Awards for me?! Really?!

Hey Friends! Guess What?

Mitzi over at ~Southern Style~  was kind enough to pass on two awards to me today!  What a wonderful surprise for me this morning!  I am so blessed that she honored me with these awards today.

Thank you so much, Mitzi! I felt right at home the first time that I visited you.  It must be that wonderful southern hospitality that this Bayou Girl recognized instantly.

Friends, if you haven't visited Mitzi yet, please go over and see her.  I know you will be blessed. Her photography is beautiful, her words are inspiring and I know you will feel encouraged by the peaceful presence in her "home".

So in the spirit of the awards that have been given to me, here are my instructions as I understand them....

"Thank the person who gave the award to you"......  Thank you again, Mitzi!

"Share up to 10 things about yourself. Short & sweet" ......

 1.      I would love to do a tandem skydive someday.
 2.      I love to cook.
 3.      I enjoy growing houseplants and herbs.
 4.      I love to read - lately it has been blogs & not books.
 5.      I am always ready for a road trip.
 6.      I hate hot weather and love fall and winter.
 7.      I love Air Streams & Craftsman Bungalows.
 8.      My toenails are always painted.
 9.      I am learning to knit.
10.     I love all music & love to sing but can't carry a tune!

"Pass the award along to up to 10 bloggers who you have recently discovered and think are fantastic!"  Okay, here goes!

Now I must contact the bloggers that I've chosen and let them know about the award.  I hope they like it as much as I did.  Enjoy your Sunday afternoon and don't forget to go say "hi" to Mitzi.  You'll be glad you did!  Candace~♥


  1. Awe....(said with the traditional Southern Louisiana slang)...Candace you are much too kind! And can I just say that you have absolutely made my afternoon!!! (((Hugs)))

  2. I want to learn to knit and tandem skydive, too! I adore Craftsmans, and had a neighbor who completely restored an AirStream!

  3. Mitzi, I heard that "awe". In fact, I think I probably said the exact same thing when I saw your post this morning about the award. You made my day too, Girl!(((Hugs)))

    Liz, thanks so much for popping in to see me! It appears we have a few things in common. I look forward to getting to know you! I hope you will come back and visit again. Blessings! Candace~♥

  4. Love the list! #4 is exactly where I've been lately, but I've picked up some hefty books to get through (Jane Austen, anyone?:o) I'm looking forward to reading more, so I followed you! ;o)

  5. Hello. Thank you for following me via FF. I am now following you too. I am sorry it took me so long to return the follow. I went to camp this weekend and don't do much blogging there. Congrats on the awards.

  6. Candace, let me add my congratulations to those you have already received. This is my first visit here so I took some time to read your earlier posts. I really enjoyed my visit and will be back often. I love the tone of your blog. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary


Thanks so much for visiting me today! I hope you have enjoyed your time here and that you will return again. Please leave me a comment to let me know that you have stopped by! I respond to each and every comment by email, if possible, and by returning a visit to your blog. Have a great day!
