Two Awards

Hyla from Green Earth Journey as made a wonderful award for blogs promoting "Green"! (You can read more about it on her blog). My blog is one of the first 11 blogs to receive this award! I am truly honored. Thank you so much Hyla! The only rules are to mention the blog that gave the award and to pass it on to blogs that promote recycling, and offer "Green" tips on their blogs. Luckily I did a whole series on recycling a while back and have a great list of amazing blogs to award this too!! So here goes:

Crafty Bitch 101
Red Neck Chic
Goal for the Green
Eco Mama
Sweet Greens

My blog also received this lovely award from Linda B's Jewelry Beaded Designs. Thank you so much Linda!! She has an amazing blog and the coolest jewerly in her SHOP. Please check out both of them!

Here's how it works...

I'm going to share seven facts about myself and then pass on the award to seven other happy bloggers! So here goes...

1. I color my hair to hide the fact that it is pretty much mostly gray. 47 is way to young to have gray hair, isn't it?

2. I just listed 2 new slouch bags!! (remember - I'm not above self promotion while receiving awards)

3. I love entering give aways and hosting them!!

4. People who don't comment back when I comment on their blog annoy me.

5. I've started Christmas Shopping. In July?! Of course - have to beat the rush!!

6. I'm having a tough time coming up with anything interesting about myself.

7. I just had a salad for lunch!! Now for a big piece of cake!! Hey - I had a salad after all, that's healthy. (getting this ready thurs. noon)

Here are the 7 awesomely wonderful blogs that I am passing this award to (in no particular order)! You really need to check them out, I love to visit them all.

Cabin & Cub
Kim's Country Cottage
Country Mouse, City Mouse
Olive Street Studio
Where Eagles Dare
All Things Tangled

  3. Awesome, you totally deserve this award! I've seen how much devotion you put into the recycled/repurposed/earth-friendly movement, and your facts were very interesting. If it makes you feel any better, I have a few gray hairs and I'm in my 20's.

My cottage is decorated with red berries and stuff all year so I think it should really be called Christmas Cottage lol :o)

    Best wishes for a great weekend,
