Well, what with bad backs and mystery rashes I've been a little bit late in acknowledging and passing on two awards which have been given to me over the past month. This is rude of me, especially considering how pleased and flattered I am that people would choose to give me such things! First, from the lovely Louise, from Months of Edible Celebrations I got an Inspiration Award. Louise is a fellow book collector, and her blog is choc full of really interesting information and recipes from America's past, and a real insight into what they ate across the pond, in times of yore. Thank you Louise!
Next, Niki from Rural Writings (a really great Canadian blog, full of tips for simple living and great recipes...she's a baker all right!) gave me this Friendship Award. Given to those who
"... are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. "
Isn't that jolly nice? I'm umming and arring about passing on these awards properly OR doing my usual and giving the award to those blogs on my side bar. Aah! I think I'll do my usual. I wouldn't come and visit if I didn't think you were all good sorts and inspirational to boot. Enjoy your awards fellow huswiyves!
Oh, but before you go. Here's what I plan to do this afternoon...get the washing on the line and then settle down with my knitting to watch this GREAT movie on TCM. Here's the gorgeous Gene and the lovely Leslie doing their wonderful stuff in American in Paris...yes, they DO deserve such superlatives!
