Today I was honored to receive the Bella Sinclair Award from Sarah at Cottage Garden Studio. On her blog, Sarah explains that this award was originally created by Ces of Ces And Her Dishes for Bella of Bella Sinclair Doodlespot. I borrowed a quote of Ces from Sarah's blog where Ces explains the meaning of the award:
In Ces's words..."I designed this award to celebrate art in the blogs and to honor the value of friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring. It is to be awarded to the gifted, accomplished, eloquent and talented blogger whose friendship and influence inspire us to do our best. That I named it after Bella Sinclair is because she epitomizes all of these things. She is an inspiration to many of us." "
Thank you again, dear Sarah, for thinking of me.
I have never received a blog award before, but from what I have observed it is encumbant upon the recipient to pass it on. I would like to pass the Bella Sinclair Award on to:
Alaine of eclectique in Australia
Friko of Friko's Musings in Great Britain
Rose Marie of APOGEE Poet in New York State
There are so many others to whom I would like to have passed on this award, but thought I would limit it to ones who, like myself, do not seem to have received one yet. (Perhaps, they have and have not posted them on their blog - but from what I can see they are award virgins like myself.) I was also limited by the word "sisterhood" in the award, so that I did not pass it on to some male blogger friends that I think are equally deserving. Not to worry - your time will come!
