The Versatile Blog Award

Yesterday I received some good news, amid my sleepless nights with Emilu here in paradise.  My friend Maria from Jamie Says Dream nominated me for the Versatile blog award, my first.  I was so thrilled to hear this and I want to thank Maria for this lovely nomination.  What a cool way to get to know other bloggers! Here are the rules:

  1. Nominate 10-15 fellow bloggers
  2. Inform the bloggers of their nomination
  3. Share 7 random things about yourself
  4. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award Pic on your blog post.

Here are my blog nominations (and if your blog isn't listed it doesn't mean I love it less):

  1. Design Mom 
  2. exPress-o
  3. Oh Joy!
  4. Standing in the moonlight
  5. Arianna Bell
  6. The modern sophisticate
  7. Jamie says dream
  8. {this is glamorous}
  9.  A beautiful mess
  10. Not your average day
  11. So about what i said...
  12. Unstitched.
Seven random things about me:
  • I try to eat one apple a day to keep the doctor away.
  • My number one pet peeve is organization; my closets are impeccable and I've tried to organize my refrigerator.
  • I am a Vegetarian.
  • Reading makes me whole. I go through author phases; I'm still recuperating from a Salman Rushdie phase. 
  • Sometimes I sleep with a light on, because I'm afraid of the dark (too much fiction, I tell you)
  • I was a tomboy, which explains my weakness for boyish looks.
  • As much as I love the city, I wish I lived on a farm.


  1. It's so fun to read the 7 random things about you! And this way we get a list of new blogs to visit, maybe one or more will be a favorite :-)

    Have a great week, versatile blogger!

  2. Oh, I love this idea. Wonderful picks!

  3. Oh, thanks so much for the award!!! I loved reading your 7 things too!

  4. I'm perpetually torn between farm and city too. And I love that you said that reading makes you whole. It does have magic like that, doesn't it?

  5. Congratulations! Even though I live on a farm, I sometimes wonder what it would be like to live in the city (:

  6. Congrats on the nomination. I'll have to check out the blogs you've listed - they're all new to me.

  7. I loved reading those things about you and I also try to eat one apple each day. My mom always told me to and I still do it now:) Congrats on the award, sweetie and thank you so much for it as well. Totally made my morning! Muah

    P.S: I adore the city too but sometimes I think it would be so cool to have a tiny little house with a huge garden somewhere in Ireland:)

  8. Thanks everyone for stopping by. It was really fun, although one or two blogs on the list found my informing them of this blog post and of their nomination rather offensive or thought it was spam. I guess that's a by-product of blogging etiquette. Happy week everyone!
