One lovely award

Guess what I got? The One Lovely Blog Award from Rajee at Rajee Sood . And that's what I've been saying about her "Home in style" blog. Go check it out. That lady sure has some very stylish ideas!
Thanks, Rajee.
Now I would like to pass this award on to some of my favourite bloggers.

Indian Homemaker at The Life and Times of an Indian Homemaker - for her very spunky blog which alternately has me dissolving in giggles or vehemently nodding my head in agreement.

Arch at Rang Decor - one blog filled with lovely spaces that I wish I occupied.

Kerri at Colors of the Garden - filled with the most wonderful plants and flowers. Her photos are as good as a feast to the eyes.

Joy at Garden Joy 4 Me - I always thought Canada was a very cold place until Joy with her warm, friendly blog showed me that no matter what the climate is, the people there definitely aren't cold.

Meems at Hoe and Shovel - for having one of the most enjoyable blogs about her very lush and bountiful Florida garden.

Thomas and Shilpi at Walk the Wilderness - with some of the most stunning wildlife photography that I've ever seen. I keep telling Thomas to come and collect all the wildlife in my garden, at least the bugs, but he keeps ducking the issue.

I didn't see any specifics about how many bloggers I could pass this award to, and left to myself, I think I would go on and on. But maybe, now's a good time to stop?
Thanks again all of you for publishing such lovely blogs that I could spend hours and days reading them.
And thank you, Rajee for giving me this award in the first place.


  1. Hey Sunita,

    Double Congratulations N Celebrations!

    @ The award by Rajee Sood n
    For the Nominations * 3...
    Good Luck. Sure u will come out Shining n Smiling.


  2. Thanks, Radhika. I'm definitely celebrating :)

    Thank you, Raji :)

  3. Thank You Sunita!!!! Absolutely delighted and honored!!!

  4. Congratulations! You deserve it. My ten-year-old twins and I love visiting your blog. We have learned so much about the birds of Mumbai. And the bird-poop phase of the Common Mormon caterpillar had us howling with delight!

    You are always a delight!

  5. Congratulations Sunita!
    What a gorgeous picture. I love the closeup.

  6. Thank you, June! Yes, I can see how that would tickle a 10-year old mind ;D
    It still tickles my funny bones that the caterpillars have worked out such a fantastic defence system. Can you just picture Mr. Bird saying "Open up, Junior, and have some of this nice bird-poop caterpillar"
    I think not!

  7. Hi Sunita,
    I'm so glad to read your award post ... it had to be you ... cause I love and enjoy the volley of comments between our blogs ... love the lady with a great sense of humour an a blog that says it all ... :)

  8. You and me both, Rajee. I love reading your very fun comments too :D

  9. Congrats!
    Hope the troops at home are sleepy and disappointed. Are Indian wives/mothers sweet enough to serve the boys at home with snacks and drinks when the cricket they watch go on until wee hours?

    It generally does not happen over here. It's appalling, I know.

  10. Amila, you had me scrambling for the newspaper to see what had happened. I guess that answers your question too, right? ;D
    You would think that a bunch of grown men would find something better to do than chasing after a ball they were dumb enough to throw away in the first place! And it looks like the other guys dont want it too because they keep hitting it away too. Madness!
    I won't say anything more. For all I know I've already jeopardised any chance that the son and heir has of wearing the India colours!
    As for the rest of it, I'm sure it's all strategy! You know, making sure they underestimate us...

  11. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your gracious comment :)

    Congratulations on your well-deserved award :)

  12. Congratulations on being nominated for all those categories. For me you are already a winner for the 'Best Asian Blog', as for the other categories are concerned, you deserve them fully except that there I do not consider myself an authority to have an opinion.

  13. You're welcome, Wildlife Gardener! And thanks :)

    That is so very nice of you to say so, GT :)
    But I have a soft corner for all those other blogs, some of which I Follow and others which I am great friends with the blogger. So ...

  14. Congratulations! It's so rare to come across a well-written, fun blog, which is why I check yours every day!

  15. Thanks, Kamini! Your Maami post had me in splits, so coming from the author, I treasure thataccolade :)

  16. Sunita congrats, Raji is one creative and fantastic decorator. I have to thank you for introducing me to some of your favorite blogs. I am now a follower of IHM. Girl, good thoughts will bring good things.

  17. ooops sorry, correction I meant Rajee

  18. Dear Sunita,
    It has taken me a few days to ramble over this way as we have been in and out of town. You are one lovely lady with one lovely blog. I am honored you thought of me to pass this award along to and that you take the time to come visit me... all the way to Florida. :-)

    Thank you... and do have a lovely day.
    Meems @ Hoe and Shovel

  20. Helen, I knew you would enjoy Rajee's blog. Raji at Raji's Ramblings also has a great blog. I'm sure you would like that too.
    If good thoughts bring good things, I'm sure you're going to win the Blotanical Awards because I've been thinking a lot of good thoughts about you and your blog :)

  21. Meems, thank you so much. I enjoy visiting your bog so much that I just had to give you this award.
    Isn't the internet amazing? Global travel at the speed of a tapping finger!

  22. Kerri, I know I don't have to tell you just how much I enjoy your blog because I keep telling you over and over again every time I visit you :)
    This award was the least I could do to thank you for all those wonderful garden photos and posts that you keep treating us to.

  23. Congratulations!!! Good luck with the blotanical vote-- you have my vote! (and if you have a chance, please consider me, nominated as best Wisconsin Garden blog).
