Thank You

Recently, Rebecca of Ladies Historical Tea Society gave me the Arte y Pico award

and last night Cynthia from Muse Swings honored me with her own Blog in Bloom award.

I am quite honored to have been recognized by both of these kind women who have amazing blogs themselves. I am continually astonished by the diversity and individuality found in this community of bloggers. We are drawn together by our mutual interests in movies, the arts, travel, tea, pets, photography, food and thought provoking factoids and snippets of nostalgic information. Our individuality allow us to contribute things that no one else might know or have thought to share.

Dear readers, I recognize that each of you deserves to receive a reward for your efforts and success in making the blogosphere a daily place of wonder and interest for me and for every person who finds their way to your internet homes.

So this post is my thanks to all of you.
Thank you for teaching me something new each day. Thanks for sharing a portion your family life with me. Thanks for showing me your best photos, your best china and do-dads, your artwork and your hearts. I appreciate the effort you put into visiting my blog and participating in a regular dialog with me. I hope I do the same for you.


  1. I think we both started blogging about the same time. I was an avid blog reader, but commenting was all new to me. You were one of my first "blog pals".
    I look forward to seeing what everyone posts. I especially like that it takes me all around the country and out of the country, in a matter of minutes!
    Congratulations on all your awards!

  2. Congrats on your awards! You certainly deserve them. I love reading your blogs and you have truly inspired me to get back into my art. For that I will be forever grateful. I pray God will richly bless you!

  3. Congratulations Steviewren. Your blog deserves all the accolades and awards. The text and photos, varied topics, artistry, and range of eclectic interests on your blog is very entertaining. And through it all, your warmth and humour shines.

  4. Thank you ladies for your compliments, but I really think it is you all who deserve the awards. In my mind the blogosphere is a place of symbiotic relationships, where each one is feed and nurtured by the attention and accolades of others. I draw and write because I want too, but I blog about these things because you are there, you look and listen. My desire is to support you in the same way.

  5. congratulations! Well deserved awards and I thank you do to make us all feel welcome!


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