My, oh my, just look at this beauty! What an honor to be nominated for this scrumptious award by the ever sweet and talented Edrian Thomidis. Thank you so much, Edrian, for your unwavering support and inspiration. The great Diana Evans created this award. As she says,

"I am giving this award to all the wonderful people that I visit almost every day....they have inspired me and shared their wonderful lives with all of us....
I only ask that you nominate some of the wonderful people you visit each and every day...."

So I, in turn, would like to give this award to the following bloggers who have warmed my heart with their wonderful stories and creations, and who I am happy to consider as friends. Spread the love, baby, spread the love.

Bella, thank you. You are such a honey. I proudly displayed it with a backlink to your blog. By the way, did you illustrate this Friday's theme? My drawing today reminded me of you because of the children.
