Awards, AWARDS! I love these things!

Blogland has been sooooo generous to me!  I started blogging just a few weeks ago, and yet I have forged friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.  Several of these very giving folks have freely shared their time in order to explain, educate, and enlighten me and my readers.  Many have encouraged, motivated and shared their talents with me. Last week three of these lovely ladies bestowed upon me great honors...  I have shared with you my Preppy Mafia crown gift from darling Housewife Bliss.  Today I would love to acknowledge and thank two other fabulously giving bloggers:

Thank you so much Christina from Greige, who has awarded me with the Beautiful Blogger award. Christina writes a very celebrated blog and runs several business, one of them is My Sparrow, an online shop that I'd love for you all to visit. I am specially enamored with her table and glass ware selections. 

 In order to accept this award, I must share 7 things about me.  So here we go:
  1. I love to eat food with my hands... lobster, crabs, pizza, pomegranates... it is a fun experience when I allow myself to be messy, which is unlike my nature. I have been working on being messier in other facets of my life.  My son is making the learning curve disappear pretty quickly.
  2. I love the color blue.
  3. I love nature: gardening,the beach, snow covered mountains, the sound of falling leaves.
  4. I love video games, specially the adventure ones like King's Quest or any of the Laura Croft versions.
  5. I love British Literature.  The Lady of The Lake is one of my favorites.
  6. I wake up in the middle of the night to listen to George Noory on Coast to Coast.
  7. I worked for Enron, became an American citizen, got married, moved to New Jersey then Europe back to Jersey and then Knoxville TN, and witnessed 9/11 from my window all in the same year.
I would like to pass on this award to these other lovely bloggers:

"This award means you're really going places, Baby. You'll still be blogging about your great adventures 10 years from now, and I'll still be reading them."

 To add icing to my already delicious cake, the vibrant, sweet and artistically talented Hope Chella has sent my way her love with the You Are Going Places award. I think that I might still be sharing my experiences in 10 years, but hopefully in a different kind of medium.  Blogging may just be passe by then?...  We all must evolve.

 Thank You Hope for choosing me.  And now I am passing on the You Are Going Places award to:
Have a fun weekend you all!

Silvia C said...

Well deserved awards, Catherine. Your blog is lovely. I never heard about The Lady of the Lake. I might need to read that one (love to read!). It's fun to know about you. Take care, doll.

Pattie - I am not hating it. :)

Carissa - you are so cute!

Herself - I am thankful that in Brazil we didn't have popularity contests in school... it was all about the grades. But thank you for thinking of me as popular. Kisses!

Raina - your wisdom bucket is bottomless and your wit is boundless. People NEED to hear what you have to say :)

OneCraftyFox - thank you, dear.

Splenderosa - thank you... just keep writing your lovely posts... that is all the award I need.

The Buzz - you do have a gorgeous and unique blog. I love it that they are all so original.

Casa Bella - that is a poem written by Sir Walter Scott. It has several references to neoplatonism and you can make lots of inferences about the lake and life. It is beautiful and insightful. Do read it.
