Today I am honoring Millie Thom of England, who is, among her many other attributes,
–a fellow Iceland enthusiast, which is how we found each other on the blogosphere (although she has the distinction of actually having been to Iceland, whereas I’m merely in the planning stages of a trip there);
–a published author of wonderful books in historical, cultural, and geographical settings that we are both drawn to (England and Scandinavia in the early- to middle- Medieval period–think Vikings and/or Alfred the Great); her latest volume, Wyvern of Wessex, is part of an amazingly well-researched and -written historical fiction series called Sons of Kings. They are all available on Amazon in Kindle format, and I highly recommend it and its preceding books;
–a WordPress blogger with many other awards to her name for her own blog, Millie Thom: Bringing History to Life, which is one that you really should follow, if you haven’t already;
–AND, most relevant to this particular award, the person who has read and commented on, thoughtfully and kindly, the most posts from my blog in one sitting! ❤
And we’ve never even met in real life! 😛
This feat in itself is indeed worthy of an honor!
As to the award pictured above, it was labeled merely a “gold Viking goblet,” on Pinterest. I found it upon doing a Google search, my third or fourth one, after earlier search terms proved unsatisfactory. This time I used the terms “images medieval cup.”
I do wonder, however, how “tippy” this goblet might be, were it put to use. Look at its narrow base, contrasting with the broad area for holding mead or other wine.
Luckily Millie doesn’t have to put it to that test, but only gaze on its beauty! ❤
Timi, how did I miss this? How thoughtful and kind you are for even thinking of me. I haven’t been on my blog since the last time we spoke in September, when I’m sure I bored you to tears with my ‘catch up’ comments on your posts. I am totally honoured to have you present me with an award for it!
Btw. I was about to do more catching up today, but perhaps I should just leave a ‘like’ on some of your posts to prevent you getting RSI (which I already have, BIG TIME!).
Please accept my sincere apologies for missing this, Timi. You must have thought me a totally rude, ungrateful, ignoramus! Believe it or not, I have a Pinterest account, too – but that’s even more neglected than my blog!
Rather than bombarding you with questions about how you are, I’ll first read more of your posts. I might just HAVE to make the odd comment or two, though. 😀 ❤

I wasn’t at all worried that you hadn’t commented on this, Millie. I figured you were not following blogs for now, because you were probably writing another wonderful book! I’m on my phone right now, or else I’d send you a heart emoticon! 🙂
