An AWARD ... for us? REALLY?

Way way back on May 4th the lovely and talented Kennesha from
"menmyhouseblog" honored us with our first blogging award!!
The Kreativ Blogger Award.
Big hugs and kisses to you, Kennesha
{wish we could deliver them in person ... lucky girl lives in Hawaii!}

We did the Gypsy happy dance for a long time ... then it took us an even longer time to come back down to earth and try to decide who we wanted to pass the award on to. This was a difficult decision, you know as well as we do how many FABULOUS blogs there are out there that we all enjoy reading everyday.
So....we thought if we chose our 7 favorite blogs from a "themed list" it would narrow the field and make choosing a little, just a little, easier.
Okay, what should our theme be?
That's obvious!
With all the Gypsy love going around these days we knew we would hit on some fantastic blogs
... and we did ...
here's our 7 favorites and the ones we would like to pass on the Kreativ Blogger Award to. -Writer and Photographer -Herbalist, Mother, Artist -Altered collage artist -Digital artist -Mom extroardinare -Flea market enthusiast -Graphic artist

Go check out all these fellow gypsy souls, you'll be sure to find a
wide variety
of talented and engaging women!
