Two Lovely Awards

I love passing around awards as much as I love receiving them. So here goes:


The wonderful Priya Parmar whose delightful blog The Plum Bean Project is a must-read on my blog list gave me the Premio Dardos award.Vaishnavi whose blog The Dust Jacket is an elegant, great read also passed this award to me. I'm honoured to receive this award from both of you :)

"The PrĂªmio Dardos is a way to acknowledge the importance of bloggers committed with spreading cultural, ethical, literary and personal values, showing their thoughts are alive through their letters and words."

I need to pass this award to 15 blogs. Here are the brilliant blogs I can think of right now to pass the award:
1. Alyce at At Home With Books
2. Rebecca Schinsky at The Book Lady's Blog
3. JoAnn at Lakeside Musing
4. Priya at Uniquely Priya
7. Velvet at vvb32reads
8. Claire at Paperback Reader

Kate at Kate's Library, whose blog is one of the best new blogs I'm following, made my day today by passing the Versatile Blogger award to me. Thank you Kate! :)


I have to share seven things about myself as part of receiving this award:

1. I love musicals. My favourite musicals are Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and recently, Enchanted.
2. Playing scrabble is one of my favourite pastimes.
3. I wrote embarrassingly lame poems when I was young. Especially one written in a birthday card to my Dad, in which I seem to have assumed I need to rhyme every single word possible. 
4. Green is my favourite colour. One of the reasons I love this award image!
5. Tea is love. Iced tea, lemon tea, peach flavoured tea are especially great.
6. According to this Jane Austen Heroine quiz, I'm Elizabeth Bennet.
7. I spend most of my pocket money on books.

I'm passing this award to the following versatile blogs that I've newly discovered and loved :)

1. Jillian at Random Ramblings
2. Birdie at Birdie's Nest
3. Lady Scribbles at Lady Scribbles' Book Lounge
4. Stella at Ex Libris

Thanks, Kals! I too love musicals, scrabble and tea.

P.S. Just noticed Austen quote mug - I covet them all but the Darcy proposal most!

Congratulations on your awards Kals and thank you for passing one on to me!!

I also love these musicals, and all my family is a huge Scrabble fan, so when we do family nights, we either watch a movie together or play Scrabble and have a blast! :-D

JoAnn said...

Congratulations Kals! I love scrabble and musicals, too. Recently added a new one to my list. We saw Mary Poppins in New York City earlier this spring. What a treat!

Thank you very much for passing an award on to me. I really appreciate it.
