Wouldn't You Like to be a Panda Too, be a Panda...

I did a post last week showing off the cool stuff I won from a contest in the comment thread over at Oz Girl's. In my excitement, I posted as soon as I could after the box arrived. But Oz Girl had sent me TWO boxes. How generous is that? The second box arrived the other day and contained beautiful note cards made with Oz Girl's own design. She also included this gorgeous pitcher.

Thank-you again Oz Girl! Now, everyone please go pay her a visit. She just got her blog uplifted with a new layout and design.
Amy over at Keeping up with the Schultz Family has bestowed upon me some bloggee bling. This is a different kind of award as it is honoring commenting. Amy is a sweet and regular commenter on my blog, so I can see why she received the award herself.

The award features a Panda Bear. I love Pandas and am not quite sure how this fine animal came to be associated with comment love, but I love this image...
Thank-you Amy! Great timing on the award as several of the blogs I read have posted on commenting and commenting protocol lately. There's Smart Mouthed Broad, Braja, and IB. All great posts as well as comment threads to get an idea of what other bloggers like/don't like going on in their comment threads.
I would love to pass this on to everyone who reads my posts and leaves a comment. Amy's instructions were to pick five bloggers so I have tried to pick bloggers whose comments I enjoy regularly and to bloggers who I did not pass on the last award that came this way. But any and all commenters who love the Panda, go on and take it back to your place.
Thank-you to all who stop by and read the posts here at PseudoLand. I wish I could say I am able to keep a discussion going in my comment thread, but my timing on the computer is rarely conducive to that. I love reading your comments and appreciate each and every one of them. I especially like those who leave their email in the reply so I can get back to you personally.
If you are a reader and do not always, or even rarely/never comment, I'm OK with that too. I like to write and feel very grateful if people like to read what I write, even if they do not want to comment.

Vodka Mom said...

isn't it great to receive surprises in the mail?


There is NOTHING better than that. Well, perhaps money, but other than THAT, nothing else.

Unexpected boxes in the mail are the best!

Oh, PseudoLand is so much fun! You definitely deserve the award. As a DC-ite, I know how very special pandas are. And I totally understand why you received a second box...you know you've earned it!

that pitcher is lovely!

I'm bad at replying to comments... I barely have time to write, read, comment as it is....

blueviolet said...

Awww...you're so darn sweet! Thank you!

I like how you and I (and many others) reply back to comments through email. I never remember to go back to old posts and check to see if there was a response there, nor do I have time to do that. The email way works beautifully for me.

Hey, aren't you the award collecting woman!I'm posting an award Monday morning, part of which goes to you. I know you might be crazy busy and not into dealing with any more awards just now, so don't sweat it. Just wanted you to know I'm enjoying "knowing you" a little thru this blogging business!

VM is right. Surprises in the mail rock.

Gaston Studio said...

Congrats on the beautiful pitcher, what a fab surprise.

And congrats on the bloggie comment award, which I think is too cool because I love pandas and I love commenters who read both the post AND the comments!

And thank you so much for sharing your award with moi; it's going to look so good on my sidebar and I promise to share very soon!

i try to respond to comments via email now; it's easier for me but sometimes the "community" aspect of commenting gets lost. i do think i've gotten to know some of my commenters better though.
love the panda! : )

Casey said...

Aww, thanks for the award Pseudo! I love panda bears and I love comments so it's right up my bamboo alley.

Your new pitcher is beautimus, that must have been a nice surprise to get a second package with more goodies.

Thanks again for thinking of me!
