Blog Award Time!

"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."
- Elizabeth Coatsworth -

Happy November, everyone!

Now that we’re in the eleventh month of the year, there’s no denying that winter is on its way. I’m not a fan of short days, long nights, cold temperatures and wintry weather in general, but since I can’t do anything about it, I may as well accept what’s inevitable and try to get through it as painlessly as possible. Wool socks and heated blankets do help.

But enough about winter. It’s blog award time, so let’s get right to it!

This month I’d like to present the award to Janice, another of my favourite bloggers who is the author of Bikbik & Roro, and who commutes all the way from Singapore to read my blog posts (I am so flattered).

Janice is a fulltime mom to two beautiful little girls, and she’s also a writer/editor and illustrator. In addition, she manages a shop on Etsy where she sells adorable and unique handmade toys. On her blog, she shares her lovely creations and bits of her life. She is a talented, inspirational, compassionate and intelligent woman, and I am thrilled that she is part of blogging circle of friends.

If you haven’t discovered this lovely blog yet, head over there right away! Go on now... Just click here and you’ll be transported all the way to Singapore in the blink of an eye. Pretty amazing, huh?

Congratulations, Janice!

And remember:

There are no hard and fast rules to the award. You don’t have to display it on your blog if you don’t want to. Or write anything about yourself. Just know that I think you have a 'totally funkalicious' blog, and I’m glad I stumbled across it. The award and a link to your blog will be featured on the right sidebar of my blog for the entire month of November, so others may get a chance to discover you and enjoy what you have to offer.

I wish you all a lovely month ahead. As lovely as November can get.

Here’s a photo to make you smile...
