below the nasturtiums, things look otherworldly
Though I would describe myself as someone who eschews attention and finds herself regularly opting out of anything that smacks of ‘joining in’ – always have, probably always will – unusually, I find it hard not to pass on some awards that have recently and, I’m sorry to say, not so recently, come my way. My mother would be very embarrassed if I waited a moment longer to pass out and acknowledge the generosity of fellow bloggers who have, very generously, considered Nourish Me worth awarding. But I hate making choices – so many of you write so damn well – and so have limited myself…somewhat.
You Make My Day: That it came from Shula of Poppalina is all the more reason to pass it on. Yoga goddess, creator of exquisite handmade things and a woman with a seriously Good Eye, she, without exception, always makes my day.
Callipygia of Foodchair draws and writes about food and produce with great subtlety, incredible, breath-taking skill and a wry sense of humour.
Lisa. Because everything she cooks – every, single, thing – is exactly what I want to eat.
Stephanie. Because I love her. To bits. And because she straddles two writing worlds in an enviably, deliciously good way.
Carson of Needle's Edge. Carson blogs and knits from Sydney. Literate, clever, funny, stepping into her little corner of the world is calming and very, very beautiful.
Yummy Blog Award!: Vegeyum of A Life (Time) of Cooking awarded this, a woman whose wisdom and gentleness make her yummier than to me than you can imagine. I was floored. Me? Yummy? How lovely!
Wendy. You should see what this woman can do with a camera and the wild Scottish landscape.
Christina, oh Christina. Teacher, gardener, writer, keeper of family recipes and heirloom seeds. You simply blow me away.
Johanna. Because your food, my friend, is so very, very yummy.
Blogging With A Purpose: Thanks to Another Outspoken Female of the Melbourne blog Confessions of a Food Nazi. A.O.F.’s is an individual and inspired approach to eating and cooking. Honoured? You bet.
Ricki of Diet, Dessert and Dogs. You see, she does all of that, from a vegan perspective no less, but who’d know it? Everything is perfectly delicious. Ricki, I could have given you every single one of these awards, but where, I wonder, would you put them all?
Katrina of Kale for Sale. Passion for the welfare of planet and an extraordinarily spare, elegant way with words. In awe, I am, and often.
(**Not really. But then, I do have a fondness, an affection even, for the way we Australians play with language.)
