Sunshine Award

So this past weekend I was given the "Sunshine Award" from Sweet Charli, which is an awesome blog and boutique that I've recently become a big fan of:

She has the cutest ideas and loves to show off her daughter Charli and her cute princessy ways!

Anyways I am supposed to give six others the Sunshine Award so here it goes:

Ann Marie at White House, Black Shutters has an awesome attitude! She is always enjoying the nature around her and loving her family! I really really like her tutorial on homemade organic baby wipes! Soooo cool. When I have a baby, I'm definitely giving those a spin :) She also hinted to me about a Kevin James sketch on greeting cards...hilarious! It brightened my day. Check her out!


Sandra at Sawdust and Paper Scraps! She has been doing a lot of work on her house and it is becoming so beautiful! Her recent bathroom remodel has helped me to know that it's ok if it takes a while to finish a project. And her new stairway picture-wall is the epitome of what I've wanted to do for a while now!


Shaunna at Perfectly Imperfect. She is always finding the most amazing hordes of furniture just BEGGING to be redone and placed in her beautiful house. She had an awesome giveaway and I actually won it! The giveaway winnings inspired me to re-do my bathroom {in progress} and make it into what I've wanted for a while! She is so nice, and a great motivator for me to keep up my crafts.

Nextly {my new made-up awesome word}:

Nester at Nesting Place. Her home is beautiful, and always makes me want to COPY! Haha Her love of neutrals has pushed me into loving them too, and she is always inspiring about how to make your house beautiful, but not perfect. She loves hanging plates, painting the walls, and rearranging lots! It is nice to remember that it's nice to have change, and you can change things as much as you want as long as it makes YOU happy :)

Thenly {not as great as nextly}:

Ann Marie and Cara at Twice Lovely. They are the pros at taking what was old and making it into something new for you! Beautiful chairs, sidetables, vanities and more- everything they lay finger to becomes a masterpiece and looks amazing. They make me want to paint everything in my house :)

Lastly {no need to make any more words up}:

Terry and Cherished Treasures. In between featuring others and posting about her daughters stay in Japan, she has some crafty ideas. She has made some awesome finds at Goodwill {If only I could make similarly awesome finds...} and has also made some super cute holiday treats like her Easter peeps cupcakes! Super cute! Say hi to her!

It's nice to receive this award! :)

Why thank you for this lovely award. I know I won't do justice to the commentary you applied to each of our blogs so I won't even try. You just have a way with words. Oh, it's going to be hard to choose just 6 bloggers that inspire me but I accept the challenge. Thanks again.
