My first award, woo-hoo!


Thank you to Julianne Victoria at Through the Peacock’s Eyes for making one of my dreams come true today, an award for friendly fairy tales. She is an inspiring person with great things to say about yoga, tarot, poetry, philosophy and a whole lot more. I hope you will be able to visit her website. I hear she is writing fairy tales, too, and I can’t wait to see them.

Having thanked Julianne Victoria, I now have to tell you 7 unknown things about myself and then nominate 10 other lucky bloggers (with notices and links going out to them).

A story is coming soon(1)! In the meantime, I’ve planted sage, parsley, thyme, tomatoes, cucumbers, meadow sage and peonies today(2). One of the tomato varieties is a zebra stripe. A new adventure in cuisine for us(3).

I also took a long walk(4), thinking of flowers, magic, sunshine and friendship(5). Oh, and sugar, since I stopped at Starbucks (6). 🙂 Here are some things I saw on my way (7):






Thanks for coming on my journey with me. I hope to meet you at my site again soon!

Other lovely bloggers I hereby nominate (in no particular order):

I hope you like them as much as I do!

  1. Congratulations! You deserve the lovely award! It encompasses your tales and your beautiful photos, Brenda! Thank you for reading and “liking” my simple stories!


    • I like your “simple” stories. They are like the stories of Everywoman. Over 100 dates, wow… A friend was telling me about her daughter’s dating as we walked. I said I thought neither of us could really comment since neither of us had dated in over 20 years. My husband and I have date nights, but that’s not the same, is it? If I ever do start dating again, I hope to be just like you!

  3. Brenda, please allow me to add my congratulations. Your award is very well deserved. Your site is a beautiful immersive experience. Thank you so much for visiting my site. I look forward to staying in touch with you 🙂


  4. What a nice group of blogs (which I am honored to be a part of – even if the mechanics of my blog are terribly primitive and not very lovely – I do like my images – but this is too much about me) – you have found some gems to nominate and I will enjoy them. You are a very kind and lovely blogger – so nice that you now have the award to prove it!
    My Best,


    • You are a savior of lovely things and an inspiration! I also like the sites you collected on your award page. I enjoyed visiting them very much. I’ll look for more posts from you! Warmly, Brenda


      • Dear Brenda,

        Were you the person who looked at my Liebster Award page 20 times in the past few days – probably not! I got nominated for another award yesterday, but I am not really sure the person follows my blog (I follow their blog). You are an active follower – HEY anybody want to find a great follower – here she is! I am sending you too many comments, but it is just one of those times.


        • I looked a few times, not 20!! I thought it was such a beautiful homage to awards and the respect of your peers. Comments are always appreciated. Take care!


  5. How amazing! I just came by to congratulate you on winning the Lovely Blog Award! I love the photos of your walk – you must live in a fairy tale!

    You nominated little old me and here I am just dropping by to say hello! Oh my, I don’t know what to say – thank you! I will look forward to your official post.

    Congratulations and many thanks,


    • You should have received the comment. I think I got all the notices done! Whew! And thanks for your congratulations. Your posts always make me smile!


      • I will look into it – I am glad you smile at my posts – you are one of the few who looks at them carefully (very carefully)! Enjoy the blog award bubble – it is fun. Be careful what you say – zillions of people will eternally look at your award post!
        Such fun,
