I've Got Sunshine!!


Sunshine and Diamonds

Today I want to say thank you to some wonderful gals who have passed me awards in recent weeks. It is always a happy surprise and much appreciated by both Julie and Ruby. [Ruby more as she is the flamboyant one!!]. These small gifts remind me that blogging is a community of generous and talented people who all contribute to brightening my day via their blogs and comments.

Sunshine Award

The following lovelies have passed me the Sunshine Award. All wonderful bloggers each with their own unique talents to keep me amused and visually delighted. So whether it be witty prose, photographic journeys, gorgeous interiors or artistic talents you are after.. you are sure to find something to enjoy from these diversely entertaining blogs. Thank You so much ladies. It is much appreciated here as summer leaves Australia and heads north.

Pam of 'Red Ticking'
Juliet of 'JulietK'
The Five Diamonds Award

And because I am obviously spoilt!! .. I also received the Five Diamonds Award from the beautiful Jeanne of 'Collage of Life'

Thank you all for thinking of me..
I am in the process of changing my blog format so have moved all my awards to a separate page [here].

Beautiful Blogger Award

So as my way of saying 'Thank You' .. I have created a 'rule free' award that I can pass back to each of you .. The 'Beautiful Blogger Award'. Green in honour of St Patrick's Day tomorrow and Flowers as the universal gift of appreciation. Also, as I think Marina was away on vacation when I posted her award, I'm including her on this list too... Thank you my lovelies for thinking of me. It is always a pleasure to pop over your way or have you visit me!


For the following bloggers with many thanks for you friendship;

Jeanne of 'Collage of Life'
Pam of 'Red Ticking'
Juliet of 'JulietK'
Marina of 'Iced Vovos'

Hi Julie, I've just stumbled across 'being ruby' via 'everyday chick'. From what I've seen your blog is so gorgeous! I'm about to become a 'follower', looking forward to lots more of your creative 'work'.

Hey Julie,
....or should I say, Little Miss Popular !!!! haha. What a collection of awards that have been bestowed on you and, may I say, so well deserved.
I love your award that you have passed on. Such a beautiful photograph. It really reflects your love of photography.
Have a sunshiny day ! XXXX

Congratulations Julie and Ruby! You certainly DO deserve the Sunshine Award for your imaginative and fun blog! xx Becky

Ange said...

When do we get to see you on stage with the ballgown! YOU are definitely a star and deserve all of your awards. I'm giving you a permanent one too - for loyalty, stamina (for following all those people who love you so much) - careful - one day you'll be a victim of your own success and will never have time to hit the Aussie sunshine. You're an inspiration Julie, you really are. I reckon you can ditch the Ruby persona - she's nothing on you!!

red ticking said...

dear julie...

thank you for your amazing kindness.

julietk said...

Julie you have been reading my mind :-) I was thinking how nice it would be to have a no strings award to pass to deserving bloggers without the guilt of having to pass on the rules with it. Thanks for adding me to your list of beautiful people, Juliet

Giulia said...

yes, you do so deserve them, Julie-Ruby. Julie the Cat & I wish you a happy St. Patrick's Day...we'll tip a hat & a toast in your direction tomorrow. Cheers, my dear!

Dash said...

Well done Julie, and what a beautiful award you have created, have a lovely day.

Sue said...

Congrats on all those well earned awards. The picture, as always is gorgeous!

Mise said...

Julie, it occurs to me that I haven't given you an award yet. Remiss, remiss, remiss of me. I don't tend to dish them out, you see, because of laziness, but I'd hereby like to give you the Best Pal Blogger award, given exclusively only to people who can be relied on to turn up in a tiara to accept it. Your posts and your comments brighten dull days and rival the sunshine on bright ones.

The Stylish House said...

Congrats on your awards. Wherever you are you bring sunshine!

Angie Muresan said...

Congratulations on your awards, Julie! There is a reason why you are so loved, and that is because you're absolutely awesome. Love and hugs to you. :)

Tish Jett said...

Awwww, dearest Julie,

You are such a sweetheart. Thank you so very, very much. It's like receiving a double award and coming from you it is extra special.

I think you may have invented what will become the blogosphere's most popular award. Brilliant.

Thank you for your kindness.
