What a lovely surprise! A few weeks ago, I posted about my very first blog award and I nominated twelve lovely blogs for a Sunshine Award, but I had a really hard time narrowing it down! Well, the delightful Susie of Bejewelled and Beguiled and Marice of Marice's World have solved this problem in very kindly nominating me for another, so I can share the love with some more of my favourite blogs!

The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blog world (aww!).
The rules for accepting this award:
- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
- Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

And here are some of my favourites (I'm cheating and nominating the two lovely ladies above, too!) - Bejewelled and Beguiled for her stunning jewellery, inspiring photographs and amazing giveaways (naturally!) and Marice's World for her bright, funny posts and beautiful fabrics!

Today I made... for her simple, ethereal photos and pretty tutorials.

French for Cupcake for her pretty outfit posts, thoughtful musings and thoroughly indulgent recipes...sparkly marshmallow cupcakes? Oh go on then!

Just Something I Made for her generous vintage giveaways and tutorials.

Found on Folksy for their promotion and support of handmade goods on Folksy!

Gin in a Teacup for her funny posts and lovely outfits (and maybe a little because she wants a pug...)!

Teapot for One who's just started blogging but has already managed to include a pretty tasty stew recipe and a pretty pretty outfit post - I also really like her simple, clean layout, it's perfect!

Trains and Sewing Machines for her colourful inspiration posts, regular blogger features and bright creations.

LuliBags for her lovely photography, simple layout and pretty tutorials.

Pretty Much Penniless for her delicious recipes, great advice posts and just general loveliness (oh, and she has a very pretty kitchen!)!

Talk2TheTrees for her beautiful knitted and crocheted hats, including this frankly awesome one for her dog, Mowgli (a dog in a foxy hat? love it):

Skooks' Playground for her pretty tutorials and support of Bloganthropy!

Cupcake Couture for her pretty purchases, fun photos and beauty recommendations!

Who are your sunshine bloggers?

Also! Don't forget to enter my giveaway here to win this pretty pair of crocheted hair slides!

All you need to do is:

Hi Sarah! Thanks for stopping by my blog...and good luck with my giveaway! Congratulations on your awards! ... I'd love a chance to win your pretty hair slides. I checked into your shop, and your things are so adorable, it was hard to pick a favorite! I loved all your crocheted pins (of course!) and I really liked your tulip Mother's Day card too, but like I said, everything was so cute, and it was hard choosing!... I really don't have any favorite things to read on blogs. That's what makes it so never know what your going to find each day!
