Cozy Corners and Receiving and Giving Awards!

I was doing some rearranging (now that the tree is gone) and you know, I just realized, you gotta appreciate some of the cozy corners in your home. :) It's like appreciating the small things in life. If you don't pay attention, you will miss something. I'm sure we walk past the small corners of our homes without really paying attention. Here are a few of my corners.
Also, on a side note, thank you for all your comments on my new look! I'm trying to find something I am happy with..I'm getting there. I may need to hire someone to help me! ;)



As promised, I am going to pass some awards out! Before I do that I wanted to thank Vanna, my new found neighbor over at Delusions of Grandeur for the "Proximidade" award! Although I've already received this award I wanted to bring your attention to her blog if you haven't already been there. Vanna has the golden touch in finding exquisite items whether she's shopping or junking or on Craigslist! She has such a beautiful home and her decor is fit for a queen! When you find the time swing on by her place. It is WELL worth looking at! Trust me! :)

Thank you, Vanna! We're going to have together sometime and go shopping. :)

There are two awards I'd like to pass on that I haven't yet. This first award is the "Friends" award. I truly consider everyone a friend in my blog world but I promised I would pass this on to a few special friends!

1. Sandy Michelle over at Sandy's Creations

2. AndreaLeigh over at My Chihuahua Bites

3. Tracey over at At Home on the Ridge

4. Heather over at Family Forever

5. Anya over at Kareltje

Now for my next award. The next award I have to give out is the "One Lovely Blog" award.

1. Tales from an OC Cottage

2. My Petite Maison

3. The Apothecary Shop

4. The House in the Roses

5. Delusions of Grandeur

Some of you may have already received this award but it's worth awarding again from me. :)
I don't know about you but I'm already ready for the weekend. Tomorrow night I'm having dinner with two of my closest friends, Susan and Bryan. I can't wait!
Night everyone!

Try again!... fumbly fingered me!

Well deserved awards, Michelle.

I like your corners :-)

Up until a few minutes ago you would have found dust bunnies in the corners of our house. Frank took care of them :-)

Enjoy your dinner!

Congrats on your awards!! It is so hard to find a "look" that suits one's personality, isn't it? (which is why I opted for plain ol' white background...LOL!)
