On February 15th, a great gal named Tracey Steele from www.breathingenglishair.blogspot.com was kind enough to give the Versatile Blogger award to me. And then, the author and blogger Jenny Woolf from www.jennywoolftravel.blogspot.com was sweet enough to do the same! Therefore, I have concluded that I am truly versatile and I really need to think of some things about myself pretty quickly! Thank you to both of these wonderful writers and I shall accept this award and will post the nice green sign somewhere on my blog, as soon as I figure out how to do it.
You are supposed to list seven facts about yourself but Jenny had a great idea and she posted some photos that really told a lot about her. This is a great idea and I hope she won't mind if I copy that idea! (After posting seven things, you then bestow the versatile blogger award to seven others, letting them know, of course.)
This is a sweet potato that my Daddy saved for me because he knew that I would think it was hilarious. He really knows his daughter, doesn't he?
I really love to take photos of flowers and trees but this really caught my eye. I loved the contrast in the two greens here. This was taken in Madison, Georgia. (Nearby town where my Dad lives.)
I am not a good cook or baker but I have made Christmas cookies for years and SOMETIMES they come out really well. The cookie cooker in the shape of a bird? That came FREE in a magazine, English, of course!
At Christmas, I always have one special card that I must have close to me...this is one that I tacked up in my work area and I kept it there long after Christmas!
The Monastery which is right here in Rockdale County is an oasis of great peace and beauty.
We were able to go on a bluebell walk in England in May of 2010. This was just so beautiful to me. Thank you, Joan and Peter, this meant more to me than you can possibly imagine!
This is a photo of my dear husband and sweet son just before we went on our last walk at Panola Mountain.
Hopefully, you can tell a bit about me from these photos that I have just posted!
Now, for the bloggers that I have nominated for The Versatile Blogger award! They are (in no particular order):
All of these bloggers write about many different things so I think that should qualify each and every one as being a versatile blogger!
Wait, didn't I say in my title something about a giveaway? It's only something small but my husband and I were very happy to find a slim book about Stone Mountain that was packed with lots of information. I have chosen this book as a giveaway since this is....drum roll please.......my 100th post!
If you leave a comment on here, I will put all the comments into one of my son's hats and one day during the coming week, I will draw a name and mail this book to the name chosen!
GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED: THANK YOU FOR READING MY BLOG AND I HOPE TO HAVE ANOTHER GIVEAWAY. Scriptor Senex and Audrey Goes Local were the winners...I pulled TWO names from the hat, just for fun. And it was fun, joyful even. Wishing you joy!
