A Hoarder ...


I have been hoarding these awards but now it is time to be generous and share them around.

The Pay it forward award was given to me by the dear Lizzy of frizzfrock.

This award I am giving to the caring and thoughtful Dan at mindfulheart because his work with littlies at kindergarten level and his concern about the environment coupled with his daily gratitude practice epitomize the spirit of that award.

The Renee award (in honour of that very special and loving Renee that we all have encountered) recognises loving, kind words of encouragement and this I am giving to Lizzy frizzfrock (knowing that she already has one but this is where I feel it belongs:

and to Mona at monas-inbox, both of whom are never guilty of hoarding their loving comments.
The renee award came to me from artist Yoon see at Greener Pastures.

The very fresh and sweet Lola of aglio, olio & peperoncino gave me the Palabras Como Rosas award. The spanish words translate to "Words Like Roses" and I now have pleasure in passing on this special award to Meri of merismusing because Meri has a way with words that makes their meaning and allusions linger like the sweet perfume of rose petals...

From aus lorri at artivity I received this fab award and I want the very friendly Tulsa at the art of living in Japan to know that I think she has a fab blog full of interesting Japanese daily adventures.

The sweet and loving Sarahlulu at serendipitylulu gave me the refreshing thirst quenching Lemonade stand, the award of which represents unstinting good attitude and gratitude. Mr Cuban of cubaninlondon fits that category perfectly.

Yes I have two of these, the latest one has just arrived from the super creative and inspiring Julie/Julochka at and I am happy to pass it on in the spirit of its makers to
the sweet and generous moonshin at

Thank you to all of the above for enhancing my blogging experience and my life, and thank you to all bloggers who spend time at my pages and allow me the privilege of getting to know you and enjoying your company.

  4. Hello Delwyn, I was concerned about your posting when I read your comment on my blog-- but glad that everything seems to be OK now! I resume posting tomorrow, and boy have I missed you all! Regarding your today's post, I don't understand at all about these awards? who gives them in the first place and are you supposed to foward them on? You can tell I am fairly new to all this!!!

    Now I'm happy double time because of your kind words! I will happily hang the award on my blog's wall! Thank you so much;-)

  8. Many, many, many thanks for this award. i enjoy coming to your blog and soaking up your exposes on Japanese culture. Your illustrations and photos are fantastic and your articles always interesting. I look forward to more of the same, preferably with a side salad of radish, olives and raw onions, please ;-)! Ta muchly, I really appreciate it.

    Greetings from London.

  9. Gracias. The "Words Like Roses" award is lovely and your kind words touched my heart. As you can see, I'm browsing blogs rather than getting down to the decision of what to write and what images to post. I saved 144 photos from my little field trip yesterday.
