Yostie Blog Award: Laid Off Mom

Hi, friends!  :-)  Happy Friday to you!

I wrote on Tuesday that I was generously awarded the Yostie Blog Award by my good friends Lisha and Kyle over at One House One Couple last week!  I thank them so much for thinking of me for this award -- it really is just too sweet.  But, now it's my turn to award a wonderful blogger with the Yostie, and I am so happy to announce that it is my friend Louise's blog, Laid Off Mom.

Not only is Louise a fabulous homemaker, she is also one of the nicest people I have met since I started this blog back in early March.  She and I became fast friends, and her support for me and All Things Luxurious has been so wonderful, and I am ever grateful for her friendship.  

One of my favorite posts by Louise is about her DIY mantel, which I shared on this blog a couple of weeks ago.  You can check that out here.

Can you even believe that she made this?  Unreal.

Another of my favorite posts is about her DIY birdcage chandelier.  Yes, you heard that right.  And it is incredible.  You can read that post here.

Really?  She is just amazing.

Now, it's Louise's turn to choose a blog for the Yostie Blog Award!  Here are the rules:

-First of all, you need to choose a blog that you’ve really been enjoying lately.

-Go submit the blog you chose at the Yostie Blog Award Hall of Fame.

-Then write a blog post honoring the blog you chose.

-You must include two of your favorite blog posts from that blog to link to.

-The post must include these rules.

-Include the Yostie button html code somewhere in your sidebar:
<a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=””></a>

And that's that!  :-)  Thanks again, Louise, for all of your beautiful inspiration, and your gigantic heart!

love, maria
