Inspiration – Awards and stuff

I apologise for the delay on a post about all these wonderful awards that have been bestowed upon me!

I am so grateful for these blogging trophies, and appreciate every single one…

As I also appreciate every single reader; all my (over 200) followers, all those who leave a comment or press the Like button, and everyone who simply stops by for a look now and then.


Now the awards…

First of all, thank you to for sending me the Inspiring Blog Award! Me? Inspiring? Well, all I can say is, I have been inspired by all your amazing blogs!

Melody’s photos of wonderful flowers, and her words and poetry on life and nature are very inspiring. Thanks Melody!


Then Robin at bringingeuropehome.comΒ  and Tj at sent me an award called theΒ Very Inspiring Award. Thank you Robin! Thank you Tj!

Robin’s blog is certainly very inspiring, with wonderful photos of her time spent in Europe, recipes, and her “Quotes from the masters” challenge every week.

Tj also shows us beautiful photos – her garden in southern Arizona, with its hot and dry climate is the inspiration for her informative and interesting posts on the plants and wildlife there.


Next, Carine atΒ  Bookscupcakescats.wordpress.comΒ  nominated me for three (!)Β awards all in one go! The Lovely Blog, On Fire, and Addictive Blog Awards!

Thank you Carine!

Carine has a versatile and lively blog – a platform displaying her love for America and New York (as an immigrant from Paris!), as well as good books and beautifully photographed food. A very lovely blog Carine!Β


Dan at sent me the Illuminating Blogger Award a couple of weeks ago. Thanks Dan!

Dan is an aspiring writer; studying creative writing. Dan’s blog is his outlet for thought-provoking (and fun!) poetry, and a wealth ofΒ  illuminating ideas and thoughts on life and happiness.


Finally, gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award AND TheΒ  Reader Appreciation Award! Thank you Nutsfortreasure!
