Day 39-The Sisterhood Award

THIS IS A most meaningful award and I am really thrilled to have received it from three wonderful bloggers who regard me as "SISTA" (hope you caught my hi-5 and the bum knock, Doreen, MiniKat and Brenda :).

I am going to list all the 30 bloggers whom I regard as my blogosistas for the following reasons:

  • we are interested in what the other is doing
  • we obsessed over the same little things, live in the same tiny world and share the same mini love AND last but not least
  • my blogosistas often take the time to leave me comments (even if it is just to say "hey!"), a gesture which I love to bits and will treasure to death because it means they have time for me
So here they are, THE BLOGOSISTAS:

1. Sumaiya Mehreen (US), who will always be the 1st person to follow my blog and is always popping over to see what I am up to and giving me the time of day by leaving comments. Her work were frequently featured in this blog under Palace Dolls or Palace Artisans. Her doll blog is listed here under Master Artisans.

2. Justus (Canada) who is building a haunted manor called Harmer Manor. I believe she was my 1st follower of my other blog which has since been renamed- The Beginning. She was thus also here during my early days when we were both just starting out. If I am not wrong, she, like me, has yet to buy a house.

3. Daisy Capri, (Sao Paulo, Brazil) the 1st person to ever give me any award and who is part of a fascinating group of miniaturists. I featured her blog on Day 36 of this blog and passed her the Fabby Blog Award.

4. Debbie (Wales, UK), of the famed Tiny Treasures, seems to know almost anyone and everyone and is always always taking the time to give someone a kind or encouraging word. She is much admired for her work, her generosity and her dedication.

5. Doreen Playter (Ontario, Canada) who's blog Doreen's Miniature Projects and Tuts inspires me more than she can imagine. I have just started a projects blog,! I also love how she uses her dolls in her photos (oops, is that why I use my dolls so much too?)

6 & 7. Mercedes and her little helper, Liberty (New Zealand) at Liberty Biberty. (Hi Liberty! Glad you like the flowers) Merce made this more fun by introducing me into the world of SWAPs. She is like the super model of the mini blogosphere and can set anything into a raging trend, latest being the "book background trick".

8. Meli (Malaga, Spain, hey, I was there in year 1998?) whom I look to whenever I want to throw my stitching into the bin. Go see her bathroom (Casita de Meli) and kitchen and reading room and something in there is stitched by her. Salute, Meli.

9. Erika (Jonkopings, Sweden), who is also an early follower. She is a young miniaturist and is always cheerful. She gave my my 1st award for the other blog :) which at that time has ONE entry. The post announcing the award was my 2nd so Erika, thank you, sista for giving that blog a chance.

10.Rosanna (Genova, Italy) who deserves this award just for posting 100 times but seriously, she is a true Sister. I don't know if I will ever bear giving away something as beautiful as her Yellow Room she made for Simone. Here's to your GENEROSITY and more feedback on my blog :), Rosanna!

11. Brenda (Texas, US) is getting this award for the 2nd time because she is so darn popular :). I love her work which she does in such an unassuming and matter of fact way. I featured her blog at Day 20 when I gave her the Blog Award.

12. Eva (Barcelona, Spain) has awards coming out of her ears but well, I hope she has some more space , because here's another one, Sis! Eva makes a wide spectrum of minis which you can see at her blog if you can sieve through all the posts about awards, that is.

13. MiniKat (Chicago, US) who muses in Little Thoughts from An Average Mind about love, life and the universe, is obviously no average mind. Poor Kat is going through pain but if we all have our travelling pants , Sister, we will pop by your house, share a cuppa and then discuss "little" thoughts to our hearts' content. Thank goodness we can still do it here. Cheers!

14. Jean Day (British Columbia, Canada)belongs to a super duper nice artist who seems to have time for everyone. She is the only one I know in the blogoshere who has done 1:144 (not a mansion but a room box(!!) of a Victorian drawing room!!!) She also makes the most exquisite books and of course, she was also on my Day 20 .

15. Sandra Morris, a Toymaker- rolls words off her fingertips the way she rolls life into her clay, exquisitely. She is also roll off the floor funny and does not have to resort to cliche, like me (I have been at this post for 2 hours so excuse me please as corns are growing on my fingers already) . Another blogger featured on Day 20 for the Blog Award,

The following sisters gave me encouraging feedback on my one entry blog (at that time) for which I will always be grateful-

16. Fluffy Bricks (Australia)- Chock a Blog of information. It is a must visit.

17. Las minis de Katy-Another multi award winning blog which is a must vist

Aww! Thank you so much! You're most certainly not mistaken in the least - I have yet to purchase the house itself (but like you, that doesn't keep me from increasing my collection of things for it~!) <3 J.
