ABC Wednesday A for Awards

These are almost all the awards I got during the two years I am blogging at blogspot. They were given to me by my dear blogging friends. In the beginning I showed them on my blog, but there were too many, besides it took quite some time to pass the award on to 5, or 7 or more bloggers. So I decided to store them. I am very grateful that so many people thought me worthy enough to give me one of these beautiful awards. Thank you so much! I am only not going to pass awards on, I like you all just as much, my friends.
ABC has started again and I thank the team of Denise Nesbitt for this meme. For more entries please use the logo in the sidebar.

Beautifully presented..I am sure that you are quite proud to have been the recipient of great gifts!
Nice kaliedascope of memories...

RuneE said...

I'm sure that you deserve them all!!

PS I have more or less the same policy regarding awards.

Dina said...

All those awards! Congratulations!
Love that kaleidoscopic effect. All that seems to be missing is trumpet fanfare. :) Good onya, Blogger Wil!

Some of the blog awards that get passed around sound like chain letters and pyramid building. I traced one back through links to the original sender two years previously.

So I mostly say thank you but decline the offer of passing them on.

This is a great meme. I enjoy being a spectator and enjoying the imaginative work that goes on. You are a great asset. You feed my imagination.

Vicki Lane said...

Yes indeed, well deserved! But you're right, it becomes a chore if there are too many.

Brenda said...

I love the way you displayed them Wil. You deserved all of them. Your blog is always very interesting and fun!

I never tire of Kaleidescopes - they are endlessly exciting to watch.

Gramma Ann said...

I too, like the kaleidoscope effect. You are very creative and I'm sure deserving of each award you received. I have always enjoyed your blog. I may not leave a comment each time I visit, nevertheless, I find your blog very unique and interesting.

Beautiful awards and so well deserved.

I am like you, I stopped accepting and passing on awards a while ago. Just too many, and takes up too much time. But like you, I love all my blogging friends.

Your blog so so special to me. I can see and learn about all the beautiful area's of your world, through your pictures and words.

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday!

Hugs,

Renie

C'est un très beau kaléidoscope, et ces récompenses sont bien méritées .
Comme j'ai fait une énorme erreur sur mon dernier article, je vais le refaire plus tard .

British canals are full of narrowboats - I've posted pictures of some on several occasions

mkreider said...

This is really a neat way to show your awards!

Müge said...

What a brilliant idea to display your blog awards in a slideshow! I think you deserve them all since your blog is very beautiful and interesting to explore.

But ... as a dog lover ... I have to say that the Beauty on your page header photo has a special place in my heart.

Have a nice Wednesday!

Clever use of A -- and the awards are much deserved!

Babooshka said...

Oh wow the Kaliedescope just hooked me. I had one as a kid and that image brought back such fond memories. I stopped collecting awards long ago or passing on like you blogging and virtually conversing, reward enough. Always rewarding visiting here.

Grace and Bradley said...

Wow, it is amazing how many awards that you have, but you certainly deserve them.

Carol said...

Love the kaleidoscope....this is the nicest thing I've seen about awards...

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Great idea Ma'am! How would we know that blogging will take us this far in developing our creativity?

Wonderful ABC: Awards!

Congratulations!

Have fun!

Paula Scott said...

I'm dizzy!!!

anthonynorth said...

Awards are always great to receive, but like you I rarely pass them on nowadays.
You certainly deserve them.

Marja said...

Congrats Wil You deserve them You've got an absolutely great Blog
and you can see that you spent a lot of time in it. Thanks

Jama said...

Congrats on getting all those awards!

jay said...

Love the slideshow - it's a great idea! I take the same approach now, it's wonderful to be acknowledged with an award, and each one I get gives me a warm glow and makes me feel honoured, but as you say, it's difficult to choose the people to pass them along to.

I need to make an awards page!

Rose said...

A fantastic kaliedoscope presentation! You have such interesting posts here that you deserve all these awards.

Q said...

That was very fun!
Awards are a wonderful way to start round 5!

Look at you and all of your beautiful awards. You are truly a super star : ). Congratulations. Great A!

I saw your comment on Dina’s blog about garbage cans being destroyed and wondered where you live, and became enchanted with the picture of your dog and other pets. Your dog is adorable. We have two cats and love animals. I am writing a post on the Tour de France and would have liked to include a picture of Tom Boonen the Belgian national champion but I have not seen him lately, he could have abandoned le tour.

I gave up on all awards after I learned they are a promotion scheme. Give someone something they like and have them pass it on to five or ten others who pass it on and soon you are supposed to have so many hits...

Well you know the rest of the story. It is like SPAM to me. And I don't do them.

I do like your kaliedascope.
