Oh, I say!

Well well well, looks like I got me an award!  Whoop!

I have been nominated by the lovely for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

and shock, gasp  The Versatile Blogger Award

I must (no really, I must, it is in the rules) nominate others for the same awards and it has been an easy and joyous task picking these blogs out!

I have to confess when I saw that I had to find 15 deserving blogs, I thought I might have to start digging about.  Absolutely not, all of the blogs I have listed I have read and I enjoy reading them and the photos,  stories,  photographs,  crafts, recipes and general fabulousness contained within each.

Some of these bloggers I have met and started to read through participating in the JustB blog school headed up by Pip Lincolne of Meet Me At Mikes.  Without the blog school I am almost certain that I would be posting once a month at the most and my blog would be a wandering mess.  As it is, I am very proud of my spiffy blog and am equally proud to nominate these 15 spiffy blogs.

I have lots to work on and every day I find some other new idea to add to my blog either as content or a little something I need to add to my presentation.  I have discovered blog hops, link – ups, buttons, swaps and now awards!  So much to learn and improve and work on.  It all makes my brain hurt and I love it all!  So here are the wonderful blogs I am nominating along with a single word of description for each!

There’s a catch for all of you lovely award winners (not really, just stuff to do!).  The rules of the awards are:

1. Display the logos of the awards on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

3. State seven things about yourself.

4. Nominate fifteen other bloggers for this award and link to them.

5. Notify these bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirement.

Here are my seven things

1. I am a Brit abroad, living in the Mid West of America, originally from Lincoln, England.

2.  I have a degree in Fashion Design

3.  I am a jewelry designer and my little business is called catseatdogs

4.  In the 80’s I was a goth, but I couldn’t get my hair to stand up on end, even when I had attacked it with crimpers (ha, remember them!?)


Oh my, would you look at that.  1984 in all of it’s glory! Note the floppy, not spikey hair..

5.  I wish I could draw well.

6.  Baking is my guaranteed pick me up!



7.  I love to treasure hunt yard sales, estate sales, jumble sales, charity shops, junk shops, flea markets and antique shops.

  1. Thank you so much for honoring me with this award. I’m bit embarrassed to say that I’m not really good at participating in these memes as I let the task of making that list often fall by the wayside. If I do get a chance to do it (sometime next week I’m thinking) then I will definitely let you know. Thanks again! 🙂

  3. Wow Clare, thanks for thinking of me 🙂 Theres a lovely story on my blog today about a music festival in my home town – its extra long so nice for a read over a cuppa if you have time. Let me know what you think! I’ll most certainly hop to it and attend to my duties as a blog award winner 😉 xx
