Beautiful Blogger Award

Beautiful Blogger Award

        I received and award from Nita  at a Mod Vintage Life.  Her blog is beautiful, glamorous, mod and..vintage! Wait till you see her storybook home and what she did with her fireplace is near amazing! She has great style and unique tastes!
        It was so nice of her to include me in her list of beautiful blogs! I am at this almost a year and still struggle! She seems to have it down. Check out her list and then see mine below.
       I'm to choose 15 other blogs to receive the award so I will  share the following bloggers with you. Please visit their blogs, read their posts and you will see why!  You can just click on their blog titles to go to  their sites. If you look at my blog roll those are also the blogs I visit all the time. And there are plenty more on my reader, which is why I never get to post!!

      "7 Things You (may not) Don't Know About Me"
1.   I love to feed people....

2.   I love magazines like Country Living and Better Homes and Pottery Barn,Restoration Hardware  Ballard and Art and Artifact catalogs. I can't throw them away. I am in search of  Flea Market Style. I very painfully got rid of some Country Living mags dating back to their first year. Ok, Ok...I kept some Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 

3. Strawberry ice cream and lemon ices are my choice when not sharing someone else's fav (which I usually like to do)!

4. I am a substitute teacher. I taught 10 years and when my #2 came along I took maternity and never went back. Then, I had #3. I liked being home for the kids everyday and my husband was happy with it, too. I sporadically subbed while the children were little, but sub a lot more now.

I am stopping here and will come back to finish! I spend so much time reading all of your beautiful blogs, that I don't leave my self time to post!


  1. Buongiorno Nancy, thank you so much for the award! It's a good start of the day. Ciao Rita mammabellarte

  2. How nice to get to know you a little. I was, for years, a substitute teacher too.
    I'll have to take a peek at some of the posts you linked.

  3. You are so funny...stopping in the middle of a post!! I think I read way too many blogs...I just love them all!!

    Thanks so much for the award. You are SO generous. I will post it this week! Love getting to know you better. I feed people, too!


  4. Hi Nancy!
    Thank you so much for the mention, and congrats on your award! It's great to learn more about you, even if you did leave us a bit of a cliffhanger! ;-)

    Big hugs,

  5. Thank you so much sweet Nancy!!! I'm so honored that you think of my blog as beautiful!!! I love blogging but more than anything, I love the friends I've made these last three years ~ Thank again sweet friend, wishing you a wonderful week ahead ~ hugs and love, Dawn

  6. Hi Nancy-
    I am so glad I found your blog this evening.
    I am now a follower.
    I am a retired teacher and had I stayed home for a while, I might not have gone back either!

    Drop by if you have time,

  7. Nancy, this was so generous of you to acknowledge my blog. I thoroughly enjoyed your foodie pictures! Yes, ma'am, you do have a great kitchen--lots of great food for your loved ones. I was a substitute teacher when I was in college. The phone call would come at 6 am, and I could only sub on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I enjoyed it.I'm way behind on blogging, as Mister was sick over the weekend, and we thought we would have to take him to the emergency hospital. It turned out he was just constipated! I turn everything into a major drama with him and Dr. Big. Is it the writer in me or just my Southern genes? LOL

  8. Thanks so much Miss!!!! I loved finding out a little bit more about you.......I'll get going on a post with my 7 things soon!

  9. Thank you so much for the award! I appreciate it and appreciate you reading the blog!!! Have a wonderful day!


Please leave a comment~ I'd love to hear what you have on your mind!
