Lovely and Beautiful

Clarissa Draper at Listen to the Voices has presented me with the One Lovely Blog Award. Thanks, Clarissa. It's lovely!


I can truly see why Clarissa won this award. Her blog is not only gorgeous, but it's filled with loads of good stuff for writers. Check it out.

Again, I don't need to do anything other than pass this award along to five others with Lovely Blogs. I choose:

Claudia at Claudia Del Balso, Writer
Jan at Crazy Jane
Sharde at Realm of Randomness
Shirley at Clever Chronicles
Teresa at Journaling Woman

All of these blogs are beautiful and wonderful with the unique perspective of their authors. I hope you'll visit.

Speaking of lovely, we've all heard the old saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So I'll leave you with Miss Piggy's version:

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye."

Wish I'd said that.

If only I had the time for reading all the lovely blogs there are. But even if I don`t, I consider myself to be part of this wonderful tapestry of thoughtful bloggers, and I`m glad I can always turn to my favorite weavers.
Funny, Carol, that we think so much alike, isn`t it? Considering the distance and all our differences? Thanks for your comment!

Claudia said...

Dear Carol,
You are so sweet! Thank you awarding my blog ;) That's very nice of you.
I'll share it with my fellow bloggers.
