Aw, Shucks and Gee, Thanks

Colin D. Smith graciously presented me with the "One Lovely Blog" award. It's things like this that make my constant fidoodling with my blog feel worthwhile, so I say "thank you". I'm actually teetering toward the brink of insanity with this fidoodling. I will actually change a word in a post just so that the lines of text line up better (I hate when a big word jumps to the next line, leaving a big gap). Like I said: I'm bordering on nut job status.

As the recipient of this award, I also have the privilege of passing it on to fifteen of my favourite "lovely" blogs (which just made me think of The Lovely Bones, and now I'm creeped out). Yes, fifteen. Not so simple. These fifteen will then pass it on to another fifteen, and so on. If I have given you the award and you've already received it, you can link to the fifteen you already chose (or do nothing, that's okay too ☺). This is just me telling you that I think your blog is worth checking out (and that just made me think of Notting Hill and the "I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy..." line, and now I'm smiling).

So without further ado or burbling, I give you my choices:

1.  A Writer In Bloom
11. Liza Kane
15. Daydreamer to Writer

I know I have given some of you awards very recently, so I hope I'm not coming across as stalkerish or creating unwanted work for you. Your blogs are great and I just wanted to give you the recognition that you deserve. You don't even need to pass on this award if you don't want to.

Other really great blogs, but that have already received the award:

I ♥LOVE♥ these blogs, but would never have the cojones (sp?) to offer them awards directly (somehow it would feel like they were made out of macaroni, popsicle sticks, and glitter glue):
  • Brodi Ashton - EVERNEATH (Jan. 2012) author and hilarious!
  • Veronica Roth - I love her book and her insightful take on things.
And since I started this post with a picture of a tea cup, I figured why not end it that way too (plus, this thing is just cool):


  1. You are most welcome, Jaime! And who made that tea cup into a stool? It looks like a perfectly good tea cup to me... and it would have held almost as much tea as I drink in a day. :)

  2. What? You drink tea? That's surprising (not) LOL. I was explaining to someone recently how teabags are basically the 'hot dog' form of tea (all the scraps tossed in a casing). I'm pretty much an Earl Grey junkie :D

  3. Thank you, thank you, Jaime! I love so many of the blogs you picked.
    And that teacup stool--I want!


I ♥ comments. They make me smile.☺
