Posts of the Week

Before we get to the Posts of the Week, I'd like to remind all readers that the Giveaway is still running until midnight today. It's open to all who live in Canada or the U.S., or for anyone who has a friend, relative or blogging buddy who does. Please scroll down to my previous post for details. Thanks for participating! The winner will probably be announced tomorrow.

The icon/award to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks.

This week's top Post of the Week was written by someone who you've seen me list often. His posts are always incredibly touching or highly amusing - sometimes both. Do yourselves a favour and start including this blog in your daily reads. You'll not regret it for a moment. Without further delay, this week's top Post of the Week goes to :

Thanks, Hilary. Great choices (I mean, aside from mine - which is also great, but I'm trying to be self-effacing here.) Cricket's post about "Two Coats" I found especially moving.

Hilary, thank you so much! Cricket just stopped by my place and let me know.

So many great sounding posts you've discovered. I have work at hand for the moment, but I will have to get back and follow these links.

I'd already read Shrinky's and Sandy's and I'm honored to be in such stellar company!

Wow! Thank you!! I've my coffee and I'm set to peruse everyone mentioned.

Land of shimp said...

Hilary, I always make sure to read the POTW you put up for us...and I'm showing a broken link (?) on Cloudia's. I'm being told the blog doesn't exist.

Help? Helpa helpa?

Cloudia said...

Thanks, Hillary!

I came to see some great posts and am touched to see that you included mine.

Aloha, Dear Friend!

Comfort Spiral

Hilary said...

Thanks all for your lovely comments.

Shimp, the link to Cloudia's blog has now been fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

Sorry for that error, Cloudia.

Clowncar said...

Hey, thanks Hil! I must admit there was a tiny ego-driven but og my mind wondering if I'd get one of these. So, now he's out of a job!

Thanks again.

Ron said...

Hi Hilary!

I think this is such a great idea you have about sharing blog posts.

Congrats to all!

Looking forward to checking them out each week!

Kathleen said...

Ah, sweet Hilary: thank you dear one for the shout out. That post felt so rough around the edges, so I'm honored it spoke to you and some wonderful new visitors as well. I do love reading all your finds! How on earth do you do it? Ever sleep?

Shrinky said...

Thank you Hirary, I was surprised and honoured to find myself included in here. I've read some of your recommendations already, am just off to scoot round some more now!
