Stylish Blogger Award

Boulder Locavore has just published picks for the Stylish Blogger Award. And, you guessed it, I won!

The award is bestowed by peers who feel your blog is stylish. Once you receive the award, you must complete three simple tasks:

  1. Thank the blogger who bestowed the award
  2. Share 7 things about yourself
  3. Give the award to other stylish bloggers

A big thanks to Boulder Locavore for the award. I read her blog every day and always find inspiring (and stylish) ideas. I love the way she includes history and background about the recipes she provides, as well as interviews with fantastic cookbook authors, not to mention cookbook giveaways. Since her recipes are seasonal, recipe ingredients are easy to find and I feel great about buying local items. Her posts are a pleasure to read; such eloquent words.

Seven things you may not know about me:

1.  Beginning at age three, I begged my mother for ballet lessons
2.  I started ballet when I was four

Russian Doll, Nutcracker 1976
I'm the shrimp on the far left

3.  I danced until I was 16 and I've missed it ever since
4.  I've been a voracious reader since first grade
5.  I cried when I read Charlotte's Web in grade school

6.  My mother taught me to embroider when I was seven
7.  My first car was an early 70s black and yellow Plymouth Scamp

On to my picks for the award:

La Femme Notoire
bloesem kids
50 danska kvadrat
Where the Lovely Things Are
Paloma's Nest
one flew over
Andrea Reh
angry chicken
A Merry Mishap
Renegade Handmade

Congratulations to all! What a happy day.
