Versatile Blogger Award

I met Barbara from Hodge Podge a few weeks ago when through a new Canadian Bloggers group.  Since then, she has been a faithful visitor to my blog and leaves the sweetest, most encouraging comments.

A few days ago I received a message from her saying she was passing on the Versatile Blogger Award to me.  (It’s the second one I’ve received this month.  The first one was from The Uncluttered Lifestyle).


To be honest…I really didn’t even know what “receiving the award” meant!  So, I googled it and found out I was supposed to list 7 things about myself that you may not know…and then pass the award on to 7 blogs I’ve recently discovered.  Okey. Dokey.  Here we go!

7 things you may not {or already!} know about me:

1.  One of the favourite parts of my day is joining the staff at the camp we live/work at for 10:00 coffee time…

2.  …In fact…I’ve just started a new blog about that here.  (It’s still in the baby stage.  There are only 3 followers!)…

3.  My very favourite teacher of all time was my 3rd grade teacher – Mrs. Johanson.  I wanted to be her.  She had/has the most beautiful penmanship.  I spent hours upon hours trying to copy it exactly…(It currently looks nothing like hers!)

4.  My husband proposed to me on the Sulphur Mountain Gondola in Banff, Alberta…

5.  …His carefully planned engagement scenario was almost completely shut down when I uttered the words, “I don’t think I want to go on the gondola.  I’m scared of heights…”  Funny thing…I never even noticed the height!  tee hee…

6.  My oldest son graduates this year.  If I think about that for longer than 5 minutes…I want to cry.

7.  I could live on toast with peanut butter and honey and cereal…That’s why I need to go on a diet…

And now, I`m passing this award on to 7 Blogs I’ve recently discovered:

1.  Restoration House ~ I discovered this one with her amazing kitchen makeover…and she, too, lives in Canada!

2.  Meadowbrook Farm~ Beautiful photography from a fellow “Montana girl”!

3.  Finding Home~  Beautiful blog.  Beautiful inspiration pictures.

4.  Stylish Settings~  A new blogger friend from “Down Under”!

5.  Ozona– A very creative 3rd grade teacher…And you know how much I love 3rd grade teachers!

6.  That`s My Letter – I just discovered this one a few days ago.  This lady`s projects are amazing!  And each blog post title starts with a letter… Like -“T`  is for`…  So clever!

7.  Pinecone Camp – This photographer has the most amazing pictures…!`


I hope you`re all having a wonderful weekend.  I`m loving the sunshine…and the new color of my living room!  (wink wink…)
