What a wonderful surprise to check my emails this morning
and find out I had been nominated for a Blog Award!
I don't have a gazillion followers so this is rather special to me. It comes from the aforementioned Heather over at Raining Silence. Thankyou Heather you have truly blessed me today. xx.
Now comes the best bit.....10 blogs I want to award...
so here goes, the blogs and the reasons why:
Squiggly Rainbow - Fristly I love the name of this blog...must ask the "Why?" question. Rach is a beautiful person who does so much, she is an artist and I love her creative flair. I suspect that if we lived near each other we would become good friends....I 'get' her and I already love her very much. Rach and I would share lots of cuppas and chats I am sure!
The Alternative Wife - I totally adore the gorgeous pics that Dawn serves up on her delicious blog. If you love photography then this is a must. Also track down the side of her blog and check out her 'Wedding Photos' tab and see the awesome photograph of her wedding in The New York Weddings magazine - a stunning statement!
Adelaideand Beyond- this delightful blog pays homage to my home town with plenty of gorgeous photographs by the clever Dianne - and she is a great lady to boot - how do I know this? She is one of my fab aunts and I adore her and her talents!!
The Textured Leaf- I am rather excitedly waiting on a grown up dress just for me from this super talented lady...she makes delightful things, but also I love her warmth and friendliness on the page. Check out Wendy, as my M would say - "She is wicked"!!!
Beneath My Heart - Traci has like a thousand thousand followers BUT each and every time I comment, she sends me a message back - now that is special! She is a shining example of what a christian should be and has encouraged me in my spiritual life so many times. This blog has been my 'saving grace' on many days!
Gifts of Serendipity- what a gem, what a find....Felicity writes so beautifully and I always enjoy a gander over to her place...we get to share plenty of thoughts and ideas and I love her company. She pushes me artistically. Thankyou beach princess xx
m.e.- Cathie writes from the heart and photographs from the heart....each post touches me in some way...she is one of life's treasures and I do adore her and her blog very much.
Jewelscapes- love the fashion sense of the Divine Deanna. I want to look just like her!!!! Her ability to piece items together encourages me to strive and be true to my eclectic bohemian self because when I do that is when I truly shine! Oh and her jewellery is something else, I have a couple of pieces and I wear them LOTS!!
Marigold Road - well for a start I love Mindy herself - she is warm, cute and madly in love with her children and we both have a Shawn/Shaun whom we are crazy about!! She will make you laugh and she will make you cry BUT she will always keep it real!! I am so glad I decided to take a walk down Marigold Road.
And last but not least a very special mention to Day After Wonderful Daybecause without Beth I would not be here doing my thing, writing in my compendium and meeting so many fab people!! Beth you have seriously changed my life and I can't wait to sit on your porch and have a good long chat!!!
Happy Thoughts to all of you....enjoy whatever your day brings!
