The "You've Made My Day" award goes to……

Happy Valentines everyone! Pam over at Retro Renovation nominated me for “You’ve Made My Day” – isn’t that totally sweet! I’m just sad I can’t nominate her back, her blog gives me a smile every day – for example, you HAVE to watch this video!

Anyway, my nominations for the “You’ve Made My Day Award” (and it was tough to pick…like picking between you’re children! 🙂 )

Here are the obligatory “rules” that go with these sorts of posts…
The ‘you make my day award’ works like this:
1) Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day
2) Acknowledge the post of the award giver
3) Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news!
