Stylish Blogger Award

       



A few days ago I was given an award. The Stylish Blogger Award.
Mark Ruffner from Allthingsruffnerian has bestowed upon me this great honor.  Thank you Mark.  I didn't even know that you were reading my blog.  That is what is so remarkable about blogging...we have Friends everywhere and that is what keeps us blogging.





Happily I accept this honor but there are a few simple rules:

1)  Thank and link back to the person giving you the award

2)  Share seven things about yourself

3)  Chose 10 of your favorite blogs and contact those bloggers and tell them about the award

Seven things about myself:

I'm grateful to my parents who made the decision to emigrate to the Great United States of America when I was a very young girl

I have been blessed with a positive disposition

My husband wrote these for me:
ability to make something happen
unending ideas
creative stylist
having fun in creating
committed to improvement



I would like to give The Stylish Blogger Award to the following bloggers

Tongue in Cheek

My Castle in Spain

Aged and Gilded

PlumSiena

Surroundings

Art'stheAnswer

Bibliodyssey

Pas grand-chose

Georgianna Lane

THE ESSENCE OF THE GOOD LIFE


The difficult part of choosing only 10 favorite blogs is that there are so many more I would like to honor.  So instead, I will add just a few of my favorites.
Fuoriborgo
My French Country Home
From the House of Edward
Fauxology
Casa Dulce Hogar
French Kissed
Cote de Texas
The Essence of Frenchness
A Gift Wrapped Life
Belgian Pearls
La Dolfina
LaPouyette

Thank you my dear blogging friends.  I have learned so much from each and every one of you.

Gina
