i've been thinking more and more about how to jazz up my powder room and since it's small and just plain boring now, what better way than wallpaper? i've always wanted to...but been afraid! i guess because of all the horror stories i've heard. is it really so hard to do? as soon as i find some wall worthy paper, i'll find out...

so i'm looking for something to cheer up this blog. i think because to me, this is the worst part of the year. the last month of winter. i am sick of looking out my window to see non-grass and bloomless branches. i can hardly wait for color and buds and green grass, oh my! even my koi fish are coming to the top of their water fountain lately, hoping the water will hurry up and warm up!! i couldn't agree more. it's this time of year when i realize how much i've missed the outdoors...when i look forward to getting outside and doing what i love to do most, gardening! part of my love for gardening is a love for photographing my gardens! so, i have a ton of pictures to look at, which usually makes me crave the spring even more!! i know you can't force it, but a girl can dream....

wow!! i'm so honored to have been given my very first little bloggers award by my new friend, ann at hill country house!!! i mean, how cool is that? i feel so special that she chose me and eight others...really a nice, nice gesture that is very much appreciated!! so, thanks ann!! and i should mention that had the award not been given to me by ann, i would most definitely give HER the very same award!!! so, here's the deal. i choose eight of my favorite bloggers and the chain goes on and on...
WHAT THE AWARD IS ABOUT....
"This blog invests and believes in Proximity-nearness space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming....these bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propogated. Please give more attention to these writers!!!!"
WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO....
"Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."
so there you have it! i will certainly pass this on...now comes the hard part. the one thing i've fully learned from my short time in the blogging world is that there are SOOO SOOO many great and wonderful bloggers. i've only seen a small fraction of them, but if i had to choose my very favorite eight, here they are.
