Passing it Along

Suzan from Old Grey Mare has honored me with a Stylish Blogger Award
Thank you Suzan! 

Maybe some of you have gotten awards before and it's no big deal but for someone to take notice of my little old blog, well for me, it's a big deal.  Warm fuzzys all weekend.

So here are the award rules:
Receive the award, 
say thank you, 
reveal 7 things about yourself, 
pass it on to 10 favorite and stylish bloggers!

7 things about me.....
Oh boy, here we go!
I'm number 5 of 8 kids, 4 boys and 4 girls.  Yes, Catholic.

I grew up in a teeny tiny town in Upper Michigan, not northern, Upper, there's a difference.

We live in Texas now but look forward to the day we can move back to the mid-west, preferably Minnesota.

I am a horrific speller.  And spell check is making me even dumber.

I over use explanation points!!!  
Can't help it!!!  
I'm just so darn excited by all the cool stuff I see blogging!!!

I'm afraid of creepy crawly things, heights, the dark, and sleeping with the closet door open.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that, besides my engagement ring, I'd rather wear rhinestones than diamonds.

10 Favorite and Stylish Bloggers.....
 This part took the longest, picking just 10 blogs to mention, anyway, here goes.....

Theresa because she's so passionate about her family, creativity, and generosity in sharing.

Debra and Nicole because mother/daughter sharing a passion for vintage.

Because of all the places she goes and all the eye candy pictures she takes.
Angela because of her junkin' purchases, good thing we're blogging friends because we'd fight for finds if we went shopping together.

The Pfarkel sisters because I would love to be junkin' with my sisters in the beautiful mid-west!
Jane because she's just so darn clever with all her creations.

Tamarah because this funny lady makes the world smaller.

Theresa because of all things white.

Pammy because of the things she likes to make and because I never laughed harder than at this post:

Vintage Junk in My Trunk 
Gina because again someone else I shouldn't go shopping with.

So there you have it.  Thank you again Suzan for the opportunity to tell you all a little bit about myself and about some of the lovely blogs I follow.

  4. THANK YOU!!!!!!! oh btw... I use ... and !!! way too mcuh but i can't seem to help myself!!!!! Do you think there is a support group for us somewhere, with a junking excursion afterwards? Not only do we have that in common but I would rather where rhinestones than diamonds too, after we watched blodd diamond I told Duane that on the off chance that he was even considering EVER buying me a ring or piece of jewelry I would only want it to be old and never a diamond!
