The Irresistibly Sweet blog Award

Hello Sweet Folks,

So how are you this fine Tuesday!

I am honored and excited..........
just found out over the weekend that Patti from over at 
"They don't make them like they used to"
gave me this Sweet Blog Award, and I do mean sweet
cause that is what it is called "The Irrestibly Sweet
Blog Award".  How Cute!!
Thank You so Very Much Patti,  it was very
Special to me that you thought of me, and it was
appreciated very much.

I so appreciate Patti cause she is truly a Sweetie
herself.............we have kindled a friendship thru
blogging but sort of knew each other years before
because we attended the same church so we did
know each other just not really well,  but Patti
took a trip to Florida recently and we got to spend
 some time together and it was really lovely to
see her again,  and get to know her a lil better!
If you would like to check out her blog,

Anywho,  I am suppose to tell you 7 things about
myself that none of you know about me!

I worked as what they would now call, a pharmacy
tech at one time.

I have never had any medical surgeries,  thank
the Lord!!

I am really a natural brunette, but became a blond
by mistake, but liked it, so I kept it!!  lol

I love the town of Savannah, Ga. and have only
visited once in the summer, but hope to go back
some time when it is cool weather.  Way too
hot in the summer for me!!  lol

I used to be very good at art when I was in Jr. High,
 and my specialty was mixed media collages.  That are
 made from torn colored paper, like magazines. 

I won first place in an Art Show with a starving dog
collage I made. My Art teacher was the inspiration,
she suggested it and gave me a picture to go by.
It made me proud but think she was even
prouder!!  lol
She used to work with my grandmother years
before she had me in her class,  so guess I was
a lil special to her cause of that.

I only have half and step brothers and sisters,
and one of my half brothers (the one I lived with
most of the time) and one of my step sisters has
 gone on to glory already! My brother had Lou
Gehrigs disease,  and my sister cancer.  Yall might
remember hearing about my sister as that was just
 last year

Now I am suppose to choose 12 people to bestow
 this award on..................

I will just tell you... that I feel like you should be
able to do whatever you want with this award.
So if you want to give it to no one, or to one
other person, or twentyfive people,  that is 
entirely your call!  Some of you may be award
 or tag free, so hopefully,  this will relieve
 your worries about dealing with it.  I totally
understand why you are, as it does take
some work!!  So just enjoy it!!

So here goes, these are my blog choices;
I have included their blog addresses so you can
visit and Congratulate them if you would like!!

1. Rebecca over at Life and Godliness

2. Cass over at an Oasis in the dessert

Know I am suppose to do 1 more but don't know
if they would know who I am or not since I follow
 but haven't left any comments lately since they never
 leave comments either,  so am gonna stop here!

So if you aren't on this list, please don't feel bad,
because I love reading your blog as well, but  I'm
pretty sure you were probably on the list of one
of the two other blog awards I gave away within
 the last 2 years........... I like to try and get
 everyone that I correspond with,  if possible.
I like to be a fair and balanced Awarder! lol

Hey there Nellie~
Congratulations on getting this Award!
You are one of the Sweetest Bloggers in all of Blogland for sure!!!

Rebecca said...

Well, how sweet! That IS a surprise, Nellie. Thank you.

You certainly are a worthy recipient. And I learned many new things about you. (I think that is one of the nicest things about awards.)

CAS said...

That is just so sweet of you, Nellie! I am very flattered, so "thank you" very much! I loved reading those interesting things about you. Still trying to visualize you as a brunette, because you look very natural as a blonde. You did miss one very important thing about yourself, but you would never write it so I will. You have the most compassionate heart & sweet nature of anyone I've met (virtual or in real life) in a very long time. I'm so happy we are friends!

You definitely deserve a sweet blogger award, because you are definitely a total sweetheart!!

Wow, who knew you were an artist!! You have an eye for creativity...no wonder your house is always so beautiful!!!

I love Savannah too, though I haven't been there since the early 80's!! Way back in my single days, a couple girlfriends and I went up there for a few days. We loved it!!

Love and hugs to you,

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

My goodness! I to have been under the weather and
did not realize I'd won such a delightful award. Many times THANK YOU! Of course, you are so deserving of your award as you've always got a cheerful, loving spirit. I come by your blog just for a pick-me-up some days. Again, many thanks to you sweet Nellie.
Til next time...God bless you real good.

Janet said...


Congrats on your award. You are one of the sweetest people I know. You are so deserving. I still need to go on all the BLOGS and have a look around.

It did not surprise me that you are good in art because you have a creative side about you. Now your hair color through me of a bit but I like it on you and you know it is true blonds have more fun....although my hair is a dirty blonde. LOL

I enjoyed your blog today!

Blessings & Love
