Lovely Blogs...15 of Them!
Janet, from Honey from the Bee, nominated my little blog as one of her 15 lovelies that she often follows. I was really surprised and giddy, as I hold Janet's blog, writing, jewelry, and photography in such high esteem. You know when something just speaks to you? That feeling you get? I get that feeling at Honey From the Bee. I don't comment a lot but I always visit. I like it there.
I will make a list of 15 shortly and would love to put Janet on my list, but instead of looping, I will continue to pay it forward.
So when you are nominated, the rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated your blog. THANK YOU JANET!!! I appreciate your kindness and your warmth.
2. Tell 7 facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to 15 newly discovered blogs. Since I have only been doing this for 6 months, it is a sliding scale as to what I consider "newly discovered".
7 facts about me:
*I am a sucker for a redhead & a big, long, skinny nose. If he had red hair, I dated him. I cannot help it. When my husband grew his beard, it came in red and I was elated that I married a redhead and didn't even know it. JACKPOT!
*I have had the same haircut for 30+ years now. BORING, but easy. I hate spending time getting myself ready to go out, so it works well for me. And I love the grey color!
*I am not competitive in the least. Unless I am playing cards. Then I play to win.
*I have a scar at the base of my neck. I like it. It is turned up, like a smile :-) I love scars...they add character, tell a story, show resilience. I hate to have my neck touched so it figures I would have to have my thyroid removed and all sorts of people would be poking my neck.
*I never forget a voice. I may forget a face, I usually forget a name, but never a voice.
*I have 2 things I spend money on without thought to how much it costs...music and beads. I cannot get through the day without music. I recently noticed a pattern. I get completely immersed in a musician for a year or more-buy all their cds, books, dvds, pour over liner notes, go to shows (if they are still alive and touring in my area). Then after that, I still love them but can just enjoy them in the mix. Even when I am into my musician of the year, I still listen to others. My most recent string of Lust includes: Gram Parsons, Steve Earle, Leonard Cohen, Warren Zevon, Woody Guthrie, and Jackson Browne. Yeah, I know...all men.
*I do not work well with others. Give me the task and the deadline and LEAVE ME ALONE.
And now, the 15 blogs I am nominating and I hope you check out:

One last thing to say: My Giveaway event is still happening. I forgot to give a date for the drawing...October 11th. Paul's Birthday. Appropriate since he was the one who convinced me to start One Kiss Creations Beaded Jewelry back in 2000 and appropriate since he was the first winner of my first giveaway. So keep the entries coming!
Have a great week!
