Sunday 13 March 2011


Happy Sunday everyone, I hope your weekend has been going well and that you are having a good Sunday. I have had a lovely weekend with friends at the Pennyhill Park Hotel for a spa weekend and hen night for Sal who is marrying Richard in April. Ken and I will be travelling out with our good friends Margaret and Bill to Cyrus for the wedding, they are the parents of the groom. We had a fun evening last night with a meal and music and dancing at a club, finally getting into bed at 2.00pm.

I have been given this surprise award from Emma who is The Sparkly Fairy, she blogs some gorgeous soft, vintage work and I am so glad she found me, because I now have found her too.

I accept this award and now must thank the person who gave it to me and and link back to their blog. (Done)
Share 7 things about myself.

Award 7 recently discovered blogs the award and contact them to let them know.

So, Emma, I gratefully accept the award and here are seven things about me:
1. I have two children, both grown up and flown the nest. My son is married and I have 3 gorgeous granddaughters.
2. I have been married for 36 years and 'with' my husband for 40 years - I can't tell you how quickly these years have gone by.
3. I love foreign food whether that be Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican etc.
4. Currently I am listening to the album '21' by Adele, she has the most amazing voice.
5. My most favourite part of the world to be is the west coast of America and we are planning to take the whole family back to LA next summer.
6. I love experimenting with mixed media and the more I do, the more I find myself rooted in this genre of art.
7. I love blogging and have 'met' some wonderful people who have become distance friends, and for all of you who are reading this I thank you for your friendship through the www.

7 recently discovered blogs that I would like to award this to -
Donna at paper crows and dragonflies
Tracey at Running with Scissors
Irene - Eye see crafting
Lou at Crafty Lou's Small World
Brenda at Knitty Treasures
Pam at Crazy Stamper
Judy at Stamped Impressions

Got to get to bed now as I will not want to get up for work in the morning.

Have a good week.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
