just plain fun to read

the multi-talented willow received this "just plain fun to read" blog award today. and she so deserves it. her blog is packed with bits of art, poetry, book and movie reviews, wonderful photos, recipes and a ghost story now and then. she is usually the first blog i read every day and often the last one i visit before shutting down the trusty mac at the end of the night. plus, her blog roll is chock full of other fun blogs to visit.

in true "pass it on" spirit, willow nominated several people to receive this "just plain fun to read" award and i am honored to be one of them. thanks, willow! as always, you made my day!
so, i'm passing it on as well. my nominees are:

quaint handmade

the charm school dropout

29 black street

a little birdie told me so

crossroads cottage

thanks, ladies, for your inspiration, sense of humor, support and creativity!!!

i'm adding the award as a button on my sidebar and hope each of you do as well!!

Julie, thank you so much. I know we all strive to make our blogs interesting and I am thrilled when people enjoy mine. Isn't blogging fun? I always wanted a penpal when I was young. Now I have many!

I come your way through Steviewren. She is such a neat person and I love her art. I have read your last few posts and I am challenged to get busy and make art. I am a closet artist and I think I would be feeling free and light if I worked more at my art. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me. I will be back for visits.

first, congratulations on your nomination! i'm glad i found your blog and especially love your work and poems.

and, thank you for nominating our blog! we'd like to thank the "just plain fun to read" academy, you, our computer, the electricity that powers it, etc. ;). we always wanted to win an oscar, but since we're not actors it's unlikely. this is way better anyway!

xo, cindy
