Thank you Julie!

I was given this award by Julie King Original Art. Julie, I appreciate your kind words and want to pass this award along on other more deserving blogs. Like I told her, when I was young I always wanted to have a penpal. After 45 years, I've received my wish. I exchange ideas with people all over the planet thanks to the internet. I love reading about your parts of the world and your lives. Thanks for inviting me into you homes and hearts.

I would like to pass this award along to just a few of my favorite blogs to read:

Bush Babe
(in Granite Glen, Australia)

Life is Funny Like That ( in the Northwest? the Midwest? Where are you Debby?)

The Birdbath Chronicles
( in Toronto)

The Smitten Image (also in Toronto)

Mille Fiori Favoriti
(in New York, NY)

Your blogs are always fun, informative and thought provoking to read!

This award was designed by Out & About in New York City.

And just for the record. I posted 3 times today!


  1. Wow, three times...a record as you say, and each post worth the read. Now...thank you so much! An award, and such a cute looking trophy...

    I am pleased and honoured and tickled. By the way, I am familiar with the other blogs which share the award, and add my agreement that they are all terrific reads.

    Thank you again, Steviewren...

  8. Thanks so much Steviewren... I am very honoured... amazes me that people take the time to check in and see what is happening in my corner of the globe. But kinda reassuring too... just been trawling a bit through yours. Gorgeous.

  9. Congratulations on such a nice award!
    Oh my, Steviewren -- you are too kind to present it to me --- your encouragement means a lot to me -- Thanks so much!

  10. I have said before I come here for your art work and your words. You do make me think, your blog is thought provoking and artistic!
    Congratulations on your award!
    I will take the time to visit the other winners!

  11. Thank you, Stevie. By the by, I am from northwestern Pennsylvania. It is fun to 'know' other people, and to get acquainted with other ways of thinking.

  12. Congratulations!

    You've been recognized again. See my blog.

  13. Thanks Mod Girl, I'm on my way over there. And thank you for the recognition.

    Debby, northwestern Pennsylvania, I say as I smack my forehead. Of course! I've sort of been up your way before. My oldest lived in Wintersboro,OH and East Liverpool,OH before moving on to Cleveland...anyway I digress...we visited Pittsburgh a couple of times. Now I can read a map so I know this probably isn't anywhere near you...but it is a lot closer than I am now....


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
