Beautiful Blogger Award

Hello Everyone.  Today I have been bestowed with the Beautiful Blogger award.  (you can't see but I'm blushing a bit as I'm not the kind that is comfortable with receiving awards)   So thank you, Ramblings of a Newbie Pagan who has so graciously given me this beautiful blog award!  I am often amused that anyone would find what I had to say worth reading or want to view my photos and even go so far as to leave a comment or two. What I am is grateful for are all of your friendships and delightful words and that, to me, is worthy of you all receiving a Beautiful Blogger award.    

So in keeping with the “rules” for the beautiful blogger award, I must:
 1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
 2. Share 7 things about yourself.
 3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

What I like about this award is that you have the opportunity to share blogs that you have newly discovered.  Something that I have a recently had a treasure trove of.  Please be warned that my taste is highly eclectic but then that is the fun of this award.  You get to share what you find interesting blogs with others.  So here goes. 

Seven random things about me:

1.  I won the UN Poster contest three years in a row as a child in Catholic School.

2.  I wear vintage clothing whenever I can and at one time I had over 250 hats in my personal collection.

3.  My top five books are "To Kill A Mockingbird", "A Prayer for Owen Meany", "The Lovely Bones", "The Stand" and "The Color Purple".

4.  I must eat a piece of "good" chocolate every day.

5.  When the world around me begins to shudder, I will often make soap or spin fiber.  Both activities set the energy around me to a more gentle turn.

6.  My baby sister and I can dissolve into a puddle of giggles over the stupidest things.

7.  I still use a fountain pen to sign my name.

Now for the 15 newest sites I have recently discovered, I hereby award the Beautiful Blog to are:

1. Extraordinary work in paper.  Love his "The traveling corpse project."

2.  Delightful blog and just plain joyful.

3.  Step by step on repurposing furniture and other decorative elements.

4.  Lovely digital art.

5.  Fun little blog to visit...crazy about the name.

6.  More terrific digital art.
7.  The name of this blog alone announces that this will always be a fun blog to visit.
8.  Knitting, fiber, ravelry...what more could you ask for.
9.  Fell in love with the name of this blog as I have a merchants soul, toss in a dash of mermaids and I'm all over it.
10.  Just a sweet, gentle blog full of snippets of everyday life. 
11.  Everything pinup.  Always a fun blog to visit.
12.  Okay, this is a girlfriends blog who I am shamelessly promoting...but it does fit the category for this award as she is a new blogger, but boy is it a delightful one.
13.  Another girlfriends blog who I am also shamelessly promoting...but it also fits the category for this award as she began her blog the same time piggy tales did.  She is a sweet soul and both are the ladies from my Sunday afternoon build a blog get together.
14.  Inspiring and joyful work by this doll artist.
15.  This is my kind of clutter and I know you will enjoy visiting this blog as often as I do.
So there you have it, 15 new blogs to visit if you are not already aware of their existence. I hope you enjoy getting to know them and "newbie pagan" thanks for the Beautiful Blogger Award.

Thank you so much for your award. I am really flattered. However my life is very chaotic and busy just at the moment, so I am unable to pass it on to 15 bloggers, however I will endeavour to do what I can over the next few weeks... Love your blog too. Best wishes, Lizzie
