Kreativ Blogger Award

I humbly thank Marie Leonard Boza of "Dancing in Tattered Shoes" for giving me this award. Marie's blog posts about her personal stories and reminiscences have a vivid humor that never fail to make me laugh. I find that to be a gift. You can find her here: http://dancingintatteredshoes.blogspot.com/

The goal of this award is to honor bloggers we believe grace the worldwide web in kreative ways that capture our attention, make us think, encourage and inspire us, provide information and ideas, and more. Current recipients then pass the goodwill and attention to other worthies. If you are nominated, please follow these seven rules. So far I've completed rules 1 - 3. I will do rules 5 - 7 here, but leave rule 4 for my next separate blog post. I'm new to blogging (two months) and I'm afraid that most people whose blog I follow may have already been nominated. So I apologize in advance if I nominate you again.

1. Thank the person who gave this to you
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog
3. Link back to the person who nominated you
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each blog letting them know you nominated them

I nominate the following bloggers:
1. My wife Anita, who discovered blogging, took off, and kept encouraging me to use it as an outlet for my writing itch. Thank you sweetheart. Her blog Castles Crowns and Cottages is a fun and inspirational place to visit.

2. My sister Nancy from Fete et Fleur whose amazing, awarding-winning blog (and gorgeous shoes) and encouragement first got Anita hooked, and later, stubborn me.

3. The Dutchess who has graciously allowed me to join the fun at Nowhere. And one of her other blogs (The Garden of the Grand Dutchess) is a world so close to my heart.

4. Patricia "Tita" Cabrera of Woolytales Miniatures whose creations are truly wondrous, and which reflect the love and magic of her own soul. Your children are blessed. http://woolytalesminiatures.blogspot.com/

5. Bonnie of Bhive Buzz and Diamonds and Daisies, whose posts and personality are simply a delight.

6. Marie from Creations by Marie Antoinette, who not only sells beautiful things online, but has some very charming posts. See her latest, "My Daughter, Me, and Halloween." http://tonidolls.blogspot.com/

7. Sherry from Edie Marie's Attic: not only for her charming blog, but her sweet friendship. http://ediemariesattic.blogspot.com/

There are so many others like Jacqueline of Once Upon a Fairyland and a contibutor on Nowhere, and Marie, who just got the award, and many more who also deserve it.

Thank you so much
Rattus Scribus

Did you let these lovely ladies know that you nominated them?

Hello, dear Brother!

Thank you so much for giving me this award!! I feel doubly honored to have received it from you.

Naturally, dear Rattus, I did not follow instructions and read your Seven Things About Me blog first! Ha, ha what a crack up! I loved your stories.

Now that I am here, I found you nominated me for an award. Except for a science award I got once, I am bowled over that you nominated me and I humbly accept. :)

I am happy to have met such wonderful people over this blog thing. And that my dear Rattus includes you and the lovely Anita.

Rattus my friend..I am honored.

What wonderful stories..I also ran away from home ones...I was three years of age..Very urly one morning I wanted to go visit my Uncle...I was upset with my mother for some reason and said "I am going to live with my Uncle and little nieces!!And there I went..in my pyjamas.
My mother decited to follow me from a distance to watch what would happen. To her surprise I knew the way to my Uncles house..a walk from about one our!I would have reached it if it wasn't for the dog I met on my way. I was very affraid of dogs at that time.
Later I would tell people I ran away but Lassie wanted me to go home..

Thank you for the award ...
