Dutchess ... what kindness you bestow. to be on your kindred spirits list is one thing, but now this ...

oh how i would like to accept this award. but if i must only select 5 other's in turn, i simply cannot. most who visit me with regularity do not share their presence through commenting and then of course, there is the matter of my enjoying so very many other's in cyberspace.

please let me know if my desire to bend the rules (substantially) is alright with you. if it is i will humbly accept this award from you. if it is not, i understand and will count it an honor to have been nominated.

love to you,

Laure said...

Rosie said...

How lovely - you are very kind and thoughtful to think of me, what a super award but I think I will have the same problem as Laure with my 'Family Matters' blog only a few visitors and not enough comments to find 5 others to nominate. I will do what I can, again thank you for your kindness:)
