An Award!! Who Me?

Lana at A Hoyden's Look at Literature has given me an I Love Your Blog award here! This is my very first award in bloglandia and I am so surprised. It's just nice to know that more than one person actually visits my blog, let alone become a follower or give me an award. Thank you so much Lana!  I Love Your Blog too.
I'm not too much of a fan of spamming bloggers with awards in this way but in this case this is a great opportunity to mention a few more blogs that are my favourites and I am a dedicated follower of. Here are the seven blogs that I love.
1. Passages to the Past.  Amy's posts always want to make me buy more books! The most recent being The Swan maiden! She also holds great contests. 
2. The Printed Page. Marcia has an eclectic range of book reviews and blog posts and I always look forward to what she will post about next.
3. Medeival Bookworm. Meghan is dedicated to all things historical. I love her reviews.
4. The Good, The Bad and The Unread. These ladies post on a wide range of sub-genres within romance. There are many great books out there I would not have know of but for this blog.
5. The Bookworm.  Naida has these blog posts called Wordless Wednesdays, Quote of the Moment that make me sigh with pleasure. Her recent A Book post with Emily Dickinson quote and accompanying picture was just perfect. 
6. ReadingAdventures.  Marg also posts at Historical Tapestry. Another eclectic poster.  My recent favourite post of hers was where she Trekked herself... I love the Lego characters in posts and on her home page too. How cool is that! (Yes I am a total geek and proud of it). Also...I bought North & South  solely because of following Marg's blog!  Richard.
7. Habitually Chic is my newest favourite blog that was recommended by Deanna Raybourn.  Beautiful pictures of amazing design and artwork.  I can dream can't I!
Here are the rules: 1) Add the logo of the award to your blog. 2) Add a link to the person(s) who awarded it to you. 3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs. 4) Add links to those blogs on your blog. 5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.


  1. So, have you watched North and South. I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  2. Congratulations! It sure feels nice to get that very first award.

  3. Congrats on the awards! I love the title of your blog!

  4. Thanks all! I'm not sure I would do Richard justice in a review but I certainly loved the movie! I passed it along to my Mom to watch too :)

    You know the title was the easiest part of creating my blog. I always knew what I would call it.
