Some Blog Lovin!

This week has been kind of crazy here over at Emerald Cove and truth be told I am feeling like I lost my mojo!

Usually every year about this time the winter doldrums sink in and I feel

I need sunshine, flip flops and the beach!! Well, I have the beach I would just like it thawed out! :)

Anyway, one thing I love about blogging is all the wonderful friends that I meet and all the love that is shared throughout.

Last week I was so humbled when I received an award from these wonderful friends:

Linda at SeaSide Style

I want to say


from the bottom of my heart!
You have touched me and warmed up soul
when I needed it during these cold and gray Michigan winters!

I am supposed to say 7 things about myself and then pass the award on.
Not to be a party pooper, but I posted 15 things about myself here and if you would like
you can go see what I am all about :)

What I would like to do is just mention a couple things about these wonderful ladies.
I just met them and I am having so much fun reading their blogs and seeing all their wonderful inspirations.

Anita is such a beautiful soul.
If you have not seen her blog it is a must.
She is such an inspiration with her writings and images that come from her heart.
She is so talented in many areas, she play the harp, which I would love to hear one day, and conjures up imaginations in the hearts and minds of the little ones!
I am so happy to have met you Anita and thank you so much for brightening up my life!

Cat is such a sweet and inspirational friend.
(If you followed her when she was Writing Out Loud, which thanks to a hacker, deleted her entire blog, you can pick up where you left off with Tattered Rebel)
Her blog is full of life and color and images that make me smile from day to day!
Her honesty is so refreshing and her creativity is endless;
you have to visit her
Thank you Cat, I look forward to getting to know you more in the new year!

Linda had me a Sea!
Her style and personality radiate like the sun and it feels like a little vacation when
I visit her wonderful blog!
Seeing dolphins on a daily basis?
She is blessed with a home by the sea and I feel her love for her home, family and sea through her posts!!

So again my wonderful bloggy friends,


I have a hard time choosing to pass the award on so I am awarding all of you, my friends, this wonderful Stylish Blogger Award to thank you for all of your support, comments and friendship!

I also wanted to to that all of you for your wonderful comments on my daughters starfish headboard!
You have all been so sweet and so supportive!

I would like to my friend Tracy of Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures

(you should also check out her new blog Treasured Moments: Photos by Tracy , Gorgeous photos!)
Speaking of photos, I want to give a little shout out to my friend Kat at Low Tide High Style, she is really blooming with her photography skills, if haven't seen some of her recent photos, please drop in and take a peek and say hi!!


for featuring my little headboard!

Thank you so much!

I also want to welcome all my new followers/friends
and say thank you to you for joining me in my little journey through life!

I have finished painting my daughters room (WOO HOO) and hope to get some decorating done this weekend, but my weekend is already full, but hopefully I can a little of and a little that here and there)

Look at you go! 3 awards... very fun! I think I'm feeling like you this month. I'm really trying to get my mojo going but sick kids and grey skies don't inspire me.

Can't wait to see the room! No!

MICHELLE!!!!! When I read your first sentence I thought, "HOLY COW, she feels the same way I do!" Maybe it IS this freeze we are all getting! IT WAS THIRTY BELOW LAST NIGHT HERE IN MINNEAPOLIS!!! Oh dearest, I am so humbled and happy to see you have received the award with full joy. Thank you for the kind words and it is always so encouraging to know that their are people out there who receive the friendship and give it back in some way, to someone else. BLESS YOU and may you have a wonderful weekend! It is so fun to get to know you! Anita

Hey Stylish Girl! Congrats on that award! It was sooo sweet of you to shout out to all of those wonderful blog friends, Michelle. But.....doesn't surprise me. That's just the type of friend you are. ♥ I will certainly take some time tomorrow to check them all out. Hope you find your mojo someplace soon. I'll bet that it's buried under all that snow..... lol!

Good afternoon dearest Michelle! YOUR words are a delight to me and isn't blogging just wonderful? Especially the circle of souls that we all have been so fortunate to link up with. Have a blessed day, Anita

You are a great writer! Congratulations on your award. I'm sure this is only the beginning.

Have a great week!

Yay, Michelle! You certainly deserve it, you are one of the sweetest and most generous blogger I've met, and its always a pleasure to hear from you and visit your blog.

You're welcome! :)

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Hi lovely,

Ooooh, look at all your awards! I love the way you've responded to them with this shout out.

I hope you get some lovely blue skies soon. I can just imagine the hot sun on my face. I thought, rather enthusiastically, that I might get some garden-time this weekend, but when I went out, there was still ice in the pots that had water in them. Brrrr...... I went back inside after only a couple of minutes!! Buds, or no buds in the garden, I like to be warm!!


Low Tide High Style said...

See what happens when I don't visit your beautiful blog for a few days, I miss everything! You are so sweet and so deserving of all the accolades you receive my friend! And congrats on having your beautiful headboard featured on Amy's blog! Thank you so much for the shout out!

Kat :)
