MIMOSA AWARD



I chose a couple of days ago to color my blog background Pantone's new color for 2009 -- MIMOSA

Mimosa Embodies Hopefulness and Reassurance in a Climate of Change

Pantone announced PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.
“The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.”


So I decided to create a MIMOSA AWARD and give it to some very wonderful people who epitomize hope and reassurance every day in their blogs. According to Pantone "The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance. Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation." The following bloggers are all these things!

I give this award today to

Terry of Canadian Blogger

Jamie of Duward Discussion

Daryl of On the m104

Sandy of Writing in Faith

Mo of It's A Blog Eat Blog World

Dianne of Forks Off the Moment

I would like to hold on to this award for a while so I can give it out again. No one has to pass it on. However if you post about the award or put it in your sidebar please link back to me.

Mary,
That's a beautiful color and a very sweet award.

I need to do some work on the blog this weekend and will display your generous gift. Thanks so much.

Your visits to my blog are an assurance in a time of change, too. And I love coming here for the good dose of good spirits. Always just right.
