A Blog Award!

I received this wonderful award from Ingrid at Fashion in My Muse. It's my first-ever award and I love it! I especially love what it's all about.

This is the text that accompanies the award:

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."

So, while I'm feeling all warm and mushy from receiving this award, I am nominating the following eight bloggers/blogs to receive - and pass on! - the award!

Anne Huskey-Lockard at el Milagro Studio
Bernadette Ostrozovich at Artifacts
Ulla at Ullabenulla
Lisa at Faerie Enchantment
G at Doves Today
Pattie at The Joy of Nesting
Rhonda at RhondaMum
Peggy at Peggy's Mixed Up Art

These are all blogs that inspire, encourage, and amuse me to no end. They are also written by some of the friendliest, sharpest, nicest people I've had the pleasure to run across on the web! I hope you will read their offerings, if you don't already! These are artists and art enthusiasts and art appreciators. Their participation is what makes bloggerland so darned terrific!

Hi Tristan,
just dropped by to see what you were up to. I just watched the You
Tube clip and was amazed by your talent for quilt-making. Stunning, just stunning work!

Have a great evening!
Deanna :D

Hi Tristan,
I am so pleased that you are happy about the award. You are indeed very charming and you seem to know lots of other charming bloggers. I'm especially glad that Peggy is on the list as I'm a fan. I'll have to check out the rest of your nominees. Cheers!

Tristan, these are wonderful! I found my way here last weeka and wanted to be sure and return for your PS offering. You didn't disappoint! Love the color of that room with the zebra rug and the DR with the ballroom chairs the best! I have a chaise like the one in the window only it's green instead of pink.

Happy Pink Saturday!
