“Half memoir, half travel, A Yank Back to England...is an absolutely wonderful book, not only about going home again but also about love and family and tradition and the passage of the years.”

Our blogger's cup runneth over

Now here's what I call a lovely cup of rosie lea! We were honored by this charming cup of roses from our friend Melissa at Smitten by Britain, which she says she created to recognize "bloggers who inspire, whether through laughter, grace or just darn good writing." If this is the case, we should give one back to her, because her blog is a breath of fresh air, and we always enjoy our visits. However, the idea is to pass it forward, so here goes.
*More of a share than a pass-along, my first choice is Prodigal Wife, whose photos always inspire me (she turned me into a tourist, right?). The rosy cup will look lovely on her blog, A Slide of Life.
*My "real life" friend Paul at See Me. Hear Me. Touch Me, because I want to encourage him with his new, non-theatrical venture, just as he has always encouraged me. Plus, his blog looks rather bare, I think.
And, of course, due to the nature of the lovely award, I want to recognize these fellow tea lovers, because nothing is more inspiring than a real cup of tea:
* ParTea Lady at Tea and Talk
* Linda J. at Friendship Tea
* Bernideen at Bernideen’s Tea Time Blog
* Angela at Tea with Friends
Just the name of their blogs make me smile--and there's always tea waiting when you visit.
Well done everyone, and thanks again, Melissa!

Thanks for paying it forward Denis. I'm excited to check out your friends and their blogs. And when I win my million, maybe I'll provide the champagne for your launch party.

Bernideen said...

Why thank you so much! What a lovely blog you have here!

You have a lovely blog. And those you mentioned regarding great tea sites I feel are missing at least one. Tea with Friends (ncmagteawitfriends.blogspot.com)

Melissa--I'll hold you to that--will vote again ASAP...
Bernideen--our pleasures, and thank you!
Southern Touch Catering--thank you, and you are absolutely right! We will correct our omission right away.
