It's a sparkling, sunshiney Autumn day in my pocket of the world and I wish you could be here to share it!
Instead I'll send a burst of brightness your way, thanking you enthusiastically if you were one of the many wonderfully creative types who played along in my recent 'Say What?' giveaway.
You brought lots of brightness into my world with your fabulous words and writing - treasures all.
As you may be aware I'm not one for the electronic dodads when it comes to prize drawing, instead I meticulously wrote everyone's names [multiple times for some of you] onto two pages and then painstakingly cutting them out. They went into a lovely coral coloured dish that my brother gave me for my birthday and then a name was drawn out....
I can't show you what it is as I'm now in the process of making it, but perhaps Ms Lizzie will post about it on her truly sparkling blog and you'll see what I mean about it being personalised.
If you are a lover of words and literature, you really must visit Lizzie's space.
Now a special mention must go to my fabulous wordy friend Ning.
Special kudos gets fluttered your way because of your enthusiasm and creativity.
For a person whose second language is English, I was gobsmacked by the story you created using the 'words in the bubbles'.
Dear friends, I'd be thrilled if you stopped by and took the time to marvel at what Ning created.
I'll be sending a little pressie your way too Ms Ning.
Now that all the fun stuff is shared, I need to let you know that I'm taking a fortnight off from blogging Lovelies.
I'll be back in time to do our faves:
* 'Post Of The Month' Club - some pearlers last month
* 'Vive Le Livre!' - I've got some brilliant books to share already...and
* A colour post [purple is the feature this month if you're keen to play along]
So keep your peepers peeled towards the end of the month/beginning of next month for these as I'd hate you to miss out. Don't be offended if I'm not visiting your space as much as I usually do, there are lots of balls in the air at the moment [including Captain V's 50th - yikes!] and I need my wits about me not to drop anything.
Happy day, I look forward to when next we meet,
