Here We Go Again Folks...

Okay, so for today, I was torn between two wonderful bloggers. I decided on Angela from The Painted House. WOW! Has this family been through the wringer! Take a look!. So on top of bills from student loans, Clayton gets cancer (Do you "get" cancer? It sounds like a privilege worded like that, doesn't it?), and then her mom has a heart attack. All the while there are kids, laundry, house and regular bills to be tended. I think she is my hero. (I was going to say "heroine" but it just doesn't sound right. Druggies took away a woman's right to be a "Heroine". Jerks.)

All of this, though, I discovered after I totally fell in love with her new kitchen! She is actually an artist, which is how she won the "Artsy Fartsy" award I have the honour of bestowing upon fellow bloggers. Be sure to look through at the different rooms she has designed! She is FABULOUS!

She was recently featured on The Secret Is In The Sauce. This is how I ended up coming across her blog myself.

Now Angela, like Heather and Melissa before her, has the five awards to hand out, if she chooses to do so.

Congratulations Angela!

Congratulations, Punkin! Artsy Fartsy fits after one of your recent blog posts.

I agree, she has been a trooper to handle all the chaos. I love you!

Angela said...

Well, Rhonda, Rhonda, Rhonda. If it weren't for all those sweet, lovely, and absolutely kind words, then I just might pinch you on the arm for that hideous photo! :) Ha, you know, I love it!

Thank you so much for this honor! Now that just made my day. And, yeah, "getting" cancer! But it was a mighty privilege to "get" healed! Praise God!

Thank you, again! Wow! I just might call my husband in here to read how lucky he is to be married to me. :)

Angela sported the dorky glasses to plug my books, and she told me she wouldn't humiliate herself for just anyone. So I feel privileged!

Thank you, Rhonda!

That is a great choice...I love her kitchen and she looks adorable in her glasses!

Rhonda said...

I totally agree! That was the real reason she won! She's just so darned cute! lol

Heather said...

Ooooo...Angela totally deserves it!
