Premio Dardos

Thanks to Bo Parker over at Cobbledstones who passed on this award for “recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."

Oh my goodness. And here I just thought I was writing about chickens and old pictures and books and dogs and stuff -- and taking pictures kind of as if you were walking alongside me and I was saying, 'Oh! Look at that!"

But I'm glad Bo enjoys my blog and my pictures and I'll pass this along to five more bloggers I enjoy.

Laurey Bikes The adventures of Laurey, a popular Asheville chef and caterer, riding her bike cross-country in company with other intrepid women to raise money to aid in the fight against ovarian cancer. I don't know Laurey, though I've enjoyed her food on several occasions and read and enjoyed her culinary memoir Elsie's Biscuits, but I'm vicariously following her adventure.

My Carolina Kitchen -- despite the name, it's quite a lot about food in France -- yum.

Reader Wil -- lovely pictures from Amsterdam and beyond. And Reader Wil's personal story is fascinating.

Urban Amish
-- more quilt talk from a quilter and fabric designer

Willow Manor -- an immensely popular and beautiful blog. Everyone would like to go have tea with Willow!

These bloggers are invited to copy the image to their own blogs and pass it on to others. Or not -- as they choose. They may be like me, running out of blogs they follow and running out of time to follow new ones.

Signing off from Bowling Green . . .

Congratulations on another accolade. I do identify with your comment about running out of time to comment on the blogs one follows. I have been unable to get round to 'visiting' for a week and feel quite guilty. But it is nice to be back in Blogland again. I have still to look for your quilting book on Amazon. The Writer's Porch told me that your creative talents run beyond mystery stories to quilting. How wonderful!

Hi Vicki! Kudos on the well deserved award! And thank you so much for passing it along to me. I'm very honored, dear bloggy friend! You've brightened my day!:D

Reader Wil said...

Congratulations on this award, Vicky! Thank you also for the honour you gave me to send me this award. I should like to send it to 5 others, but as you said:" it is time consuming"! Besides I enjoy visiting everybody who comes to see me!You will have noticed that I stored all the awards I got in my library. I appreciate the friends who sent them to me very much. Coming by my blog is award enough for me! Hugs! Wil

There are so many wonderful blogs out there -- and you three are some of the best. But there's only so much time in real life . . .
