Accolades: twice as nice & then some!

My little blog's gotten another award -- twice!

The lovely & gracious Hillary from Happiness, Health, and Looking Fab! as well as the adorable and enchanting Lady D from Africana 's Wardrobe Diary have each generously given me this sweet award within days of each other. I am truly delighted and feel doubly blessed by your kindness -- thank you both so much! Each of you is someone I have a high regard for so I am especially flattered.

They both received the award from the ultra stylish blog, Fashion Therapist. It reads as follows:

"Blogs who receive this award are "exceedingly charming," says it's authors. This award is a fine one because it focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this online-world. "This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY--nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into into the body of their award."

My chosen 8 blogs to pass this award on to are:

notSupermum -- wit, wonder & wisdom from the most fit mom I know
workthatwardrobe -- imaginative, creative and utterly inspirational
Shallow Coffee -- clever & sassy with a touch of introspection for good measure
School Gate Chic -- a stunning SAHM who can kick fashionable ass ;)
Of A Certain Age -- chock full of gorgeous style for all ages
Fickle Brown Sparrow -- lovely little touches & grace beyond her years
Already Pretty -- true beauty comes from within & this blog positively glows
Le Belette Rouge -- totally amazing writing, from poignant to humorous & everywhere in between

I find your blogs inspirational, funny, well-written & altogether lovable -- thank you for contributing so much of yourselves to the blogosphere, we are richer for your presence.

And now, for the "and then some" part of this post:

Another one of my very favorite blogs is Ephemera, and the wonderfully talented Sheila is someone I admire greatly, both for her style & as a person. She recently did a wonderful & clever post where she lists some of her fave blogs with a personal description of each one. I was HUGELY flattered to have made that list, and what she wrote about "Fashionably Later" just tickled me beyond words. Thank you Sheila, your mention of my blog was just as good as any traditional blog award and was extra special for your personal touch. Rock on yourself :)

Thus ends the giving & receiving of accolades for now. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart for all the love & support, it really means so much!
