I'd Like to Thank The Academy...

Well, not really.  But I would like to thank the lovely Cate for bestowing upon me my very first blog award!  Cate's blog chronicles a year in the life of a crafty, inspiring, witty mom to three kiddos, and is one of my regular reads.

As a recipient of The Stylish Blogger Award, one must:
1. thank and link back to the blogger who nominated you
2. tell 7 things about yourself
3. pass on the award to 15 recently discovered blogs
4. let them know about their nomination

So, seven things:

1. I can't parallel park.
2. I'm a Gleek.
3. I'm a newly-minted jewelry-making-addict.
4. I have a ridiculously large collection of children's books.
5. I can sing along with Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, and Kenny Rogers.
6. I eat my french fries with ketchup and mayo.
7. I've given up Scrabble in favor of Bananagrams.

And 15 blogs: (in no particular order, I swear!)

Posie Patchwork
 Make Mine Mid-Century
Cotton Kiwi
We Bloom Here
Aunt Peaches
Grab Your Wellies
Foxs Lane
Spectacular Fairy Wren


  1. You're very welcome sweety!! And yep, completely with you on the frenchfries (or chips as we like to call them!), but babe - you'll be singing your karaoke solo!!

  2. Oh why thank you. I actually accepted this award last week, so i won't be greedy, but this was the post . . .
    Not sure about mayonaise & tomato sauce on chips, wow, that is stomach stamina!!
    Parallel parking, i'm the Queen & drive a huge 4WD - i'm so good even my husband lets me park for him, that is a huge testiment to his manliness letting his wife park the family car - plenty of practise!! I have a formulae, from my driving instructor when i was 17, it's failsafe & works on any car!! Love Posie

  3. I can't believe that's your first award, Wendy! I loved your 'seven things'. I'm a fellow Gleek. LOML and I never miss a show and can regularly be seen singing and dancing up a storm along with New Directions! I also love Neil and Kenny and, um, I'm off to google Bananagrams... x

  4. You have a lot of Australian blogs on your roll and who read you. I think that's interesting.

    Neil Diamond is a winner, in my eyes!

    You're a winner too! And deserved of the award ... You shouldn't be expected to parallel park with so many heads to try and look through ...

    Thank you for the nomination, produce-bag producing lady.

  5. thanks so much Wendy, what an honour. it's the first time I think I've ever been called stylish.
    Love your blog and you always make me smile ( i just wish I could email sometimes after the comments you leave)
    I have a ridiculously large collection of kids books too, and no kids!
    BTW Wonklings is INSPIRED, I may have to pinch it. xo

  6. Congrats on your award!! I can't parallel park either!

    Lovely to meet/follow your blog thanks to Keep Cate Busy. Pop over to bigwords if you get a chance x

  7. What on earth is a banagram???
    Congrats on the award Miss Wendy and thanks so much for passing it on.

  8. Congrats Wendy & thanks so much! I love your 7 things, especially #5 !!


Thanks for taking the time to makes me feel a little less like I'm talking to myself again.
