Award time....ta da!

Thanks and humble acceptance to the lovely, talented artist, Julia over at her site. for choosing my lil ole tinki site as a nominee in a recent award.

As is customary in these matters, scroll down to see some rather random and extremely fascinating new blogs I have stumbled upon recently, some courtesy of other peeps blogrolls, but quite a few were followers who magically appear every day or two! Pay them a visit at your leisure, I promise you will find something to enjoy and entertain no matter where your travels take you!

In no particular order or relevance the winners of this award are:

1. Joanna at
2. Christy and her lovely family at
3. Dear Abby, "ohoh" (you know, like eighties, isn't this the o, o's?) style, with Elaine at will have you in stitches
4. See a real life Alice in Wonderland here
5. Lille Diane always inspiring at
6. Trudi in Norway at seems like she lives right next door!
7. Lolli and her candy family at Better in bulk is always worth a visit
8. Sheguyver Siiri at
9. Ever so slightly naughty (sometimes) Tula
10. The ever elegant Sande (who I want to be when I grow up) at is probably familiar to many, but I can never get enough of her gorgeous creations!
11 Sorry, I previously honorary nominated this incredibly funny, creative and sexy blogger as her/she, but David probably didn't mind too much! and we have the same taste in men, it appears!
12. Charmaine and I are twins separated at birth it seems with our love of stuff
13.Yum yum here
14. Brilliant artist
15. Joanie is as great as any of the
16. Take a trip to France with Corey, a mini vacay without leaving home

Of course, I had to have the extra one, I just couldn't leave anyone out!

The rules for this award are as follows:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Feel free to follow the rules, or not! It takes a bit of time, but if you like to acknowledge those whose work you admire, it's nice to let them know and share with others the pleasures you find!

(Phew, glad that's all done and dusted, me thinks it's time for a cup of tea!)

ps, have a lovely weekend!
