Charmed, I'm Sure!

My friend Witchypoo, most charming of them all, as in "one who works charms"? has awarded me this pretty decoration! I love it. Doesn't it look nice against my green frame?

This award is given to the writers of blogs that “are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Now, I have been ruminating on this one for a while. Eight charming bloggers? Friends? Who didn't already get this award? How about:

Theresa at Angel's Mama, a real-life friend whose blogging days are few and far between. Theresa is a Charming Mama with a Charming Angel Baby!

Islandgirl, my Tea-For-Twoesday buddy. Sharon has a new website going and ought to write more!

My Chutney Garden, "The Other Sharon", whose last post "Butterfly Doula" was so lovely.

I Can Fly, Just Not Up, too busy to blog daily these days.

Bluebella, because there's always a party going on on the island, even when the toddlers are potty training.

Those Charmers above don't post every day. Some of them used to, some of them are just busy. I keep them in my blog list, and always smile when one of them pops up with a new post. Below, some daily writers who keep me going, comment, offer advice, and make life merrier:

Life As I Know It, who needs some luuurve now in her chocolate-free existence!

Green Girl In Wisconsin, doing marvellous things with compost.

Wacky Mommy, with regular book reviews, recipes and all things Wacky.

Wacky Mommy said, in her post yesterday, “It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.” (E.B. White, “Charlotte’s Web".) This is true of all of the bloggers I give this Charming Award to. They are good writers, and I consider them to be friends. New friends, old friends, friends I may never meet and friends who pop over at a moment's notice. Life is better with friends!
