Liebster Blog Award

To my utter surprise and delight, my friend Jackie nominated my little blog for this award.
Jackie is an outstanding poet. Her verses are among my favorites, and I'm honored to be her friend. Visit her blog here:
The Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany.  Liebster means “favorite” or “dearest.”  The recipient of this award agrees to the following:
1.  Show your gratitude to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2.  Reveal your top 5 picks for the award, and let them know.
3.  Post the award on your blog.
4.  Bask in the love from the most supportive people in the blogsphere.
5.  And last, have fun and spread the karma!
The following are my five selections in no particular order:  - my publisher, and dearest friend  - author friend Junying Kirk, a wonderful writer and kindred spirit - crafter, quilter, knitter Kirsten Duncan. I can't say enough  in how many ways I adore her art - Faye Rapoport Despres. One of the really great Ones. Enough said. -  Ree Drummond. Seriously.

and as number six I'm adding - because nothing goes without her.
