For the lovely and stylish

The two lovelies Michelle Merril and Brooke Busse have passed along the One Lovely Blog Award, and the ever stylish Girl Friday has given me the Stylish Blogger Award.

Thank you, ladies! You are all lovely and stylish.

I have previously listed a few facts about myself here & here. My brain hurts trying to think about something else interesting about me. Ummm...

  ~  I have two brothers, one is thirteen years older than me, the other, also known as the 'little' brother, is 6 foot 4 inches.
My grandmother, Anne Boyd

  ~  I am an animal person in a big way. At one point when I was about twelve, we lived in what could only be called a menagerie. We had 22 guinea pigs, a duck, a rat, a horse, two cats and a dog.

  ~  I am related to Arthur Boyd, a famous Australian painter. Not sure what the terminology is but my granddad, John √° Beckett Boyd (known as Pat) was Arthur's cousin. I never met granddad Pat, but my grandmother Anne (known as Annie - Grannie Annie when we were little) turned 91 this year.


Ok, enough about me, here's a few blogs that I think are lovely and stylish:

Lana is a new blogger and she's off to a great start. Go check her out at Lana's Write Words.

Barbara blogs about all sorts, but mostly writing at Scribbles & Jots

I've already given Maggie the Stylish Blogger Award, but I think her blog, Words, Wine & Wanderlust, is lovely too.

 
I think all you awesome followers are lovely & stylish too. Hope you're having an wondiferous day!

  1. Awesome! It's nice when someone knows who I'm talking about. Usually I just get blank stares (not that it comes up in conversation that often).
