Awards -- Blogs I have loved.

Two Blogs in one day!  Wow.  For me, a record.

Today I received this wonderful award from my blogger and artist friend
Black Pumpkin.
Thank you.  What a great idea!  To share with others the gems we have found..
This is a pay it forward award.
Here are the rules:
1) Thank you the blogger who gave it to you.
2) Award 15 of your favorite or recently discovered blogs and let them know you nominated them. They will then award their favorite blogs.
3) Share 7 interesting things that people may not already know about you.
Of course, I had a hard time choosing my 15 blogs. There are so many fine bloggers.  I'm sure I will forget some of my favorites, but I'll give it a try.

Here is my list -- in no particular order: 

Traci Bunkers: Welcome to My World
How to be Creative 
Love Life Back
Shelly Beauch

And now the 7 things you might not know about me:
  1.  I'm the only daughter of the oldest daughter of the oldest daughter in a family that hands things down through the female line (Like secret fudge receipees and stories)
  2.  I am an old movie buff (I like current movies too)
  3.  I adore trivia, especially movie or historical trivia
  4.  I have written three children's books (no, not published) &  3/4 of a novel about Isis
  5.  Most folks learn through pain (I certainly do), but I am trying to also learn through Joy.
  6.  I love public speaking (and I'm good at it too -- she said modestly)  After all, in my working life, I was a Preacher.
  7. As a licensed minister, I married over 70 couples before Prop 8 was passed.


  1. Thank you, dear!! You deserve it!:)

  2. I am honored. Thank you so much!

  3. Thank you so much for including my "Doodle Daily" blog in your awards list. You have no idea how much I appreciate that. I am 21 days away from posting my 1000th daily doodle and it's knowing that special folk like you are following and enjoying the doodles that keeps me going. You know my motto "Unite the world 1 doodle at a time" and I am just doing my piece.

    Thanks for your kind words.

  4. Thank you very, very much for awarding my blog. I´m always following yours with great interest ;-)…

    BlackPumpkin awarded me as well - and I have to repeat what I told her. I´m really flattered about this prize. But unfortunately I can´t follow its requirements.

    Nevertheless I`m more than proud to be nominated.
