places to visit

Recently received this great award from Nina of Las Niñas y Los Niños! I love awards for the obvious self centered reasons and also because it’s a terrific opportunity to share places that I’m fond of. That's Nina in the photo with the gorgeous red hair (in case you don't already know her) I sort of changed the award since I wasn't sure how she'd feel about being passed on?

Thank you Nina for this lovely award and to all the following... your blogs are amazing!xo

(1) Diana, (2) Drollgirl, (3) Rebecca, (4) Carrie, (5) The Clothes Horse, (6) Miriam, (7) Anna, (8) Sam, (9) Ana and (10) Tina. Honorary awards go to two of my favorite guys: (11) Mondo and (12) Keith.


Please note: The illustration in the award is borrowed from Found in Mom's Basement.

Woweee! Now this is how giving out an award in style, gorgeous. Thank you so much. The wee award is such a treasure.

I had a lot of fun in that cemetery. Usually I'm quite chicken about death and graves in general. But the day was so beautiful and the light so bright, all thoughts of ghosts and creepy things were chased out of my mind!

Sam said...

You so totally deserve that award sweetie! Your blog is a work of art! Thank you sooo much for including me in your set of 12!! As always, an absolute honor! XOXO
