And the winners are ...

Oh my goodness! I have never recieved a blog award before, and I received two (2!) within 24 hours! I feel sooooo lurved - and blessed. Shout out to Umama (oh mama) for making this moment possible ( this is me at the podium, nervously looking for my notes scribbled in now running ink on my arm) and Girlichef, who so graciously presented me with the second one. And now it is my honor to pass the love forward. And I know you are gonna really enjoy the treats I have in store for you!!!!
I am eclectic - so this is not gonna be your average selection of recipients (he he) - oh, how I love the tension and element of surprise building here...

In my food blog arena, I present -

Love and the Licked Spoon - makes you just wanna go there for the title alone! This woman writes with a passion and humour about food, has some incredible recipes, takes you on vacation with her to handpicked spots that resonate with her because of ingredients and food she will find while there. She makes you wanna eat things you never dreamed of eating before.

Girlichef - this girl has a food palette that just matches mine to a tee (uhmm all the Tex Mex comes first to mind), makes it seem seamlessly easy, talks you through it, takes you through it with step by step photos (she got a new camera - no stoppin' her now!)and, I think, is just one big sweetie! (okay - you may have noticed she gave me this award too - but before I knew that, I had already determined to give her this award - so you see that I have the right away in the regifting of the award, right?)

Just Jenn Recipes - I discovered her when she received recognition for her doughnut/cupcakes. Yep, that's right. She has some entirely too cute and clever baking and cooking skills that she is willing to share with the rest of us mere mortals.

In the Lovely to be a Girl arena -
Rinse.Repeat - Bethany has an easy going way about her, gentle thoughts, heartwarming shared stories and insights. Cozy, comfy and caring. You always wanna drop by and say "hey"

Les Petites Fleurs - La Fee is a thrift minded girl that loves to dress cute - I love her garden shots and the incredible finds she cobbles together to make her cute weekly ensembles.

Chic & Green - this is a must stop for anyone interested in having the safest and best products for your face and body and is interested in DIY bath care/bodycare products. Karley is simple awesome, awe inspiring and I love her line of skincare as well.

In my photo/fiberlicious arena -

grrl + Dog - This is my current blog crush - she makes knitting roguishly fun and is presently preparing a huge art installation at a museum because of her fiber passion became recognized. You go girl!! She makes you wanna get out and create.

Snarky Stitching - a very new find, but irreverent and hilarious! This is stitchwork with lurid flair. Adult themes here - enter immediately!

Binky's Space - the best, the cutest photography and the most inventive lines of thought to pair them together.

The Rules:

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. (oops - nine will just have to do!)

3) Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

    Although I don't participate in awards, you know I will sing your praises to the gods and the worms alike. Thank you so much for including me and I think I am also in love with Snarky AND the gorgeous foodie grrls.

  4. Oh YOU. This is really lovely. I've been blogging for all of about 10 minutes so this is quite overwhelmingly sweet of you. You were my first follower (other than the ones I'm related to by blood - they have to follow me or they won't get fed. I'm strict like that)so you have a very special place at my table. And I think saying that I make you want to eat things you've never dreamed of eating before is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me. Big love and lots of licked spoons, Dx

  5. Thank you so much! You made my morning :)

  6. Aw, you are all too lovely, Lady P! :) I always love when you stop by to say "hey" in response to my lengthy rambles and I equally love coming over here to say "hey". It seems this blogger friendship is perfect!
