I won an award....

Last night while going through my blog comments I found that one of my readers, Helen, aka Rumtruffle (don't you just love that name!) over at A Crafty Kind of Truffle picked me as one of her choices to win the 'Stylish Blog' award!  If you get a chance please go and check out her blog, it is so full of great crafts and today she has up some really cute pictures that started my day off with a good chuckle.  Thanks again Helen, I am glad you enjoy my blog!!

There are 4 duties to perform to receive this award:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

OK, 7 things about me that you don't know:

1)  I am eclectic in everything, food, music, TV, movies, reading, travel, you name it.  I am a true believer in "variety is the spice of life".

2)  I Love photography and will find ANY excuse to take a picture, I also love to see others creative photography.

3)  I am a stay at home mom of three cats and a dog.  The dog we drove down to southern Wisconsin for, the three cats all arrived via the cat stork right to my back door.  Just call me the crazy cat lady.

4)  I am related to Frank and Jesse James on my dad's side of the family, my dad was their 2nd cousin and when I am really cranky I blame it on the "outlaw gene".

5)  I am not afraid of spiders, snakes, bats, rats or mice.  I love every critter, no matter how "creepy" people think they are.

6)  I got an iPad for Christmas and love it, I am looking forward to taking it on vacation instead of lugging the laptop around.

7)  I am, on rare occasions, a mystery shopper and its really fun to get paid to go eat or watch a move or go shopping.

 I would like to pass this award onto the following:

Three Acre Homestead  10 Steps to Finding your Happy Place  The Blogger Brodcast  Cat Chat  The Cottage Bookshelf  Fabulous Frugalista  Freaky Frugalite  Inside of a Dog  Joanies Random Ramblings  Karen's Journal  Marilyn's Money  One Mixed Bag  Sky my Camera!  Thrift Shop Romantic  Wendy's Photos
