Thanks, Miss Cherrybubbles!


I wanted to say a big “Thank You” to Miss Cherrybubbles over at Past Life for giving me this award.  I love her blog-it’s  really fun and full of vintage goodness! 

Here is my list of seven facts about myself-and thanks again Andrea!

  • My first real pet was a guinea pig named Snoopy.  I used to take him for walks using a tiny cat collar and leash.


  • In my immature youth I “tagged” a water tower and a sidewalk.  (Bad, I know-and I’m sorry!)


  • I like any and all of the chocolates in a box of chocolates-coconut, pink fluffy stuff, molasses…I’ll eat them all.


  • My favorite number is 19, but I dislike the number four and try to avoid it when I can.


  • I once owned a vintage pea soup green men’s golf sweater that I wore a lot.  (And I mean a lot-it was my favorite!)


  • I wish I could live in Hawaii.  I’d have a palm tree in my yard, and  I’d have coconut shrimp at least once a week.


  • I am terrified (and I mean TERRIFIED!) of spiders.  When I was little, I had a high fever and hallucinated that I was covered with them.  But I can’t kill them-so I catch them with a bug vacuum and put them outside.

Here are some blogs I love and visit as often as I can.  Check them out if you have a chance-they all deserve a stylish blogger award.

  1. Congrats on your Stylish Award! I'm so with you on the chocolate thing, anything chocolate goes!

    And thanks too for the Whole Latte Life shout-out :)

  2. Congratulations on the award! I loved reading some fun facts about you.
    And thanks for the list of new blogs to visit!

    I had a hamster and a bunny as a kid that I would take on walks. LOL
    And I had coconut shrimp just last night.
    (made a last minute dipping sauce from apricot preserves and horseradish mustard...sounds a little gross, but tasted fabulous).


  3. Thanks Joanne-you are so welcome! Glad we both love chocolate!!

    Kimberly-your blog is pretty darn stylish too-consider yourself added to the list!!

    Could I get your recipe sometime? Coconut shrimp is one of my favorites!! Your dipping sauce sounds heavenly too!

    And cute story about your pets:)

  4. WEll deserved my friend, well deserved! ANd thanks for the mention! I too am PETRIFIED of a certain bug but I can't even spell it out. I think the love of animals in a person says a lot about them. It says that they are caring and wonderful!

  5. Thanks Kim-and you are welcome too-I love your blog!
    You are right too-animal lovers are caring and wonderful:)

  6. You totally deserve an award for your swell blog! This is such a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers better :D

  7. Thanks Andrea! I think your blog is really swell too! You know I found it quite by accident a while ago when I was searching for 49er jackets. Discovering your blog was like hitting the jackpot:)

  8. CONGRATS on your award, and Mahalo for including my blog! Hope you do get to live in Hawaii one day soon.

    I can so picture the guinea pig in the cat collar, I think I did that with my pet hamster -- poor things!!

  9. A guinea pig named snoopy? I am dying to see a picture of him on his leash!!! You can't make stuff up more interesting than real life, I tell ya.

    And thanks for the mention.
