Unexpected Pleasure

Sometimes beautiful things happen unexpectedly,
like flowers suddenly blooming...



...and fellow bloggers giving you awards.


I was very grateful to receive a You Make My Day Award from the lovely Riggwelter, over at Jazzy Crafts


and an Art Award from my blog friend indigoblue

I'm really touched. Thank you!

The rules of the You Make My Day Award are:
"Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times."
and, for the Art Award:
"Post the award on your own blog.(Post who gave it to you)
Indicate its original link and link to that site. (The Award originally came fromArte Y Pico's Blog at,
http://artepico.blogspot.com/
from Uruguay)
Give the Award to 5 other blogs that you enjoy, find creative and inspire you."

I am going to present both Awards to:
Rachelle at Magpie Girl for writing with such sensitivity and helping to build a nourishing community ~ Small Is Beautiful,
Leah at Creative Everyday for her beautiful drawing and her lovely community, which is so inspiring,
Ellen at Los Angeles Is My Beat for her generosity and amazing creative output,
Peta at Createcraft for thought provoking, intelligent posts, beautiful craftwork and fabulous links,
Christina at Matroschka for her beautiful photography, fantastic etsy links, and the vicarious pleasure she provides by documenting how she is decorating her swish new apartment,
Kate at knights don't knit for her sense of fun and her incredible generosity (sometime very soon I'm going to post about the gorgeous gifts she gave me in a tea cosy swap),
Carola at my living room for organising the granny along blogspot which has brought me so much inspiration, motivation and connection,
and Lisamoon at dances on the moon for her honesty and lyricism and joyfulness (even in the midst of difficult life transitions).
I'd like to return the favour and award
Riggwelter at Jazzy Crafts for her warmth and beautiful knitting,
and indigoblue for her kindness and industriousness.

I really appreciate Blogland. I love how inspired I am by you all!

Aw, thanks honey! I got this Award from BumpyDoink as well a while back, so I'm going to really have to think about who to award back this time!

But then again, your blog is definitely among my favorites (or it wouldn't be on my blogroll) so right back at you, girl! I visit you all the time and enjoy it immensely!

*hugs*

Just found your blog through the Small is Beautiful site and what a treat! I'll have to take some more time visiting, but I just thought I'd say hello. AND I love, love, LOVE your little washcloth below! Green and dark turquoise are my favorite colors and together? magical!
