A Candied Apple Award!

I love my new Candied Apple Award from my best friend Christy at Christy's Coffee Break, Totally Fabulous, Writers Reviews, Illusion of Magic and the blog of which I'm a co-author A Hint Of Poetry.

Misty Dawn at My Dogs Keep Me Sane passed this award to Christy. This sweet seasonal treat was created by Hooti Anni's Spooky Hollow

Thank you Christy, this sweet seasonal award was made even sweeter by the fact that it was given in the spirit of friendship, and in that spirit I would like to nominate the following blogs:

First of all, back to you my friend, because there's no rule that says you can't honor the person who gave the award to you.

Dawn with Twisted Sister
Sandee with Comedy Plus
Mel, with Monday Morning Power
Jay with Jay's world
Bob with Bobbarama
Marja with Dutchcorner
Patois with Whee All The Way Home
Winston with Eat Your Maths
Walks Far Woman with Kissing The Dogwood
Paula with Polliwog's pond
Vic Grace with Cariboo Ponderer
Santa with Santas Community Blog

You're one of the first bloggers I thought of when I saw the candied apple award. You're a very sweet man Santa, and I'm glad you're my friend.

Have a great day~


Christy said...

That's nice Ann:) I love everyone you chose!

Hope you're having a good day. The batmail is still down so if you have to talk to me try any other method than stupid hotmail. I don't want to miss your emails:)

Dawn said...

Thanks Ann... that was very SWEEEEET of you!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Well, isn't this just the sweetest. Thank you very much. I'll get to this right away. Thank you my friend. :)

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Christy, I know, I hate that the bat mail it not working. I have a google account, but I've always liked hotmail better, if it would just work. Mine is messing up too, but I don't think quite as bad. I e-mailed you day before yesterday, and sent you a card. I hate how you didn't get them. I bet you're about to pull your hair out. I'll be in touch somehow. Thanks for letting me know. :)

Love, Ann

You're always as welcome as a candied apple Ann, thank you for all the times you've included me
in thoughts from your generous heart. x

This award reminded me of these few lines...

From - “The Eve of St. Agnes”

And still she slept an azure-lidded sleep,
In blanched linen, smooth, and lavender’d,
While he from forth the closet brought a heap
Of candied apple, quince, and plum, and gourd;
With jellies soother than the creamy curd,
And lucent syrups, tinct with cinnamon;
Manna and dates, in argosy transferr’d
From Fez; and spiced dainties, every one,
From silken Samarcand to cedar’d Lebanon.

John Keats

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Traveler, (Walks Far Woman)Leave it to you to think of Keats. You amaze me. love it and will post it along with the award and link back to you my treasured friend.

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann
~Dawn Drover~

Catch your dreams

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
