My Funny Valentine

OK, so I really need to stop PLAYING with Photoshop, and get cracking on fixing a logo I'm working on for a friend's business website. But really, isn't that the cutest, weirdest little Valentine ever? I think I'll print 'em out and send them to friends. If you'd like to do the same, just email me, and I'll send you a high-res version.

On another note entirely, I've been given a blog award by my good friend Sandra over at
Canyon Wren Cottage.

"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to some bloggers who must choose some more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I'm not sure where the award originated...I'm not even sure what language that is up there! I know it's not French...perhaps Spanish? It's funny how small a world it is, thanks to this internet. Anywho...I'd like to thank Sandra for reading my silly blog every day, and for telling others about it. Now it's my turn to share the love. Below are a few of my daily indulgences, some of which I've only recently discovered:

  • C Jane Enjoy It Today's post will tell you what you need to know about her blog in a nutshell. I will add that the family tragedy was that her sister and brother-in-law were in a terrible plane crash that left them both severely burned. It's a blog full of love and faith, and just goes to show you you CAN make lemonade out of lemons. Even when the lemons are REALLY sour.
  • Renovation Therapy I've told you about Jean's blog before, but I really do pop in on her once a day or so, and she cracks me up.
  • Retail Anarchy This is Jean's fiance's blog about shopping, and bargains and whatnot. And he's damn funny too. (I feel a trend...)
  • Velvet & Linen OK, I just discovered this blog a couple of days ago...I want to say there was a link on Linda's Lime in the Coconut blog that brought me there....and OH what a bunch of decor eye candy there is there! You must go see what's UP! I plan on becoming a regular visitor to her blog, just because everything looks so YUMMY!

All right, that's it for today. If you have a fun blog you think I ought to see, then please leave me a comment so that I can come visit you! Maybe I'll give YOU the award next time! :)

P.S. How annoying is it to try and read against this background pattern? lol. I'll have to work on that later...NOT now. In the mean time, you'll just have to deal with it. :P

Hey...It's still snowing on your blog!

Uh, Linda, I know you live in the tropics of FL, but girrrrl...it's still snowing in NY! And as long as it's snowing in NY, it'll be snowing on my blog. And yes, Valentine's Day will be here before you know it.

I like your background. I don't find it hard to read.
Cute Valentine!

That pink couch image is so cool and creative! Congratulations on your blog award; well deserved.
How funny that you mentioned the text/background reading difficulty; I was challenged with my "old lady eyes" - lol!

Renovation Therapy said...
