Friday Fleurish: Tickled Pink

It's Friday Fleurish, so here's a rustic basket potted with pink hyacinth bulbs and packed down with a little moss. They'll intoxicate you with their fragrance all weekend. {No blood alchohol levels will be affected, I promise!} I was tossing up a few different paintings for you today, but when I received this award from Finie Ramos, it tickled me pink, then decided me. I couldn't help but colour co-ordinate.



Thank you for the award, Finie! Finie has a sweet blog. She calls her comments Love Notes`~ a big clue about her right there.

Now I understand how tough it is to pass these awards on. So I put the names of my favourites on pieces of paper and had our kitty decide, based on the first three she tried to play with. But I'm passing the award on with no strings attached. It's yours to do with as you please. Just bask in the glory if you wish...
  1. Alexa at The Road is Mine, daily snaps, usually of New York, from a bright, good sort
  2. Margaret at Finnegan Begin Again, witty and sage writings on ancient goddesses, wise women and the occasionally piglet
  3. PopCultureNerd, intelligent inside scoops and reviews on movies, books, TV and other popcorn-fuelled pursuits
Thanks for your lovely blogs ~ celebratory hyacinths for everyone!

  3. Congratulations, Shell! How sweet to get a blog award. I am fascinated by those who blog and their readers. I wish I had more time to read them all!
    Thanks to you I have my Friday Fleurish. If we don't get some sun soon I am afraid they will start to wilt! ;)

  5. I rejoiced when I saw your beautiful flowers (hyacinths are amongst my favorites). Then I was excited to see you'd won a blog award. Then I was even more excited to see you and kitty had passed it on to me!

    Congratulations and thank you, Shell. I'm doing a happy dance much like your avatar.

  6. Cali ~ Well goodness, we can't have you or the hyacinths wilting. I'll try and send you some of our sun - it's glorious here today.

    Petrea ~ I think she and Boz would like each other! And your name was on one of those pieces of paper I rolled on the floor for her... I love my daily dose of Petrea and Pasadena.

    PCN ~ Hyacinths are up there with my favourites. And I'm doing the dance with you! Enjoy!

    Like pcn, I'm doing a happy dance.
    Finie is really beautiful, isn't she (outside and in)?
    And thanks for also introducing me to the blogs of Margaret and pcn. They're all great, and now bookmarked!
    I happily accept your award—and also your beautiful hyacinths (one of my fragrant faves; how did you know?).

  9. Yay for that much-deserved award! And hyacinths are one of my all-time favourite flowers! They're almost sculptural in their beauty, aren't they?!

    Hope you're having a great weekend Shell--and thanks for all your wonderful comments on my blog this week :)

  11. Congratulations, Shell !
    You DO deserve it and you transmitted "le flambeau" very well !!
    Along with Alexa, you inspire me. I am getting addicted, I often wonder, in front of an event, how you and her would "translate" and comment it !!!
    Now I'll go and visit the other blogs you mentioned, again thank you.

  13. Congratulations on your award, and thanks for sending it along to me! I am delighted and honored, although I can almost promise that I won't be able to color-coordinate it.

  14. Margaret ~ you're being modest as always - I know you can colour co-ordinate it, but there is absolutely no requirement to do so. Enjoy!
