I was quite tickled the other day when I saw a wonderful little surprise on my blog. I just received an award from Beth at Bartering Basics and Living Life on Less. You should really check her blog out she has so many wonderful savings tips, and great ways to get things for FREE. I love reading her blog, and thinking of new and different ways to live like a queen and spend like a pauper.

So, because I received this award there is an opportunity for others to get it too.

Here are the rules:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 or more other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Pretty cool to give something to new blogs you've discovered instead of those you've loved for a while. And, if you've already gotten the award, its okay; because who wouldn't like multiple people thinking that they have a lovely blog. And, I definitely want to feature some of my new followers who have been so wonderful to me. So, here are my 19 awardees:
