A Precious Award!

I received a sweet blog award  from
Ms. Melody Mae.
She was so precious to share this with me!!

Thank you so very much, Ms. Melody-Mae!!

I LOVE receiving awards....although I'm not the best in the world at passing them on.   
But this time....I'm gonna try to abide by the rules!!

I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself.... here goes!!!

1)  I'm a child of God!!!
 2)  I love the color PURPLE!!!

3)  I have a new indulgence....since the weather has turned cold....there's nothing like going to bed at night and Pappy has my side of the electric blanket on and my bed is soooo cozy and warm!!!
 4)  I love all things owlie....I own about 5 purses with owls on them....and have another couple in my head that I want to make.  I also love necklaces with owls!!!
 (Kate Spade design....ONLY $295)

5)  I'm quite fond of the verses of scripture....Jeremiah 29:11-13....just in case you couldn't tell!!!
6)  I love, love, love to crochet!!!
I used to do a lot of cross-stitching....but since my eyesight isn't what it used to be....crocheting has certainly taken it's place.  It is so relaxing to sit and crochet at night!!!

Jessie Barrows Jones (American, 1865-1944) 
 7)  My new food asparagus!!!
I never dreamed that I liked asparagus, until the last few months....and I can't get enough of it!!!
Just cut the toughest part of the stems off....lay separately on a cookie sheet (lined with aluminum foil for easy clean-up) sprinkle with sea salt and pepper....and you can use olive oil, but I use the olive oil spray....bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes....
....oh, is it ever good!!!

  1. LOL I am award free! But I Thank you!!!

    Please don't invite me over for asparagus :-)
    My obsession is Babybel cheese. It has replaced chocolate. I love peeling the red wax and slowly enjoying that sweet litle round of cheese!

    Have wonderful weekend!


  2. I stopped in because of Stacie's Fun Follow Friday and became a GFC follower because I love Jer. 29:11 and your music and . . . your whole site!

    I read that your daughter's a teacher. I've taught English for about 22 years in a Christian high school. On my blog I interview faithful Christians from all walks of life and talk about great Christian books. Stop in sometime! (

  3. Following along from the Friday Folow. Would love it if you could come follow me back! I am in the midst of my Green Holiday Giving event and have TONS of ecofriendly giveaways going on. Have a great weekend!


  4. Thank you so much for thinking of me Deb! I truly appreciate it! :)


  5. Thank you so much Mrs. Deb! I want an electric blanket but I;m afraid I may not make it out of bed in the morning! Ha! I'm in love with owls too! Maybe you can share you owl purse collection you have going on now! :)

  6. Hi, I am following you from the Saturday Stalk blog hop. Please visit my blog and follow me back at

  7. Wow! That is my name there! Thanks so much! I will post tomorrow.
    By the way, you can keep the asparagus. LOL It was one of my MIL's favorites, and I always had to make hollandaise sauce for her at Thanksgiving.

  8. Thanks Deb, for thinking of me for this great award, and I feel very honored! However, I must agree with the others ... you don't have to share your asparagus with me either. LOL

  9. Oh Ms. Deb, thanks for the award, you are a special lady no matter what. Now I am illiterate when it comes to receiving rewards. Had one long time ago tried to get it and I lost it in cyber space some how, LOL. You can invite me over if you have a different veggie, even though mom made some good asparagus one Christmas. Just not one of my favorites!
