  1. Not only is this a fabulous blog, but I happen to believe you are pretty fabulous I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award!:-)

    Ahh yes, you mentioned some of my favorite things... purring kittens and fresh clean sheets, which go rather nicely together, especially in they laundry basket... at least they think so! :-)

    I heartily agree on all of your dislikes too, and will add one more... narrowmindedness...people who are intolerant of others!

  2. Josie, I know you don't accept awards. I no longer do, so this is my last. I couldn't refuse Brenda; she was very supportive when I began blogging. Thanks, Brenda! Hug!

  3. P.S. Good one, on intolerance! I guess that goes with rudeness!

  4. Congratulations ... what a wonderful surprise for you. You are indeed deserving ... and thank you for passing it on to me. I happily accept your thoughtfulness.

    Andrea @ From the Sol

    1. Andrea, thank you. I didn't want to overwhelm you or make you feel obligated. :)

  5. Congratulations on a well deserved award!

  6. Well I am glad you accepted this one because it gave me at little more info on a new friend :} YOU are very deserving and I love popping by your blog.

    1. Janice, the feeling is mutual. I will accept awards, sparingly. The people (like Brenda & you) make it special for me. Thank you. Hug.
