Little Shoes update and an Award!

Firstly I had to show you this. The lovely Doreen suggested I miniaturise and frame the pic of Liberty in her baby shoes. Of course I was left saying, "Why didn't I think of that"?! Thank you Doreen for your inspirational suggestion!
I am happy to be the recipient of this lovely award. It has been gifted to me by the some of the kindest most creative people I know.

Debbie who is incredibly talented and I can only hope to be half as clever as her some day.

Doreen who can make something out of seemingly nothing and with great speed it would seem.
Rosanna who is an absolute darling and makes me feel like I've always known her.

And San who is a kindred spirit and a tireless worker with great imagination!

Here is the spirit in which the award is given:
"This blog invests and believes in 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!”

Now who to pass it on to. I would have chosen all those who gifted it to me straight away without hestiation. There are so many lovely, friendly bloggers out there who have enriched my life more than they will ever know. So here are my 8 choices:

Sylvia who is a sweetheart and has shown me great kindness, her friendship keeps me going

Katie who is also a busy mum and keeps me laughing (actually LMAO!)

Lena who is so lovely and leaves me the sweetest comments

Marlies who is a darling and a great inspiration to me

Synnove who makes me want to create a new dollhouse every time I see what she has done

Pussman whose house renovations leave me feeling like I have nothing to worry about in my own unfinished home

Shannon who was the first miniaturist to email me and make me feel part of the global miniaturists community

Meli whose little dresses leave me wishing I had so much more patience
It's late now so I'll try and let you all know tomorrow, no really, I will try.
