Floating on a Breese

Oh my! Look what just blew in! The incredibly gifted and hilarious Peter Breese created this bit of awesomeness, and I am absolutely over the moon to receive it. Hot out of the oven! Peter's adroit ability to forge colors and shapes into fantastic and sometimes highly intricate images is a feast for the eyes. Thank you, Peter. This is a high honor.

The coveted Breese Award is given to six inspirational individuals. I'm so sorry, Peter. I could not contain myself with six. But at least I kept it an even number.


TO THE RECIPIENTS: please select six new inspirational folks, give them a shiny new Breese Award –clean off any Champagne or similar celebratory stains – and keep the awesomeness moving along!

But WAIT! That's not all!

You also get not one, but two shiny new crowns to adorn your head as you proudly carry around your new Breese Award:


This gorgeous beauty was created by Lady ShuttleMaker and was given to me by my fantastic, nimble-fingered and witty friend, TattingChic:

" The "Blog Queen" award recognizes female bloggers who are:

1. SEASONED; She has blogged for at least one year.
2. PROLIFIC; She writes several posts each month.
3. FUNNY; She make us smile with her witty humor.
4. ADDICTIVE; She keeps us coming back for more.

You may accept this award or not. There are no rules to follow.
You may pass it on as you please.
This is just to let you know that you make my day!"


And this piece of shiny bling is from my dear, sweet friend Yoon See! She is the epitome of inspiration. Thank you!

So many awards dear Bella, your head will get too big! What a wonderful surprise and of course you deserve everyone. And a crown? Wow, now I'm amongst royalty!

Ces said...

I saw that at Peter's blog and I thought that was very clever! You are a refreshing breeze indeed! I think you need to start another blog just for your awards!

Bella Sinclair said...

What? Huh??? Is someone talking? My head has become enlarged, but my ears have stayed the same size. It is awfully hard to hear.

Diana Evans said...

Hugs
Diana

Ces said...

Oh do be careful. Your skull is no longer expandable. Your head might explode. OOOH! A Bella Brain Shower!

Ces said...

...and I envy you that I can't draw like you and can't write letters like you and can't be composed and confident like you.

Ces said...

You are the enviable one. Period.

Ces said...

...but I want to be like you. I don't think you understand. You are too humble.

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, that did it. aaa...aaAA..AAAAA...KABOOOOOOOM!

Ces said...

Stop! I have new pyjamas. I don't want your brain splattering on my pyjamas!

Ces said...

Say, I'd like to know where you got the notion to rock the boat?

TattingChic said...

...um...you're welcome, LOL!

;)

voz said...

Oh yes, you are DEFINITELY Queen. Thanks for even considering me worthy enough to clean your brain off the wall; I'm honored. And only a little grossed-out.

♥ ♥

Bella Sinclair said...

Awww, thank you so much, my friends. You are generous with your sentiments.

Ces, about your brain-splattered pajamas. Did you know that you can use your saliva enzymes to break down blood stains? But only if it's your own blood as well. Would you like me to lick your pajamas?

Voz! Thank you so much for cleaning up the mess. You know, if that semaphore burlesque job doesn't pan out, you can always get a job as a cleaner for the mafia. It pays well.

And don't forget to do the princess wave and we will be watching! I've got my eyes on you!!! He he he he!!!!
Happy Easter Girly

Ces said...

...and so you know the chemical reaction that takes place when your saliva salivates on your own blood right? However, how can you lick my pyjamas when your head exploded and your lips are over there on the sofa while I am holding your tongue in my hand? Be honest. Am I corrupting your wholesome blog with these ideas or are you corrupting me you brainiac!

Caroline said...

Bella, first congratulations on your awards! So well deserved! Second - thanks very much for passing them to me - I'm now going to get a big head like yours too!

Bella Sinclair said...

AAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAA, Miss V! My head already exploded. Now you're going to make my body explode, too!!! Fear not, dear lady. My hand will always continue to do the princess wave! Congrats to you, too!

