Kreativ Blogger Award

Words can't express how touched I was to receive a nomination from Rita at A Refocused Life 



Rita does the things she loves and that make her smile and she passes it along. I feel it in what she writes and the images she provides for us. She is a very talented lady. How lucky are we all to have such talented people around us? Everyone I come across enriches my life in a special way and for that I am most grateful. Rita is one of them. 
Now..one of the requirements for this award is to list seven things about yourself 
that others may not know. Hmmm....


  1. I love aprons...collect them, wear them all the time and have very specific requirements when purchasing.  Must have extra long ties to comfortably get around me so I can tie in a big bow. Must be cotton and easy to iron. Yes, I admit, I iron my aprons and dare I say my teatowels too. Must be longish and wrap around me and I don't like any metal on them...they clunk around in the dryer...most annoying. 
  2. I have a bit of a bird think happening.  I collect CD's of bird sounds as we move from country to country. I like to collect objects of birds in any shape or form. Always an easy gift for anyone that knows me. 
  3. I took up painting, exhibited, sold one and stopped. I am waiting for the spirit to call again...
  4. I am the oldest of six and a Virgo...dare I say more? :)
  5. I am the world's biggest softy...touching advertisements of any sort and I am gone. My family keeps me well stocked in tissue when we watch movies together.
  6. I have been a stay at home Mom for 16 years now. I stopped after the third child and then their was the fourth and then came volunteering...time flies.
  7. I still BELIEVE that anything is possible and to never stop trying.

    Here is my checklist of things to do: Thank the person who nominated me for the award, copy the logo and place it on my blog, link to the person who nominated me, list 7 things people may not know about me, nominate 7 creative bloggers, post their links and leave a comment on each

    Seven Creative Bloggers-
    Special mention to Susie @ The Mill House 
    who would be on this list except she has already been nominated by Rita :)
    And that is it for me and I thank you for reading !

    4. Maybe sometime you can photograph your collection of aprons for us so that we can marvel? And I iron them too; no point being busy about the kitchen if I can't be photogenically so.

    5. CONGRATULATIONS Jeanne
      VERY WELL deserved indeed!

      Your blog is a delight! I have learned so much about many different things from your posts following your blog.

      Very interesting to learn about your art work (can we see some?), your love for aprons (tto- can we see some?), and your love for birds; we definatly have some things in common.

      Thank you for nominating me and am now starting to work on my post for it ...

      Again CONGRATULATIONS and until next time I wish you good health, heaps of love, loads of laughter and joy.

    7. Thank you Jeanne for this honour! MOTH is also the eldest child & is a Virgo too - are you able to perform complex neurosurgery with the contents of your toiletries bag too? I loved #7 on your list - eternal optimism is the key to a wonderful life in my books.
      Millie ^_^
