Today I would like to share with you awards 2 & 3 of my trifecta.
Not just the awards, but more importantly the wonderful friends who passed them my way. And also to say once again to everyone who comments and follows …
THANK YOU !
Now forgive me for this post being so long.. but I have three friends to thank
#2 Award Numero Duo - Blogger Favorite Friend Award
My friend Tamerie from ‘A Little of This That and the Other’ kindly passed me this award. What a sweetheart she is. Now I understand this award is to recognize your Blogger ‘Favourite Friends’ or ‘Favourite Find’. Either way I am flattered.
Tamerie from ‘A Little of This That and the Other’
Tamerie is one entirely special and individual girl. ‘A Little Bit of This, That and the Other’ is exactly what you will find at Tamerie’s blog. If you think I love colour, then wait till you see Tamerie’s. It is a virtual kaleidoscope of colour and energy! And her talents range from upholstery to creating imaginative ‘women’ of tulle and netting. You have to see them to believe it. I wish I had the patience and tenacity to create something like that.
Such energy and dedication cannot help but encourage you to dream up some crafty invention of your own. She also has one mean ‘flip flop’ collection!! Take a walk on the colourful side and visit Tamerie’s blog you find all of this and a little bit of beach loving also.
#3 Award Numero Tre - One Lovely Blog Award
Some weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive the One Lovely Blog Award. Well two of my recipients give as good as they get .... and gave it right back!! Well..that’s gratitude! he he I am though very grateful, not just that they love my blog, but also as it now gives me the opportunity to again pass this award on to others. Here are the two special ladies in question;
Julie from ‘Chic Little Shop’
This special friend is the sweetest person in blog world I’m sure. They really do not come much sweeter than Julie. She was one of the first bloggers to come by to visit and leave me a comment. And back she came time and time again. I cannot tell you how much that meant to me. It’s tough when you first start and a little sad to see your own small posts sadly lingering with ‘0 comments’.
Of course I went to visit her blog also. There is always something ‘nice’ to be found there. A nice word about someone else. A nice gesture or thought, and pretty images to remind me that YES there is still ‘nice’ in this world. What a pleasure to bring ‘nice’ back into my life.
Jacqueline from ‘Home’
What can I say? My new best friend. I think everyone’s new best friend. Jacqueline is so gregarious and generous with her laughter and compliments, she spreads her joy and witty humour all over blog land. If she hasn’t been to you yet.. it is only a matter of time!! ha ha My comments just aren’t the same since Jacqueline’s been on vacation. Yes the lucky devil’s been off in Italy. The Amalfi Coast to be exact! I wonder what terror she has been up to there? I swear I can hear her tinkling laughter bouncing of the cliffs of Positano.
And .. as much as Jacqueline is fun, she is also warm and genuine, a true friend, and she also has one beautiful blog. I don’t know where she finds them, but she always manages the most wonderful images. Her style is unique and exceptional and her witty banter keeps you amused along the way. It must be the British thing! he he Whatever it is, Jacqueline is a winner in every sense of the word!
PAY It Forward
So here comes the fun part where I get to ‘pay it forward’. I truly want to pass these awards on to each and every one of you. Even those that I have passed awards to previously! But I’m sure you’ll agree these blogs/bloggers are worthy.
So to those special bloggers below, please help yourself to either, or both of the awards above. If you’re not inclined to display or pass the awards on, then that is fine by me. These awards are obligation free! I am just thankful to show you my appreciation. Here is my Baker's Dozen;
