A Brilliante Award





Before I get started on todays theme (and to be honest, I haven't even decided what the theme is going to be, except I think I may tell you the story of our return from England...I'm in a mood to relive old nightmares...I want to tell you that our BeachKat (http://justabeachkat.blogspot.com/ )has honored me once again...how thrilled I was to receive this lovely award all the way from Destin, Florida. I'm going to have to have Mac build me a fireplace mantel to put it on...here are the rules about this lovely piece of sculpture...


Here are the rules to pass this award on to someone you think is deserving:


Display logo and link to who gave it to you.


Nominate at least 7 blogs.Add links to those 7 blogs.


Leave the nominees a message that they received the award.


It's that simple. I think I can do it...


I'd like to nominate the following seven blogging friends:


Ann at Ancient One's Place (http://everlastingmercy.blogspot.com/) I've only discovered Ann recently but she has become a favorite of mine quickly. You must go visit this North Carolina lady, she is awesome.


Sarah at http://britgalusa.blogspot.com/ who is a transplanted Brit with a lovely outlook on life and she's interesting, to boot!


Merisi at Merisi's Vienna for Beginners (http://merisi.blogspot.com/) who has such brillient photography to share with us, that maybe we need to invent an award for her...



Sandy at I Beati (a meeting place to share our blessings and laugh a little (http://spiritifelici.blogspot.com/) where you will see lovely funny little vignettes of photography that will indeed make you laugh a little, or a lot depending on your mood!



Cowgirl at Riverdale Rambings is another of my favorites...I want to go to New Zealand...and it's all because of her. I don't know if it's because the descriptions she gives of her homeplace or just to meet her...maybe both, but please go meet her and her hubby Richard .(http://cowgirlat.blogspot.com/ )



Mari-Nanci is a lovely Southern Belle...well, not really m while she is lovely she just likes to think she's a Southern Belle and we affectionately call her Miss Mari-Nanci...we're afraid not to...go check out all the lovely photos and quaint old sayings and just plain down home goodness at http://smilnsigh.blogspot.com/ and you'll see what I'm talking about.



I certainly cannot leave out Jeanne at Life or Something Like it, which has to be the most improved blog around...give the girl a new computer and a great camera and she goes with it...and has not failed to entertain me...let her entertain you...hmm, sounds like a Gypsy Rose Lee song, doesn't it? Anyway, you can fine her at http://jeanne-lifeorsomethinglikeit.blogspot.com/



Okay, right. Well, now I'm gonna run over and tell the girls that I have a surprise for them, and later tonight I will begin the retelling of the Nightmare Trip to the USA...

Congratulations to you, Hon! And thank you.

Afraid not to call her _Miss_ Mari-Nanci, hu? You just bet your bloomin' knickers, you'd better be afrrrrrrrrrraid. >,-))))

Miss Mari-Nanci
{Just the sweetest, tiniest, dearest, shiest, most quiet, non-pushy, timmerous little ol' gal you would ever want to meet! -heh,heh,heh,heh,heh-}

Veggie Mom said...

Congrats, and welcome home to the good ol' US of A! I linked to Beach Kat--she seems like a bloggy friend whose acquaintance I'd like to make! I'll have to think on some honorees of my own...

Jeanne said...

LOL Thank you Miss Sandi. Should I don a feather boa and fancy headress and really entertain you? hehe. Seriously, I love being able to share pieces of life from my little corner with you. Congrats to you and thanks for hanging with me and I'll be sharing with other deserving folks. {{HUGS}}

Congratulations!!

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

You're going to run out of room with all these awards of yours! :D

Just so glad that this one is from BeachKat since it would be too weird if you had one from Lee, Vee, and Dee.

So you're going to write more? I'll have to stop in later...

If you had all your awards on your mantle, it would have to be a VERY big mantle. You're the best...so you deserve lots and lots of awards. (Don't forget to add this one to your sidebar.)

I love this World of Blog because they are so many great friends to meet. Many of those you passed it on to are new to me, so I can't wait to visit them. Any friend of yours, I know will be someone I'll enjoy too.

Hugs!
Kat

MS Sandi ... you are a dear and you are deserving of these awards and the friends that have bestowed them upon you...

I love your post below too because I feel so much the same way... people have touched your soul... as for the unkind ones.. and they are there..... as you said... can be turned off and the ones who are worth it will be there even if they cant visit every day

I hope you told Mac that I elected him Vice President

HUGS AND LOVE
