Courtney Made My Day!

Tomorrow is my two month-iversary blogging. I just logged on and got a sweet surprise - an email telling me I'd won an award! It just happens to be my very first one. Thank you Courtney, from The Apprentice Extrovert for sharing this Versatile Blogger award with me! You have made my day.

If you guys haven't visited The Apprentice Extrovert, stop by and check her out. Courtney's one amazingly talented, tasteful and versatile Aussie!  Her style is fresh and eclectic. Case in point:

The rules for this award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave the award to you
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Send it along to 15 other bloggers and let them know you have awarded them!

Here are 7 things about me you might not know.......

1. I am an oldest child of teen parents who are still with me, and I adore them!
2. I have 3 young adult children, and I adore them!
3. I love foreign films, but don't get to see them much.
4. I eat pretty much anything except liver and canned spinach.
5. I love fall and winter most of all.
6. I'm currently reading slowly and loving "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp
7. I love volunteering with hospice.

Here are my 15 Versatile Blogger Nominees:
It took longer to pick 15 than I ever imagined it would! There are so many great blogs I love to follow. I'm passing the award onto these wonderful blogs, who also happen to be sweet, polite and lovely ladies. Some of them are relatively new, and you may not have seen them before. Please stop by and check them out. You'll be so glad you did!

1. Villa Barnes - Rosemary is so generous with tutorials & product information!
2. The Feathered Nest - Dawn does amazing collages with vintage ephemera and fabrics.
3. Cedar Hill Ranch  Anita has a beautiful ranch, and she's so creative!
4. Knick of Time - Angie loves the old stuff, and she does great things with it.
5. Shabby Story - Lynn has some great ideas!
6. Burlap Luxe - if you love texture, patina and a neutral palette, Dore is your go-to girl!
7. Out Junking - Lisa finds THE coolest stuff and uses it in such creative ways.
8. Capers of the Vintage Vixens - This mom-daughter team is fearless!
9. Art@Home - Ricki Jill loves all forms of art and incorporates it beautifully into her home and life.
10. Modern Country Style - Sarah is featuring the home in "Something's Gotta Give" now. Yumm.
11. The Midwest Cottage - Liz is working on some really cool burlap pillows in her latest post.
12. The Dedicated House - Kathryn's style is classic, but with a twist!
13. The Ivy Cottage - Talk about versatile! Amanda is a renaissance woman.
14. Walnut and Vine - Rebecca and Wanda are excellent at staging with vintage pieces.
15. Wayside Treasures - Sandi finds the coolest stuff and does great things with it.

Word for the Day:

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Have a blessed Sunday!
