One Lovely Blog Award...

Well, I was shocked, when I received the wonderful comment from Renee at 'Living My Dream', letting me know that she had nominated my blog for the One Lovely Blog Award.
Thank you so much Renee, I am very appreciative of the nomination!

The purpose of this award is for bloggers to nominate fellow, mostly newer, bloggers that they wish to recognize. The goal is to bring attention to blogs that we think are "lovely" and enjoy reading. We hope others will enjoy reading these blogs also.
In order to accept the award, the nominated blogger must follow these rules:
  • Thank the person who nominated you & link back to them in your post
  • Share seven facts about yourself
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers for the award
My seven facts...
(This was hard, since I've written numerous about me posts.)
1) I love watching murder mystery shows!
(Some of my favorites are Castle, CSI: New York, Elementary, Psych, Monk, etc.)
And, I am always on the lookout for more!

2) I really, really wish I could draw!
It is the one skill I have always wanted, but I've just never been good at it. (Honestly, I can't even draw a straight line with a ruler.)

3) I have tried to learn to crochet (several times), but have never had any luck with it.
(I can usually do 2 rows and then everything falls apart.)

4) My favorite scent is Vanilla.
(I made a whole separate section for my Etsy shop, dedicated to Vanilla fragrances, because I love them so much.)

5) I have been spoiled by handmade soap!
(I seriously won't buy soap at the store anymore.  I'll only buy it at my favorite Etsy shop: Linger Bath and Body.)

6) My favorite color is blue and my least favorite color is pink.

7) I am terrified of snakes and heights!

All right, now I have pick 10 blogs to nominate for the award...
(This was not easy at all!)

There we go...
...definitely the hardest decision I've had to make in awhile!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!


  1. Congratulations on your award. You have mentioned 7 fascinating and very different facts about yourself. And you've nominated me as one of your ten! Thank you soooooo much! :)

    1. Thanks Rachel and you're very welcome! (I always look forward to reading your blog, you've done so many fantastic projects and I'm always excited to see your progress.)

  2. Congratulations on your nomination..This is a very lovely blog! And those facts about yourself are fun!

  3. I go through phases with favorite colors and pink frequently makes its way in, but other than that, we have a lot in common! :) I'll have to check out the Etsy soap shop you mentioned. I look forward to checking out the blogs you nominated! (That really is the hardest part, isn't it?! There are so many wonderful blogs!)

  4. Congratulations! Oh my. Reading your facts was like reading some of mine, 1,3,6 (i don't hate pink so much tho, got nieces, lol). My dvd collection consists of Castle, Psych, Monk, NCIS, Mentalist, Dexter, White Collar (and some awesome horror movies, haha). Thanks for the nomination (are you in your right mind? Lol. Hugs!)

  5. Congratulations on your award. Very interesting facts too. I cam draw but I'd love to be able to sing.
    I am so envious of those people who just burst into song, I used to work behind a bar with a girl like that, she had a lovely voice.

  6. Oh my heavens thank you so much for the nomination but I think you should take it back since it took me so long to notice lol. And congrats to you on receiving the award! I also love vanilla, when I buy something and there is a vanilla option that is the one I will get. And I have been spoiled by Lush Shampoo Bars, I will never buy shampoo in a bottle again! Thanks again :)
