FANtastic Blogs!

What better way to show my appreciation for newly-discovered-and-already-addicted-to blogs than passing on awards and dancing Guajiras (fan dance J)?

© theDUSKzone 2010

I was given 2 awards* by the lovely, quirky, fabulous Romany from the robins, which is a blog that is right UP there in my favourite blogs list.  Romany is taking a break at the moment but please do read her archives.  She has such delicious taste in everything!'s really quite a "what? me??" moment to be appreciated by your blogging peers, especially when you're a blogging rookie (blookie?).  I understand the Oscars now...

So without further ado, let the ceremony begin.  I am applying the rules to both awards, splitting it up, nominating 12 ('new to me and already favourites') bloggers, 6 each...and I have to tell you, it is really, really hard to narrow it down and to not keep naming the same blogs because they're just so fabulous!!  It's why I have created my BLOGS I LOVE page. [see tab above]

The Rules:

1. Link to the person that gave you the award.
2. Pass the award on to however many bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
3. Contact the blogs and let them know they have won.
4. State seven things about yourself.

....and THE BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER Award goes to... [drum roll please and in no particular order]

Glisters and Blisters
Inspiration in Italy
Bardot in Blue

The OVER THE TOP! Award goes to... [another drum roll maestro and this too is in no particular order]

My Tumbling Thoughts To The World (Here I Come)
Hippie by Heart. Thinks Fashion is Art
Lions, Tigers & Fashion, OH MY!
Rock n Roll Ballerina
Republic of Chic
Gorgeous Glam

I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do! could I get some more awards so that I can pass these on to all my other favourites!!!!!!!
(I'm kidding.  Sort of.)

*Romany gave us a choice one or both.  I took both!!  All the better to share...
