I want to thank Penny at Lavender Hill Studio for giving me the "you make me smile" award. Penny recieved it herself a few days ago and it is easy to see why. She is one of the nicest bloggers out there, with a beautiful blog that is a joy to visit. It is like stepping into her home for a chat:>) Thank you Penny! This award coming from you makes ME smile! The person who started this award had this to say about it:

"The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading their blog. I have met many wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell, and I am grateful everyday for each person that I have had the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something special for the top 10 people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell and the lives they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement. Please grab your badge and wear it (with a smile!) proudly, and pass it on because you inspire and encourage me. Thank you."
I will pass this along to my top ten. There will be some who have already been nominated but that's ok. I absolve them from having to pass it along again, just know that you all make me smile every time you visit and leave me a comment to let me know that you were here:>)

There are so many more of you that I visit each and every day, and you truly do all inspire me and make me laugh and think and get my creativity spinning! Thanks to all of you!

Your warty pumpkins are hysterical. I have lots of green ones this year. Had to make a special stop on the way home from Galena. Now that I see the warty kind, I might like those better =) Thank you for being the kind gal that you are! Blessings... Polly
