The Versatile Blogger Award

The talented Ann from Marmalade and Catmint, has awarded me, The Versatile Blogger Award, and for this, I am truly grateful. 

I enjoy reading Ann's upbeat blog about gardening, knitting, sewing, cooking, vintage items, and of course seeing photos of her cat Marmalade. Please take a moment and visit Marmalade and Catmint, perhaps become a follower, and leave her a comment.

The Versatile Blogger Award rules are: You should pass the award on to 15 recently discovered blogs, (I am sorry, but I am only going to do 4), and let the bloggers know that they have been nominated. Share seven things about yourself. Thank the award giver and link back to their blog. Place the icon of The Versatile Blogger Award somewhere on your blog page.

Seven Things About Myself:

• I retired in June after working for 23 years in an elementary school.
• I am planning a trip in May to Hawaii, and a trip to Poland this summer.
• I love to eat at Red Lobster, the cheddar biscuits make my mouth water.
• When I visit my niece I always want to eat at the Waffle House, they take me under protest.
• I have three children and five grandchildren.
• I want to start an Etsy store, but am a little intimidated scared that people won't like my items.
• I am a professional bra fitter, certified by Maidenform.

Here, are the blogs that I have chosen to pass the award onto. Take a few moments to check out these blogs and perhaps leave a comment and maybe become a follower.


  1. Congratulations!

    You have some great trips lined up for this year. I love it when people truly enjoy their retirement.

  2. congratulations!

    ...and if I can start an Etsy store, you can start an Etsy store. I figure that anyone starting an Etsy store has a 50% chance of people liking their items, but if we don't try, we have a 100% chance that they won't ever see them.

  3. Thank you so much for The Versatile Blogger award! I feel very surprised, quite honored and very, very pleased! You have certainly made my day. Thank you so much.

  4. Congratulations on your award. I agree that Anne is a talented lady. I'm on the verge of opening an Etsy store, if we don't try we'll never know xxx

  5. congratulations! you deserve it! i hope that Etsy store you have in mind will finally be realized SOON! all the best!

  6. Thank you for including me Paulette! This is going to be fun!

    Oh, and I urge you to go for it with Etsy; I'm having a ball with my shop. :)
