Back in April one of my readers, Christi (website, "living green in a colourful world") at this link below
nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger Award. I kept trying to remember to fulfill the requirements and have now finally gotten to it. Sorry for such a delay Christi! And thank you for the honour.
Here are 7 things you probably don't know about me:
- I collect old paragon porcelain tea cups and accessories - in the fancy patterns with lots of gilding and those lovely dish style cups.
- I have been following Flylady for a while and it appears to be working (most days, lol) - google her to see what that's all about - hint, it helps me stay sane in a chaotic home.
- Houseplants stand no chance against my black thumb of death - outside ones do fare better
- I used to have pet rats
- I work in conflict resolution
- I like soft boiled eggs with buttered toast 'soldiers' when I'm sad. It's a comfort food that reminds me of my grandmother
- I used to volunteer for the SPCA and spent a couple of years as a volunteer coordinator since I loved it so much. (that's where all our fur-babies came from)
Now it's my turn to nominate some pretty awesome blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Definately worth a peek - and you may just have to follow them so you don't miss out! Here they are:
- Rhondi over at Rhondis Rose Covered Glasses http://rhondisrosecoloredglasses.blogspot.com/ has a beautiful blog and she just had a porch party. A must go see - I loved it!
- Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/ also has a wonderful and creative blog. She's got her first book coming out! And I have to say, her little baby book on the blog is just so sweet. Go take a look
- Tracy at The Enchanted Cottage http://seasideenchantment.blogspot.com/ inspires me. In her new home, she is having fun making it her own - and she's writing a story A Change of Heart. Go and take a look (the story beginnings are on the left in the side bar under 'my writings')
- Heidi at All My Scattering Moments
http://allmyscatteringmoments.blogspot.com/ will inspire you with her talent - she's an amazing quilter and I think she has a way with displaying things to look so pretty.
- Rhonda over at If You Do Stuff - Stuff Gets Done http://ifyoudostuff.blogspot.com/ (don't you just love that name?) shows you that's exactly true! I love her blog - and can't figure out how she gets it all done. Yep, she's got talent!
- Robin - Life with Robin http://lifewithrobin.blogspot.com/ shows off her nest. And Robin has been developing quite the photographic talent (get it?) I love looking at all her pictures.
- Lesley has a new blog Country Roses and Roots http://countryrootsandroses.blogspot.com/ that I think you will love. Beautiful pictures and some great thoughts there.
