Mom's Penguin and Some Awards

Remember back in December when I shared Lucy's soda bottle penguins in one of my Cutest Thing Ever posts? Well, my mother decided that she needed to make one, and here she is...


Pretty cute, huh? She made hers smaller... she used 20 oz soda bottles instead of 2 liter bottles.


And my mother is a big knitter, so she whipped up a little hat and scarf instead of painting them on.


I love this little gal. She currently resides on the mantel in my living room.

I also wanted to mention that I received a couple of blog awards over the past few weeks. I was passed the Stylish Blogger Award by Homemaking Honeys. Stop over and check out their Holiday Ideas page... it's chock full of good stuff. I was also passed the Versatile Blogger Award by The Littlest Crafter. Make sure you check out K's craft date idea... fantastic! Thank you ladies!

There is something really neat coming up here on my little old blog. I have to keep it a secret for now, but you'll find out soon enough :) Thanks for stopping by today!

I did these penguins with my four nieces. Each one turned out different and they were ADORABLE! Everyone that comes to their house comments on how cute they are.
