Fabulous Blog Award

I just received recognition from Stella at in the form of a "Fabulous Blog Award" for Vicki Lane Mysteries.

Even though the picture is so not me, I really appreciate this award and am paying it forward. Here are five picks -- some of the most frequent posters of the blogs I follow:

1.) Here, Where I Am
2.) Thatchwick Cottage
3.) Musings From Fairlight Farm
4. The Writers Porch
5. Meanderings and Muses

These five are invited to pass along the award. The rules (not mine, they came with the award): You must pass it on to 5 other Fabulous Bloggers in a post. You may find their email addresses on their Profile page or, if not available, post as a "Comment" to their latest post.

You must include the person that gave you the award, and link it back to them. You must list 5 of your Fabulous addictions in the post.
You must copy and paste these rules in the post.
Right click the award icon & save to your computer then post with your own awards.To my way of thinking, this is not only a nice tribute, it widens the reading audience.

5 of my Fabulous Addictions (not in any particular order): writing, reading, gardening, sunrises, digital camera

So, there we are. There are other equally worthy blogs that I check every day -- I just grabbed these for a variety of reasons -- poetry, South African flora and fauna, Shetland sheep, book talk, and more book talk -- mainly mysteries.

And thanks, Stella!

LOVE the willow mug on your sidebar!

Vicki Lane said...

Thank you, Carol!

And Willow -- of course I love your blog but as you are already so Very well known and rich in followers, I passed on the FBA to some others that I love too

The willow mug is (I think I remember this) a Smithsonian reproduction of a Canton ware piece in their collection. It's good and heavy and holds the heat well.

Oh my. How lovely! Thank you, Vicki. This from a woman (that would be me) who wasn't interested in blogs, didn't read blogs, would "never" do a blog of her own. LOL! Now I better understand that old saw "never say never." And to be in the company of some of my newly discovered, very favorite blogs - thanks to you and your wonderful blog spot - is beyond cool.

Kaye -- You jumped in with both feet, girl! Way to go!

Vicki, after you gave Kathryn the Fabulous Blog award she passed it on to me. I've just passed it to five others on my most recent post. French food authority Julia Child used to say, "Cooking together is such fun." I'm no Julia but I'm changing her phrase a bit. "Blogging together is such fun."

I enjoy your blog and will visit again soon.
