This Blog Invests in the Riches of Proximity

JemJoop, who has skills at mini-making that I am simultaneously in awe of & envious over, has awarded Angela Michelle Dolls with the lovely Proximidade award!

As originally described....

This blog invests in the riches of proximity! (rough translation). Proximidade, translated from Portuguese to English, means vicinity or neighborhood.

This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. (blogging makes us close by proxy; friendly neighborhoods linked around the world). Blogs that receive this award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. (effort is made to maintain a quality blog in terms of blog etiquette, response, and audience - just because) *Note to reader: It does not escape my attention that the mere posting of the award is, in itself, a small measure of self-aggrandizement. I never said I was perfect ;-).

Our hope is that when the ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships are propagated. (post the award, and grow more friendship by passing it on) Please give more attention to these writers! (be an active friend of their neighborhoods) Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award. "

OK, so I don't have 8 (I need more blogging friends!), but here, in no particular order, are a few of my sincere nominations:

Wonders of Whimsy

Ramblings of E


Pickles on Pizza

(If you've already been nominated, just consider this a confirmation of your wonderful-ness as a fellow blogger-friend :)

Hope you enjoy strolling through these lovely blogs!
