Funky Friday, once again!

Is ornamental cabbage funky? Yeah, it kind of is! Have a fabulous Friday & an even better weekend! I'll be leaving Monday on a biz trip, so there won't be any more postings from this corner until after next week. Take care!

This week, my blog received 2 awards. How fun is that!

The first was Our Lovely Blog Award from Mary at The Fresh Notes. Mary's a newbie blogger who's doing a fine job of keeping us entertained and informed with her stories, photos, and recipes. Thank you, Mary, for acknowledging Beth's Take on Life! It means a lot to me.

The Rules
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

The wonderful blogs I want to share this award with are as follows:

* Milkmoon Here you'll be able to enjoy a glimpse into the life of a creative Irish mom.

* Loving. Living. Small. As a small space dweller, I turn to Loving. Living. Small. for inspiration.

* Maartin Maailma This one is in Finnish, and I can't understand a word, but the photos say it all.

* The Cottage Cheese This is the place to explore interesting homes around the U.S.

* Jersey Girl Blog, Vintage Clothing As a former Jersey Girl who also collected and sold vintage clothing, I get a big kick out of Jersey Girl's blog.

* Artsy Mama I enjoy this colorful, lively blog filled with examples of beauty from indoors and out.

* Chronically Vintage This blog is new to me, but it does a great job of feeding my need for all things old and interesting.

* Diary of a Dishie As a vintage china NUT, Diary of a Dishie is one blog I can really relate to.

The second award to come my way this week was the Big Blog Award, given to me by my good friend Silke of Metamorphosis. Silke is sharing with all of us her budding artistic endeavors, plus the other happenings in her fabulous life in Georgia. Since we're on opposite ends of the Eastern seaboard, Silke's blog helps us stay connected. Once you discover her blog, she'll begin to feel like a friend of yours too, I'm sure.

I'd like to share the Big Blog Award with these great blogs:

* Heather Bullard Simply one of the loveliest blogs I've ever seen.

* Paris Hotel Boutique Journal A recent find, and I'm glad it's on my radar.

Thank you to everyone who blogs just for the joy of it! Your thoughts, words, and pictures enhance our lives, providing much inspiration and pleasure!

Funky Friday!

I'm trying something just for fun -- Funky Friday! Here I'll post a picture or two of something that I think is funky. Today, it's a photo of some handmade figurines that I always thought were kind of funky. I picked them up at an antique shop in Bistol, Maine. TGIFF! Thank God it's Funky Friday!