Ces, why, you can just rub my tongue all over your pyjamas. It's like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. By the way, this is my fingers typing. I am still headless.

Oh, Caroline. Take a lesson from me and take care of that beautiful head!

Ces said...

I superglued your head. Your face is still beatiful. I had to lick some of the gray matter on your cheeks though. So if you feel you have fewer brain cells that's because I have more now and on Monday I can go to work and speak like a professor! I wonder if I can draw like you now?

Bella Sinclair said...

Ooooh, I have a macabre fascination...what flavor was it?

a-doyyy

Ces said...

Tastes like honey.

Ces said...

Ikaw no? Kasabad sa imo. Gapa sweet sweet ka lang dira kag dayun ako and mag get into trouble.

Bella Sinclair said...

sssstickayyyy

Huh? I would need to lick your grey matter to understand that.

Ces said...

I don't have any gray matter left after last night!

Beware of three-headed dogs.

Bella Sinclair said...

No, darling, your gray matter has turned kaleidoscopic rainbow.

Ces said...

私に長い舌がある。

Bella Sinclair said...

WHAAAAAATTTTTT???!!!!

Bella Sinclair said...

GOOD GOLLY! I said rub it ON you!

Ces said...

Hahahah! It's yours! I see you got it back in your mouth! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Renee said...

Bella what the heck are you doing up. I was like is that Bella at this time.

And don't just be passing me off as Ces' best friend.

xoxo

Ces said...

See you got in trouble. YOU are THE best friend.

And Renee what is wrong with ME being THE best friend?

Ces said...

It's the stupid translation. All I said I had a long one!

Ces said...

Hey! Listen to Your best friend, I think she wants you to hit the sack. Goodnight!

Bella Sinclair said...

Ok, even the English version sounds so wrong out of context.

I am working on an IF piece, and I did trees like you today. I thought of you with each leaf.

Ces said...

Oh I love you then. I can't wait.

Renee is coming after you with a paddle.

I think we are a bad influence on each other, although you helped me stay awake last night. Thank you. I am on Fowler's position in bed and my husband is snoring and he keeps grabbing my leg. The laptop keyboard is weird. I am not used to it.

laughingwolf said...

coolios!

Renee said...

I have to make a correction dear Bella. When you said to Ces to listen to her best friend Renee. This is what I wrote on Ces' post

"Oh contra darling. You are more than worthy and you are my best school friend. What it is I see that Bella is trying to stick at us that we are best friends and excluding us from being her best friend and so we cannot let her get away that easy.

Come with me we are off to rope her back in with our best friendiness. It is the three of us and she is not going anywhere.

Are you with me mon ami?"

Hello best friend from your two best friends. I love this childish play.

Love Renee xoxo

Ces said...

Who are you calling childish Renee? You are calling me childish? Don't you know that being able to laugh and giggle quietly is a fine art? This is serious business.

TattingChic said...

Hi Bella, I just got your comment on my blog! I thought it was funny! So, I hope that my previous comment came across as funny to you...it's hard to show "tone of voice" in writing.
Don't worry...I knew it wasn't intentional...it looks like something I would've done...I end up editing my posts a jillion times after they are published anyway...because I find a jillion things that need to be changed!

Hope you have a great weekend! You deserve all these fabulous awards!

Now, I've got to go and get the house tidied before the Easter Bunny comes tonight...I don't want him to trip over a box of tatting books and hurt himself.

Amy C said...

wow I am totally honored, thank you thank you thank you.
And of course BIG congrats to you, and I sincerely hope you have managed to pick up all the bits from your exploding head - you guys are hilarious!

Valerie Lorimer said...

Oh, thank you, Bella! I am so honored!! I'm inspired and in awe of your work, so it's a great honor.

Edrian Thomidis said...

Bella, Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness! I am really touched that you would have thought of me for the Breese award! I have nominated you in return just because I find you are a constant source of inspiration! Your joy and loving outlook in life, your supportive and funny comments and those cute little girls you draw make life a BREESE! Thank you!
