, you are a darlin'!
    I think it is actually (shhh...don't tell anyone else!) my favorite award because it is for something so very near and dear to my heart.
    I am honored you thought of me--you made me smile BEEG!
    I, too, would rather have cheesecake than anything, too! Chocolate for me, though!
    Blessings to you as you make your home!
    P.S. Is it getting to feel like autumn up in Canada yet?

  5. I'm completely flattered that you would pass the award on to me - especially because I spend way more time blogging about flowers and travel and trees and things than actually getting any real decorating done, but I completely appreciate that you see the potential in me.

  6. I loved learning a little more about you, and congratulations on your well deserved award! And thank you for bringing back the memory of loving the sound of the school bell each day!!

    Kat :)

  7. I love that Christmas movie ~ Clay Trainer is the best. How about that old computer he is working on. love it. I only have it on VHS, hmmm.. think I might have to watch it soon.
