Just Call Me Kate Winslet

I have just received the following award from 2 fantastic bloggers, Lisa at Antiques and More and Patti at Delighted Heart. After reading the award and what it means I'm thrilled beyond belief. It states-It's the "Proximidade" award. This award focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the Proximity to one another through this on-line world(kind of a six degrees of separation sort of thing). "Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors. This blog invests and believes in the Proximity-nearness in space, time and relationships.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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award." WHEW!!! That's a mouthful and some. I truly do thank you, Lisa and Patti, for thinking of me in this way. The 8 that I've selected are everything that is said above. It's not about fame or fortune(which BTW,there is none) but just about the sheer joy of everyday life and living it their way. They're not out to impress anybody (although they do me) or tallying the day's comments(which don't get me wrong are nice to get), but just about having fun. Fun in each of their own unique ways which always makes for a fun read for us.(and it's free!). So here are my 8. Drum roll please!

1. Debi at The Junkin YaYa-Beautiful shopowner extraordinaire

2. Sue at Bella Shabby-Clever, clever lady with a twist of sweetness

3. Cheryl at Cheryl's Fascinating Finds-Fantastic finds that make me giddy

4. Debra at English Cottage Collection-Lovely photos and bubbly posts

5. Lulu and Laurie at 2 Chippys (which also counts as 2)-A double martini on line

6. Pam at Frippery-Her Highness of words

7. Karen and Malissa at Moonlight Hollow-Another naughty dynamic duo

8. Amy at Whisperwood Cottage-Purveyor and repurposer of forgotten things

All of these ladies including Lisa and Patti are different, but each one is having a blast doing what they do best and loving their lives. They are among the first to leave a funny comment, offer up a prayer, and toot a horn for you. Please visit them and prepare to be amazed.

Dear Kate: Your ballgown was beautiful...although we thought it would be pink or leopard! I can't believe you got to sit between Leonardo and Cat Daddy! You were awfully nervous the other night...for the experienced actress you are! Congratulations on your beautiful award...and thank you for recognizing us in your acceptance speech...we have ALWAYS wanted to be acknowledged during an awards ceremony...and now we have! You are a sweetheart, Kate...and if you see Trash Talk, please give her a big hug and tell her "She's QUEEN of the world!"

Your fans,
Malisa and Karen

WTF, so sorry Miss Trash, I can't believe you have awarded us. We just love you for that. We have been busier than a one leggid, man in a ass kicking contest trying to get ready for Lakewood. But, that you most gracious Queen. Your honey baked ham, Lauri
