This week, my blog received 2 awards. How fun is that!

The first was Our Lovely Blog Award from Mary at The Fresh Notes. Mary's a newbie blogger who's doing a fine job of keeping us entertained and informed with her stories, photos, and recipes. Thank you, Mary, for acknowledging Beth's Take on Life! It means a lot to me.

The Rules
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

The wonderful blogs I want to share this award with are as follows:

* Milkmoon Here you'll be able to enjoy a glimpse into the life of a creative Irish mom.

* Loving. Living. Small. As a small space dweller, I turn to Loving. Living. Small. for inspiration.

* Maartin Maailma This one is in Finnish, and I can't understand a word, but the photos say it all.

* The Cottage Cheese This is the place to explore interesting homes around the U.S.

* Jersey Girl Blog, Vintage Clothing As a former Jersey Girl who also collected and sold vintage clothing, I get a big kick out of Jersey Girl's blog.

* Artsy Mama I enjoy this colorful, lively blog filled with examples of beauty from indoors and out.

* Chronically Vintage This blog is new to me, but it does a great job of feeding my need for all things old and interesting.

* Diary of a Dishie As a vintage china NUT, Diary of a Dishie is one blog I can really relate to.

The second award to come my way this week was the Big Blog Award, given to me by my good friend Silke of Metamorphosis. Silke is sharing with all of us her budding artistic endeavors, plus the other happenings in her fabulous life in Georgia. Since we're on opposite ends of the Eastern seaboard, Silke's blog helps us stay connected. Once you discover her blog, she'll begin to feel like a friend of yours too, I'm sure.

I'd like to share the Big Blog Award with these great blogs:

* Heather Bullard Simply one of the loveliest blogs I've ever seen.

* Paris Hotel Boutique Journal A recent find, and I'm glad it's on my radar.

Thank you to everyone who blogs just for the joy of it! Your thoughts, words, and pictures enhance our lives, providing much inspiration and pleasure!

Thanks so much for the award, Beth! I can't wait to check out the other blogs you've given the award to. They look so interesting! I've been so busy with work that I'm way behind on my blogging. I will pass this award on in the next day or two. A friend tagged me a few days ago, and I haven't even done that post yet! As always, love your photography!

Thanks to The Cottage Cheese for your comment. I, too, have been really busy with my job, and it does cut down on our blogging time. Glad you are liking my photographs. I hope to post more soon.
