Friday Flattery



Today, I got a message from SugarLoveHoney

You can also visit her blog here. She makes pillowcase dresses, tutus, and other cute items and sells them in her Etsy shop. I think I like this creation of hers best:

She let me know that she had nominated me for the "Brillante Blog award." Yay for me! I've had my blog for about 14 months and written over 300 posts. I'm honored to be noticed. I'm also thrilled each time I notice one more of you has subscribed to read my blog or takes the time to comment on it.



Since I was an English major in college, I want to point out that the term "Brillante" actually means brilliantly (I believe it's a music term like andante or allegro). I had to check that to be sure, it's been along time since I actually studied English.

Now it's my turn to pass this award onto some other lucky bloggers. And this was hard, I currently have 64 blogs on my blogroll. Here are my nominees. Realize though, there's no cash (or other tangible) reward that comes with this Brillante award, just know you have me reading and enjoying your blogs.
1) Berlin's Whimsy
2) Derfwad Manor
3) a Friend to knit with
4) Grumperina goes to local yarn shops and Home Depot
5) house on hill road
6) Freda's Hive
7) Winemakerssister
Most but not all of these are "crafty" blogs. On second thought, they are all "crafty" in their own way but many of them show you things that are created from yarn and fabric and such.

Here are the "how to's" for those who were nominated and who want to perpetuate the Brillante award...(totally your choice, I always hated chain letters myself.)

1) Add the logo of the award to your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs
