Sharing the Love

A few weeks ago Susan over at West of Mars very generously awarded me the Blogging Star award. (I'd have preferred that she award me an evening with ShapeShifter, but I suppose that would be greedy so I'll just say thank you for the award and shut up...) The Blogging Star was created by Barb of Skittles' Place, who says:

This award is for bloggers who shine their light throughout the Blogosphere. Some do it with humor, others with creativity, and others with their kind and thoughtful natures. We all know more than a few of them so why not give them some recognition?
Here's what to do if you receive this:

* Proudly display it on your blog along with a link to who gave it to you.
* Mention that it originated here at Skittles' Place so I can follow its journey.
* Pass it on to any blogger(s) you think should have it.
Thank you Susan, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Now it's my turn to share the warm fuzzies. I'd like to share them this time with three blogs that are still fairly new to me but that have captured a place in my heart, and on my daily read list:

Kelley from Magneto Bold Too - one of the funniest bloggers I've read lately. She actually found me, and I'm delighted that she did. Kelley lets it all hang out, no holds barred, and manages to find humor in even the most difficult situations. Also, her kitchen is stocked with many of the same gadgets as mine, so you know she's got impecable taste.

Lea of Tales From The Labyrinth - her work simply takes my breath away
Helena from Thrice Blessed Momma - for incredible strength and grace, and for knowing that all mommas work better with an occasional night off

Nu, why are you still here? You should be off reading these three wonderful blogs! Get outta here! Scram! Go read!

I love your photo of the coffee cup with your name. Is that a private photo or is it one in the public domain ?
My husbands name is Robin & he's a coffee addict so I'd love to surprise him with a photo like this.

It's from Image Chef ( and it's free. You put whatever text you like into any of a bunch of images. Surprise away :).

Thanks for introducing me to two great blogs (I already enjoy Lea's blog - her work just makes my jaw drop). And Congratulations!
