Acorns and pansies

I feel very honored to have received this Renee "acorn" award from TattingChic. It's really nice that this award has no rules about passing it on, since there are so many deserving bloggers that I wouldn't know where to start.

This award originated with Bella Sinclair, and here's what Bella has to say about it:
"This one is meaningful to me in three profound ways. Firstly, it was created in honor of Renee, one human being who has made such a difference in the lives of many just by being. Her honestly, wit, intelligence, and grit are a tremendous source of inspiration. She can elicit raucous laughter and guffaws in her banter, and then turn right around and offer the most heartfelt, gentle words of wisdom and emotional support. She is a spreader of love, simple and true. And her love is infectious.
Secondly, this award was created in collaboration with one of my best friends, Ces. She is, in Renee's own words, truly original. She is an incredible artist, both in pen and ink and paint. She is fiery passion with a gentle hand. She is laughter, fun, joy, intellectual stimulation, a sister. The concept and design of the award belong to Ces.
Thirdly, this is a brand new award, and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…"

Yet another honor: my "Purple Pansy" HDT was chosen as part of an exquisite
Etsy Treasury put together by meekssandygirl. Just look at all the beautiful Pansies!
