Blog Awards!

Well I have had a big week on the blog award front. Boy you ladies are pretty wonderful!
And I just noticed this is my 100th post!

Both Travia and Browniris sent me the Stylish Blog Award

I also received the VersaThe Versatile Blogger Award from the wonderful Summastarlet
(make sure you stop by her blog and give her a nice hi -she has had a rough go lately and we could always use an extra bit of support)

The rules for accepting this award are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

Since I ended up with both of these I’ll do a few more than 7 little tidbits -

1. I am not a big ‘outside’ kind of person. When I was younger my Dad use to say I ran and hid anytime an activity involved being outside. Honestly its that that I do not like being hot and have suffered from allergies all my life.

2. With that being said I love decorating with Trees. I have pictures of trees, an odd tree log statue thing (no idea what to call it), cherry blossom branches and even a huge tree mural in my living room painted by my best friend.

3. I love Internet shopping and finding great deals. I have a lot of websites that I check out each day for daily deals.

4. In addition to deals, I also love originally things so I adore Etsy. A few of my favorite shops include ones like:
Dainty Jewelry , my husband got me a necklace from this shop once and our bedroom has this wonderful set of prints
5. I have short hair, have for a very long time. Longer hair just looks stupid on me. It ranges from pixie short to pretty short. Sometimes it is a bit hard to girly up with short hair so I love adding in flowers or feathers like these . The best part about it, my husband loves it. He is not a long hair kind of guy so it works out just right.

6. I already know how I will decorate a baby’s room once we get to that point. (you can probably guess) I came across this artist a few years ago while visiting Asheville, NC and fell in love. So one day we will have a tree mural like this one here or here.
7. One of my customers told me yesterday that I have a voice like warm honey. I don’t know about that but it was pretty funny.

8. I am a TV addict! Reality, vampires, kid shows, new shows, blue shows, old shows :)

9. I love reading even more than TV. About a year and half ago I started a book club and it is one of the best things I get to do each month.

10. I had a job interview today (wish me luck!)

11. I love most anything Disney. When I was younger I collected Sleeping Beauty items including a few snow globes and marketing items.

12. I have a history of twins from both sides of my family. Sometimes I secretly hope that we’ll end up with twins and other days it just terrifies me.
Now I am suppossed to pick out a few blogs to award these two. But I've got to run and I think these have been making the rounds lately so if you already have one or both of these please just pass it along to one more person. If you have not recieved one yet, then grab them up and share with us your tidbits of you.


  1. How did the job interview go? I love reading random facts about people..always learn something new and interesting!

    I LOVE Disney too!!!

  2. I hope your job interview went well.

    I love reading lists like this, I'm not exactly outdoorsy either, it's the allergies here too. When I lived in England I had no allergies and liked being outside so much more, now I'm home the allergies are back and it sucks.

  3. Dropping by to let you know that I have also awarded you a Blog Award. Take a peek at my blog post called: - I LOVE THESE BLOGS AWARD - when you get a chance! =)
