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!
