How Lovely!

I've just received this award all the way from West Yorkshire, England!  Lyn, from Everyday Life, passed it along to me. I happen to love England, (Bill and I traveled to London, Stratford- upon-Avon, through the Cottswolds and on to Bath, several years ago), and Lyn's blog is full of lovely photos which I find enchanting. Lyn, thank you so much!
I am just going to name some of my favorite blogs - if you read this and your blog is mentioned, please accept this award with my heartfelt admiration. Like Lyn, I read many blogs, but these
are the ones I check on almost every day!

Everyday Life - lovely scenes of England, lovely gardens!
Sew and Sow Life - Karen writes about her family, life in Vermont, inspiration, nature, and art quilting!
Stegart - Terri is one very talented mixed media artist! She shares her work and offers classes through Two Creative Studios, along with fellow artist Sue Bleiweiss.
Sparkle Jars - Gayle's quilts are lovely and she often links to great music!
Teatime and Roses - this is one special lady, my friend Beverly. She has gorgeous photos of flowers and makes beautiful paper art.
Linden Grove - Again, Simone has great photos of England, and a link to her other blog, Mutant Trees, on which she posts her lovely artwork!
Furry and Feathered Friends - Nan is a watercolor artist and photographer whom I truly admire. On this blog she shares little stories about the critters in her yard and her beautiful cats. On both this, as well as her other blog, Shells and Roses, there are photos of the Maine coast, interspersed with some of her delicate watercolors.
Art Glehen - Helene is a French, self taught painter who does exquisite watercolors and oils.
Visiting her blog is like spending time in a beautiful gallery.
Swan of Dreamers - Shell is an actor, and a self described 'free spirit'! She posts about film, literature, positivity and dreams.

I read many other blogs and, if I haven't linked to you it's because I'll never get this posted if I continue! I know many people choose not to accept or pass on awards, but just know that your writing and work is appreciated! Please visit these talented people if you get a chance!

Have a wonderful week!
Judy

Thank you for the mention. Your blog is one of my favourites too! I happen to love America and visited Plimoth and Kennebunck many years ago. I tasted the best blueberry muffins ever and had the most gorgeous Ben and Jerry's peanut butter chunk ice cream!!!
