BEAUTIFUL Monday! Award and GIVEAWAY!

My Monday was made a little bit less Moday-ish this morning, when I received this...



...from Joy at Mommas Kindacrafty!  (Boy, is she ever!)
Thank you, Joy!

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

 
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
Check.

2. Share 10 things about yourself.
1. When I am homesick, I cuddle with my blankie from my Grandparent's house, eat ABC's & 123's, and drink Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice.

2. I {heart} catalog shopping!

3. I check the mailbox frequently, hoping for special surprises!

4. I really do have the taste buds of a small child (see #1).  I love Mac N Cheese, Spaghetti O's, PBJ's, Grilled Cheese...

5. I'd choose shopping at an estate/garage sale over shopping at the mall...any day.

6. Sometimes I buy things at said estate/garage sales just because my grandmas have them!

7. Every once in a while I need a cup of highly caffeinated AWAKE TAZO tea in order to fall asleep.

8. I HATE olives and mushrooms, but I love the flavor of olive/mushroom juices after picking the olives and mushrooms off of an olive and mushroom pizza.  Just ask my husband about our third date (almost our last date), where I told him I would be good with anything other than mushrooms or olives, then promptly ordered a mushroom and olive pizza.

9. I love to get a good cry from a sad movie (by myself, witha cup of coffee, box of tissues, and blinds closed).

10. I'd spend my last dollar at a thrift store...okay, that's probably not a little-known fact.


3. Pass the award along to bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

This was REALLY tough - there are SO many!

But, I am passing this Beautiful award to the blogs below.  I STRONGLY encourage you to check them out!  In fact, I will reward you (See below.)!
Tavia @ mamaTAVE 
Mama Lusco @ Mama Lusco Handmade
 

4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
Check.

And now, for the GIVEAWAY!  By looking at my list of 10, you know I love scoring vintage sewing/craft items at estate/garage sales, and thrift stores.   So, I am giving away an envelope full of some of my more recent finds!  If you have won a giveaway from me before, you know I am a post office procrastinator...so rest assured, this envelope is already packaged (fabric, ric-rac, ribbon, buttons...), and awaiting YOUR name!

This post is getting ridiculously long - so, let's keep it simple.  Check out the blogs I am awarding (See #3 above), and let me know your favorite blog post found on one of these new Beautiful Blogs! Second optional entry for becoming a follower, or being one already. Leave a comment for each - That's it!  I'll use random.org to pick the winner on Friday 6/25.
