My friend Cindy of Oops! Desperate Blogger honoured me by presenting me with this wonderful award. I am truly touched that she has thought of me as a recipient.
This award was created by Ces in honour of her friend Bella Sinclair. The post on Ces's blog regarding Bella and the history behind the award is here. Please visit Ces's blog to read the background as it is quite interesting. In Ces's own words, a short synopsis of the award:
"I designed this award to celebrate art in the blogs and to honor the value of friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring. It is to be awarded to the gifted, accomplished, eloquent and talented blogger whose friendship and influence inspire us to do our best. That I named it after Bella Sinclair is because she epitomizes all of these things. She is an inspiration to many of us."
Ces also says:
"I hope that when Bella returns, this award would have already circulated in the blogs. It is my honor to give this award to the first recipients who I hope will find the same pleasure as I have in spreading its crown, giving shade and the comfort of friendship and caring and of sisterhood by sharing this award with their blog-friends and sisters!"
In the spirit of this award, I am to now pass it on to bloggers that I admire for their creativity, friendship and fellowship. This is a tough choice as I have made so many friends since I began blogging. In no particular order and for no particular reason, other than I think they are all great, I would like this award to go to:
Linda of Nun of a Kind
Julie of When the Spirit Moves Me
Michelle of 3rd Eye Muse
Pattee of Odd-Dolls
