Award, Award, Award!

on January 9, 2014

My, my, my! Three awards! Thank you, Raani, Ute, and Texas!

friends-followers-award The Friends and Followers Award comes by way of Raani York. Raani writes a very unique blog, which you must visit in order to truly appreciate.  While she writes in many categories, my favorite is her letters to celebrities. What a hoot! She carries them for one wild ride! Then, of course, there are Jake’s antics and viewpoints recorded as the Diary of a Cat Prince :-)

According to Raani, this is a relatively new award. It was created by Nerissa at Nerissa’s Life. The Friends and Followers Award was created to celebrate the 75,000th hit at Nerissa’s blog. Congrats, Nerissa!

Here are the rules:

  1. Post the award on your blog. 
  2. Thank the blogger who gave you the award and follow them (by any means necessary ). 
  3. Pass along the award to a few friends who already follow you. 
  4. Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated for the award.

The second award, The Imagine Award, is accepted graciously from Ute smile Ute’s Happy World. This is a totally new award for catnip and what a colorful award, especially the mystical, magical unicorn. Thank you, Ute. Sending thanks along with a big-g-g-g-g hug! I encourage everyone who has not visited Ute’s blog to absolutely do so. You will not be disappointed. She is always coming up with something new, great quotes to guide you through the day, week, month and wit to keep you laughing!

Raani York. Raani must have a storehouse of imagination to be able to write her letters to celebrities. What tops it off, however, is they are true!

There is never a dull moment within the writings and plenty of aw-w-w-w-w moments!

  9. Reblogged this on SERENDIPITY and commented:
    I wanted to write all about these awards and of course, the one that was given to me — The Imagine Award. Which I love because if there’s one quality I value in myself and others is imagination. But time is short for me right now and I thought perhaps a simple reblog and a HUGE thank you might suffice. Love you Sharla! You’ve been a true and faithful friend and a wonderful supporter.
