OK, I have to do somethng about these awards before I go away. I really don't like leaving things undone, and although it might look like I didn't care about the awards when they were given, I do appreciate it when anyone gives me anything. So to everyone who gave me an award, it wasn't disinterest, just lack of time.

Nice Matters Award

I received this award from Shropshire Girl and it was started by Bella-Enchanted. Bella describes the award: "This award will be awarded to those that are just nice people, good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!"
Thank you Shropshire Girl. I award the following five bloggers with this award:

The internationally renowned Frugal Subversive Award

This was started by, umm, me. LOL So I'm quite chuffed to be given the award. I am giving my award to bloggers who turn their backs on consumerism to live frugally in a creative and authentic way. These bloggers have made me think in innovative ways about my own life and how I can make a difference making, reusing, and just saying "no" to mindless spending.
I've been awarded this twice - once by Simply Authentic whose blog is here and once by the lovely Lightening whose blog is here.
My awards go to:
