Three Awards AND Josh Kadtke

I've just received three awards from the lovely Caroline of Caroline's Crafts. (She was featured recently and her link is under Great Sites to Visit.) It's amazing that my blog was felt worthy of this, and I am very grateful. They are time-consuming to process, I know, so my commiserations with Caroline for this, but now it's my turn. I'll post one award a day, because of time constraints. I know you'll understand.

So today the first award is Proximidade - Proximity


Proximidade is described as follows:
'This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!'

This blog award should be sent to your favorite eight bloggers and they, in turn should forward to eight of their favorites. You should include the text for Proximidade (above) in your announcement blog.

And so I award the following eight blog pages for their Proximidade attributes:

My friend (well, he was, before this award thing), Josh Kadtke, has two new paintings since I last featured him, "Lost" and "Beach Walk", so I'm showing them below, to remind you what a very clever artist he is. He's also under Great Sites to Visit.




May you all stay warm over the next few days!
