It is time....

It is long overdue that I acknowledge these awards, well, at least the first one. The others are relatively new. I have debated and debated on how to do this...back in July while we were gone for a little get away, my friend Carletta at Round the Bend gave me this Super Commenter award...I cannot remember what all was happening, but I kept putting off acknowledging it till I was embarrassed about it. But it has always been there in the back of my mind...I visit Carletta's blog almost every day of the week...seriously, there have only been a handful of days that I haven't visited. I felt and still feel honored that she gave me this award...and Carletta, I am sorry I was so long in acknowledging it.
And just recently I started visiting the Tuscaloosa Daily Photo Blog and she gave me the award below and I have not did anything about it...I really do appreciate it, but not sure if I am going to pass it on.
And then there is Ms. Hays at Bluff Area Daily Photo...I found her through Sky Watch Friday. And I have visited her every day since. And will continue to do so. Again, I am not sure if I am going to take the time to pass it on. Mainly because I am so indecisive about who I would give them to.
But I do want you to know that I feel very honored to have received them and I wanted to publicly acknowledge them.

Change of subject....
I showed you a couple knives and sheaths that Roger had made.
Well, he had these three knives finished then also, but did not have the sheaths made to go with them.
He finished the sheaths 3 or 4 days ago, and they are done at their new homes. Due to things happening these are the best shots I got.
They have also been given to their new owners.
I think I am safe in saying that everyone is happy with them.
Roger worked on them all at the same time and I think he decided he would rather work on knives one at a time.

edited to add: The dollar bill is pictured with the knives for you to have something to go by to imagine their size.

Well I'll never get any award for being a good commenter. :) I visit Carletta's, dot's, your eg tour guide, and a couple others about every day but don't leave a comment often enough. I really do enjoy them but don't always say so.

Nice to hear about your awards. The knives and their sheaths are look great and show such a high level of craftsmanship. I like the notch for a person's finger to keep from sliding forward onto the blade.

Rose those are really nice knives and sheath's for them your husband did a really good job on them.
Now my question is whats the dollar bill for?

Also thanks for stopping in on my blog several times. I guess no one knows what they are, i looked on the internet as i thought they were some kind of Holly, but found no photo that looked like these do. So i guess it is a mystery and i will just enjoy the color.

Congratulations on your awards...your blog deserves each and every one! Your husband's knives are so beautiful and well crafted! The handles look so smooth and I imagine that are feel great when you hold them. The dollar shows me that they are smaller than I thought originally!

Barb said...

Congrats on your awards Rose, well deserved I might add :>)!! The knives are truly beautifully crafted, your hubby is very talented. Thank you for the comparison in the size with the dollar bill! Keep on blogging you do it so well!

I would think anyone would be happy to have one of those beautiful knives.

Carletta said...

You're welcome Rose - you deserve it just as much today as then!
Roger did a great job on these. He really is talented.

Sometimes the awards are the pits. We feel so honored to have received them, but it so hard to pass them along....such work. Not sure how you came across my blog. Think this is the first time I have been to yours. Will be back to visit.
