Long Lost Award
I found an award! The lovely Book Quoter gave me The Prêmio Dardos award a few weeks ago and in all the chaos of coming home I managed to lose it. I just rediscovered it. Sometimes when I can't think what to write I go prowling through old posts, reading comments, hunting for a spark, a thread, a pebble, a path, a cottage in the glen. But today, poof: an award. It was like finding a curly beribboned, polka dot wrapped present on my doorstep this morning. How very lovely.
So (I copied this from the Book Quoter's wonderful blog which you must go and visit immediately if you have never been),
"The Prêmio Dardos is a way to acknowledge the importance of bloggers committed with spreading cultural, ethical, literary and personal values, showing their thoughts are alive through their letters and words."
Not sure I deserve it straight after I write a post about my nasty eavesdropping habit but nevermind, on we go. Thank you lovely Book Quoter for thinking of me.
The Book Quoter passed the award on to fifteen blogs and so I shall follow in happy suit. If it is alright I will divide the spoils into thirds and only pass it on to five today--is that allowed? No idea.
So, the First Third:
doctordi at http://doctordi.wordpress.com/. Her wonderful writing is saucy and true and full of fun. Be careful, her writing is addicting!
Mari at http://www.bookwormwithaview.com/. She is amazingly a writing, reviewing, reading, marathoning mom with an exceptionally lovely narrative voice. Anyone who can run that much, read that much and write that well will quickly get my attention.
Mademoiselle Poirot at http://mademoiselle-poirot.blogspot.com/. A daily must for me. Her sumptuous blend of Paris and London style and gorgeous photos are a wrapped in toile, lit by sunlight, perfumed with honeysuckle and macaroons moment for me.
Kathy at http://kathylovestoread.blogspot.com/. She collects new words and enjoys books in a down to the bone, draw out every drop sort of way. I love that.
Kals at http://atpemberley.blogspot.com/. I know I have mentioned this before but a weekly dose of Tagore? Genius. Plus a beautiful, sensitive way of moving through books and bring readers along for the ride. Can't beat that.
Thank you again to the lovely, generous, present bearing, Book Quoter.
