One Lovely Blog Award And My Nominations.

Hello all!
I know this is the most I have ever blogged, in like......forever??? I know, two blog posts right after each other? It's unheard of, I know, but I totally misunderstood what the "One Lovely Blog Award" meant. I didn't realize I was supposed to spread the love! Oh, me oh my, I'm a mess I know! Anyway....

I was pleasantly surprised and so happy when I read my lovely and sweet friend, Grace's blogpost a few weeks back! Her and I are practically best friends and she is a darling. ;-) She is just a blessing in my life! Thank you, Grace for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! You are just too sweet, my friend and so very beautiful! <3 <3

Here are the rules:
-Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog
-Post about the award
-Share seven facts about yourself
-Nominate at most 15 people
-Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated

Seven facts about me…
1. I’m second to the last of 8 children, which makes me #7.  I had to learn to grow up a lot after the "older" ones moved out, which has really molded me into what I am today. And I am so happy how God has planned everything out so perfectly. :)
2. I'm a DREAMER. A real dreamer. I have so many dreams you wouldn't be able to count all of them! Also, I used to be a introvert and then I changed to a extrovert and now I'm kinda in the middle of the two, stuck with a bunch of dreams. :)
3. I love vintage stuff, vintage fashion, sewing, music, history, traveling, art, painting, missions, reading, 1940's music, listening to old records, babies, homemaking, farming, creating things-writing, blogging, graphics-anything, and visiting with and meeting new people. I also, love to listen to older folks tell stories of their life in the old days. (Can you see the dreamer in me yet?)
4.  I enjoy electronics. As in photography, videography, filmography and editing, but that's about it. 
5. I enjoy rainy days with a cup of tea or coffee but I also enjoy bright, sunny, spring, green  and bloomy days enjoyed with a cup of iced unsweet tea or coffee. :) 
6. I am a hoarder. Of everything vintage and artful. And I am working on that real hard.... :/
7. Most of ALL, I love JESUS with ALL of my heart, mind and soul. He is my EVERYTHING and my Ultimate Love. I love His creations and I love Him so much, I would die for Him. 

My nominations are: (You gals have the most cute and darling blogs!)

Well I just want to say I am encouraged and blessed by each of you girl's blogs. Ya'll are a blessing to me! May God Bless each and every one of you!
And if you have a blog, dear reader, please share it with me below. I would love to visit it and share it with others
God's Blessing on you all,
~His Girl,

One Full Happy Day. :)

Hello my dear readers!
How are you all? I am doing great. :)
I am now legalized! 
After 3 tests and a lot of waiting and finally GIVING EVERYTHING including this small thing to GOD, I am now a licensed driver. Not because of me, but God. You may think it is strange of me to give this 'tiny' normal thing to GOD, it isn't strange, it's called being dedicated to GOD. Jesus is my all so why shouldn't I give Him my all?? God is my best friend, my help, my shield, my love. He is my everything, so why shouldn't I give Him my Everything?? He has taught me a lot, just through these tests. It was hard, yes, but when I gave it to God and asked Him to take over it was easier. I am so grateful and thankful that I have JESUS by my side ALWAYS AND FOREVER. I would be lost without HIM. "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD." Psalm 150:6,  I haven't driven a lot these past 2 days but I really don't mind it. :) But I am so excited! All I have left to do is to figure out the insurance and all that adulting stuff, than I can truly drive legally. :)
 I can't tell you how happy I am to have those tests over and done with.....Ah. I feel so confident now! They actually let me pass!!! I failed twice but the third times a charm, right??

Right after I got my license! You might not think I look that happy here but, believe me, I was VERY happy!!
 After my test we went to Panera Bread-a restaurant/bakery. Mom let me drive all over town and on the way home. (!) After we went there, I asked her if we go to Jo-Ann's, so she said yes and we went and I looked (more like drooled) over ALL the wonderful fabrics and patterns. It was so amazing. I am determined to think that Jo-Ann's was accidentally named that, instead of Abigail's Fabric Store. :-) ;-D For one, it describes me and my personality perfectly. I mean, it has painting supplies, cake decorating supplies, fabrics, patterns, buttons, gardening stuff, the list goes on!!
Vintage Patterns. My favorite!! <3
 I actually got these 3 for $5.00 and saved $56.00! As you can see, I was very happy!
Recently I've been into the 1930's fashions and when I found this one (in the middle) I was super happy! I can't wait to start it!
If any of you didn't know already, I have a sewing blog which you can view here, if you like. :) I'll post on there soon, don't worry. :)
Well gotta go!
I hope all of you are doing well and are enjoying this Spring weather!
His Girl,
