    Kim, wow that is a beautiful award and thank you so much :)
    Such a lovely surprise on this frosty morning, it's warmed me up just seeing it.

    You should allow us collectively to force you to post one on your blog from all of us :)

    To have met so many kind and wonderful bloggers is amazing in itself, and some strong friendships have been formed through this.

    Thank you so much. Have a great weekend :)
