Stylish Blogger Award

Thank you Ashok Sir for the generous gesture of bestowing on me this Stylish Blogger award!

Thinking ahead!

As some Bloggers see me!


Seriously now, the Rules are:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Award 5 other bloggers.
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

Is there anything you don’t know about me?

  1. Would I live my life over again knowing what I now know?  YES!  The past is what shaped me into the person I am today.
  2. I hate being late for an appointment. It is much worse when someone else causes me to be late.
  3. Laughing with friends is my favourite pastime.  Laughing is like jogging on the inside and good for my heart & health!
  4. I marked the passing of an old friend this week.  I was a bouncing five-year old with a chocolate box bow on my hair when we first met.  I learned to make toffee with her daughter and when it came time to check for setting, I suggested what mammy did while jam making!  We spooned the toffee onto a plate and left it on the windowsill to cool.  No!  The local cat did not get it… and neither did we.  The toffee set as hard as a rock and we broke the plate trying to remove it!
  5. I once made wheaten bread that was heavier than a brick
  6. I always wanted to build a KIT Car Maybe not the one in the pictures, but it gives you the idea.  At one stage I went as far as buying a set of plans!
  7. The most fun I ever had with any craft project was making this:

The fascinator I wore to Elly & George’s wedding .

It was a tribute to Elly’s deceased grandmothers who both worked in Millinery.  I began with a large very fine pink sinamay bow – a bow being my signature piece throughout  my childhood.  The  feathers I had been collecting since the couple announced their engagement (long before I picked my outfit).  The wired beads were to add a little fun to the whole piece.


I will not tag anyone for the award but leave it open for anyone who wishes to take part.
