Love Fridays, Swimming Pools and Movie Stars

Now that I have your attention!!!! No movie stars in sight but lots of reasons to Love Fridays.

Tonight I'll be escaping the Melbourne "heat wave" and visiting my friend and crafty partner-in-crime Curlypops, for swimming, dinner and market planning. Ms L is coming along for a swim too and I can't wait.

Before you think it can't get any better you should hear what we are doing tomorrow. During Blogtoberfest Curlypops won a day at Sewjourn for her and a friend and we're off there tomorrow. You can see why I'm feeling like a movie star now can't you? Living the life of luxury.

To top it all off I was given an award by the lovely Buttons By Lou Lou. As the names suggests, she makes buttons. They are absolutely gorgeous.

I was particularly stoked to receive this award as it describes in essence what blogging is about for me.

Proximidade is described as follows:'This blog invests and believes in 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 for 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!'This blog award should be sent to your favorite eight bloggers and they, in turn should forward to eight of their favorites. You should include the text for Proximidade (above) in your announcement blog.

So my list of 8 looks like this:
Hoppo Bumpo
Anastasia Drawing and Dreaming
The Byron Life
Life In The Dome

Alright. I'm off for now. Don't forget I'm having a Happy New Year sale in the shop. The details are here.

If you Love Fridays please join the fun. Let me know if you're joining in. I'll add you to my side bar.
