My Weekend, Buddies, and Banners

We had a dear friend visiting over the weekend, so I wasn't online and couldn't reply to those who commented. Thanks to all of you! I must say I missed you! I get so used to visits from several of you and I miss when I'm not here to receive your messages!

I want to thank Mary at Mary's Writing Nook for the cute Blogging Buddies Award above. Isn't this a pretty award! I'm passing it along to a new blogging buddy - Ceekay at Thinkin' of Home
she has a beautiful home and she and I like a lot of the same things, such as tea pots, decorating, etc. She is fairly new at blogging, pay her a visit and leave her a comment so she'll know you were there!

Thanks to those of you who noticed my new banner! It was created by (another) Mary at Isabella's Closet. She does beautiful work and only charges five dollars! If you would like to order one for your blog, contact her at Isabella's Closet to see all the different designs she offers.

I'm happy to be back online, I have two meetings tomorrow, but will be back tomorrow night!

I love your new banner. It is very pretty. Congratulations on your award.

Thank you for visiting me today and leaving a message, especially the one about the glass box. You know, I feel sure it's a cigarette box as the top is inverted and has two slots or grooves that would hold a cigarette and then they could use the top for an ash tray. When I first showed it to my husband, he remarked it looked like an ash tray to him. So, that's it. Thank you, Katherine, for telling me your thoughts on my cute box. I love it and got it for a little over two dollars.

Have a good week.

Hi Katherine the banner Mary made is pretty.
It is funny how much we miss Blogland when we are gone for a day or so.

Your new banner is very pretty and also your award.
I need to learn how to decorate my template. That's one thing I haven't figured out how to do yet.

I love your new banner. Mary is such a talented lady. She's done several for me and tonight I just did one for Karen at Karen's Korner. It was fun and I finally mastered it.

Glad you are back online. I miss you when your AWOL. :-)

Katherine, I have an award for you to pick up and put on your sidebar if you like it, and I hope you will.
