A great big thank you to masonbentleystyle.com for nominating me for a Versatile Blogger award. You can see that I didn’t waste anytime in sticking my plaque up on my side-bar.I feel very flattered to have been nominated…and especially by someone whose blog I really enjoy and admire.
It does come with responsibilities though and I in turn have to nominate my pick of blogs. I will have a good old ponder .There are so many that I like, it will be hard to narrow them down but when I do, I will post.It’s a nice way of finding and sharing kindred spirits in the vast blogging world.
