Awards for you!!!

Thanks soooo much Kat I love this award!

Now this above award is the Van Gogh award, I think it fits my blog because I try to inspire people as did Van Gogh with his many paintings. Roger DMan of Idaho Photo gave Sandee the Van Gogh's Ear award. I wanted to make sure he got the proper credit for creating and designing this great award! Here's what Roger said about this award:

A Top Award for You

Every year I like to make up a award and hand it out to people that make a difference in the blogosphere. I like to make it a award for all to enjoy and pass out if one so wants to, I just ask if your going to give it out to link back to me as the creator of the Van Gogh's Ear Award.

Inspiration of the Van Gogh's Ear Award

You may know the story of Vincent Van Gogh a well known artist in history. Although a brilliant painter in his later years went quite insane he received the nickname of fou roux ("the redheaded madman"). The most bazaar of Vincent's behavior is when he cut off the lower part of his own left ear lobe, which he wrapped in newspaper and gave to a prostitute named Rachel in the local brothel, asking her to keep this object carefully. After this he suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness, which led to his suicide July 29, 1890 he was 37 years old. His works of art are priceless.

The point of this award

We are all artist in are own way be it art, photography, writing, philosophy, comedy, blogging and we all go a little crazy sometimes. But if you ever feel so crazy to cut off your ear and give it to a prostitute, you may need to seek a mental health professional!!
Always remember you're unique.
Just like everyone else.

  5. Janet, Congratulations on the award. It is so nice to be appreciated. Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing about your mother. That is a warm and sensitive story. I know what you mean about your mother and how appreciative she was of your kindness. My mother was in a nursing home and always liked her gown and robe coordinated. As she had 4 daughters we all took turns seeing that she was pleased about how she looked.

    My mother has been gone for several years and I still miss her, so I know how you must feel the loss of your mother as it has only been a short time.

    Thank you again for the lovely comments on my blog.
