That's What Friends Are For

I've been a little out of it since going back to work, and failed to realize that after my sweet friends Andrades Girl and Barbie nominated me for the friends award I should both thank them and keep the whole thing moving! I do apologize for the tunnel vision, and I thank you both, it's very gratifying to receive such recognition.

Here is the award

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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.”

The Rules to accepting this award: “Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

This is really tough for me, partly because I believe many of my cherished bloggers have already received this award, and partly because everyone I read is special to me, each blog adds a dimension to me. I'm torn between biting the bullet and naming 8 people, even if they've already gotten the award, and taking the path M:e chose, that of just thanking everyone and electing to not name additional people. I really agree with her approach on so many levels! But as long as I don't have to find 8 people who have not gotten the award already, I'll list here my favorite blogs. That's not to say I only have 8 favs, just that the rules only allow for 8.

So, first I have to mention Constance at My Dabble in the Middle End, who was the first person I found, and through whom I stumbled onto most everyone else I've become acquainted with.

Princess at Submissive Sparks.

Doubleknot at doubleknots ruminations.

M:e at Aspects of Me.

Swan at The Heron Clan.

Ronnie at Heart and Soul.

Chloe at She Obeys.

Cookie at The Cookie Jar.

Of course Barbie and Andrades Girl would be on this list too if they hadn't nominated me...
And there are more I'd include too - you could actually check out my list of favorite blogs, lol.
Anyway, this is a very nice gesture, it's always nice for us to let others know we think well of them, I hope you all knew that I thought the world of you already. I appreciate each of you for the generosity of spirit you exhibit by sharing yourselves so creatively and thoughtfully.



  1. Hi Tapestry:
    You definately deserve this award! You know I love to come here. Your words of wisdom that I find every time i come here have been so helpful for me. I also nominated Constance...that is where I learned about the Jar Policy! You made excellent choices.
    Take care and I hope each finds you feeling better and better
    btw I am grooving to Christina's Dirrty while I am typing this!

  2. Thanks Tapestry!

    I'm really gonna have to address this awards thing soon. I feel hard-pressed to find 8 bloggers who haven't already been awarded! But... It's on my to-do list!

  3. Congratulations lovely one, very well deserved, and thank you! This feels like a real home from home for me, and I love that feeling almost as much as you.

    love and hugs xxx

  4. Thanks for the award Tapestry. I actually already written mine and had you listed as one of my nominess as well. Thaks so much. hopefully you are feeling better.

  5. Hi Tapestry, you really do deserve that award, I love spending time here with you and thank you for nominating me. I had you on my list of friends but dear AG beat me to it.

    Hope your feeling better and getting stronger and stronger each day.

    Hope your weekend is good.

  6. Thank you very, very much, Tapestry! It's really an honor to have played some small part in helping you get started. I don't know that I'll try to name 8 bloggers myself simply because I think all of my friends have already been mentioned by people (we're an incestuous little neighborhood, aren't we?)!!

    Thanks again,
