I read the terms and conditions upon receiving this award and they are simple:

Thank the one whom passed the award to you.
Tell 7 things about you.
Pick 15 bloggers to pass the award onto.

 I received this award from Jo at Secret Garden Cottage and if I had not received this award from her, she would have been one of the 15 other bloggers I would have chosen.  Each day I am surprised by the warmth and encouragement I receive from so many wonderful blogging women I have had the lucky chance to get to know.

Seven things about me:

1.  I have extreme hearing impairmented and I need to wear hearing aids in both ears.. 
2.  I love to be in my gardens, I even love to WEED!
3.  I am a terrible speller.
4.  I love to lay in the sun reading magazines.
5.  I want to open another shop.
6.  I know how to drive a tractor.
7.  I am a terrible procrastinator.

Now for the 15 bloggers to pass this to;
1.   Run, Mother Run
2.   Much To  Do With Nothing
3.   Home & Harmony
4.   Olivia and Me
5.   Cottage State of Mind
6.   Vanilla Haven
7.   Laughing With Angels

9.   Painted Whyte
10. Chair Up
11. Wit Behind the Ears
12. Common Ground
13. Whimages
14.  Kates Place
15.  Shabby Whites

* Please note; I do understand it is end of school year for most, also summer is now upon us and we all have tons to do.  If you can not participate, do not worry about it, just know you are appreciated and please enjoy your well deserved award.

Thank you for visiting me and you too might want to check out a new blogger today.


  1. Thanks so much for passing this award on to me. I feel very humbled to receive it.
    To answer your question re finishing the stapled edge of the chair...I usually use braid (gimp) and hot glue it on but for these chairs I think I will use double piping (welting). This is also attached using hot glue. I haven't made the double piping before so am hoping it turns out okay. Hope this helps :o)

  2. Thank-you! What an honor.

    You deserve an award.:-) And, I love your kitchen dressed for spring!

  3. Thank you for thinking of me. I haven't seen this award before.I'm afraid I've got a few I haven't acted on yet. If you're a procrastinator, which I really have a hard time believing, I am Queen of all procrastinators!

  4. Congratulations on your wonderful and very well deserved award:) It was great to read your list of 7 things and to learn more about you:) Enjoy your award and I hope you have had a lovely start to your week ~ Tina x

  5. Alaina, you are so much fun to get to know. I'm a tractor driver too! I am so glad to meet another 'heavy equipment or slow moving vehicle' operator. It grea to learn more about you. Thank so much for thinking of me and my blog. You are such a sweet friend and I have loved getting to know you.

  6. Hi Alaina,
    You're very much deserving of this award! :)
    It was fun learning the seven things about you. I find it hard to believe you're a procrastinator, though, with how beautiful your home and garden are! ;-)
    Hope you have a wonderful day!
    Hugs ~ Jo
