Out of This World

Soccer Mom in Denial is the queen of nice. Truly. She even has the button to prove it. ;-)

And she's so nice that she cheered me up when I needed some cheering up last week by bestowing this pretty button on me:




And now I have the very pleasant task of bestowing this as well. So, I'd like to send a "right back at ya" to SMID and her partner in crime, Jenn, of Something to Say: About Life in the Netherlands, for their absolutely, outrageously, out-of-this world photography blog: Looking Into. Looking Into provides visual delights every. single. day. And Jenn and Allison are even developing their own niches - Allison is a master of both patterns and the use of words in her photos; Jenn is a wonder at miniatures. And I'm probably screwing up what they're actually trying to do, but these are my very uneducated observations about what they do.

And I'd also like to send a Out of This World button to the very, very funny universe of Rebecca James. Rebecca has a wonderful way of using humor to remind us of how we ALL behave in our day-to-day lives. I absolutely can not read her blog without erupting into laughter.

So to Jenn and Allison for providing me with visual pleasure and to Rebecca for supplying me with laughter, you are all Out of this World! Enjoy!

And if SMID is a fan of your blog... well, that's good enough for me! I'll be back! :)

Well now THAT is a first for me. I've never given an award only to have it handed right back. But that's you Ms. Jen in MI - a rulebreaker. And a cute one too.

Thanks darling. And thanks for being a regular at Looking Into. Your comments are validating treats.

I haven't visited Rebecca James (I'll have to), but I love Jenn in Holland and the Looking Into photo blog is fabulous. Great choices.

Rebecca said...

Oh Jen - thankyou so much. What a lovely thing to wake up to.

I love Rebecca's posts! LOL...

Good choices, all.

And, yeah, you deserve it, too.

Congratulations! What a fun award! Excellent choices on passing along, too :)

I also wanted to come over here and thank you for coming to visit me so often; I don't make the rounds around the blogosphere to comment as much as I should, but I do try...and I also read through Bloglines ;)

Very much deserved, Jen. Congratulations!

Look how late I am to the game! Yikes. But my thanks is deep and heartfelt all the same. Thanks for thinking of us and thanks for your grand support. I appreciate you.
