  2. Thank you so much for the award and Congratulations on yours too!

  3. Hi Angie - Thanks for your response! Was told to give up Algebra at the age of 10, so at 71+, no wonder I have not got a clue!

  4. Have just added you button to the blog - how do I get the Libester Blog Award button now? Have just remembered how to do it, so before I forget again, would be grateful if you could let me know!

    1. Please check your "Etsy email" - I just sent the instructions there.

  5. I loved reading your comments. I've been wanting to try some gourd art. I love the things made with them. I'll have to find some project to do with them. I realy like the bird feeders I've seen. I enjoy Lark Rise... too! So fun to learn more about people!!

    1. Thanks - I had so much fun with the "Liebster Award"!
      I heard that "Lark Rise" will not be renewed for a fifth season - very sad.

  6. Thank you, Angie, for the nice shout-out. So fun to read the facts about you. I had never heard the "give me" saying; that's a good one. I also don't know that BBC show. I'll have to check that out, as I am a big BBC fan. "Doc Martin" is one of my current favorites.

    Congratulations on the award. You deserve it!

    1. Thank you! - I think the "give me" saying might be a Canadian one because all of my American friends & family members have never heard of it.

  7. Angie,
    Thank you so much for nominating me for the Leibster Award. I really appreciate your kind works. I am trying to get all of the questions done, and I should have it reposted tonight. I will send you a link when it is done.
