A Mini Announcement and Posts of the Week

I'll be away for a few days with limited internet access until Sunday so if I'm not around visiting your blogs and not replying to comments (though I might get a few words in here and there), you'll know why. I have a couple of posts scheduled for tomorrow and Sunday.

Tomorrow's post is a little different - something of a joint effort with my dear pal, Jinsky of Napple Notes. She and I will be combining
her fine poetry with a few of my photographs - a bit of a simul-posting. Head on over to Jinsky's blog right now to read her original, poetic announcement. As for this space.. please stay tuned!

And now on to the Posts of the Week...

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 is a tie and goes to:

Tabor said...

I take a weekend for brief travel and I am so far behind reading blogs that I can never catch up much less find new ones to read!! Hoe do you do this???

Daryl said...

WOW .. I am knocked up ... thank you .. I am honored on behalf of my late bus friend Teddy, he would have raised his bushy white eyebrows in exclamation he never quite understood why I blog ...

Suldog said...

You and Jinksy in a joint effort? I'm seriously looking forward to that!

Gary's third pottery blog said...

OH! Thanks a million! I am sorry to say, once again, something about your blog these days makes my computer shut down, so I cannot visit very easily, but I was alerted by another reader that I was selected. Thanks you H!

Jenny said...

Wow, thank you. What a lovely surprise!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Have a great time, wherever you're going.

Gary, I have a similar problem. My computer doesn't shut down, but it goes slow as Christmas until I leave Hilary's page. I always thought maybe it was the high quality of the photos, but this post has no photos...? Whatever, it won't stop me from visiting!

CiCi said...

Tremendous recommendations, Hilary. Thank you. This gives me enough to keep me busy until you come back.

steviewren said...

Loved Daryl's post, Salzburg and Zuzana's Violet Dawn. The color of the Danish sky never fails to make me happy.

CIN&BUD said...

Great idea you have got going here, favorite posts, I like it!

Tanya said...

Awww, thank you so much, Hilary (and Kevin!)! I'm glad my vanity has won some praise. HAHAHA. I didn't even know that I had gotten this until I had gotten to one of the last comments mentioning they found me through here.

Thank you , Everyone and congratulations to the rest!

Unspoken said...

Oh lots to choose from!

Hilary said...

Thanks for stopping by and for showing your support. It's all very much appreciated. :)

Althea said...

Hilary! Thanks for the mention :) Glad you like the pics :) Always more to come...

SandyCarlson said...

I will go there! Thank you, friend.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Oh Hilary, A million thanks for the POTW. I've been away and wondered where the new readers came from. I appreciate the shout out.

And here's a lovely post that I enjoyed so much. I think you will too....
