Her Shabbiness at The Shabby Bungalow
Her Shabbiness lives in a lovely little Bungalow that her family has owned for years. She shares mystery vintage items that she has uncovered. A very lovely blog!

Kelly at The Rose Vine Cottage
Kelly's blog is full of the most pretty feminine pictures! Everytime I visit I feel like I should have my cup of tea. Her's is a pretty, happy blog.

Becca at Of Blue Birds and Roses
Becca has been blogging for a long time! Her blog is also very pretty and I love to see her pretty items that she collects.

Myrna at More Than Heirlooms
Myrna is an artist that creates beautiful pieces and shares well written snippits of life. The one about her dad really got me!

Jannet at Jannet's Country Cottage
Jannet is a lovely talented lady who crochets sweets! They are very cute and calorie free. You can order them or just admire her lovely pictures on her pretty blog.

So that's it in a nut shell! I am on the hunt for the prize for the give-away. Is there anything that any one thinks would be a great prize? I'm thinking that it should be a "rose vignette" HHHHMMM .....

Congrats on such a nice award. And Thank you for nominating me! I love your blog and feel quite honored I'm one of five you picked to pass it on to.
I will definitely work on sending on The Smile Award to others.
It might take me a few days because I have a few things this week that is going to keep me from my regular posting. I'll probably post about that later this week too.
Thanks again and have a great Monday!! ;)
