Versatile Is My Blog's Middle Name
Recently Lynette at Sweet Posy Dreams received the Versatile Blogger Award (yay!) which meant that she in turn was compelled to bestow the award to other bloggers - and lo and behold, she chose my blog as one of the recipients. I'd seen the "button" on blogs here and there - and now I've got one of my own for Dough, Dirt & Dye! There's just a few administrative things I need to do:
A) Thank the Bestower:
Thank you, Lynette! If you haven't found her blog yet, click here and go check it out. I enjoy chatting with Lynette via our blogs. I'm always interested to see what she's been up to in the kitchen and reading stories about her "ordinary" life in the Midwest. And she always has beautiful antique and vintage items to share as well (visit her Etsy shop here).
B) Share Seven Factoids About Myself:
1) I can neither sew, knit nor crochet.
2) My first "real" job during college summer break was in a bookbinding factory; I restored the bindings on antique and rare volumes.
3) I thought I'd grow up and either be an actress or an archeologist. I stuck with the "As" and became an artist.
4) I can't love beets no matter how much I try.
5) I once had a brindle cat named Squirrel Nutkin, after the Beatrix Potter book/character; and a gray tabby named, Big. I still miss them both.
6) Someday I'd love to live in the mountains - and right next to the ocean - with a view of red rock country - in a thick, hardwood forest - on rolling, grass-covered hills that stretch for miles.
7) I did not inherit my mother's green thumb.
C) Pass It On
I am passing the VB luv on to some of my fellow bloggers. Without further ado, here are the 15 I've chosen - a nice mix (I think) of the personal, the crafty and the foody:
Bacon Is Not An Herb
Cabin + Cub
Handmade In Israel
I Am Nanny Anna
Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler
Ms Val's Creations
Our Home to Yours
The Good Luck Duck
So About What I Said...
The Inspired Lens
Now, fabulous fifteen, the torch is in your hands. Go forth and be Versatile!
