A Big Thanks...

[Update:] I just received another lovely award...from Michiko of Things of Beauty, a truly inspired, informative, beautiful blog out of Japan. It is such an honor -- thank you for thinking of me! Nice Blog Award Rules: 1.) Recipients of the award are asked to link to the nice person that gave them the award. 2.) Link to as many other blogs as they want to give the award to and write a motivation for the person. 3.) Must also make sure that they let the bloggers who won know about the award. Since I just tagged 1o for the previous award, I'm going to be lazy and tag just a few non-fashion related blogs...there are so many good ones, this is always hard!!

Mad Vortex -- This blog features vintage advertisements and hilarious commentary. It makes me laugh out loud every time I read it!
Peculiar Beauty -- The name says it all; everything from bizarre fashion and diet trends of bygone eras to strange vintage magazine images.
Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood -- This site celebrates the women immortalized on canvas by members of the Victorian Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and associated artists.
Wicked Halo -- A collection of the odd and the beautiful, with an emphasis on art and photography.

Awwwwww...I think the universe (or at least the lovely Ana) could sense I was feeling a bit down and decided to perk me up by bestowing the "Your Blog is Fabulous" award onto me! What an honor...and she included me among some great company. Ana is one of the hardest working ladies in the blogosphere, and her passion really shows! If you don't already know her, check out her blog On Dressing Up. But, be warned, you will be jealous of her array of sundresses and sandals (she is located in warm, sunny New Zealand!). I am passing this award onto ten other deserving blogs that I have grown fond of as of late...Cheers!!

Spokes'n'Daggers -- Spokes 'n' Daggers is a combined blog of two friends, Gaby & Jane, who love to share their creations, interesting finds and day to day life.
Greetz from Tiz -- An Italo-belgian girl with the great passion for chocolate, shopping in Maastricht, staring at the sea from her balcony, and dancing jive to the music of the '40-'50's.
Anmutig -- Nadine from Stuttgart, Germany; Anmutig is her little sketchbook for interesting fashion and design finds.
Tea Time -- Her other blog, Art Deco, has been one of my favorites for ages. This one is specifically devoted to East Asian beauty.
Lady Lavona's Cabinet of Curiosities -- Beautiful and macabre; the perfect combo, if you ask me!
Nubby Twiglet -- Stunning design and graphics, great shoes, and excellent blogging tips...all in one place!
Violet Voice -- An always dreamy, sensual, and eclectic mix of images.
Dramatis Personae -- Ashe Mischief hopes to recognize her loves of fashion, the arts, and living, in a most theatrical way.
Childhood Flames -- One of the most popular personal style blogs out there and for good reason: Camille has an avant-garde style few can rival.
Couture Allure Vintage -- A blog for lovers of vintage clothing and fashion, where you can learn about vintage styles, designers, and design concepts through photos from the past.
