I would like to say a big thank you to Rick at Palm Springs Savant for awarding me the Creative Blogger Award. Many thanks Rick. I appreciate that. In turn I would like to pass this award onto some of my fellow bloggers. There are so many good blogs out there, this was a difficult choice.

For their wonderful talent in creating new and unusual paper dolls and designs, I’d like to pass this award onto Janey Loree and her mum Phyllis, two very talented ladies at PJ's Paper Doll Cut Outs

For her wonderful, inspirational posts and beautiful photos, Marion at Herbal Connection

For the great recipes and wonderful, interesting posts, Jackie at The Vegan Diet and Herbs 'n' Oils

For his wonderful and sometimes very funny articles, some of which wouldn’t be out of place in fishing or boating magazines, Sank at Old and In the Way

For his well written and interesting posts on everyday life and what it means to be a Christian in today’s busy society, Alastair a Vicar and fellow Brit at New Kid on the Blog

For the wonderful photos he posts and the great carnivals he organises (I’ll be doing a Gonzo carnival with him myself), Kilroy at Fear and Loathing - The Gonzo Papers

For their great writing skills:-

The Gatekeeper at Pieces of Me

Sharon Lynn at California Breeze

Sheila at Alabama Kitchen Sink

Well done to you all!


Marion said...

Thank you so much, Naomi! You have named many of my favourite bloggers. I'm off to visit the ones I don't know...thanks for the great list!

You definitely deserved this award...I love reading your site!

Naomi said...

Thanks Marion. I love your site too. Your posts are always so well written and interesting. You have a brilliant writing style and the ability to transport the reader to anywhere within the realms of your imagination. Not many people have that talent.

Janey Loree said...

Thank you Naomi! My mum and I are honored!! I agree with you on Marion's writing style and ability to transport the reader.

I just realized that I have been to all of these blogs, although it has been awhile for some of them. I will follow Marion's lead and visit them to congratulate them on their award!!!

Naomi said...

You and your mum are very welcome Janey. Yes Marion is a very talented lady, like yourself. There are some wonderful blogs here Janey. I know what you mean. It's just finding time to read them all!

Sharon Lynne said...

You are so kind. Thank you so much, Naomi.

Relating o your recent comment on Beatrix Potter. I would love to visit her farm some day. Have you ever been there?

Well...I'm off to pay a visit to the honored bloggers!

Sheila said...

Many thanks Naomi. I'm going to have to check out a few of the ones I haven't visited. This means a lot coming from you.

Sank said...

Now that I'm back in the swing of things.. Thank you so much for your kind nomination, I'm humbled to be in the company of some really great writing.

I have to say, the "pay" I get for this little hobby is the connections I've made to folks like yourself around the world via these little windows into peoples thoughts.

Thank you!

Naomi said...

You're welcome Sharon. I always enjoy my visits to your blog. No I've never been to Beatrix Potter's farm but I'm visiting Bowness next weekend which boasts the World of Beatrix Potter as one of its attractions.

That's very kind Sheila. Your blog was one of the first I visited when I joined Blog Village. I love your posts. They are always interesting.

Sank you deserve the nomination. Your blog is full of humourous, well written posts. I think one of the biggest rewards of blogging is meeting new cyberfriends around the world.

Jackie said...

Thanks so much Naomi, it's always great to get an award :)

Naomi said...

You are very welcome Jackie. Hope you enjoyed your break. We've missed you!

congratulation Naomi !!

The Gatekeeper said...

Thanks, Naomi, bloggie friends like you make it all worth while. What's this about Beatrix Potter's Farm???

Naomi said...

You are very welcome Gatekeeper. Yes Beatrix Potter's first home was Hill Top Farm, bought with the proceeds of some of her early books. It was also the inspiration for some of her stories, including The Tale of Samuel Whiskers and Tom Kitten. Beatrix Potter actually devoted much of her later life to farming and left Hill Top Farm to the National Trust on her death, so it would remain unspoilt. You can read more about it by following the links on my site.

I was a bit late picking up my award. Thanks much.

Looks like reviewing back over received comments can be a good thing. (Check out the post!)

All your support is appreciated.

Better late than never Kilroy!
