One of my favorite things to do when I have a few minutes, is visit blogs around cyberspace. There are some totally awesome blogs out there with so much creativity and talent, it sometimes blows me away. Carol from Old Glory Cottage has such a cute and cheerful blog and is one of my favorites to visit.

Recently I received this lovely award from Carol -

Boy, was I honored. Carol simply said she enjoys my blog. Wow! I can't tell you how much that means to me. I never thought when I started blogging that I would meet so many nice people like you all! I guess we write what comes out of our hearts, but when someone out there is reading what you have posted and lets you know they enjoy it, well, I'm very happy to hear it.

So now I am supposed to share 7 things about myself and then pass this award on.

1. I love Jane Austen. I have read all of her books several times, own two versions of the Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion and Emma movies.

2. I once caught a 325 lb Tarpon.

3. My High School graduation was held in the Auto Shop because the new school building was not completed. We never attended school in the new building, but were deemed the first graduating class :-(

4. I've done some kind of hand work since I was a teen. Started with embroidery, then sewed my own garments, moved into cross stitch, and finally into what I love, quilting.
5. I LOVE Chick-fil-a tea

6. I've been a homeschooling Mom for 24 years!

7. I never have liked cold weather or snow. Give me spring and summer and I am a happy bug.

Whew, that was harder then I thought it would be. So now I am to pass this award on to others. I know that many bloggers do not accept awards, and I understand that. But I would like to pass this one on, so you can visit these lovely creative blogs.





Have a wonderful weekend!

What a lovely award! I know what you mean about meeting so many lovely people, I'm SO happy I took the plunge and started blogging - I've been a member of a homeschool forum for 15 years [and actually met many of the ladies] but, with my boys getting older, it's time for some "me" time. And blogging really fits that. I LOVE meeting so many fellow creators!

I'm REALLY jealous of that tarpon!!! It was so fun learning more about you!

G'morn, sweetie ~ It is wonderful greeting new friends every day, nearly didn't continue there for awhile with some 'things' that went on, so glad I stayed with this.

It is such fun to learn new things about our friends ... TY for sharing.

Have a beautiful week ~
Hugs, Marydon

Hello, Jocelyn,
I enjoyed getting to know more about you! That must have been an interesting graduation in the auto shop at school! That car you are showing reminds me of my teenage years. Thank you for passing the award on to me. I am honored. You are a beautiful person inside and out! Have a fun filled and blessed weekend! Vicki

I'm happy to learn more about you Jocelyn! I always enjoy my visits to your blog, and you are very deserving of the award.
I love Jane Austen too! Have you been watching PBS for the last few weeks on Sunday night? Tomorrow night is Persuasion. Last Sunday was Northanger Abbey. I could watch nothing but JA movies and be very happy!
Have a great weekend!

I love JA too ... Persuasion is my fave, I have about 8 or 9 DVDs of her books, and I'm thinking about going to my first JA festival. Thanks for the 7 things .. they were so interesting.


Thanks for the award!!! Fun new things about you. WOW...that was some fish!!! I think it would have pulled me overboard!

It was fun learning more about you!! I also enjoy Jane Austen. My high school graduation was cancelled due to tornado warnings!!! I admire you for homeschooling. I don't think my kids could tolerate me as their teacher!!

I am so honored by the award! Thanks bunches. I enjoyed your meme's... we are a lot alike. I hadn't known that you are a homeschooling Mom. I am thinking of doing that too when Baby gets a little older.

Thanks again for the award!
