I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me when I got back from several busy weeks away.

Marie from Cottage Homestead had awarded me the Honest Scrap Award

I love Marie's blog so must, she has some of the best recipes that I have ever tried. You must go and see her blog.
Here are the rules of the award.
1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs to give this award to that you feel to be brilliant in contend and design.
2. Show the 7 winners links on your blog and leave a comment informing them that they have been given the "Honest Scrap"
3. List 10 honest things about yourself that people may not know.

Well, I'm pretty boring but here we go on the 1
0 things about me.

1. My favorite color is pink.
2. I would have a house full of girly-girl things like lace, roses, etc. but my husband said he couldn't live in house that was all pink. hehehe
3. I love this area of Virginia, the seasons change so nice here.
4. I'm a Latter-Day Saint (Mormon)
5. I don't have an average LDS family. We only have t
wo children. (one of each)
6. We wanted a bigger family, but due to medical reasons this was not to be.
7. We are big on having a good food storage.
8. I always include my daughter and her family in our numbers, even thou she has her own storage.I know that if anything bad happens they will come to us.
9. I have the odds Christmas wish list. a hand crank
food/wheat mill, a big black cooking pot for making soaps, canning jars and a jelly safe.
10. My son teases me that we are just as odds as my Christmas list. That we eat home-canned fruit off antique china.

The 7 blogs that I picked are ones that I go to time a
nd time again. They along with Marie's blog are blogs to visit.
1. Between Naps on the porch
2. Blueberry Cottage
3.Bunny Rose Cottage
4.Coffee Tea Books and Me
5. Hospitality Lane
6. The Stone House http://makeminegrilled

Thank you for sharing your award!
It was fun to read the unknown things about you. I guess I'll have to think about my list.

I have an interior design site and I am interested in purchasing a link on your website. Your site looks great and I would love to be part of your blogroll. Or, if you prefer we could exchange links.

If this is possible, could you let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link. My site is located at

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.
