I never imagined the response I have gotten to my fairy tales, here on Friendly Fairy Tales. I originally put up stories for family to be able to read them without my providing everyone copies. (I have a BIG family.)
The warmth of community I have found has been a fairy tale come true for me. I love all the comments. I love hearing that others love fairy tales, and even more, that others love my stories. And all the awards make me happy, more on that below…
Thanks to everyone who visits, who likes, who comments or even just enjoys my stories, my photographs and my poetry. For all of you, I have made an underwater visual fairy tale (a new video!!), called Fairy Fish Tails, which has an original score composed by my oldest son.
The video was a long time in the works, and as a result, I have been slow to pass along thanks for awards, but here goes:
Thanks to Diana Jackson of Selections of Reflections, who increased my blessings with a new award. If you don’t know Diana, she is a terrific writer of historical romantic fiction, and has been sharing a memoir of an amazing man who was 103 when she started. The award is called: “Award Winning Blog — has been Blessed Again.” Visit Diana for fun or to copy the rules.
Then Marlyn at Kintal blessed me with the same award again, thanks Marlyn! If you don’t know her, you should check her out. She has great art and poetry.
And Marlyn was not done, but stopped by to give me the Dragon’s Loyalty Award, too! She is fabulous!! Thanks, Marlyn!
Salvatore Vionito at Freedom of the Heart nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award and thanked me for my inspiration and support. He is inspirational as well, full of love and with all the warmth and steadiness of his poetic heart. I will, from here on out, envision him dozing on a couch, vibrating cat on his chest, with thoughts of poetry and pasta.
Thanks to PetiteMagique for nominating me for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award, a new one to me. And for calling me her fairytale sister, what a lovely thought, my Magical Sister!! Visit her if you can’t get enough of magic, like me. 🙂 Then Morgan came along and joined my Sisterhood, nominating me again!! If you don’t know Morgan, she writes great sonnets, poetry and lately has gotten into music humor. Next Gloriana blessed me by making me part of her beautiful sisterhood. She has wonderful photos, poetry and stories of her travels. Thanks Sisters!
Petrel41 blessed Friendly Fairy Tales with a nomination for Blog of the Year 2013. Thanks Petrel41, I love your animal posts!! Petitemagique then came along and gave me another nomination, my magical sister. Then Morgan at Booknvolume, a great, prolific writer and music lover. Then Sweetness6645 at Public TransitUser nominated me again, thanks to a woman with photos of the world on a subway, check her out, she’s awesome. Woo-hoo! What an honor!
Since you get one star, up to 6 total, for each nomination, that is four stars for Friendly Fairy Tales!! Woo-hoo! If you want to see the rules laid out perfectly or say hello to the originator of the Blog of the Year Awards, pop over to The Thought Palette. There you can also grab the appropriate icon with the right number of stars for you. You can also find the link to the Facebook page, which you can join and publish to even more people.
Thanks to Katya Mills at Vitamin K for nominating me for the Liebster Award with this very cool award button. She is a very talented author with a couple of published books that are on my read soon list, and I hope you will visit her.
Please accept my appreciation if you cannot take time to accept the award.
I wish all my readers many blessings, adventures, good health and a little magic. Here are a couple views from my part of the world to thank you for sharing yours:
The first image is the view from the front of the Boston Aquarium, on a recent trip getting footage from my video (above). The second is of a lake near my house, where I often walk. I hope you find magic wherever you go.
With deep appreciation,
