Superior Scribbler Award!! :)

YAY! Mrs Green of the awesome MyZerowaste.com and also awesome Little Green Blog has honoured me with a Superior Scribbler Award! (Check out some of the other winners, they are pretty fab too!)

I totally ADORE MyZerowaste blog's quirky and fun adventures of one family's road to zero waste and The Little Green Blog is full of wonderful surprises too! Check out Change the World Wednesday!
There’s tips on how to go healthier and more eco, and lovely tidbits from daily life!

Superior Scribbler Award Guidelines

1. Each Superior Scribbler, must in turn, pass the Award on to 5 most-deserving bloggy friends.
2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and name of the blog from whom he/she has received the Award.
3. Each Superior Scribbler must display the Award on his/her blog and link to this post which explains the Award.
4. Each blogger who wins the Award must visit this post and add his or her name to the Mr. Linky List at the Scholastic-Scribe’s blog. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who wins this prestigious Award!
5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

And who gets the award? Honestly, I had sleepless nights over this!
So many awesome blogs out there!
Well, this time... drumroll... the awards go to:

Blah to TaDa! – Seriously awesome ideas for making boring everyday objects fab! (I find myself wondering, “Now how can I make this Blah to TaDa?”) Creative recycling at its best! - I adore Claire's ice-cream ideas! And the honey bears!

Work With What You've Got - Honestly, this blog keeps inspiring me!* Erin teaches us how to look fabulous on a budget and liberate your Inner Diva with - well, what you got! She also makes awesome jewelry, often with re-used materials!
*And it's not just in regard to clothes! I found myself re-filing all my files according to GTD method, telling myself to, well, 'Work with what you've got!'

Jen@Clean Bin – she and her man Grant and their roommate Rhiannon managed to do no shopping for a year (can you imagine?) except for food and such (and occasional white retro 2nd hand rockstar wedding suit – don’t ask!) and they made sooo little waste - can't wait to see the movie they're making about it! Awesome trailer!
The films and photos on their website made me and Mum realize how this eco thing/zero waste week could be possible!

Danda@Dandaworld blog, Italy – she’s started eco blogging about the time I have, and still has a better recycling station than I do – and a bilingual blog! Full of wonderful surprises – eco and otherwise! (And you can learn Italian at the same time!)

Mrs Almost Average@The Rubbish Diet - I was greatly inspired by both her and Mrs Green of MyZerowaste to start this trash-reduction in the family kitchen too and try to make my family green-er! (and go public with it!;) If you want tips on how to make less waste, and a healthy dose of chuckle, check out her blog and her Archives!

Sooz @The Last Biscuit Fairy-Pirate-Hippy-Dreamer-Eco-Girl... – how can you not LOVE that name? And because she’s planted garlic in a pot! (I wonder what will happen?) Honestly, how can you not love the name of her blog? :)
She's also implementing some awesome eco lifestyle changes - and staying stylish with it! Will probably also win the Most Promising Trash Reductionista award!! :) Watch out ladies!

Oops, that's six! (I hope the award police won't catch me! Couldn't decide!!)

There are so many other awesome blogs out there, so it’s really difficult to name just a few – there will be other awards for you guyz!! :)


  1. My dear Layla...THANK YOU so much for the lovely award! I am very honored. Thanks also for featuring the other eco-friendly blogs...they totally rock!

  2. Wooow!!! Thank you very very much, Layla!!! Of course I'm very glad, especially for the wonderful words you said about me! And also happy to know more eco-blogs (i.e. I totally ignored The Little Green Blog... simply great!).
    I have serious problems to follow all the world of bloggers both in Italian and English, because I have very little time! But I'll try to follow at least those you suggested.
    But now I'm honestly also very worried. During last weeks I received other blog awards and I found very hard to choose some among those I follow! Every blog deserves to be winner, as yours too! ;)

  3. That's fab news. Thank you Layla, you're wonderful. I can't wait to share it and now need to get my thinking cap on to narrow it down. By the way, hello to everyone else too. I'm glad to be in such lovely company :-D x

  4. Wonderful choices and some new gems for me to discover too - love the blah to tada idea and can't wait to get stuck in to the 'work with what you've got' site! And thank you for the lovely things you said about my b logs.

    Loving that typewriter too - that's just beautiful!

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Thank you so much Layla! You've made my day and given me warm 'n' fuzzies! :D :D :D :D :D
    I'm going to have to think long and had about who I'm going to award now! Thank you! :D xxx

  6. p.s. my pots of garlic are about to star in a blog post very soon!

  7. Congratulations on the award! :) thanks for sharing other awesome eco-friendly blogs with us :)

    I tagged you by the way...
    I hope you don't mind? :)


  8. Great to see you here, all you fabulous ladies!! :)

    I am soo happy to be able to read your awesome blogs, and share the eco love and inspiration!

    You know, I am MUCH greener than this time last year, and even enjoying gardening! (Who would have thought?!!) And this is partly all your fault! :)

    Danda and others, please don't worry too much - it's all about sharing eco LOVE or OTHER awesome blogs!
    If your readers are mostly Italian, maybe point out some Italian blogs (or at least such with translator buttons - still haven't figured out how to get one!)

    Take your time - there are no prescriptions on when to post an award! (Maybe you can post this one for Christmas?;)

    I'm quite happy with one award a month too :)
    Let's not get too presumptuous, he he...

    lol about the tag, Kay - will take a look.. I was hoping the tag would be for GREEN items, hmm!! :)

  9. Oh, and Thank you, for the Congratulations! :)

    Big congratulations to all of you too, for being so fabulous!! :)
