Glittering Prizes

I have been selected for not one, but two  blog awards by the exceptionally good-looking, talented and witty illustrator and writer, Thomas Taylor of That Elusive Line.  (Well I know, but if you are going to do nepotism you might as well go the whole hog)  Seriously though, thank you, Thomas, it’s a great start to the week.

Kreativ Blogger

This elevation does come with its own responsibilities though, which are as follows,

1. Copy and paste the pretty picture which you see above onto your own blog.

2. Thank the person who gave you the award and post a link to their blog.

3. Write 7 things about yourself we do not know.

4. Choose 7 other bloggers to award.

5. Link to those 7 other bloggers.

6. Notify your 7 bloggers.

Firstly though, I have to spill the beans, so here goes…

  1. The real me is actually just like Donna in’ Mamma Mia’, I just keep it well hidden.
  2. I have an ironing pile the size of a small Alp, but I’d much rather iron and fold pieces of patchwork fabric.(and then arrange them in colour co-ordinated piles and photograph them)
  3. I waste far too much time playing ‘Bejewelled’ on FaceBook.
  4. I am a closet Trekkie.  Star Trek –The Next Generation for me, and Jean Luc Picard is mine, all mine.
  5. In an ideal world I would have a room full of shoes, ‘Sex in the City shoes’, the higher the better.  (In this world I have duff knees and wear Crocs and Fitflops)
  6. I read diet books while eating chocolate digestives.
  7. I fight a daily battle against procrastination (and invariably lose)

After much deliberation I would like to give my seven awards (in no particular order) to:

Celia at Purple Podded Peas – talented print maker and gardener, with furry studio assistants and feathered under-gardeners.

Vanessa at Do You Mind if I Knit – colourful and chatty, nice with a cup of tea

Gina at Fan My Flame – Textile artist working on Art degree, a similar direction to the one I’ve taken

Geraldine and Jessamy at Smitonius and Sonata – Mother and daughter collaboration, on my wave length.

Lucy at Attic 24 – for a colour infusion

Teena at Kitschen Pink Was my very first ‘commenter’ when I had just dipped my toe in the water.  Teena’s colourful blog inspired me to continue.

Jane at Jane and the ducks – a little taste of ‘French chic’


These are the rules for the Superior Scribbler Award:

3.Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.

4.Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!

5.Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Rachel at Slow Lane Life – witty and amusing writing, lovely photos

Warda at 64sq ft Kitchen – beautiful evocative writing and delicious recipes

Tania at Myrtle and Eunice – Family life and Stitching in Australia

Knitting Iris – Knitting, Stitching and self sufficiency in Montana,  Beautiful photos

Kate at Greedy for Colour Crafting in New Zealand

This was all quite daunting when I started trying to sort it all out.  (Thomas cheated- I thought he was better brought up than that! but it did mean I got two awards so I can’t complain)  For me it’s actually been a good way to say thank you to these nominated bloggers for adding an extra dimension to my days, and aiding that procrastination habit!

  1. Hurrah! congratulations – I got nominated two, too!

    Your shoe comment made me chuckle!

    • Congratulations to you too, maybe we’d better pop over to Thomas’s and have a glass of that virtual wine!

  2. oo-er! Thanks!

    Right… should be an interesting mother daughter collaboration on the responses… Perhaps there are things we don’t know about eachother let alone our readers (no, surely not!).


  3. I’ll second that ….the Thankyou , I mean . Perhaps we’ll surprise each other ! Sonata

  4. I’m still waiting for a stern letter from the Internet Award Police. Well done for processing all this so quickly — it took me ages to write my post.

    If your ironing looks like an Alp to you, just imagine what Higgins thinks!

  5. Thank you Penny… I’ll try to get around to doing something about this very soon!

  6. Oh Penny! You are nice! Thank you so much for the award. I have a terrible track record of sticking to my side of the bargain with these things, I have to admit. Will do my best to do my bit though. Thanks Penny! Love Vanessa xxx

  7. Oh Penny, I love fact number 2!

    It made me laugh so much (my ironing pile must be about the size of Mount Everest)!

  8. Thank you, thank you!!!

    I promise I’ll join in (but it may take a few days…)

    Celia (H)

  9. Oh very sweet of you – my blushing thank yous! We seem to have a lot of procrastinatory Alp issues in common…

  10. Thank you for my award! But it may take a little time to do as I’m bid – this new Mac defeats me sometimes, and posting that little award icon on my own blog is proving beyond me at present. But I’m tickled to receive it, regardless.
