Sherry, at Edie Marie's Attic has given me a very sweet award. I happened to be drifting around reading my favorite blogs and there it was before she even had a chance to tell me. What a nice surprise. Thank you so much Sherry.
Now it is my turn to pass this award to 7 fellow bloggers.
But first, the rules:
1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. You must nominate 7 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.
HERE GOES - I NOMINATE:
1. Lynne at Lynne's Little Corner Of The World
2. Willow at Willow's Cottage
3. Tristi at Tristi Pinkston - LDS Author
4. Barbara at The Clark Homestead
5. Shelley at Building A Log Cabin
6. Tracey at Show Me State of Mind
7. Mary at Mary's Writing Nook
There are so many I could nominate, but several are already nominated, and if you are not please consider yourself one of the Brilliant Ones!
(If you read this and didn't know till now that I have nominated you, it is because it is now 11:31 p.m. and I am too TIRED and will let you know in the morning.)
I have found a lovely photography blog - Anna Carson Photography - and there is a project for this month that I am joining even though I am a few weeks late. I will also be on vacation for a week and a half and will not have access to a computer, but this should be fun anyway. I am not the best photographer, but it is fun snapping some pictures with my little digital. The idea is to take a color picture a day, but each picture must contain a black image.
See how high the gas price is here?
Telephone booths aren't seen much anymore around here, and this one looks very tired and neglected.

Most of you who read my blog know that I love log cabins and small cottages. One of my favorite bloggers is Shelley at Building a Log Cabin. She is having a nice giveaway which expresses her love of nature and her new log cabin. Stop by and visit and maybe you will win the prize. I shouldn't spread the word because then I have less of a chance to win, but you will really love her blog and what she is giving away.

Twenty-two years after it was discovered by Henry Hudson on an August evening in 1609, the point of land separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Delaware Bay, now known as Cape Henlopen, was selected by the Dutch as an ideal site to establish a whaling station. It was not an auspicious undertaking. The thirty-two settlers were destroyed by a group of local inhabitants, as a result of a dispute over a Dutch coat of arms the settlers had mounted on their settlements.
In 1682 (?), the land which now comprises the State of Delaware was conveyed to
William Penn by the English Courts at which time the embattled settlement was
named Lewes (loo-iss) in honor of the town in Sussex County, England. But
the travail was not over yet. The town was visited by Captain Kidd and other
pirates as late as 1698.
During the War of 1812, a British frigate bombarded the town. The
casualties were a wounded pig and a dead hen. One of the town buildings still proudly wears an embedded cannonball from the bombardment.

I have found a new blogging friend. She is at Edie Marie's Attic and she is having a lovely give-away (her first). Click here and please stop by and say hello and join in. I found that we have violets, poodles, shabby chic and picket fences in common. Isn't this blogging world terrific?
