My Lucky Day....

I can't tell you how shocked i was first thing this morning when i checked out my blog.

Not only had i received one award but two!!

What a wonderful surprise. My little blog receiving two more awards.

My first award came from the beautiful Li at creamy white.

Li hails from Alberta a fellow Canadian like myself. Her blog is lovely and a joy to read.

You get a sense of her wonderful kind spirit when you read her blog. I am honoured Li that you

chose me...really it means alot.

My next award came from Melissa at red cranberry cottage

Melissa is also Canadian and lives right by me on Vancouver Island. She's also become

a wonderful friend to me. Having just moved here and no friends or family of

my own she has really helped me out alot.

Her blog is lovely but oh so funny. It is a riot. She is quite the story teller.

Now i am supposed to list seven things about myself...hmm ...well here goes 7

things you don't know about me.

1. I am a compulsive re arranger of furniture since i was a little girl. I drove my parents nuts rearranging my room and now i drive my husband nuts rearranging the entire house!

2. I love animals...period. Whenever someone dies or there is a divorce the first question i always ask is "How are the pets?"

3. I hate working. I cringe every time someone asks when i am getting a "job". I love being a homemaker...which is ironic having been raised by a very strong independent successful business mother. My husband is okay with it so that's all that matters.

4. I love to cook! You will never leave my home hungry... i feed everyone. It's the Italian in me.

I love to cook and entertain.

5. I have a very strong faith. I give God the first part of everyday and lastly before bed.

6. I have a huge fear of snakes. Hate them . When i see one i want to vomit and then i can't even eat. My friend Grace at -sense and simplicity did a "wonderful" post on snakes in Winnipeg and i nearly had heart failure and had to close my eyes as i scrolled down to leave her a comment! Man that was traumatising...but it's okay I've forgiven her!

7. I talk to myself! Yep all the time. It drove my mother crazy and now my husband. But the funny thing is ....my son does it!! I catch him all the time talking to himself!

Like mother like son ...gotta love it!!

Now i am supposed to pass on this award...

My cousin Karen at karen something or other or known as Ow, my anst. My cousin

is funny, witty with a dry sense of humour on the musings of life. She should really

be a writer. Check her out!

My friend Susan at ash tree cottage who is an interior decorator and always gives me

great design advice. Her blog is lovely and sweet . It will take you back in time. Visiting Susan's blog is like visiting an old friend. And you must meet her adorable dog Bentley.

My new friend Becca at Patina Moon. Becca is an artist living in the desert where it's always hot and sunny. Her work is beautiful!! I love visiting Becca especially for her great taste in music. That alone is worth the visit. Plus she's a cat person!! She has two beautiful orange cats.

My fellow Vancouver Island friend Lorrie at fabric paper thread . Lorrie's blog is full of beautiful photos of the island and crafts she's done and wonderful stories i love to read. I find Lorrie's blog interesting and has alot of variety.

Thanks again to my friends Melissa and Li... it meant alot to me!!



  1. Thank you Pamela!! I am honored to receive this award from you!! SNAKES!!! Yikes, scared to death of them. I don't rearrange all that much, but I'm always building something. Well, it's pretty obvious that I love animals. I work, but I would rather not, and trust me, you'll never go hungry at my house. I"ll wrap you up in a quilt and make chicken soup. My faith is strong too and I'm not much without it. I'm so glad to hear that you talk to yourself, because I won't be the only one talking!! Thank you sweety! Give that adorable Sam big hugs from me and Bentley!!

    Lots of love,
    Susan and Bentley

  2. Hi Pamela, Thank you for your lovely comment about me! I'm so happy you like it! Like you, I HATE snakes, and every time I go back home (where my family live) I see one, can you imagine?
    Last time I almost step on one! I was horrified!!!!
    Love to know more about you and how beautifuly you live your life.
    Have a lovely evening,
    Li :-)

  3. Congrats to your awards Pamela!!!!! very well deserved xx

  4. Congrats on your awards Pamela - you and your blog are just so sweet that you deserve your new awards (and more). You made me laugh at your reaction to my snake post - you weren't the only one that nearly had heart failure. You're just lucky I couldn't figure out how to put the mini video clips of the snakes onto the post.

  5. thank you Pam, you're very kind. I now have nothing smartassy to say! Wait--wait...nope, still nothing.
    I do enjoy your blog as well, and have been inspired by your constancy in beauty and aesthetics.

  8. Congrats Pamela!!! And I really enyojed reading a little more about you!!!!


  9. What lovely awards. It is always nice to get to know each other. #2 is my favorite, hillarious. Have a great week, what room are you moving this week?

  10. Congrats on winning the awards!!! I loved reading the 7 things about you, I especially like #2,5,& 7. I too love animals, I should give God more of my time, I sometimes fail at that, but know I need to do better, and I definetly have a fear of snakes, my outside dogs were barking the other night when I was about to go out to feed them, so I looked out the back door to see what was wrong with them, I slamed the door quickly because there was a huge snake at my back door, if my dogs had not been barking I probaly would have steped on top of the snake when I went out to feed the dogs! It gives me chills to think about it!!! Blessings~~~Daphne

  11. Pamela, it is nice to know more about you. Congrats on the awards. You are most deserving. Your blog and your comments always brighten my day. My mom is the same way with snakes-- can't even look at a photo of one without getting queasy. I am a serial re-arranger who loves to cook also. Take care.


I love love reading all your comments!! They mean so much to me...thank you..Pamela xo
