3 special awards from 3 special blogging buddies & a Giveaway!

I won these candlesticks from Jan at Jan and Tom's Place. Thanks so much Jan! I haven't decided where I'll use these yet, but I'll be sure to post a picture and let you know. Jan also sent a very sweet note, and some herbal tea!

Now for the awards:

The first one is from Jan. She is such a sweet lady and always posts prayer requests for other bloggers. Be sure to stop in and give her a visit!

The next one is from Angel at Keeping up with John and Angel. I enjoy 'keeping up' with them through their blog. I really can't remember how I found her blog, but have enjoyed getting to know her. She is a kindergarten teacher, so we have some common interest! Please stop in and give her a visit!
The third award is from Bella at Bella Casa~Beautiful Home. I love to check Bella's Blog and am hooked on it too! She loves to bargain shop like I do and it is always fun to see her latest find!

I would like to pass all three of these awards on to everyone on my blogroll!
Please take one or all three!

I had done a rather long post the other day following all the rules and linking blogs to the awards....but blogger didn't play by the rules, and ate my post! So....hope all of you ladies will understand if I do it this way!

Thanks again Jan, Angel and Bell! You are great blogging buddies!
Please forgive me for taking so long to properly thank you for these awards and the giveaway.

Diane, congrats on your awards. Blogging is supposed to be fun, so I think it's okay to do whatever you want with awards. Too many rules don't leave a lot of room for fun!

Diane, congrats, on you awards. You are so worthy of them all. I love to visit your posts. I say awards are wonderful, but passing them on can be such a chore. You know me, I love to pass awards on to all my blogging friends and do it when ever the need arises. You go girl. Your computer ate your post??? LOL It has happened to me too.

Hugs, Jeanne
