To not accept would be ungracious.
They are a positive gesture in an increasingly negative world.
I get to spread the love.
It impresses my non blogger friends to no end. So here goes.....
Edith at Inch by Inch Quilting nominated me for the Sunshine Award.
nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award.
Thank you ladies, I am honoured to be recognized by such illustrious bloggers.
Deborah blogs about, in her own words, "making beekeeping beautiful." If it is bee related it's in Deborah's blog. These are two fantastic blogs and if you haven't read them yet I'm sure you will enjoy them.
Edith is a quilter extraordinaire. I am nominating her for a Versatile Blogger Award. (Nominating others is part of the deal.) I appreciate art in almost all its forms and Edith's creations are works of art. Edith and my next nominee Mary started blogging when I did. We kept at it, yeh for us!
Mary will probably be surprised, as I'm nominating her new blog for the Versatile Blogger Award and not her fabulous Indian cooking blog. Literature Therapy-finding the book that heals asks the question "Can reading a particular novel teach you what you need to know about your own life?" It is thoughtful and thought provoking. I happen to have read over half the books she has listed. Creepy or kindred spirits, I'm not sure?
My other Versatile Blogger Awards go to.....
David at the Anxious Gardener. Who couldn't love a blog that describes itself thus, "One sixteenth century Priory, six acres of grounds and a gardener." Add in Margaret and the sheep and it is just about perfect.
Jenni at Rainy Day Gardener. Like me, Jenni is in transition from one home and garden to another. It is fun to share the excitement of new possibilities, not to mention the days that push one to the edge.
Paul at A Powell River Photo Blog. Powell River is a visually awe inspiring locale of outstanding natural beauty. Paul captures it all in his blog. It could be overwhelming but Paul keeps it simple, and so much easier to enjoy.
Sarah at Hens In The Orchard. This gal drinks almost as much tea as I do. Drop in to meet the hens,ducks and the Westies too.
My Little Home and Garden. Beautiful photographs. The author photo says it all, for me anyway.
Three Dogs In A Garden. You do not want to miss Jennifer's latest book review.
Life In The Slow Lane. Many of you will probably know Elaine from Ramblings from Rosebank. I enjoy this quirky site too, especially the Diaries posts.
Finally Sunshine Awards go to Clover and Thyme , a very useful blog. Among other things I learned how to make pretty cloth napkins from Fat Quarters, I'm so pleased with them.
Polka Dot Galoshes. A transplanted Aussie writes from a Portland garden with humour and grace.
O.K. the rules, which you can find by going to the link, suggest 15 nominations. I'm not going to nominate blogs that are anything less than awesome and many I would have chosen are already award winners.
Also, today, I carried a lot of furniture up from the basement and out to the garage.
I'm supposed to list seven things about myself. After the strenuous activity of the day I can barely keep my eyes open, remembering my own name is a challenge. List to follow....
