THANKS Claudie for creating this prestigious and adorable award! You just make me wanna "kick up my heels" about being one of the first to receive it! Now I have the honor of paying it forward!
Description of the award: Finding the Heart and “Sole” of Friendship. It is the perfect “platform” for recognizing that each of us wears unique qualities of friendship (like a favorite pair of shoes that we wear comfortably and repeatedly). These qualities contribute to the lives of others.
Claudie bestowed this first award she created on the following bloggers as her first recipients:
Deborah from: Picture, Pots, Pens
Betty from: She’s Sew Pretty
CC from: Catherine De Thé Cups
Kim from: Daisy Cottage & Miss Maggie
Dana from: The Stone Rabbit
Deena from: Can I Be Pretty In Pink?
Sheila from: The Quintessential Magpie
Susan from: A Southern Day Dreamer
Susan from: Between Naps on the Porch
All she asked was that we “pass this award on to 3 friends that have made a contribution in your life”. I have spent quite a bit of time to decide who to pass the award along to…..and as you can tell, some of the nicest people above have been her first recipients. So, here are three unique individuals that I'd like to pass the "Finding the Heart and “Sole” of Friendship" award on to:
Kathleen from "Kathleen Ellis Life Style Designs" , Lady Katherine from "Lady Katherine Tea Parlor" and Kathy from "Welcome to Mimi's Garden" .
Trust me fellow bloggers, these ladies have not been selected because we they all share a similar name, (wink)! If you follow any of these ladies blogs, you'll realize that they are very well deserving of this award! CONGRATS, I'm so honored to know each of you in such a special way!

The Premios Dardo Award ( Blog Thinker) from Marty39 from "A Stroll Thru Life" . Marty, this was a great surprise to find on my plate this week! You are my most dedicated friend to comment (probably daily) for the past four weeks. Like yourself, I've found this new community of bloggers to be very warm, open, loving, and kind! I enjoy our visits and look forward to the many days ahead where we learn from one another and grow!
The Premios Dardo Award ( Blog Thinker) from Sheila from "Note Songs" . Thanks Sheila, I so appreciate this kind gesture! Sheila has a trademark that everyone knows when she signs her name... (Be a Sweetie) Her other trademark is always leaving a tune on her post...and she is just the "sweetest" lady that embraces everyone from the time they enter her blog. It's like there is this GLOW and huge smile on the blog the entire time. Sheila, all that know you in Blogland have come to love you...Thanks so much for this award! ;)
The rules are to post it on your blog and pass it on to 10 other deserving bloggers. (See at end of this post)
Thanks to Linda C. @ "Seasons of Life" , she was so kind to nominate me for this award called "Let's Be Friends". I will tell you something I've learned in the past four weeks since taking blogging much more seriously...there are many people in the blogging community that are very caring and precious people, like Linda. I so appreciate all the virtual relationships I'm building and consider it an honor to have had this award shared with me.
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
My nominees to receive "any or all" of the last three awards are the following:
Claudie from "Bubblin Over"
Claudie from "Bubblin Over"

Thanks once again to all the ladies who graced me with these awards these past two weeks and Congratulations to all those I've passed them on to! All my fellow bloggers are worthy of these awards! I so enjoy our visits and comments we pass on to one another!
