This morning I would like to thank my good friend, Odie, over at The Simple Life for passing on an Award which is new to me - The Good Bloggers Pay It Forward Award. I'm sure that most of my bloggy friends know Odie, but, if you don't, please go over and say Hi. Odie is a very kind man and an inspiration to many of us, as he tries to live the simple life with his lovely wife Linda, and his gorgeous little dog called Rocky!
The rules for receiving this Award are to post the Award at the top of the page,(check!) link up with the person who handed it to you (check!) and then pass it on to FIVE bloggy friends. (check!). (Phew, thank goodness I haven't got to list more things about myself!!).
This is always the hard bit, but today I am going to pass it on to some different people, whose blogs always give me great pleasure. For the people I have nominated, please forgive me if you are an Award Free Blog, but I can't always tell! Here goes :
Maureen over at Daydream Living. Maureen always posts such beautiful photos of homes and interiors, and also writes some very wise words.
Chatty Crone - her blog is always humorous, with some great quotes and funny cartoons.
Donna over at Discovering The Purpose of Our Lives. Donna writes some lovely poetry also has another Blog called Mystical Journeys where she talks about her family and, in particular, her beloved dad who has Alzheimers.
Linda over at flowers on my table - Linda also posts some gorgeous photos and writes about her ideas on furniture, flowers, food and finery.
Melody at melody-mae - Melody wants us all to be 'shiny' and writes some very inspiring posts on joy, love and happiness.
I would just like to add that all the above are really good bloggy friends, and I'm sure they would love it if you were to pay them a visit. Thank you!
