Now That's Style!

Many of you have seen the Stylish Blogger Award being passed around and Julia has nominated me/my Blog for the mention. Many of you have already awarded fellow Bloggers I regularly read and are my top 10 favorites. Thank you Julia for the opportunity to share a bit MORE about myself with the best part being able to share other Blogs to share. One of the cool things about these various Blog awards is that the recognition provides an opportunity to click outside our routine internet surfing and check out some other great sites you might not have otherwise stumbled upon. The world is so full of talented people and cool places I’m sometimes overwhelmed. My to-do, want-to-learn, need-to-meet and must-go-see lists are overflowing! My friend Julia is living the life that many of us can only dream about. They raise their own food. Do you know how hard that would be? Well, Julia and her family are doing it and you can read of their not so easy adventures on her Blog, Henhouse Pottery. I enjoy reading Julia’s Blog because not only is it always well written but I can be a e-voyeur-farmer while having my morning tea!

So, as I’m sure you have read on other Blogs that were nominated there are 4 requests:

1) Thank the person who gave you the award, by providing a link to their site.

2) Share 7 things about yourself, that other bloggers might not know.

3) Give the Award to 15 newly discovered or interesting bloggers (I had even more).

4) Notify each of those bloggers to present the Award (I’ll try).

7 things about myself that you might not know and are not too offensive:

- I’m a voracious reader –I read a book (novels of all genres) about every 10 days.

- I go to the thrift store every week (where I buy my books for about 35 cents).

- I’m just over 6’ tall.

- I cried when Mr. Rogers died.

- I am afraid of the dark.

- I love dark and white chocolate but I don’t like milk chocolate.

- I’m a terrible baker.

And in no particular order I’d like to introduce you to 15 other Blogs I enjoy reading and hope you’ll find at least one new link from these, or a link from one of their links!

Contgrats, that is such a cute photo of you, you afraid of the dark, I never would have guessed, I'm with you on the chocolate, though.

Congratulations, Cindy! I love your blog and would vote for it any day! And you have great taste. I could spend(and have spent)hours just going from blog to blog on your site.

Mr. Rogers. Really?

Tracey Broome said...

I have a very similar photo of me as a little girl. What was wrong with our mothers, dressing us like that! And now look at us haha!

Connie said...

Hi Cindy! You are stylin' and congrats!! I was very surprised when I saw my blog on your list! Thank you so much. I will work on my new assignment!

cindy shake said...

thanks guys :o) My mom has more style than I ever will and my sister and I were stylin' cute thanks to her -I'm not sure what happened to me though, I think I found polar fleece and Carhartt's -ha!

Mr. Rogers really loved children and his passion for teaching was gentle and inspiring -he just went about it very unconventionally.

Connie! You have the best interviews and your work ROCKS!!

I cried when Jim Henson died, too. He's on my list of artists who left this world before the best of their work could be enjoyed. That list also includes John Denver...

Thank you for saying such nice things about my blog and linking back to me!

I love the picture...what great little white gloves! Bet your mom didn't know then you'd trade those little lady gloves in for WELDING gloves! LOL
